Ever walked a mile in anyone else' shoes and wanted to give them back? Wait a minute, even a mile in your own shoes??? Aren’t shoes made to be a woman's best friend? Or so we have come to infer as shoe sales skyrocket all over the country. Women like shoes! Simple. The question is: Do we increasingly have to sacrifice comfort for style just to sport a good stomper? With so many choices of shoes out there, it gets harder for us to spot the comfort shoes that make our everyday living just a bit more relaxed. There is a thick line between Crocs and stilettos. That’s comfort!
Luckily, I'm always on the hunt for new designers that deliver quality and style at a reasonable price point. I just recently stumbled across a British boot company that hand makes leather boots and apparel with flexibility and style in mind. Gipsy Dharma has the most incredible selection of stylish bohemian-esque boots available in 3 lengths; ankle, knee and thigh-high.
Laces that go all the way up and leather that is soft to the touch with rubber soles make this boot the easy and adjustable comfort boot of the season. Sustainable leathers, snakeskin and a variety of solid colors and graphic prints are reasons to buy more than one at a time. Hey who doesn't like genuine leather, handcrafted boots for under $300? *Select styles are slightly higher. That's a steal!!!
I imagined, legs (good legs) couldn't get any sexier, but these boots by Gipsy Dharma bring sexy to a new level. The handcrafted leather shapes your leg, giving it the second skin feel. Not to be overlooked, that all the boots are incredibly lightweight and easy to maintain.
The skirts they make are bit more Xena warrior princess, but would make great bikini cover-ups for those luxurious getaways. Their skin minis also have a second skin feel and have an easy and free fit for extreme comfort. British designer and founder has a passion for making others feel good about themselves while inspiring them to keep dreaming up their next big thing.
"GiPsy Dharma is not just a brand it is a passion for handmade clothing and leather footwear. Life is a journey, a beautiful journey if one looks at it from the right perspective and GiPsy Dharma is my own philosophy of always being on the move and constantly dreaming of what will come next..." she boldly states as their mission.
I love the way this company falls so gracefully into many rising markets like the dancers, gipsies and fairies as they claim. This is your fantasy for a shoe with a reality of comfort. They have a pretty huge online following and just may be what we need to neutralize the gap between comfort shoes and style.
Some great colors for this winter season that I would recommend are plum purple, some of their darker tans and browns, black of course, and their blue snake-skinned lined boots. Just browsing through their site gives amazing ideas on how to wear them. With tunics and over-sized sweaters, long trench coats, jeans and leather jackets, or even a night out with a flirty dress. The possibilities are endless. Their brand not only promotes comfort and style, but self-awareness for women and who doesn't want to be sexy and comfortable at the same time? Gipsy Dharma has revolutionized the way we do boots and to that I say two toes up!!! Shop Gipsy Dharma on www.gipsydharma.com. And let your fantasy run wild!!! or you could just run in them all day long!
