Spanish shoe maker Sendra really boots it out of the park for this pre-Fall season...with flawless workmanship of kickers...that are international in flavor.
We had a great chat at the recent FFANY trade show with members of the sales team...who concurred:
"We took a different turn..," but still with that special style of this label...
With edgy--- handsome formulations of the Engineer, Modern Biker/Motorcycle Boot.
Urban Cowboy---with a round toe that looks cool.
What jumped out first---the inventive use of textiles mix with leather---in short boots. Canvas and tweed...in particular. We even thought the patchwork style easy to wear,
|wear up or down|
|Woven in Europe...|
This mule was one of our top picks---a basket woven leather.
Hand finished finishes---vintage and buffed.
|Leather linings---luxe extras|
|These shoes outoles are something to look at...handsome---customers should pay more attention|
|Narrow specific patterns outsoles. Amazing.|
|Good Year Welt Construction|
High end, sensuous shoes and pushy stachels from Spain...in a pre-Fall collection.
|The color of the season---this beautiful, rich gray.|
|Tiered, gray suede...this is our new everyday bag WANT|
|Stacked platform, texture...perforated holes.|
|Folded leather round toe---perforated leather in a sling back. Elegant and sassy.|
|Mulit-strap, stacked platform, metallic sheen, leather in a gun metal gray|
|Kitten heels with attitude---we liked the S shapes of how the heel curves.|
|Our fav heels----spiked heels...|
|Roll up or down.|
|Buttery soft leather tie envelope|
|Spectators---a nod to mens shoes that seem to never go out of style. Pointy toes make this one for the girls.|
|Wedge boots are not our fav profile but these are something else....a booty that manages to entice without being clunky|
