Going back to Uni is always one of the best times of the year. But let’s be serious – you’ve probably racked up more hours trying to catch Charizard on Pokemon Go, binging Stranger Things on Netflix and trying to work out why #Hiddleswift was EVER a thing instead of working towards the next instalment of education. Oh well, summer is for having lazy-induced fun, right? Now where the style stakes are concerned, this is the time to get the Autumn ball rolling and invest in some footwear to get you through first term. As always, we’re on hand to point you in the right direction.
All Black Everything
All black trainers – a fail safe method for creating a smarter and more sleek look. Sneaker kings New Balance include this 530 old-skool runner in their latest drop. If you’re in need of a simple yet stylish shoedrobe overhaul then these kicks could be the answer. The black suede and bold detailing provides a sophisticated finish for the perfect smart casual look this season.
If smart black tickles your fancy then a beautifully simple penny loafer from the ladies SOLE range, our exclusive in-house collection, might be the perfect pair of shoes. The androgynous Alexa style is both striking and practical in a bold black with a patent python print. Paired with a roll neck, pinafore and tights you’ll have Autumn style sorted.
Loan Drop Splurge
It’s a universally known fact that loan day is one of the best days in the student calendar, so why not indulge in a guilt-free splurge? Y-3 has delivered another masterless in design update, and the Future Low trainers exude class and premium luxury details. The slip-on, no lace design concept is part of the Yohji collaboration which is at the centre of cool kicks.
Michael Kors is the master of sports luxe footwear – period. The epitome of class, this bandaged wrapped women’s slip-on sneaker is one of this season’s fastest selling styles. The classic metallic colour palette combined with an array of different textures creates a unique and striking silhouette, beautifully accentuated with prominent yet understated metal branding.
Chelsea boots are quite simply an Autumn staple and these Wynter boots from our exclusive in-house men’s SOLE collection are the perfect addition to this season’s shoe collection. In a traditional black suede with wooden sole and heel detailing, these boots are both practical and comfortable. The 72 emboss branding creates the perfect finish for a suave and sophisticated shoe.
Every girl probably has more boots than textbooks but that’s certainly nothing to be ashamed of. Exclusive to SOLE, these May boots ooze casual class and premium comfort. The suede finish and mid-heel create the perfect style comfort balance, topped off with a subtle almond toe for an added unique dimension to the classic silhouette.
