SHOE BRAND: ROGUES
I came across Rogues one evening while getting lost in Instagram and now i'm obsessed. They are such cool, happy and comfortable looking shoes! I rarely wear heels but still love a statement, colourful shoe so these tick a lot of boxes for me.
Rogues are designed in London and manufactured in Portugal, they are like a cross between a trainer and a brogue. I can't wait to get some (but which colour?).
Here is some more info about this new brand and if you ask me its one to watch:
NAME OF BRAND/COMPANY: Rogues
DATE IT WAS FOUNDED: Launched May 2015
BY WHOM IT WAS FOUNDED: Katie Harland
WHY WAS IT CREATED: Designer and founder Katie Harland entered into the shoe business following years of frustration at the inability to find the perfect flat shoe: pumps were un supportive, heels uncomfortable, trainers unprofessional and traditional brogues unflattering. Rogues provided a well-made, supportive alternative to all this. With added swag. Her background in advertising has formed an invaluable foundation on which to build a solid business plan, whilst her artistic education at The Slade and the School of Communication Arts 2.0 has given her a wealth of creative inspiration and contacts.
WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR BRAND: Rogues were born from a desire to create footwear that's not only functional, but elegant and full of character. A love-child from the colour and comfort of trainers and the craft and credentials of brogues, Rogues should have a firm place in any modern woman's wardrobe. Created from three pieces of leather to form an iconic shape, Rogues are manufactured in Portugal where generations of hand-crafted quality leather goods have been produced. The slight platform, the low cut around the ankle and the almond shape on the toe all ensure that this is both an elegant and flattering shoe, whereas the pick'n'mix laces and wide range of colours place creativity and customisation at the heart of the label. Team all this with classic shades of leather, luxurious pony skin and signature neon laces, and you have a dynamic combination that can't fail to stand out.
WHAT WE SHOULD BUY FROM YOU: Because with Rogues on your feet you can't help but smile.
