Again, this week I fell for another All-American/Vintage brand. :) Greenwich Vintage Co. is a menswear- mainly repurposed shoes- shop out of Waconia, MN. With Tamas "Zen" Pomazi cobbling the coloured soles- kind of like their version of a Louboutin red sole- and Max Miller in accounting, the brand began in 2011.
On their website (they don't have a physical location), there are four ways to buy their bold repurposed shoes.
- Built to Order: You can completely customize a pair of wingtip shoes, starting at US$275. Like totally customized- choose you shoe colour, sole type, midsole colour, inlay style, and shoe size/width. They have black, white, and cream soles, but why not go bold with red, pink, or blue?
- Iconic Colourways: Let them make the decisions and pick a wingtip shoe with the most popular shoe colours and sole colour and types for US$245.
- Resole&Restore: If you already have a pair of wingtips, boots, or chukkas (like an ankle boot) that you totally love... but maybe loved too much- let Greenwich Vintage revitalize them. At US$225 you can send your shoes in and pick a new sole type, sole colour, and midsole colour.
- Ready to Wear: Sold in one size only at various prices, you can order a pair that are already made. No customizations or different sizes are available however.
Made to Order Example:
Below is a pair of shoes with a red sole and midsole colour. The sole type is commando. The inlay is two-tone dye, with brown wingtips only, like this pair. And like all Greenwich Vintage Co's shoes, coloured laces.

You can read more about the ways to buy them on their contact&FAQ page. Or follow them on facebook, twitter, or instagram.
Their shoes are all repurposed in the US, but for my international readers-- they do ship to the UK, France, Japan, and China.
