Loup-us wolf print soled shoes from Berluti
I’m not usually a fan of loafers, but I absolutely love these shoes from Berluti. Not necessarily for their style, which is cute, but for the soles. Usually lycanthropes (and Clan Gangrel) are portrayed dressing a bit more rustic and shabby, but I imagine a well-dressed moon-cursed shapeshifter might come out of wolf form wearing a pair of these with a well tailored suit to match. At the least it would eliminate the story cliché, “See those tracks? It’s almost as if the animal became a man… but that’s impossible!” It’d be more fun if they caught up with the werewolf only to find no signs of mischief but leaving them alone with, “Nice shoes!”

The copy cracks me up, however. It’s a bit like something you’d expect from the J. Peterman catalog which, before following that link, I’d only had an inkling that it really existed and had no idea how the Seinfeld spoof wasn’t all that much of a spoof. Berluti’s Loup collection:

Empreinte du Loup

Trace your path,
leave your tracks,
dance with the wolves.

Like wolves, Berluti clients love freedom and wide open spaces. They travel through cities trusting their instinct. Olga Berluti has created wild, sensual moccasins for these untameable men who travel alone or in nomadic packs.

    95% of the orders for those shoes will probably come from furries.
