The story behind Gourmet and how it came to be has helped the brand to defy categorization since its founding in 2005. The brainchild of three white collar--turned--streetwear designers, Greg Lucci, Greg Johnson, and Jon Buscemi, the line works to link old-world Italian influences and menswear craftsmanship with modern fabrics and trends, allowing the brand to find its own place in the men's fashion world with just the right touch of laid-back luxury. Each piece, including this Quattro Skate LX, possesses a quiet confidence and complexity that is hard to replicate, constructed with imported brown crocodile printed nappa leather with a soft leather liner and a papyrus-colored rubber cupsole. The silo itself is a mid-height boot, finished with a leather heel pull and simple Gourmet tag in white on the tongue. Find yourself a pair now at their own online store or one of their stockists.
