Trotters is stepping their game up this fall. With a slew of new styles and colors, the brand takes classic fashion and updates it beautifully.
Vintage is back, and many brands are pumping out fun, classy designs. We’ve seen loafer styles slowly weaving back into the mix, as well as low-heeled pumps. Trotters takes some of their most classic pumps this season and brings them back better than ever. Here are three of our favorites this season:
- Lola is a brand new style for our store, and it’s a sophisticated pump that’s a far cry from low heels of the past. With a bold heel and even bolder pattern, Lola elegantly stands out from a sea of plain black pumps. Cushioned footbed ensures Lola feels as gorgeous as it looks. Available in three colors, this pump is an all-around winner.
- Candela is an elegant, classic heel Trotters kicked up 10 notches this season. Flawless design is made fun and even a little funky with the addition of new materials. Black lizard patterned leather shines and contrasts beautifully against the glossy black heel. It’s like the extroverted, fraternal twin of plain, black leather Candela.
- Mary Janes are made new again in the Candice. With a 2 ¼” heel, Candice is the sexier version of a typical mary jane. Black leather creates a smooth, polished look. Candice is also available in suede, offering a fun, unconventional take on this classic silhouette. Glove soft lining and cushioned footbed make this mary jane a no brainer.
Platform shoes have seen countless innovations and design adaptations throughout the years. The trend began in ancient Greece to make the most important actors in a show stand tallest, and therefore easiest to see. Fast forward to the middle ages, and you would see EVERYONE wearing wooden “pattens” to elevate them above the waste in the streets. (See, platform shoes can be made fashionable AND functional!) The platform continued to evolve throughout the Medici era of Italian history. Italian nobility wore platforms to give short statures an extra boost! Salvatore Ferragamo made the platform shoe current when he created the rainbow platform made of colorful cork in the late 1930s. It’s true that fashion trends are recycled with each new generation – that which was once old becomes new again!
