I recently learnt about a website called Daniel Footwear and I thought I'd share a post about it. Independent brand Daniel Footwear has over 25 stores across the UK and also an online shop, and the brand sells their own label footwear alongside high end brands such as Alexander Wang, Charlotte Olympia and Ash Boots. The designs stocked are classic and contemporary, wearable, and competitively priced for the quality and name. Daniel also stock their own self-titled brand, established in 1993, which has gone from strength to strength, stocking well made, Italian shoes on their easy to use website as well as in their stores.
I thought it would be nice to put together a (fantasy) shopping list for the season ahead, including some styles by Daniel as well as some other high fashion brands. Of course, boots are a must-have for the autumn and winter season, and the website has these in droves; with brands from Ugg to Michael Kors represented. The ones I've picked span a few different fashion needs; there's a flat, faux-fur lined biker style by Ugg, which signals a move away from the classic sheepskin bootie and proves that this brand can transcend easily into more high-fashion wear. This versatile style would look great with skinny jeans or a midi skirt for a striking and practical look. Secondly, the high-fashion boot; this loafer/ankle boot hybrid are a key shape for AW16 and this Kennel & Schmenger pair also have a jewelled detail to the front, making them a perfect accompaniment to an evening look. Finally, from Daniel's own range, this navy suede boot is a classic daywear style elevated with the chic metallic trims to make it a pair to wear from day to night.
I don't think that winter should solely mean boots, either. For the cold, dry days, a high cut ballet pump with a small block heel - aka 'the glove shoe' is another great option worn with tights and dresses or cut off jeans and silky socks. This pair by Hogl are perfect; simple and easy to wear with a plethora of looks. Likewise, a clean, sleek leather trainer can add a touch of insouciance to a midi dress or wide legged trousers. This pair by Daniel have a flatform sole which takes them out of the realm of athleisure and into the high fashion arena. A must have!
