Employee Favorites

Well, Fall inventory is arriving at Village Shoes and us gals have been going ape over it! We would like to share our favorite arrivals thus far with you…

Amanda:

This boot, the Paige Trapunto by Frye $348, is seriously comfortable. At 5’2″, I really need to be careful what height of boot shaft I go with…too high and it could make me look like I’m a baby wearing my dad’s boots, and too low, I could look stumpy. This boot falls inches below my knee and over time it will slouch a little. I’m happy I was able to snag my size!

I’ve had my eye on Roana by Tsubo $120 since it came in. Honestly, who can’t use a simple black ballet flat? They look great with everything, they’re comfortable enough, and they give a classic, feminine look.

And finally, my baby, Lena by Eric Michael $179. I love, LOVE, love this boot and want it so badly, but we can’t always get what we want. This boot is sold out in my size and not a day goes by that I don’t go through my wardrobe imagining how freaking fantastic I would look in this. Mr. Eric Michael, please have a heart and send me this boot in a size 36. PLEASE! 

Halle:

Halle totally has a thing for El Naturalista, so naturally she loves the N153 Iggdrasil $300. It’s insanely comfortable and the wool lining guarantees your toes will be warm throughout the chilly part of the year. 

Here’s another El Naturalista…the N868 Solar $280.  This one is pretty versatile in that it would look cute with skirts, jeans…whatever. Halle loves herself a green shoe too…doesn’t surprise me this one’s on her radar.

Just try this shoe on.  Cam2 by Chocolat Blu $109. Just do it.  I don’t think anybody can deny its comfort, including Halle.  I have a feeling I’ll see her wearing this one soon.

Cat:

The Afton 14 by Gomax $79 will look fantastic with Cat’s dress collection. The heel is broad, making height less of a chore, and in a goldish-taupey hue, they will probably look good with a lot of her wardrobe.

It’s always a good idea to invest in a nice stompin’ around boot, and Cat went with Juno by Eric Michael $209 to jump start her fancy boot collection. We think she chose well.

Stacey:

Oslo 0501 by The Art Company $225 came in yesterday, and Stacey may or may not have drooled. Like all shoes from Art, they have a rubber sole making them a bit more comfy than your average high heeled shoe. It fits nicely around the ankle and I imagine it will look nice with everything from jeans and a t, to tights with a dress or skirt.

Stacey has two energetic doggies that require multiple walks a day.  I see her putting these bad boys on when the weather’s cold and she needs something warm and simple enough that will allow her to keep up with Lucky and Siri. The N730 Nido Ella by El Naturalista $260 is the much, much nicer equivalent to an Ugg boot and much more rugged and durable.

Stacey is always on the look out for a heel that she can get away with wearing for a good chunk of the day while working.  We’re on our feet for about 7 straight hours, so finding a high heel shoe that is comfortable enough to wear more than 2 hours is a bit rough, but alas, Tiffany by Cobb Hill $115 has arrived. Cobb Hill has insoles designed by New Balance, so they have all kinds of support.

Jen:

Paris 0751 by The Art Company $225 is pretty stinkin’ cute. I mean, if you really look at it, it kind of looks like a little jacket, right? The wool top part is a collar, the green is a jacket, and the zipper is…well, the zipper. I dunno…maybe not, but it’s adorable and Jen could for surely pull this one off.

Jen and I competed for the size 36 of El Naturalista’s N863 Solar $320, but I swear that if I would have shown any interest in this boot, Jen would have attacked me screaming, “IF I CAN’T HAVE IT, NO ONE WILL!!!” Sooo…the size 36 now belongs to Jen and she’s looking forward to Fall.

So, after browsing our new arrivals, which pairs are your favorite?
