NYC Shoes, shoes and more shoes ?
There are a whole bunch of shoes to acknowledge; and just in time for the holidays. With new lines from Dr. Martens, Reebok, and more, there’s a shoe for everyone.
Kicking off the festivities, Dr. Martens previewed their SS20 collection on Oct. 29 at Ace Bar in New York City. Known for their air-padded soles, the brand curated a collection full of versatility and a whole lot of personality. One pair reads “God Save the Queen” and a ton more are fully adorned with studs, are a combination of textures and colors and more. The rise of Dr. Martens took place during the 1990s along side the rise of grunge fashion. and has been making its mark since. Similar to Reebok, another English shoe brand eleven years younger than Docs.
Founded in 1958, Reebok remains a go to sports brand. The SS20 line was previewed in NYC on Nov. 14 at Root NYC. A mix of shoes and clothing, all of the pieces were unique. The clothes were bold in their colors but were made uniformed by a black and white background. The sneakers, on the other hand, clearly ranged from definitely athletic to for sure wearing these to flex on the gram; but one pair can surely serve both purposes.
Dedicated to catering to athletes, Reebok also has pieces for festival goers, the active mom to be and anyone interested in streetwear fashion. This line, a mix of Reebok’s essence and current trends, explains why the company decided on making the vector Reebok’s official logo as of 2020. Created in 1992, the company feels the vector logo will better represent the past and future of Reebok.
Meanwhile, Nordstrom’s flagship store in Manhattan celebrated their Perfect Pair Collection with ELLE magazine. Held on Nov. 7, the cocktail hour consisted of fun snacks and lots of shopping. The line, exclusive to Nordstroms, carries brands such as Ugg, Hunter, Nike, Birkenstock and more. The twist? Each brand collaborated with fashion muses to create each shoes unique to this collection. These muses include Winne Harlow who paired with Steve Madden, Kim Shui who paired with Jeffery Campbell and more. Lots of boots, long and short, these collections are definitely worth a trip to Nordstroms.
On the other side of town in Williamsburg, Blundstone’s threw a party for the opening of their first U.S. pop up shop and gifted everyone with complimentary boots (Thank you Blundstone)! Simple in its design, Blundstone boots are made to withstand any and everything while being stylish and comfortable. Hailing all the way from Tasmania since 1870, the brand has developed a wide range of Chelsea boots and lace ups of various colors and textures all water resistant with a natural foot shape.
