Hispanitas AW12 has arrived!

It’s only July and already the AW 2012 stock has started arriving.

Hispanitas has arrived especially early and we were all very excited to see the brand’s winter offerings.

Hispanitas 26894 Amy is definitely an early favourite. The Knee high boot comes in classic black or a rich blue suede with patent detailing at the toe. The elegant lace design with brass effect eyelets looks fantastic on and the zip fastening at the side makes it easy to slide on and off. The brogue detailing is on trend for AW2012 and gives a Victoriana feel to the lace boot.

A matching bowling bag is avaliable to compliment the boots, again the design takes traditional brogue detailing and gives it a stylish and contemporary twist.

 The ankle boot design Hispanitas 26777 Amy comes in green and black.

I love the olive green version, it’s a great colour for autumn and will compliment all the  khaki shades set to be big this season. The oversized Brogue detail highlights the contrast of suede and patent. The dainty waxed laces, feminine heel and almond toe shape tick all the key trend for aw 12.

A matching green bag is avaliable, it’s a good size for everyday use and is beautifully finished with patent edging.

School Shoes- Tested to the Max!!

For Back to School 2012 we are so confident in the quality of the footwear that we sell that we have decided to test our bestsellers to their absolute limits.

Firstly we wanted to see how they performed in the normal school environment and so with the help of 5 children we put them to the test. The shoes were worn to school and on some weekends for 4 whole months to see how they stood up to normal tear and wear.

Gabor AW12 Court Shoe Preview

Gabor Soria has been a bestseller for us for the past year and it continues into Autumn Winter with some lovely new colours to add to our collection.

Bordeaux features heavily in the Gabor Winter collection and Soria comes in both suede and patent. The wine colour will look great with black and grey and would be an easy way to add a bit of colour to your winter wardrobe. Gabor Soria would be a great work shoe, we have had only positive feedback about the court shoe from previous seasons, it has proved to be comfortable and look great.

New to The Golden Boot Geox Atlante

Just in time for back to school 2012 we have introduced Atlante to our Geox school shoe range.

The school shoe is a great alternative to Geox Crush or Savage as it is a little smarter but still has all the benefits of Geox patented technology.
