DF Feet

Best Men’s Footwear, August 2011

Limited-edition sneakers definitely have their purpose, boys. But so do shoes befitting men. DF Feet is the tiny spin-off of Jon Noble’s Douglas Fir menswear store across the street. The clubby digs feature a smartly edited collection of loafers, wing tips, desert boots, and unfussy sneakers that meld grown-up foot candy with a dash of playfulness. Standouts include a small but mighty selection of local cobbler George Esquivel’s loafers and construction boots, low-top leather lace-ups by Fratelli Rossetti, and Navajo-print slip-ons from the Japanese brand Sunny Sports.
