greenwich vintage co.


Beautiful, modern, quirky, traditional, handcrafted, and totally customizable, all at the same time.  These are the shoes birthed by master cobbler Tamas “Zen” Pomazi under the label Greenwich Vintage Co, based in Waconia Minnesota.  You can order a pair built-to-order with their seemingly endless menu of options (mid-sole color, sole color, sole shape, fabric inserts...), or send them an old pair of quality shoes or boots of your own and have them revamped however you wish.



More awesome shoe re-design... 

Love the concept.  And I love the shoes.  What joy!

  2. They look awesome but I think I'm a traditionalist - the blue soles and laces throw me a little. I'm still looking for that perfect pair which will make me look cool and my legs fantastic. A bit of a challenge to say the least. I think I'm on the verge of giving up and I have to concede I do not have Alexa Chung legs to carry them off.

    1. I understand, I don't think these could necessarily replace a more traditional pair, but once you've got that covered and want to bravely branch out a bit... Such an enabler... As for the legs bit, I totally disagree. I have very, ahem, athletic legs, and it never stops me from wearing my oxfords. There are some options that have a bit more of a heel, maybe that would do it for you? The Church's Constance and Catherine for example?

      Not so easy on the pocketbook, but easy on the eye for sure.
