Take from the infamous desert boot, that gum soles are IN. F-Troupe, a new brand for us this season, is taking it to heart, and has placed it on their cross-wedge shoe too for women. We’re loving this sleek modern look of a wedge that will go nicely with tights we think for the upcoming season. Add some British flair to your shoe closet this season by dipping into F-Troupe’s styles. Whether you want a hard boot or a soft wedge, F-Troupe covers it (and with a gum sole!).
With so many styles and so many designers out there these days, shoes can tend to lose their pizazz early on in the season. And while we can try and get excited about every new shoe we see, it’s tough, honestly to get excited about another oxford or another clog. But, that’s why we love carrying the 80%20 brand, they never deliver “boring” but instead give us some juicy shoe eye candy season after season. This season, the juicy flava flav shoe we have on our shelf is the “Nory.” It’s a lil’ bit of everything: a lil’ dark ( in nature), a lil’ goth perhaps, a lil’ English with hints of Dr. Martens edginess, it’s a lil’ shine, it’s a lil’ leather, it’s a lil’ height, it’s a lil’ bite, BUT a whole lotta SPUNK. And you have to love spunk. We all need some spunk when seasons start to get cold and when days can seem longer than the longest day. For $172, you can buy spunk this season and pass along the entire spunky story of the Nory.
How about a coffee break? Why not take one with the coffee colored ALL BLACK “Classy” wedge dress shoe? No milk or sugar needed for this coffee colored shoe, it’s simple and classic AND classy, hence the name, we think. All leather and made in Europe, ALL BLACK keeps it real as far as shoe makers go. A wedge dress shoe makes for more comfort yet still is dressy enough to wear it to an interview, out on the weekends, or even for a dressy casual outfit. And for $136, the dressy AND classy wedge in coffee (and in black on our shelf too) is the real coffee break you need this week.
We’re starting off the fall season, by introducing a brand new brand to our store shelves: Sanita. It’s the one and only, “original Danish clog.” Since 1907, the clog company has been making their clogs BY HAND. No joke. We only pick the best in clogs, so we decided to go with the craftmaster of ‘em all. With a handful of styles coming in for the upcoming season, we’ve just already received the “Tanya” style. In the dark brown color and for $115, the clog gives any lady that extra height without being flashy. As a helpful note: the clogs only come in whole sizes and they’re running small. So if you’re a half size, we recommend going up not once but twice to the next whole size. The leather is hand stapled to the flawless wood on this style, and we’re already getting a good response to our first style for this new season’s brand!
Nothing like starting off the week with a brand new, cute-as-can-be Rachel Comey shoe. A new take on the ol’ infamous Barbarro bootie, is the “Bugle” bootie. Instead of the buckles, Comey has added a twist to her signature bootie–elastic. By incorporating large pieces of elastic into the leather design, the boot is an easy slide-on and slip-off shoe. Available only in black at our store and for $330 (if you’re questioning the price because you’ve never heard of RC, then we beg you to just touch, brush or feel the premium leather once, and you’ll then understand the price), the bootie is sure to as big as hit as the Barbarro.
