Red and Black Ankle Boots

Red and black is a powerful combination much loved by artists and fashion designers. The clash between the hot red energy and cool black energy is provocative and exciting. This is also true for shoes, of course. The red and black combo is timeless, but it seems to be a particularly hot trend this fall. The Art Company, a Spanish brand known for its metropolitan style footwear that comes in a dazzling array of colors, has a particularly attractive line up of red and black ankle boots to offer this season.

Six Cold Season Power Boots

To successfully combat winter's wet and chilly weather, you really need power boots. By power boots I mean boots that can do at least two jobs at the same time: be rugged enough for walking (as opposed to hopping in and out of the car) and nice enough to look at. Boots that I'm about to show you are made of quality materials that will not fall apart from contact with water, snow, salt or ice-clearing agents and are also stylish enough to wear in the city.

Shoes and chocolate are the best treats a woman can get on Valentine’s Day. I used to underestimate chocolate, but I never underestimated the power of shoes. Lately, I’ve been scouring YOOX, my affiliate partner and THE greatest online destination for Spanish shoes outside Spain, for good deals on yummy Spanish shoes.

Ankle Boots – Embellished or Plain?

Ankle boots are the city dweller's best friend in the colder months, easily switching from outside to inside, from sporty wear to fancy wear. Whether the ankle boot is embellished or plain does make a difference - the embellished ones are obviously more visually exciting, but the plain ones are easier to combine with different outfits. I picked out two sets of ankle boots, designed and made in Spain: one embellished, one plain, by four great, reputable Spanish brands. Let's take a closer look!

Textured Leather Ankle Boots

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.

Versatile Farrutx

Farrutx is a brand that has retained its Mallorcan roots. Farrutx has a distinctly unique voice in Spanish shoe design but at the same time it also shares in the legacy of the island's traditional high-quality craftsmanship and leather know-how with other well-known high-end brands like Camper, Lottusse and Barrats 1890.

Élysèss

Élysèss, an exclusively women's Spanish shoe brand based in Elche, stood out to me because of its deft mix of retro, classic, and bohemian styles. Flowing, feminine lines, smooth edge finish, soft textures, sparse, but effective embellishments, and moderately high heels present a unified design vision.

Shoes Extraordinaire

One of the main reasons I love Spanish shoes is the unbridled fantasy of the designers and their ability to channel their love of life into shoes. Their flight of fancy is wholeheartedly supported by the Spanish public, which loves to be original, extravagant, and daring. A "shoe extraordinaire" can mean a unique color combination, unusual texture, a special embellishment effect, or a "fashion quote" from a time long past.
