Footwear style trends keep things fresh and interesting, but there’s something to be said for classic shoes that have stood the test of time, too, so every wardrobe should include both. With Mother’s Day on the horizon, here are some elegant ideas for gifting mom, or for putting your best foot forward when the occasion arises.
French Sole’s take on the classic black pump melds timelessness with an on-trend heel in this Trance shoe, which comes in black suede or patent leather. Ideal for everything from boardrooms to weddings to date nights, these shoes are comfortable and well-constructed. Their chunky heel renders them in step with modern styles, and their sleek design ensures they’ll be favorites for years to come. Peruse all of the varied offerings at https://www.frenchsoleshoes.com or shop in person their Upper East Side stores. Note: French Sole has an incredible line-up for Fall ’18, too – so keep checking their website.
You absolutely cannot go wrong with Hermes in any realm, for any gift occasion. The Hermes Right Mule (in tan or black) features raw-edges calfskin with an ultra-soft leather lining and insole, and a 1.97-inch heel for strutting around town in comfort and unmatchable style. These gorgeous shoes will take you — or Mom — from day to night, and from Spring through Summer. Find them at https://www.hermes.com
For a more casual classic with an at-home comfort factor, slide into a pair of Cape Clogs. Mom will love them for cooking, gardening, painting, shopping, biking, beach visits, and more. And whether you prefer your clogs in a flowered pattern, straight-up brown leather, wool plaid, blue leather or nearly everything in-between, there’s a style to suit everyone at http://www.capeclogs.com. Choose a pair for you, choose a pair for mom. These are the real deal ,and crafted by a family of Swedes that have been making clogs for more than 150 years.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the brilliant moms!
