From the Archives of the Manolo: The Camper

Manolo says, recently the Manolo he has received several of the emails like the following from his internet friends:

What does the Manolo think of the Camper shoes? For men and women. Their new collection is out today.

This question it is one that the Manolo he has answered in the past.

*****From the Archives of the Manolo*****

Manolo says, one of the Manolo’s many internet friends has asked the Manolo the question.

I am very curious about what the manolo thinks of the camper shoes for a casual, urban-y shoe. of my friends, most would not wear, but i believe the twin line is supercute and comfty for hanging out daily. Which do you think are the most superfantastic or is the entire line too weird for the wear?

Manolo says, Manolo cannot help it, but the shoes of the Camper always make the Manolo think of the Larry David. But unlike the Larry David, the Manolo, he thinks that the Campers they are not all that.

The trouble with the shoes of the Camper is that they were the very trendy shoes for whom the moment it has passed.

In the opinion of the Manolo, the better choice, but in the vein of the similarness, are the shoes of the John Fluevog, although Manolo suspects that the same thing–the style which will not outlive the moment of the trend–will happen to the Fluevog in the time of three or four of the years.

The exceptions to this, they are the shoes of the Camper and the Fluevog which are modeled on shoes of the past.

For the example, this Camper shoe for the mens, the 1910, it is one of the few of the Camper shoes of which the Manolo approves.
Camper - 1910 - 34993 (Tan) - Men's   Manolo Likes!  Click!
As you can see, this shoe it is based on an honest stout-hearted men’s shoe of the past, and because of this it is quite good.

Manolo says, the trick to fashion is to buy the things which are very current, yet have the feel of the timelessness. This is why the things that are gimmicky, they do not last.

Manolo says, so to summarize, with the shoes of the Camper the Manolo he is all, meh, the boat of the Manolo they do not float.

    I agree with the Manolo. The alleged Camper shoes are unattractive for urban wear, and unsuitable for actual camping. For that matter, the shoes above are unsuitable. The trick to camping is to be comfortable (including dry) and have good stability and traction. That way you can enjoy your surroundings and activities without being distracted by discomfort, or blisters, or sprains. Unless, of course, your camping is done in the backyard. Check out Montrail; I think the Canadians do it best.
