Kick Back in The Slingback2017-07-27
With the dog days of summer drawing near, we began dreaming up a warm-weather complement to our favorite classic silhouettes. Inspired by classic American summer style (think button-downs and vintage denim), we dove headfirst into our swatch books and design archives. Several days and a newly-assembled mood board later, we realized the answer was right in front of us: a denim flat.
The new slingback style was a natural extension of our beloved pointed-toe silhouette. Think of it as a riff on The Pointe - its breezy, summer sister.
In an ode to summer, we added a hint of retro-chic flair with a slingback construction and removable denim bow. The result? A shoe that's both playful and classic, and goes with everything - Just like your favorite pair of jeans. You can also throw them on with a white summer dress or a pair of denim shorts (Canadian tux, anyone?) for relaxed, ready-to-go summer style.
This shoe is undoubtedly a statement-maker - and an outfit-maker - so we'll be letting this one shine all through August, and beyond.
