Embarking on a journey to conquer the world comes Ara, ticking off each country they pass through as nothing short of a mere conquest. We try to reign them in but they just keep on giving. The kind you’d go on a date with and be left longingly pining for a second. The kind that for 60 years, (can’t deny they’ve got experience) will suck you in whilst you crawl back for more, time and time again. A guilty affection that has you thinking ‘there’s no one else like you in the world… you’re the shoe that I want.’ Ok, ok. We may have just described that bad news childhood sweetheart – but did he ever look as sweet as this? We think not.
As fickle as fashion may be, Ara adapt with the times – but their core forever remains the same. This season, we’ve noticed a slight theme. From boot to trainer to elegant kitty heel, they’ve been injected with a shimmery charm, just in time for Christmas! A dreamy set of creations following each other onto the magical roundabout of festive fun. And yes, we do mean that magic roundabout. If that classic film reference doesn’t warm the cockles of your festive heart – well then… you may as well give up now and crawl right back into that pit you helped the grinch dig up.
Sweet, feminine and utterly adorable. With a decorated toe that looks as though it’s been neatly dunked in a little pot of glitter – comes the ‘Classic Black Leather Medium Heel Pumps’. In other words, the quaint, innocent pump has earned the confidence boost she needs to work or party, yet still embody an elegance that lends itself to a small touch of royalty.
We’ve got the best of the best in reptilian footwear with the ‘Jenny Granville Sneaker Style Grey Shoes’. Distressed scales and a slimy-inspired glimmer transport us back to our childhood, where possessing a textured, touchy-feely book meant you’d made it as the number one cool kid. We’ve certainly not grown up… for Ara have given us our own adult version of playful feels, this time in the form of a snake. And who doesn’t jump at the chance to stroke something pretty!? This time, however, you’re wearing it. Stroke it whenever you want, ladies – there’s no chance you’re putting this page down.
We’ve got a taste for the mullet in shoe form thanks to the ‘Leather Heeled Pewter Ankle Boots’. What appears to be business as usual from the front is actually a whole other level of party from the back. Suede nubuck compliments a glistening behind like a glorious baboon in drag. Not to mention, our favourite two-tone design has pulled it out of the bag once again, giving way to a creation that is both smart, stylish and utterly fit for a party.
