October Eve With Audley Shoes

This October eve marks the end of the Spanishoegallery Blog’s third anniversary celebration month. It makes for a good occasion to show you my current picks from the Fall-Winter 2016-17 collection of yet another favorite Spanish shoe brand: Audley.

Oria” suede ankle boot with side button panel detailing by Audley FW1617. $302 on the Audley Shoes website.

In Audley Shoes every stitch, every little piece of hardware bears testimony to high-level Spanish craftsmanship. Whether it’s a boot, a loafer, or a pump, the shoes are both ladylike and practical. Their generous shape makes them very inviting, but fear not, no sacrifice of style is involved.  In “Oria” (the ankle boot above), the wide heel is softly tapered at the top, harmoniously joining with the natural curve of the back.  The three silver buttons on the side are a perfect contrasting detail to the deep black of the velvety suede. The top line of the boot slopes down to the comfy rounded toe at just the right angle. In short, this English-Spanish hybrid brand happily solves the dilemma that most modern women face on a daily basis: how to appear businesslike and feminine at the same time.

Audley has definitely transformed my approach to femininity and fashion. I feel like I trust myself more now fashion-wise.
