A few things I love, in no particular order: black leather, Netflix marathons, comfy blankets, spaghetti & meatballs, and shoes that are as comfortable as they are fancy. That last one is particularly relevant here, as we are about to discuss a brand I recently discovered and have completely fallen for. Say hello to MEANDHER.
I love heels as much as the next girl, but are they practical footwear for every day? Hell. No. Especially for a self proclaimed creature of comfort. I’d be lying if I said I wore them more than 3 days a week. Instead, and especially when I need to dress it up a bit, I opt for fancy footwear without the height. Enter loafers, oxfords and brogues — my go to styles for those not-so-casual days. The key to dressing up a look with menswear-inspired flats is to choose these classic styles with modern, feminine finishes, like colored suede, metallic trim and unique leather treatments. All of which the minds behind MEANDHER know a little something about.
Each of MEANDHER’s styles is developed in Italy and each material is hand sourced in Sante Croce, Tuscany. Paper patterns are developed to check proportions and design lines before final prototypes are produced in Italy with carefully selected hides. Predominantly made by hand, each pair is brought to life by craftsmen under the watchful eye of founder and designer Emily Cooper. With their high-end materials and classic lines, these babies will no doubt become a seasonless staple in any wardrobe. So, are the pricey? Well…yes. But you almost always get what you pay for, now don’t you?
