We’re an equal opportunity on-line mag so we cater, from time to time, for the men in your lives; the men for whom you like to buy gifts and set on the right fashion track. Well here’s your chance to provide a gift or advice as we feature high heels, flats AND men’s shoes.
But first, some new season high heels from retailers we love – Mode Collective, Shouz.com.au and Wanted Shoes. The high heels for Spring are AWESOME and I’m pretty sure I need all of them. Sigh! So here’s a little video to put you in the love mood with high heels and wedges in exciting designs, stylish colours and relaxed embellishments.
Oh I love soaking up all those high heels. See what I mean? You could blow your annual clothes budget just on shoes, right?
So, to the interlude where we talk about men’s shoes for a sec. But these are men’s shoes with a difference. Mere is a progressive leather footwear & accessories label based in Sydney. Fuelled by a love for design, art, fashion & leather the label produces high quality lifestyle accessories, made by hand & with the individual in mind. (Did you see their wonderfully worn-look backpacks in Black and Mud featured on Makeup Files.com.au)
MERE – ‘FROM THE GROUND UP’
Raising awareness for those that call the streets their home comes Mere’s SS14 conscious collection, ‘From the ground up’. Designed as a strong and masculine range that is built to last the test of time, the range boasts classic styles as well as introducing woven features. Made with full grained buttery leathers in a variety of burnished finishes and textures, the collection is hand crafted with an artisanal touch to achieve the pre-loved look for which the label is known.
Being a conscious collection, Mere is donating $5.00 from every pair that is sold from the SS14 range to Youth Off The Streets. This is in conjunction with the release of a ‘From the Ground Up’, a photographic memoir and documentation of Sydney’s homeless situation by James Noakes.
Grab a pair (or two) for your man and he’ll not only look super stylish, in a street style kind of way, you’ll also be supporting a very worthy cause. Available now from Mere.
And for some women high heels are a worthy cause, and I can’t say I disagree. I am so taken with the latest high heels from Mode Collection it’s almost embarrassing. And he range features equally stylish flats. Whatever the occasion, you’ll find more than one or two pairs of shoes from Mode Collective that you MUST HAVE!
