  • Christmas presents!

    Christmas presents

    The elves are toiling away in Santa's workshop, ensuring all our presents are ready for the big man on Christmas eve. However, we can't leave it up to Santa to give all the presents! So it's time to hit the shops, in search of presents for your nearest & dearest. But what to buy? It can be hard trying to figure out what everyone would like to find under the Christmas tree. Don't fret, I've got a few gift ideas to suit everyone. Here at McConnells we stock a wide range of footwear to suit the whole family.

    For those who like nothing more than sitting by a warm fire, why not treat them to a cosy pair of slippers. Our Padders range, coming in men's & ladies styles, have comfort & cosiness sewn in to every one. With their soft uppers & memory foam insoles, it's like walking on a cloud. If you want a premium leather slipper our men's range of Nordikas will have one to suit even the most discerning gentleman in your life.

    Converse are still a must have present for many this year. Thankfully, we stock a wide variety of colours & styles to suit just about everybody! The children's & adult ranges come in leather & canvas styles. The kids converse are particularly cute. For the little men in your life check out the cool "Side Zip Hi". This black high top has funky red laces & a zip on the side to make it easy to get on. If you don't want laces my current favourite is " All Star Velcro". This little leather Converse has an easy Velcro fastening making it great for little ones. For the girls we have loads to choose from too. My top picks are "Double Tongue Ox 1" & "All Star Special Hi". "Double Tongue" comes in purple canvas, with pink laces & two tongues showing a flash oh bright pink & yellow to perk up any outfit. The "All Star Special" is ideal for the little princess in your life! This high top comes in vibrant pink with a sprinkling of glitter to glam up an outfit.

    The ever popular "Hunter" wellingtons are a great pick. Coming in a variety of colours & matt or gloss finish, these are the most stylish wellies a girl could have! Don't forget the fleece welly socks! They come in marl grey or classic cream & feature the distinctive Hunter logo, making them a great stocking filler.

    For the fashionista in the family check out our range of ladies boots. I love "Paris" from Tamaris. This ankle boot is fresh & funky, with its two tone finish. This little black boot comes in a choice of either black patent or leopard print detail at the back to give your look that little extra edge. For an extra bit of height check out the gorgeous "Kelso" from Tamaris. This high heel Chelsea boot is made of a rich chocolate brown leather & features a subtle gold buckle. Wear them with a skirt or skinnies, this boot will be a wardrobe staple for any stylish lady.

    I hope I've given you a few ideas to help you in your search for that perfect present. Happy shopping!

  • It's party time!

    It's party time!

    Ah my favourite time of year is here! Tis the season to party ladies.

    Yes Christmas is coming & that means it's PARTY TIME!

    If you're like me you will have a few social occasions around

    Christmas. So along with all the present shopping & food shopping

    it can be hard to find time to shop for yourself!

    Whether you start with a dress & try to find the shoes to match. Or,

    like me, find shoes you love & then the dress, it's a bit of a pain

    trying to find what you want. So I've put together a few of my

    favourite party heels here at McConnells to make it just a little bit

    easier for you.

    If you're looking for party heels there's plenty to choose from. So

    here are just a few of my favourites.

    If you want an on trend high heel that is actually comfortable, (who

    doesn't want that?) then look no further than our Clarks collection.

    A key trend this season is the classic pointed court. It will make

    even the shortest of legs look long and sexy. We all want sexy pins

    ladies! Our Clarks Narrative range give you the comfort you want,

    without having to sacrifice the style.

    "Azizi Isobel" is a stunning little number, with premium black kid

    suede upper. It's sexy stiletto heel is wrapped in Italian metallic

    heavy grain leather to add an extra touch of glamour. While it's

    softwear cushioning means you can party in comfort all night!

    Another high heeled beauty is "Deeta Bombay". With A 3.5 inch

    stacked stiletto heel and high shine patent leather upper, this shoe

    screams class and style. Featuring leather lining and excellent

    cushioning, this shoe is a dream to wear.

    For an on trend look without a skyscraper heel, why not try

    "Armstrong" from our Tamaris range. This pointed court comes in

    black or bordeaux high shine patent. It's mid height stiletto heel

    gives you a sleek silhouette and comfort in all in one!

    Now if you're not a fan of the pointed shoe, don't worry it's not the

    only style out there! You can never go wrong with a classic high

    heel pump with a platform sole. "Crisp Kendra" and "Anika Kendra"

    from our Clarks range have a colour and finish to suit you. They

    come in a range of colours, black, navy, wine, and nude. You can

    choose from suede, leather, or patent to suit your style. They have

    great stack heel, platform sole, and extra soft cushioning under

    foot, to leave you feeling like your walking, or dancing, on air!

    Now if you're like me, and you buy your shoe before you buy your

    dress, then my pick is the gorgeous "Balti". From our premium

    range of Cristofoli footwear, this one is funky and classy. This high

    fashion court has a mid leather heel for style and comfort. It stands

    out from the crowd with its spotted pony hair upper and cute little

    bow detail. I love these shoes! While they may be a little different,

    they are so versatile. They go with everything! Dresses, skirts,

    trousers, and skinnies. So buy a pair for the party season and you'll

    find you wear them season after season.

    So ladies, enjoy shoe shopping for the party season, I hope I've
