Spring Shoes… find out what’s new this season & which styles are making a come back!

Floral Trainers

Some favourites from previous years have returned – Gabor 46.352.93 Brunello was a big hit with staff and customers alike and all but sold out across the company.  The beautiful neutral shade has gentle iridescent shimmer that brightens up any outfit.  This season it will be joined by a silver shade that would create an on-trend casual look and be a great addition to any wardrobe.  Familiar styles from brands such a Remonte have been given a make-over in metallic shine such as Remonte R7008-60 Neditho which is a glorious gold with extra rhinestone sparkle. 

We are seeing so many more brands branching out into metallic colours.  Rieker have combined neutral and metallic colours to create 56061-80 Brunodee, a stunning casual shoe that would look great with jeans or a skirt.  It you really want to stand out from the crowd then Marco Tozzi 24738-20915 Malita is the shoe for you, the pewter metallic colour and bold bow embellishment would create a real statement look. 

Spring Shoes – The Floral Trend

The floral mosaic design on a dark blue background that was first seen in Gabor 63.700.46 Lanzarote has returned and can now be found on a casual slip on 82.641.41 Epworth and a lacing sports shoe 86.458.16 Amulet.  This design motif can be seen across a range of brands now such as Rieker 43711-90 Miropi who have modified the design onto more refined lines in keeping with its shoe designs. 

The floral mosaic design on a neutral background was also first seen in Gabor Amulet is back in new colours which are sure to fly off the shelves as fast as it did last season. The same design motif is available in Gabor 82.620.24 Splash, a brilliant casual slip on that effortlessly brightens up your outfit.  One of our made to order brands has also created their own take on this popular design motif in IMAC 108341-721413 Savana Mule and 106192-721413 Penny Pump.  Meanwhile Tamaris have adapted the design idea to create 22304-20908 Myrica 81, an elegant ladies shoe with a low wedge heel.

Remonte have brought back their own take on the floral mosaic design motif in a number of different styles.  The lace up casual shoe R3431-12 Livloop has the floral motif aired with navy leather while the casual slip-on shoe R3427-92 Liviola pairs it with neutral leather.  Both these colour combinations create stunning looks that would work well with trousers or a skirt.

Floral motifs are always a popular style of spring shoes and best-selling comfort brand Rieker has been leading the way by using it their range of shoes.  Rieker 68879-90 Barrier are a stylish ladies walking sandal combining all the technology for comfortable walking with stunning on-trend design, everyone is sure to ask where you got your sandals from if you wear these!  If you are looking for a casual shoe to wear while walking around town you can choose between a slip-on Rieker 58766-90 Bocco and a low-heeled shoe Rieker 43771-90 Mirofa.   Ecco shoes are known for their superb comfort and high quality materials so it is with pleasure we present 430033-51032 Soft 7 Ladies and 430033-51032 Soft 7, a slip on and a lacing shoe respectively which have an almost jungle-style floral design.

Long lazy summer days are reflected in the number of casual slip-on shoes that are on offer this season.  If you’re anything like me you wander around in bare feet in hot weather when at home, so a shoe you can quickly pop on your feet on your way out the front door is ideal.  Heavenly Feet are aptly named as a cushioned insole cradles your foot as you walk in 8125-30 Carnation which comes in three wearable shades.  If sport luxury is your thing then look no further than Gabor 82.581.26 Angela, a sport-design inspired wedge with fun rhinestone detailing on the toe – comfort and style all in one.  Nikki, the manager in our Inverness store, obviously agrees as she bought a pair as soon as they arrived. Rieker 53717-40 Bocciadi combines so many trends in one practical package: a fabulous neutral metallic colour and the floral design is punched through the upper to allow your feet to breathe, what could be better!

And not to overlook the smart evening shoes – like magpies we are all attracted to the sparkly shoes!  A firm favourite is Tamaris 29302-20552 Anaya which is an elegant mid-heeled peep toe court shoe in a gorgeous feminine pink with rose gold metallic sparkle and detailing around the toe.  Irregular Choice is a niche brand and 4255-30a Hey Fever is no exception, an explosion of metallic sequins and glitter with a flower decoration these shoes are not for a shy wallflower!  The popular Marco Tozzi heeled sandal 28732-20197 Paduya returns in a metallic silver colour, a classic open-toed style that can go from casual days to elegant evenings.
