Armando Cabral Broome Sneaker

As we progress through Spring and approach the unofficial start of summer it's time to lock the season's footwear down do you can focus on barbecues, beach weekends and 1/2 day Fridays.  Armando Cabral has his Broome sneaker on tap for those impromptu weekend getaways as well as that usual daily grind.  The silhouette is a clean lace-up with a minimal detailing on the front and vamp and a buttery textured perforated leather on the black and brown versions while the whole boasts a smooth surface.  Comfort and flexibility ushers in with the insole being stitched to the upper leather and lining.  Pair this with all that is Spring and Summer from trim suits to cropped shorts.  Available now in all three color ways at ArmandoCabral.com.
Get ready, set, pedicure. As the temperature slowly warms up and we inch our way to full blown open-toe shoe season (aren't you excited?), the more spring/summer footwear styles we see, the more we wait with anxious anticipation. So until our toes can really be free, we're taking refuse in the visual loveliness that is the Nina Shoes Spring/Summer 2016 Collection. You may remember we recently highlighted the Nina Originals Skye Gladiator Sandal as our Shoe of the Day, well here are some more Nina Shoes styles to drool over.


From statement shoes to dazzling shine and sparkles, Nina Shoes keeps you chic and sophisticated with a variety of go-to fashion pumps, wedges, and sandals. Details like the 70’s inspired patchwork of the Nina Originals Score Clogs give the classic silhouette a cool, vintage allure; while modern updates, like the sporty interpretation seen on the Saida Gladiator Sandal, keeps you jet setting comfortably.


Cage sandals continue to win the hearts of shoe addicts everywhere, and styles like the above Gladiator wedge sandal in the on-trend, mirror metallic, will more than please the shoelovers who love the gladiator silhouette. If you're like us and are fans of daytime shine, we highly recommend the glittery Gianina Wedge shown above. This sexy and strappy beauty adds some bold shine to any look (we particularly love the idea of rocking it as a shimmery neutral).


We're loving what Nina Shoes has to offer in flats and low heels. Aside from the striking Saida Gladiators shown above, the Nina Shoes Spring/Summer 2016 Collection also offers some wonderfully stylish shoes at comfortable heights. The everyday-chic Ilka Sandal features an tonal, faux tortoise-like shell adornment on its vamp that adds a subtle statement to the style; the very sporty, minimalist-chic Summer Sandal, which conforms to natural curves of your foot, perfectly fuses fashion and comfort with its elongated vamp, velcro strap, and padded insole; and we love the gold trim and shape of the upper of the colorblocked Virginia Wedge. This colorful, leather slip-on will add some effortless style to your look.


While we're waiting for our toes to be free, we'd happily navigate the in between season with the structured Nina Shoes Poetry L Pumps. This classic style features a modern take on a 60's mod style with an upper in funky basketweave pattern, and modern chunky heel. How can you not love!
