Driving Shoes

What does driving and walking have in common?  Obviously they both help you get around.  Take that a "step" further and they also have footwear in common.  Introducing the Car Shoe.  No, it is not new, but maybe it is new to you.

Car Shoe was founded in 1963 by Gianni Mostile, whose passion for racing cars led him to design handmade moccasins made from very soft leather and soles set on tiny rubber studs to enhance adherence to car pedals and were particularly suitable for driving sports cars. The Car Shoe driving shoe design was awarded a registered patent from the Italian Ministry of Trade and Industry in 1964 which has since expired. The brand has since become an Italian classic for driving shoes, known for its technical-design originality with high-quality leather and handmade craftsmanship.
The Original Car Shoe
Car Shoe is a division of Prada Group.

If this show was new in 2017, we would have considered it as one of the best shoes of 2017.  It wasn't designed this year, but the good news is you can still buy them this year.

Think Goldie When Hitting The Road

Are you hitting the road and heading off to the next music festival?  Some people call them music festivals, but we prefer to call them the "fashion festivals".  Although music is a huge part, the way people dress really kicks off the vibe.  Coachella and other events are a trendy display for sure.
Goldie Fashion for Festivals
Clothing for festivals is a category of interest this summer.  Where do you shop for your trendy and comfortable clothing?  If you haven't already done so, we suggest you visit the Goldie site to browse for festival fashion.

Goldie embodies true London style.  A combination of flirty vintage inspired dresses, sheer tops, and chunky knitwear are teamed effortlessly with timeless silhouettes, which keeps each collection fresh, unique and super-wearable.  That makes it perfect for the various international festivals taking place this summer.
