THE CHELSEA BOOT

It became popular in the famous Chelsea District in London during the 50s, and it’s fit for the urban life! With its almond toe and flat or small heel, it is comfortable and versatile. It is often characterized by the elastic band on the side, making it very easy to put on and take off - and guaranteeing its comfort.

THE CHIC BOOTIES


The chic ankle boot is a must have for all those who want a little height, but want to remain comfortable! It easily dethrones the pumps, with no compromise on the style. The block or square heel has been a must for several years, while the thin (but low!) heel is making a big comeback! Remember: if the boot is tight at the ankle, it goes under the pants. If, on the other hand, it is rather loose, then you can consider fitting the pants inside it. Try to avoid creases in the pants!

THE LACED BOOT

Chunky sole, sturdy leather, ankle height and, of course, laced up style: here you have it, the military-style boot popularized by Dr Marteen. From punks, to skinheads, to bikers it is now more popular and accessible than ever for anyone with a grunge heart.

THE FLAT SHOE

Here we include any type of shoe that is rather chic, but flat. You know, the style we wear at the office or when shopping. Derbies, loafers, ballerina, lark! Depending on the cut of our pants, we prefer the derbies for a more massive look, and the ballerina for a more tapered effect. When in doubt, we try to extend the proportion of the pants: a loose fit for a more massive shoe and a narrow cut for a thinner shoe.

THE SNEAKERS

Here is one style that has grown in popularity in recent years! We agree that the espadrille has always had exponential popularity since the 1950s, but the fact that it is now incorporated into more chic and corporate outfits is rather new. Very colourful and massive sneakers are still popular as are classics such as Converse, Vans and Reebok!
