These Heavy-Duty Armani Shoes Are Built to Survive Snow and Sleet

Giorgio Armani has made a name for himself making clothes men can actually live in, often by turning traditional design elements on their heads.


Case in point: this pebbled leather derby with exaggerated bonded seams and a (frankly massive) lug sole. And while the shoes are heavy duty, they’re not all that heavy. Plus, the sturdy tread was seemingly built for slushy Canadian sidewalks.
