Stiff gentlemanly loafers are a classic in every man’s closet. A multi-occasion shoe, they can be worn to formal gatherings, business meetings, and casual get-t0gethers. But they always appeared a bit stiff and stodgy until London socialite Alexandra Finlay launched Fin’s two years ago.
Finlay’s brand takes the loafer concept to a new level and injects the classic shoe with playfulness and style. These classic, simple, and fun shoes are renowned for their bright playful colors and can be worn by men of all ages. What’s even better, they are now available for purchase in the UAE.
“I wanted to create a range of shoes that I felt all the men I knew would want to wear, again and again, year after year. It was very important for me to price the range at a point that keeps the brand fun; I wanted boys to be spoilt for choice…and therefore buy them all!” says Finlay.
With Fin’s there is certainly no shortage of choice. The most popular style, the George, comes in 15 colors including “mystic raspberry” and “ibiza pistachio.” Other collections include the Reggie Leather Loafer and Ciao Bello!, Fin’s Amalfi Collection. Celebrity personalities such as Bruce Willis, Sting, Daniel Merriweather, Jonathan Ross, Bradley Cooper, and Valentino have worn the chic shoe brand. Fin’s shoes are hand-stitched in a family-run factory in Portugal are socked in Harrod’s and Selfridges in London and now exclusively at Boutique 1 in Dubai.
“I was really excited when Boutique 1 approached me. My shoes have always been really popular in the Middle East. When we were carrying them at Selfridges, I’d find a lot of customers would come over to London and buy eight to ten pairs at a time,” said Finlay in a recent interview. Well, now the men of Dubai don’t have to take a flight to London to buy a pair–they are now right around the corner at Boutique 1 on JBR walk ready for you to snatch.
