Candies shoes are some of the most fabulous shoes in existence. They are a little-known footwear phenomenon, but word is spreading steadily and these shoes are fast becoming hot property.
It is easy to see why: a shelf full of Candies shoes is enough to send any shopaholic woman into a frenzy of purchasing excitement. The designs are essentially simple and stylish – but so very desirable at the same time. With the choice of many colours and a surprising range of styles to choose from, Candies' shoes are ideal for every occasion, at the same time as being ridiculously good value for money.
One of the most popular designs is the Maryleen open-toed mule, which has a wooden sole and three and a half inch tapered heel, with a strap in pink, purple, black or white leather. This is the sort of sandal that suits almost any summer clothing, and can even look great with certain evening wear or work outfits. Similar styles include the Sadey and Tortoise open-toed mules. The Tortoise shoe is a very minimalist design, with a thinner strap across the toes and available in more muted colors, such as purple, black and brown. The Sadey is very similar to the Maryleen, but the leather strap comes in many more pastels and bright colors, and has a pattern of small holes for aesthetic value and greater aeration.
If you are after something more colorful, check out the Batik range of sandals. These are wedge-heeled sandals that add another four inches to your height, with straps made of brightly colored fabric. The ankle straps can be tied around the ankle or wrapped up around the calf, depending on your outfit or mood. The Batik sandal comes in a choice of two patterns.
For something considerably more casual, opt for the Ripit flip flop. This comes in two different colors – charcoal and pink – and an extremely spongy multi-layered and multi-coloured sole.
These styles are all very well for summer footwear or at indoor functions during the colder months, but if you are after warm boots, Candies once again comes up trumps. The Calie boot, which has a sable-coloured suede upper and a two and a half inch wooden tapered heel, is mid-calf height and an extremely elegant option for autumn or winter days at work or in the city. With a funky buckle fastening at the top and a simple design elsewhere, this boot achieves comfort at the same time as class.
