Musketeer Boot by C-Doux

Spanish shoe brands that I follow make the musketeer boot often enough, just like their competitors elsewhere. Every year, as I browse through their winter collections, I single out the models that I like best. This year it's an over-the-knee or "musketeer" boot by C-Doux, a Menorcan label that I really like for its refined and seductive design style. Great quality goes without saying when we are talking about shoes or boots made on the island of Menorca or in mainland Spain.

The Spanishoegallery Blog is three years old! Anniversaries (and this one is a milestone of sorts) make you think. This blog was started as a gut reaction to discovering that most shoes I liked in stores and online were Spanish. Not just "Made in Spain", but of actual Spanish conception and design. Back then I did not much wonder why, but simply dove into the project, trusting that the answer will come later. So, what is my take away from three years of blogging? Why Spanish shoes?

Lace Up Sandals

Lace up sandals are making a very strong appearance this season and I'm loving it! Lace-ups look great on the feet and on the legs. Here is fashion icon Kendall Jenner wearing a striking "gladiator" version of the lace-up sandal, also called the "cage" sandal.

Shoe of the Week: Virreina

This Shoe of the Week is by the Virreina brand from Menorca. Virreina is a bit of a rare treat on the net. I literally cried my eyes out once when I missed the chance of buying a Virreina bag on YOOX. Virreina designers strive for absolute simplicity and functionality. The sandal below is designed in a pure and timeless style of Mediterranean comfort. The leather used is of high quality, as it is the case with all shoe manufacturers in Menorca.

Salamanca: Claudio Coello

At the Spanishoegallery Blog we have long been planning to offer our readers shoe shopping itineraries for the major and not so major cities of Spain. Finally this moment has arrived, thanks to a girl called Callie Wallace, who sent me a lovely message saying that she enjoyed browsing our website and now wants to know where some of the stuff we feature can be got in Madrid. Thank you, Callie, for giving us the push to finally launch our "Shoe Shopping Itineraries" series!

Menorcan Shoe Brand Homers (and Argila)

Recently I made another shoelicious discovery: a Menorcan company named Homers. Like the fellow Menorcan Pons Quintana and Mascaró brands, Homers is also a family-owned company, in business for over forty years. It also started out making slippers, graduating to making stylish urban footwear with an unmistakable flair for natural beauty so characteristic for the Balearic islands.
