The Spanishoegallery Blog is TWO YEARS OLD!
This has been a great year – here are some highlights.
We’ve introduced a great Barcelona-based brand Deux Souliers, time-tested Mallorca-based Lottusse and Barrats 1890, Elda-based Paco Herrero and Paco Gil, Homers (and Argila), the perfect blend of luxury and comfort from Menorca, AGARE, a quality casual footwear maker from the Zaragoza area, and Wappi, a brand that wants to shake up the ballerina flat market by allowing you to create your own while attracting attention to women-friendly causes.
The Shoe of the Week series is a fun way to bring into focus a particularly great shoe. The series was put on hold during the summer, but we are going to resume it again soon.
The Made In Spain Shoe Shopping Itineraries series is brand new and it was started because of a request made by Callie, one of our Facebook followers, an American girl living in Madrid who really liked the Spanishoegallery Blog and wanted to know where to shop for the Spanish shoes we feature. So far we’ve only covered one area of Madrid – the luxury goods laden Salamanca district where you can buy shoes and accessories by many of Spain’s best fashion and footwear designers.
The Spanishoegallery‘s Facebook page following is growing at a steady pace. Since September 2014 our Twitter numbers have more than doubled, as did our Instagram numbers. Our Google+ following increased by 80% and Pinterest by 70%.
We’ve featured new collections of Spanish designers and have monitored new trends as they migrated from runways to the retail market and back to the runways. Ethnic-print textiles, flower patterns, denim, fringed accessories, thick platforms and mirror-effect leather are bringing back the 70s and 80s fashion.

What’s To Come
Very soon we will introduce the brands Audley and Farrutx, Petusco handbags, Neon Boots, and many others, as well as tell human stories that will make you fall in love with Spanish shoes even more.
Welcome to year three!!!
