Aren’t you tired of everyone wearing the omni-present, same ol’, mass produced, shoe brands that everyone – and I mean everyone – is wearing? Well, I am!
So I went shopping for myself…and for you ladies, for those unique, one of a kind, luxuriously comfortable and affordable designer shoe brands that no one – and I mean no one yet – is wearing in Vancouver.
One of my favourite new shoe brands is Joaquim Ferrer of Barcelona, Spain. I may be biased because I myself am European and I also love a great family business with tradition!
Behind the Joaquim Ferrer brand name is exactly that: a family business that traces its roots to a young and talented prêt-à-porter designer, based in Barcelona in the early 1970’s. Joaquim Ferrer has a real sense of glamour and creates unique, one-off designs for catwalks, fashion shows and television. For his sleek top-end shoe designs the brand uses exquisite materials, the finest leather with exotic prints and ultra-rich texture often specially designed in workshops in Florence. Interested yet? The brand has found a perfect balance between fashion trends and functionality, and always aims to combine sense of style, versatility and comfort. The result: handmade shoes and handbags created for fashionable, confident and active women that have places2go (see what I’ve done there?) …priced for every shoe lover’s pocket, ranging between $300 and $500.
I once said to Joaquim that he creates a Ferrari but we can buy it for the price of a Mercedes. Yes, you’re right...not the $80 pair of shoes from Winners downtown …but remember, no one – and I mean no one – has yet worn Joaquim Ferrer shoes in Vancouver.
So if you, too, are tired of the same ol’, mass produced, big shoe brands, and you want to express YOUR uniqueness and sense of style, all you have to do is start wearing unique, creative, one of a kind – just like you – shoes2go, everywhere in style!
Next time let’s talk Capodarte shoes, from Brazil and their colourful summer collection.
