Well Footed

Surprisingly, this Spring footwear has taken a decidedly heavier turn.  Sure, strappy sandles still have their place but the footwear du jour is a chunkier wedge, wooden sole, or platform.  It’s surprising because one usually associates the lighter clothing options with lighter-looking footwear.  Not so this season.  The chunky, heavy sole adds some welcome weight to ethereal summery wardrobe staples.  It keeps the look grounded.  Stead-fast and sturdy footed for still uncertain times and terrain.  A sartorial metaphor.  I just received two new shoes from Farylrobin that both execute this trend quite well.  The first, Owen, pictured above, features a solid wood platform and woven leather cross-straps.  Though it’s black, it shows a lot of skin, and is a great summer sandal; from everyday to evening wear.  The next shoe, the Madison, is a beaute.  A solid wedge with a peep toe adds some major drama to whatever you’re wearing.  This style has been a best seller for Farylrobin.  Claim your size while they last!A new line to Veridis this spring is Ash.  This company makes incredible affordable shoes and our first delivery from them will knock your socks off!  The Lenny, pictured below, has a low wooden heel and a leather ankle strap.  You don’t have to be wearing stilettos to be dramatic; Lenny is adorned with studs, across the toe and around the ankle.  This sandal will definitely add some edge to whatever you’re wearing, be that jeans or a little-black-dress.  The best part? All three of these styles are priced under $200!!
