Parisian boutique FrenchTrotters collaborated with Italy’s Buttero presenting a duo of handsome sneakers. A sophisticated take on the saddle shoe has swapped out traditionally white sections for brown leather. Laced up just the way we remember, hugged by the black cuff around the sides and ankle.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
