Mermaid heels – that’s what I call shoes that have a distinctly scaly leather texture. They happen to be signature Paco Herrero, a classic Spanish dressy women’s shoe brand from Elda. Not too long ago I featured a “mermaid” ankle boot by them. As I often say on this blog, I’m a huge admirer of textured leather shoes.
Textured leather is very eye-catching. If done well, it adds flair to any outfit, transforming it from mundane to fashionable. Spanish shoe makers, with their amazing leather making tradition, excel at leather effects, textured leather included. Given the season, ankle boots are on everyone's mind. They are a very versatile urban style, good for the cool fall weather. Ankle boots come in a variety of colors, but black boots are a staple in any woman's wardrobe.
An "Ultimate Shoedown" is every girl's fantasy. Imagine being surrounded by a group of luxury shoe designers each clutching a pair of their prettiest heels, eager for you to accept them. The stuff of dreams, right? Well, just such a party is a yearly occurrence in the Spanish shoemaking center of Elda. Every year since 1999 the Elda Shoe Museum (and store) convenes a panel of shoe industry, media and arts personalities. Their task - to choose "The Woman with the Best Shoes".
