The 4×4 flipflop!! Fresh Cargo

 

The ‘Fresh Cargo’ flip flops are made in Kenya, crafted by six Maasai tribesmen. Designed in the UK, these recycled sandals are fair trade and are made using local components. The ‘wow’ factor to these flip flops are they’re tread, they’re made from disused tyres…. yes you read correctly TYRES. This means that every shoe is individual as the tread on the tyres change.

If you were looking for wearable sandals that are substantial enough to actually last a British summer, (as we all insist on wearing flip flops in the rain just because it is the summer months) then these are the shoes for you! An average tyre is supposed to last for 35,000 miles so you have a lot of walking to do…. and with the upper made from hemp, a softer, warmer, more resistant fabric, Fresh Cargo have provided the British public with a fashion forward, fair trade shoe for men and women. The men’s design is a more masculine shape in navy, red, black and brown.

It is a truly inspirational product, that aims to avoid compromising the well being of people’s lives. We all have a pair….. and are wearing them in the British summer rain!

Love SS <3

 

 

 

Lots of NEWs in !! Wonderweave & Mischa Barton!

We’re very excited to announce that Stuart’s Shoes has seen the start of the arrival of our new autumn winter stock. Stock from Wonderweave, Mischa Barton and Josef Seibel have started arriving, with Ravel due soon!

Wonderweave are a brand catering the most beautiful scarves, wraps and capes in numerous colours, most of which are highly versatile and can be worn a number of ways!

This week, Stuarts Shoes took a delivery of stock in Wonderweaves Autumn/Winter colour range, including charcoal, aubergine, and mulled wine. We particularly love the ‘Wonderboa’… a very stretchy, very soft scarf which can be worn in at least 6 different ways… its versatility is incredible and there’s a way to wear it to compliment any body shape! The brilliance of the Wonderweave products are that they can translate from daywear to evening wear so simply, and at a competitive price point, we guarantee they will become a staple item in your wardrobe this winter. Jane has already ‘stolen’ a black wrap!

As someone who is addicted to handbags….I had forgotten how lovely the Mischa Barton handbags are. The new range features a mix of clutches, totes and shoulder bags in tan, midnight and black. The quality of every design is impeccable, and the price points are extremely reasonable… we expect these bags to fly out!

The Josef Seibel military boots featured in last month’s Image magazine are also now in store. We cannot get over how comfy they are, we have all been trying them on. That’s the best part, getting the delivery of stock you have ordered months in advance! It sometimes feels like Christmas day!
