In the name of shopping smarter, consuming more sustainably and opting for quality over quantity, it is time to start investing in timeless styles which are built to last. Shopping with this mentality means appreciating the longevity of an item - being considered in the styles you select is imperative in creating a wardrobe which works long term.
Shoes are often the starting point of an outfit and getting this important part right is the key to being well styled. Look no further than EOS Footwear - the European handcrafted footwear label I cannot recommend more highly. As a stylist, I often get to road test different labels and discover the difference in fit, quality and style between various brands. EOS is one at the top of my list and has been for years.
Why am I such a big fan?
Comfort - the soft leather and natural fibers used by EOS Footwear are next level. I've never put a pair of their shoes on my feet without thinking to myself "how can these be so comfortable?!" and this applies to the heels, the boots and the sandals, everything.
Style - this speaks for itself, the design team consistently deliver stylish options in a timeless colour palette which remains relevant season after season.
Quality - this is undeniable in every single pair from EOS. Handcrafted in Europe, the feel and attention to detail is incredible, from buttery soft leather to invisible stitching and ruched textures, there is a sculptural element to the way these are made, nothing is spared when it comes to delivering on quality.
The Stopper Sandal
These are my idea of the perfect shoe - simple, practical and just enough height to work for any occasion. The ultra soft leather is divine to wear and the flat black colour means they go with everything. These would be just as at home on a night out as they would heading to the office.
The Staple Mule
Silver shoes are fun, fun, fun and inject personality to any outfit. These are perfect for evening with a short dress or jumpsuit or can be styled down with denim for daytime. The easy, slip on nature of a mule says effortlessly stylish like no other.
The Hat Slingback
A slingback is comfortable, chic and timeless. Opting for a pointed toe elongates the legs and works just as well with a skirt as it does with pants. This is the perfect office go-to because it is subtle and classic but can also be styled up for the weekend with fun separates and a little bit of quirk to steer the look away from serious or corporate.
