My most recent trip to New York brought me to my NYC favorites: Chinatown and SoHo.  After a pit stop in Chinatown for some grub, we made our way up to  SoHo, where we passed up a spot called Shoe located on the corner of Mulberry and Prince. Upon entering, I came to the realization that I had entered a shrine of handcrafted shoes.  Shoe exclusively carries CYDWOQ, a brand which, according to the salesperson, hand makes all their shoes in LA.  While I browsed through the shoes, I found this pair called the Tibet, which I eventually picked up. The Tibet’s upper is malleable. It can be manipulated to accommodate your foot’s mood- you can fold the tops down, or wear them straight up like a boot.  CYDWOK’s insoles are steel reinforced leather and outsoles are covered by rubber.  They’re rather comfortable to walk in and are reminiscent of Clark’s Desert Boot without the gum outsole. Check out CYDWOK’s website to find your local retailer.
