This year is no exception but the way to wear them has changed. While red and black are a classic combination, the softer & more on trend style is to mix red with shades of grey from charcoal right through to pale grey as pictured on the right. To give you some ideas, here’s some examples to share with your customers that can easily transition from day wear into night wear. Available in sizes 36-43.
It’s “How Is That Made” Tuesday again (yes a rather long title!) and this time you can feast our eyes on the making of a Miss Dior crocodile leather bag. Seriously this video is incredible, make it one of the best 3 minutes of your day and watch it now. Enjoy
Ok so we drool over shoes every day but have you seen how the world’s best shoes are made? Watch here and be mesmorised by the craftsmanship, time and detail it takes to make a pair of timeless Salvatore Ferragamo red pumps.
For our Real World Runway this week is the Aluna boot. Made from a suede like material, the boot is a pull on style (there is no inner zip to) with a stylish zip that wraps around the foot and ankle of the boot twice with matching tassels.
The boots material has been worked so that the material has a rumpled/wrinkled appearance and this is complimented by its colour, a gorgeous mushroom brown that
looks great with nuetral colours and the ever popular black.
It has an 8cm heel so its not super high and it can be worned either up to the knee or pushed down to the middle of the calve. Worn with tights, jeans or skirts they are great for a smart casual look. Check our website for their price.
This week “Real World Run Way” is the fantabulous Giorgia. It’s has been one of Shoe Obsession’s best seller. With a fair heel height of 10.5cm and a platform of 2.5cm expect it to be a little bit comfortable than your normal high heel shoe.
This shoe also has a zip back for easy access so you don’t need to worry about squeezing your feet in. It comes with wide criss-cross straps that embrace your feet perfectly. Available in black and taupe, it looks great jeans for a casual look, or skirts as our real world runway model shows us here!
For this week’s “Real World Run Way” we have Gabriella, another gorgeous shoe from Shoe Obsession! This heel is a whopping 14cm high with a 4 cm platform…so it only feels like a 10cm heel and is perfect for 18-28 year olds fashionists that love to stand out from the crowd!
Designed with multiple dark chocolate coloured straps with gorgeous gold squares and a zip at the back for easy access these shoes look stunning on the dance floor for night time or hot with skinny jeans for day wear. Available in size 5-10 put these shoes look like they walked straight out of Beyonce’s closet so retailers shake your booty and watch these walk out the door. Plus at a fantastic wholesale price, you’ll be able to make a great margin from these rock star heels
For this weeks “Real World Runway” we have Janet Taupe. A cute mid heel from Shoe Obsession. The material for this shoe is a PU with chalky distressed look (think stone wash) with 3 small silver flat studs, 2 on the front and one on the back for extra detail.
It has 3 buckles located around the ankle area but don’t worry you dont need to undo all of them, just the top one or 2 at the most! Each buckle is stitched onto a strong elastic to add extra give around the ankle. Heel height is 9cm and its available in 2 colours, Taupe and Blue/Black. For existing sales we’re finding that the shoe is appealing more to women in their 30+.
Sometimes the most obvious thing to do is not always so obvious! Let me explain what I mean. Being in the wholesale shoe industry we literally see hundreds of shoes every week. What strikes me as odd is that we are always looking at shoes that do not have feet in them! While a perfectly white background, fantastic lighting and photoshopped finishing touches make the shoe look great wouldnt it be good to see a shoe on a real person? Hence the creation of what we are calling “KMJ Real World Runway” meaning real shoes on real people…without fancy lighting or nice white backgrounds! So ladies and gentleman introducing Isabel – Dusty Pink…doesnt it look great on!! Pls email your comments about you think of KMJ’s Real World Runway!
