Part 2

NINA, NINA ORIGINALS, FRENCH SOLE FS/NY, LATIGO, SUPERFEET

Suede's texture, patent's shine, ornate embellishments, and warm rich tones-of F/W shoes transition well-when worn with heavier fabrics of colder climes- as well as lighter attire for  summery days.


NINA-LOVE dapper menswear inspired lace-ups for the ladies-pointy toe silhouettes and solid block heel-make these sexy and comfy choice for office dresses/suits-to night's out frocks/denim. Probably the most versatile shoe to add to one's footwear arsenal. 

our fav-a 60's staple- the sling back in suede with pretty patent bows. are chic modern musts..NINA Originals makes this summer style for the other months of the year in easy to wear neutral tones.

Embellished color blocked- block heels-eye catching-AND easier to walk on vs a stiletto. These feminine suede pumps ref the 70's serve up serious retro glam!  NINA Originals ...show them off with above the knee dress/skirt.
