Covid19 Update

It’s a Kate Frenzy!

Wedding /occasion season is well and truly underway so I have decided to visit our dressy shoe section!

The variety is unbelievable, from sandals to courts, platforms to sling backs, the choice is endless! The great thing about the range at McConnells is that there is something to suit everyone’s budget, without compromising on the style. Here, you can pick up bang on trend styles starting at £39.99 (and online you can even pick up previous season sale shoes from as little as £7!) This week we are focusing on one of our fav designers, Kate Appleby, who most of you shoe fanatics will know, has the trademark red sole.

Big hitters this season are from Kate’s range and you only have to look at them to understand why! Her collections are always something to “ooohh” and “aaahh” over as they feature classic styling ideas, but sometimes with a twist or a pop of colour. Oh, and we can’t forget her take on the red sole. My personal favourite of hers this season is Royal Lady. This beauty is available in coral, blue and white and comes with a high stiletto heel. It has a closed in heel and peep toe front, featuring a back zip for easy foot entry. Cut away at the sides but closed in over the top of the foot, keep it secure yet summery at the same time. We just love it here at McConnells HQ. But which colour do we choose?!

If you prefer something more open throughout the foot, and then check out Royal Park! This T-bar sandal with a closed in heel features a platform front which helps with the comfort of the heel height. Coming in navy and nude, it features a patent/metallic/leather look upper, keeping it dressy and classic. If you are a fan of Dirty Dancing (and what girl aren’t these days) then these are a slightly higher modern version of Baby’s shoes!

Fancy something with the heel out? Then Trend Forever is for you. This stunning T-bar peep toe with strap detailing is perfect for your full skirted dresses for that big occasion you have coming up and then afterwards team it with dark skinnies for that dinner night out! This style is perfect for those ladies out there who have a slim heel and ankle and can’t wear court shoes.

Royal Village is the perfect peep toed court shoe. It has a great mix of patent and shimmer affected upper detailing, which keeps it dressy, whilst the high stiletto heel gives you a welcome posture boost. Pick it up in navy or gold nude depending on your S/S wardrobe. If you still want to keep the Spring Summer look but like your heel and toe in, Kate has you covered. Royal Avenue is a simple platform court shoe featuring cut away sides. The strapping detail across the foot finishes with a small buckle to keep the foot secure. The straps have a croc effect finish which is carried on through the front platform and heel. These are super comfy on!

Lady Florence is something completely different from Kate Appleby and we just love them! This beautiful high stiletto sandal features a snake effect bright lemon front and denim covered ankle strap and heel. The thick straps are not only bang on trend, but will also allow for added support and are perfect if you don’t like showing off too much foot!

Still need convincing? Pop instore or online and take a nosey at the McConnell’s collection of Kate Appleby’s S/S16 collection. You will be amazed at how many you want!
