My Deft Footwear: What are Robert De Niro, Matt LeBlanc and Christian Slater wearing?

Posted on

What guy’s gonna wear pink-and-green loafers? You’d be surprised. Robert De Niro liked the electric pink Johnston & Murphy patent-leather shoes he wore in Martin Scorsese’s Casino so much he kept a pair, while FriendsMatt LeBlanc just purchased leprechaun-colored Hush Puppies, the newly cool casual shoes that speak to the soles of David Duchovny, Chris Isaak, David Bowie, and Christian Slater. Fueling this trend of fancy footwork is the fashion world’s return to classic looks and the new penchant for mixing conservative styles with colors often found in a Crayola crayons box.
