We’ve talked about Devotte shoes round these parts before.
But they make such gorgeous sandals that are fun and playful (and not insanely high-heeled, either) and stylish that they’re worth a post all their own, if you ask me.
Nancy Kim is the design force behind Devotte, and she knows what she’s doing after spending time at D&G and menswear’s Y-3. And she’s designing from the right point of view, in my opinion. We’re firm believers here at Shoeblog that there’s no need to compromise your style for some comfort, and Nancy agrees.
I understand the lifestyle of the cosmopolitan woman. There is never time to go home and change. I am born-and-bred NYC; I know the importance of stylish shoes that are still comfortable. These can be worn day to night, like your favorite jeans.
Sounds good, right? So let’s point out some of the beautiful spring/summer creations that could take you day to night. The Helena nods gracefully at the gladiator sandal without giving up any of its ladylike beauty. Perhaps its name is a nod to Helen of Troy, whose ladylike beauty was enough to cause all kinds of trouble.
The Leeloo has a whimsical name and a fittingly flitting butterfly-wing design.
And if you’re after a little height and disco diva color, you may want to opt for the Courtney, which distills the essence of Studio 54′s heyday into something just a little simpler and chicer so you won’t have people thinking you’re living a life of over-the-top excesses.
Now it’s true, these babies aren’t cheap, but if you peek around the internet, you can find some Devotte deals (usually in select sizes, as per usual) like the heart-embellished Adore ankle-straps for $138
or the cute Clara skimmers for only $71!
No matter what, you’re sure to end up with something feminine and classy that’ll prove your style chops to anyone who sees your adorably-clad feet.
