Viva España

What can I say about the Spanish Marila brand! I just love it! From the colours to the patterns, the wedges to the flats to the heels, the patterns and designs! I could go on forever.

But the best thing about them you ask- the leather! Picked for its softness, breathability and flexibility, the leather used in the Marila sandals is of the best quality, and your feet will certainly agree. Marila, alongside Elche, their manufacturers, design shoes that respect the anatomy of the foot, whilst not losing sight of the international fashion trends. And O MY, do they do it well!
Here at McConnell Shoes we have a great selection of Marila sandals for this S/S 16 season. The colourways are amazing and perfect for these wonderful sunny days we are having (long may they last)!!


If you love your wedges and love a pop of colour then you have to check out Flower Power. This high wedged sandal with front platform is super comfy, whilst the elasticated heel strap holds your foot in place. The flower detailed upper and wedge sole keep it bright and summery, and the soft leather moulds around your foot. Available in blue and white, this sandal will take you from lunch by the beach to cocktails along the marina on your holidays!


A new style addition to the Marila collection this season is Lucinda. I love the freshness of this one! From the T-bar front which holds the foot securely in place, to the wooden effect wedge sole unit! My favourite part is the bang on trend white razor cut sole! It has the most comfortable cushioned leather footbed and soft leather upper. Coming in three colourways, navy, silver and multi, the hardest part is choosing the colour you want!


For those ladies who prefer a heel to a wedge, there are some beautiful choices for you too. My personal favourite from the collection is Chloe, as it is super wearable and perfect with any outfit. I love the rich tan of the strapping detail of the upper, while the front platform allows me to wear a heel (which I normally don’t) without compromising on the comfort. The back buckle keeps the sandal firmly on the foot and a flexible sole unit allows great movement when walking (or dancing!) I team mine with patterned skinnies or shirt dresses, but this really is a style you can wear with anything and everything!


Marila Sarah is a new style to us this season and WOW is it comfy. The footbed just hugs your foot! It has a wooden platform front and high stacked heel. The laser cut detailed upper is gorgeous as it still keeps the foot slightly covered (if you don’t want to show off too many toes!) Again, made from premium quality leather, this really is a great addition to their collection and a very welcome addition to our stores!


Going in a complete tangent here (this is me down to a tee!), meet Olga! As I am normally a flats kind of girl, this is totally right up my street! The easy espadrille styling of this pump style shoe is just perfect. From the open sides to the slightly open heel cup, it is just fab! The platinum leather upper makes it so versatile while still keeping it in trend. If you struggle to keep pumps on your foot, then fear not as this ankle strap holds you right in place. This would be perfect with your turned up skinnies or shorts (if you are brave enough to get the legs out!)


Sticking with the flats, a popular choice is Kia. This flat open toed sandal is so soft and comfortable on the foot that you will forget you are even wearing it! The leather strapping and elasticated heel strap hold the foot securely whilst the small rubber heel unit give your legs and back a boost in the right direction, perfect for you ladies who can’t do flat flats. This is available in navy and white and to be honest, both colourways would be a welcome addition to your summer wardrobe. There is nothing fussy about these so if you are holidaying in the sun this year, pick up a pair of Kia and they will take you from day to night easily.

You cannot miss this range instore as the colours simply pop off the shelves. You really won’t regret picking up a pair as the quality leather speaks for itself! Your feet can thank me later!
