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.

Shoe of the Week: Ángel Alarcón

Today's Shoe of the Week comes from Ángel Alarcón. The brand makes embellished pumps and sandals with high heels designed for formal occasions, like weddings, but also for any party or evening out. Ángel Alarcón shares the same foot-friendly philosophy and shapely silhouette with its sister brand, Mikaela.

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.

Shoe of the Week: LODI (again)

This week I chose this pink sandal by LODI, because it is the first studded high-heel sandal that really did it for me. Many a studded sandal made their appearance over the last couple of years, most notably ones by Valentino, and other good brands, Spanish included (Lola Cruz had a number of models in the style), but to my eyes, none achieved the harmony of this version by LODI.
