If you look at the classic colors of fall work boots, you will notice one or two look exactly like the color of a good bourbon whiskey. It's something we've always said of many boots that boats rich, deep reddish-brown colors. So when we heard that Wolverine and Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery were collaborating on a second batch of limited edition boots, the thought immediately came to mind (along with, where were we for the first batch). The brands come back together with a rugged, timeless design that features a wood heel handcrafted from the bourbon barrels that held this year's release of the Old Rip Van Winkle 10-Year bourbon.

Bourbon lovers and boot lovers are sure to rejoice in the new, limited-edition, Wolverine 1000 Mile boot. The new boot has a distinct look to distinguish from last year's batch, perfect for collectors looking to celebrate boots and bourbon still created largely the same way they were more than a century ago.

Batch 2 of the Wolverine x Old Rip Van Winkle collaboration draws inspiration from the barrels that house the legendary Old Rip Van Winkle bourbons for 10 to 23 years. Made in the USA, this year's boot features a classic moc toe design and is made with Horween Whiskey Predator leather – a rugged leather meant to stand the test of time that only gets better with age. The heels are handcrafted from the wood of the bourbon barrels that held this year's release of Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year bourbon. The boots are finished with a hand-numbered, textile tongue tag that reflects the individual craftsmanship put into each pair.

"This collaboration celebrates and supports the hard-working people behind our products," said Devon Vanoostveen, brand representative for Wolverine. "These rugged boots and fine bourbons would not be possible without the skills and dedication of so many blue-collar workers; farmers, coopers, carpenters, distillery workers, truck drivers, and shoemakers, to name a few."

"Together, we're able to honor our shared commitment to craft while also supporting America's future workforce, inspiring a new generation to take pride in working with their hands."

Welcome to October, the month where we highlight and celebrate all those who raise awareness, money, and give back in the fight to find a cure for Breast Cancer. That's right, it is officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we're here to highlight two footwear brands giving back to the cause. While many brands donate a portion of the sales towards BCA (a very admirable thing to do), the two footwear brands we're highlighting, AVRE and M.Gemi, are donating 100% of proceeds from their specially made BCA footwear styles to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

In honor of the revival of Sex and the City, we thought we'd highlight one of Sarah Jessica Parker's footwear collection styles. Since we will soon be in the transition period between the summer and fall seasons, we thought the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Modish Mules would be the perfect style to highlight.

The eye-catching and sophisticated mules boast an all-over, iridescent fabric upper, pointed toe, a wide, faux buckle strap across the foot, open back, and 3" wrapped heel. Available in a stunning Silver Glow (although the iridescent color does goes purple and green), you can score these beauties for only $153.59 on www.6pm.com.

For many, the pandemic not only interrupted our work life, it also interrupted our ability to live our lives like we're used to. While unemployment was a big help, it took a while to kick in for us and that meant making sacrifices. Many of us had to re-budget and give up non-essential things. That meant saying goodbye to getting those cute shoes you saw, treating yourself to a birthday gift, and updating your wardrobe once again (at least our feet are the same size post-pandemic pounds). Well ladies, you can once again treat yourself to some fab shoes, without destroying your budget, thanks to Coco Blue Shoes.

Trilly Shoes, a company in Milan, Italy, created a women's shoe with extensible heels, so women everywhere can wear one shoe comfortably all day and still look fashionable.

Veronica Crisafulli conceived the shoe in 2018 and partnered with co-founder Alessandro Filosa to create the prototype. Working with Cercal Research Centre, the pair developed the working designs and located an appropriate manufacturer.

Shoeography: Trillytech Launches Kickstarter for Heels with Adjustable Heights

Trilly Shoes beat its deadline of June 15, 2021, to fully fund its Kickstarter. That means it obtained the funding for wide-scale production of the shoe that can go from 2 inches to about 2.75 inches (5cm to 6cm to 7cm) at the click of a button.

No Extra Pair of Shoes Needed

Currently, women who wear high heels need to pack a pair of low heels or flats to have an alternate, comfortable pair of shoes to wear. To alleviate discomfort, this means taking off their heels to change into flats, exposing them to germs. About 80% of illness-causing germs get spread by touch, but women do not typically change shoes in an environment that lets them wash their hands or clean off the shoes while they change them. With the Trilly design, you push a button on the heel, and it raises or lowers it providing a more hygienic method that requires no extra pair of shoes stashed in your handbag.

Shoeography: Trillytech Launches Kickstarter for Heels with Adjustable Heights

NCF Tag Leads to Webpage

The stylish shoes come in two designs – the Elisa and the Carol. Both are made for traveling long distances. Not only can you customize their heel heights, but an NCF tag on the shoe lets you scan it with your smartphone to open a proprietary website about the shoes. Each week about 900,000 domains get registered, but you only need to read the one that explains how Trilly crafts these shoes.

That website gives you greater insight into these high heels that help you avoid the knee, back, and hip pain that high heels cause some women. You will learn about its curved heel that works better with the shoe's sole than typical high heel designs.

Shoeography: Trillytech Launches Kickstarter for Heels with Adjustable Heights

A Better Convertible Shoe

The company also delves into its choice to go with a push-button design for a more hygienic option than other convertible high heels, which require you to remove the heel and replace it with a flat piece. Those types of shoes provide a small tote bag in which you can stash the pieces. Trilly Shoes avoid all of that by using one shoe with no removable parts.

Trilly Shoes locates its entire process in Italy, from design to production. They partnered with a manufacturer that's been in business for a century. That reliability and experience have merged with Trilly's innovative technology to produce a fashionable shoe suitable for casual to formal occasions. You can wear it to the office, then change the height for a night of clubbing.

Environmentally Friendly Design

The shoe also utilizes an environmentally friendly design. The upper uses organic leather while the design uses a heel of recycled plastics crafted from pineapple, apple peels, cactus leaves, and grape waste. Designed for comfort as well as to last through many wears, the insole structure uses no metal. The shoe design uses only water-based glue.

The company's NFC tag-accessible webpage goes into more detail about its internal processes, supply chain, and company mission. You can also install a mobile app to explore the company's shoes and how they fit your own feet. The app uses spot-size technology to help you create a 3D scan of your feet. The benefit of this nifty feature is finding your perfect shoe size and avoiding pinched toes or squished ankles. You can determine with a few clicks and a picture what shoe size you should wear, including whether you need narrow, regular, or wide-width shoes. As Trilly Shoes points out, that results in fewer returned shoes and reduces your CO2 footprint.

Check out these revolutionary heels today by visiting the Trilly Shoes website or their successful Kickstarter campaign.
