Following the successful reintroduction of the UniSex Trashville Boots, JC's is proud to re-release the ever-popular Quixote boots in UniSex sizes, via the built-in ReSizer. These boots (like the Trashville boots) can be worn either under a pair of jeans, or over tight pants. They are available in four colors: black, brown, clay and maroon. They are available in Copy OK and Transfer OK versions, and Demos and Fatpacks are all at JC's main store.

Way back in August '06, JCS released Trashville boots. These boots, being somewhat outdated in style, were withdrawn a year ago. Recently I came across a pre-made sculpty boot shape that is perfect for the re-release of the Trashville brand. While the boot shape is not mine, the textures are completely new and all my own work. The new boots come in two classic styles "Engineer" and "Harness" and in two colors, black and brown. These new boots are totally UniSex via the built-in ReSizer that goes from XS to XXL. They are available in Copy OK and Transfer OK versions, and Demos and Fatpacks are all at JC's main store.

"Vader's" are totally UniSex via the built-in ReSizer that goes from XS to XXL. They are available in Copy OK and Transfer OK versions, and Demos and Fatpacks are all at JC's main store. Vader's (named after "Daft" Vader, footwear designer for Universe One Star shoes) come in Black canvas, All-Black GoreTex (R), Cocoa (with leather detailing), Cream canvas, Gray canvas, Khaki canvas, Red canvas and Russet (with leather detailing).
In the interests of full disclosure, I must declare that the sculpty shape used in these shoes is not mine, unlike the hand-drawn textures, which are all my own work. I am in the process of learning to create sculpties, because ultimately it will give me the ability to create shoes that aren't possible with prims alone. Unfortunately there is a steep learning curve to negotiate before I can create my own sculpties, so in the meantime I used an excellent pre-made shape. Please stop by the store and check them out.

When I first began selling shoes in Second Life, I made them Transfer OK, since that reflected the way that we use objects in RL. But over the years, many people asked me to make Copy OK versions, because if you keep outfits in Folders (which makes it much easier to switch from one look to another), then you need to be able to make multiple copies of the shoes.
For those people who want to buy shoes as gifts, fear not! In the entrance to the store is a Transfer OK vendor. If you want to send Copy OK shoes as a gift, please contact Cobbler-in-Chief, Eponymous Trenchmouth
Following hard on the heels of KiX comes Miami, a summer shoe. Ideal for the beach and the boulevard. Pastel canvas in cream, sage, pale blue and peach, with leather detailing. Wear with shorts or slacks; socks optional.

In a move that has stunned shoe industry insiders, ashen-faced Eponymous Trenchmouth announced today his first new men's shoe in almost nine months.
KiX might be called a "crossover" - part sneaker and part loafer. Available in black, blue, green and red, the shoes have a flexible non-slip sole tinted to match the leather/GoreTex (R) two-tone uppers.

JCS has a new store! Over the past week, the JCS Building Dept has been busy creating a brand new flagship store for the JCS empire. The term "flagship" is particularly apt, because the new design bears a striking resemblance to a side-wheel paddle steamer! Taking inspiration from the ocean-side location, the new building offers shoppers a much easier way to view all of our footwear. The building has a living roof with grasses and wild flowers that insulate the interior, while encouraging wildlife. Already butterflies and hummingbirds have taken up residence. Along two sides of the roof are solar panels that provide electricity. The building's interior is cooled naturally, using nautical-style ventilators and funnels. High "porthole" windows provide natural light and enhance the nautical theme. An observation deck with a telescope at the bow, faces the eternal ocean; a place to pause and watch the dolphins at play. Please stop by and explore our new home.

First is Firenze. A traditional men's loafer with a woven leather panel inset on the instep. Finished with a simple monk strap. Elegant, understated, indispensable.
Next is Sienna. Similar to Firenze but in antique brown leather and minus the woven leather panel.
Lastly there's Swingtime. A black leather dance loafer with three inset turquoise diamonds.
