French Sole invited me to their Fall 2015 shoe preview. The boutique is located on the Upper East Side in NY. They have a fabulous collection of ballet flats ranging from animal print to their own exclusive, exquisite materials. Leather, suede, calfskin, haircalf, snake print, you name it they have it. If you like a print in a round toe it can be transferred to a pointy toe shoe. Sizes range from 4-12 but can go up to some 13’s as well.
I immediately was drawn to the PEPPY-LEOPARD HAIRCALF shoe. Love the flat pointy toe. The PYRO in NAVY SUEDE was gorgeous. I also loved the burgundy too which is also a flat. There was a Broze Lace/Black Satin wedge shoe called OCEAN. And even though it’s a wedge it’s still looks and feel like a flat. This is a great dressy shoe but your feet will thank you and you can go from office to a girls night out or date night with this. The OUTLAW in Velvet comes in black or wine and has chains that would look great with a military jacket or peacoat.
More favorites were the leopard print suede slip-on sneaker called OUTDOORS. Also available in zebra print suede. These are a must have. I could walk around in these all day. Also, the OASIS slip on sneaker in blk/white snake. These prints are amazing!! As a New Yorker who is on her feet all day, everyday I could appreciate these comfortable, trendy sneakers.
The pair that were given to those who attended were called ZEPPA. There were 3 colors to choose from. Coral, Navy and Turquoise. I chose Coral because I loved the color and it looks great with my skin tone and reminded me how fast I want the summer to get here. I couldn’t wait to wear them that I actually did and they were great! Comfortable all day and has a small wedge. I received lots of compliments and didn’t want to take them off. They suggested we get a size bigger than what we normally wear but depending on the shoe I went with a 10 which fit perfect. I tried them on before I left. These are Italian shoes so if you already own the brand or Italian shoes than you should know your size. If not and you are in NY stop in and try a pair on.
