Queenstown boutique shoe store, Issimo, is turning up the heat this winter with its latest range of boots and shoes direct from the UK, Europe and the USA.
The Searle Lane store is renowned for quality and style and owner Kerrey Garvie says the new season is glamorous with touches of sparkle and glitz.
“We now stock the very cool Premio sneakers. They have a special hidden wedge heel that keeps the style relaxed but adds some height to the shoes without anyone knowing.”
Warm and earthy colours are trending including golden chestnut, deep red, beige and navy. “Navy has carried over from last year and is like the ‘new black’. All these gorgeous colours merge creating a medley of wintery tones to work with new season fashion,” says Kerrey.
“Heeled boots are making a return like the Donna Caroline Bianca boots in navy that have the wow factor. Dr Marten has boots in butterscotch and black featuring a chunky platform sole for a fun edge.”
Texture and warmth are important factors for winter boots and Issimo carries key brands Sorel, Emu and Timberland that combine street appeal with cosy functionality.
“The Emu Colebrook heeled boot comes in lovely shades of chestnut and black and their fur lined boots do not compromise style for comfort.
We have Timberlands in gorgeous colourways including the softest baby pink and our classic L.K. Bennett boots are always popular for their elegant edge.”
