Covid19 Update

What is that yellow thing in the sky??

So ladies, the sun is finally out! (For how long I hear you ask, but at McConnells HQ we don’t worry about that, we just make the most of it!)

Time to kick off the boots and get something a bit lighter on the feet. So let’s talk loafers and boat shoes. These styles are some of my fav as they are so wearable and are perfect for my jeans and dresses. They are a great wee in between season shoe as they are neither too open nor too closed and they work with everything! At McConnells we have loads of styles to choose from this season from a variety of our brands.

One of my top picks is from Earth Spirit. ‘Chicago’ is a typical boat shoe (or boater as I like to call them) with a moccasin style trim and a short lace up front. The mixture of leather and suede upper makes it super soft and comfy on the foot whilst the shapely foot bed provides arch support. It feels so secure on the foot for a slip on, without cramping the toes and the flexible sole gives you so much free movement. It comes in navy and red and is completely flying off the shelves. The hardest part is which colour to go for!

Ear Valdez

If you like this style but don’t fancy the lace then fear not as ‘Valdez’ is practically identical, only minus the lace! It features the same moccasin style trim as ‘Chicago’ and has the navy/tan leather and suede combination upper. Best part about these boaters is that they are available from a UK3-8 (EU 36-42) and they are only £45!

Hea Cherry

Another style that we are struggling to keep on the shelf is ‘Cherry’ by Heavenly Feet and heavenly is what it is! Available in blue and red, this leather boater is like wearing a slipper, they are just that comfy! Underfoot cushioning allows the foot to sink in, whilst the contrasting white sole unit is flexible and lightweight. You won’t regret your decision to try these on! A lady bought the red ones this morning, then came back for the blue after she went for coffee! Get them while you can! It I a great style to wear with your chinos, denims and shirt dresses!

Rie adriana

A nice surprise delivery this season was from Rieker. ‘Adriana’ was a very welcome addition to our shelves and I just love it! Keeping with the loafer/boater styling this shoe is simply class. From the bright floral pattern to the laser punched detailing, everything is perfect- especially as it is lined with a supersoft leather insole! Complete comfort for every step you take. This shoe would really work perfectly with your tapered chinos and a lovely spring shirt!

Mar Darcie

If you want something with a slightly simpler styling, then Marco Tozzi have you covered. ‘Darcie’ is a high shine patent loafer that could dress your boring jeans up! It is available in a dune or navy patent and features a ‘Feel Me’ footbed for added comfort. Cut slightly higher up the foot, a lot of ladies like this style for work as it is secure and has a great sole unit if you are on your feet all day as it isn’t too flat! The patent finish helps dress up your outfits too!

So what are you waiting for?! Come in and try on and pick your fav already!!
