The Only Shoes You’ll Need This Spring

September 16, 2019

The jury's still out on the on-going summer V winter debate, but finally, everyone's favourite season is here, and the Spring 2019 forecast calls for more flats, wild patterns, ethically handcrafted products and strappy sandals!

A wise woman once said “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” That wise woman was Miranda Priestly. To honour the wise, all-knowing character that she was, we’re saying thank you, next to florals in our 2019 Spring blog and make way for these sustainably made, comfortably chic, patterned shoes! 
 

Mule’s Paradise

 

Get it, like fool's paradise...cos you’d be a fool if you didn’t get your hands on these beautifully handcrafted, block-heeled gems!
 
The Lala Mule needs no introduction, but I’ll make an exception for all the newcomers. [Welcome, have a seat and a minosa] You may remember me preaching the Gospel about the Lala’s in my previous blog, ‘Why you absolutely need block heels in your life’ I do recommend reading that one as it spills the tea on why block heels are the new stilettos. 
 
I could go on and on about why you need this shoe in your life but let’s cut the crap, it’s the start of a new season, you’ve been working your ass off all year, you rarely do anything for yourself because you’re always putting everyone else first, whether it’s making dinner for hubby or simply dealing with day to day stressors. You don’t really need a reason to treat yourself. The Lala’s are the perfect Spring shoe as they instantly elevate any look, we have a range of colours to shop, and they make a cool clickety-clack sound when you walk so you feel like a boss lady whenever you wear them!

 

Style Tip

Don’t be afraid to add colour and texture when pairing the Lala with your outfits! They go really well with a pleated skirt, as well as a wide leg or fitted pant. Try pairing them with your favourite pair of socks for a fresh, Spring look!

 

Zola Budding

The Zola in latte and speckled gold bovine are perfect for women who are at peace with themselves and their sense of style. Women who wear these gems create their own trends and are their own inspiration. The Zola is fun, she’s quirky and she’s super chic! The juxtaposition between the soft colours and exquisite detail makes dressing up all the more fun!

Style Tip

These gems are best worn without socks and can be paired with a black pant for a work look, or a flowy dress or a day out. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colours and patterns. You’ll thank us later.

Something Boyish

 

 

If you’re looking for something timeless, with an #africhic twist, then the Oxford was made for you. We recreated the once academic style shoe and transformed it into the ultimate all in one shoe, which prioritizes comfort, has the appearance of a takkie and is also super chic!

 The newest addition to our Oxford collection is the creamy, dreamy Liyana Trio In Rose This Neopolitan-Esque gem is sure to melt your heart. I don’t even blame you for not wanting to continue reading this blog because you’re running to our site to bag this beauty! 

Style Tip

The combination of rose, toffee and latte shades blend together to create the cutest Spring addition. The softness of the colours allows you to be as playful as you’d like to be when styling this shoe! Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns. Pair the Liyana with a black pant for a chic, corporate look, or dress it down with cute paper-bag shorts.


Take A Tau

Okay, I know I’m not supposed to pick a favourite between my children, but if I absolutely had to, it would be this gem. 


There’s just something about an oversized bow on a sandal that gets me excited, you know? I mean, who doesn’t wanna look a little extra sometimes? (I say this as I write this blog in my pink Romy & Michelle feather top with matching skirt and heels.) The African spin on the bow sandal is a staple for Spring and is also ridiculously comfy, ladies. They’re the perfect style for trips to the market and for Summer dates.

Style Tip

Look like a fashion-conscious baddie all summer long by styling the Tau Bow Sandal with absolutely anything in your closet!  Wear them to the mall when you’re doing grocery runs, or to the beach, reading your fave book, listening to the waves crash in the background.

 

Bootie Frutti

Like avos, our Dineo booties are transeasonal, which means you can wear them all year round! Our vintage-inspired, lace-up bootie comes in all your fave shades, including a new olive shade, just in time for Spring!

Style Tip

Dineo boots look great styled with a tiered maxi skirt, gently flared jeans or a denim dress.

  

Era of the Benya

Perky yet polished. This is the first thought that comes to mind when thinking of this gem. The Benya is sophisticated, yet fun and comes in a variety of shades and patterns which perfectly suit the colour tones of Spring 2019! Ditch the stilettos for something a little more fun this season.

Style Tip

The Benya is one of our most versatile shoes and can be styled with almost anything, from your favourites shorts, to a super chic suit.

 

Not only is our 2019 Spring collection as cute as anything, but our shoes are also made from aniline leather, which lasts literally forever if you look after them well enough. Our shoes are also transeasonal and are made to last more than just a season.
