Evening guys, tonight's post is dedicated to a very special pair of boots and wait for it - a pair of trainers too! Yeah trainers, who would have thought it? I've not worn anything apart from boots in years, but I thought this pair were well worth making an exception for. Alessandro Vasini is the new boot brand on the block, the man behind the brand is Alessandro. I've had the pleasure of speaking to this guy over the phone, and I can tell you he is an all round legend! He's a true rock and roll advocate, a guitarist and a craftsman. He began creating shoes as an apprentice from the age of just fifteen, Alessandro has the knowledge, experience and rock n' roll direction for big things in the shoe game. 

I've really enjoyed working with Alessandro and his brand. Over the last few weeks, I've collaborated with the brand creating some stand out imagery and filmed a short campaign video for his Black Texas Boot, which I'll be sharing soon as I've literally just finished it today! I'm super proud of my work, and I truly love this brand, so I thought I'd share everything I've created with you all in this post, and across on Instagram. Alessandro Vasini oozes rock and roll, if they're not on your radar already - they certainly need to be!

Let's move onto the shoes... I'll kick things off by telling you all about one of my favourite boots from the collection - The Texas Boot. I mean, look how sexy that silhouette is! The boots have the most perfect shaped heel, not to mention, just the right height, ticking all my boxes that I look for in a great boot. The Texas is crafted from the finest Italian calf leather and comes with a harness fastening and silver zip, embellished with three small silver rose of the wind studs. These three studs represent; the traveller and adventurous spirit of life on the road. I love the meaning behind the symbol and their prominent placement on the boot fastenings. 

I shot these beauties against a raw urban backdrop, I really wanted to reflect how cool Alessandro's footwear is, and to let the shoes do all the talking. I feel this location and shoot setup, along with the lone wooden chair made a real statement, and showcased the shoes, as well as the rock and roll brand aesthetic. 

Up next we have the Rocker High Top. It must have been around five years since my foot has been anywhere near a trainer, I'm a boot guy through and through. You know me, a pair of boots are as much a staple as my trusty hat! The Rocker is made again from a smooth, soft calf leather and has a super comfortable chunky rubber sole.

The trainer is stitched all round for long lasting wear, to tell you the truth I've been wearing these all week, as I find them so damn comfortable, I think I've become a trainer convert! The best part of the Rockers, has to be the lyrics inscribed on the outside of each shoe: 'It's only rock n' roll... but I like it'. Any shoe which references The Rolling Stones has to be up there for me!
