Good Evening Fashionistas,
I am back with another outfit post! This time I collaborated with an amazing blogger Belinda of This Kenyan Dubai Chronicles. I love how people who live in Dubai are always so friendly! We had so much fun shooting for this post.
Last year I was introduced to a luxury brand Stuart Weitzman. I was pleasantly surprised about how beautiful and comfortable Stuart Weitzman shoes are, especially high-heels and the boots. While doing the photo-shoot we did quite a bit of walking and the Prague castle area is definitely not high-heel friendly, therefore I can safely say they are very comfortable and they look amazing!
While I worked at the boutique last summer, I had an opportunity to get to know each shoe and its amazing how perfectly crafted they are. It is clear that their shoes are not only of a very high quality, but also are designed to fit many different customer foot types. For example different fit for high or low instep or different calf sizes. Finally my mum was able to find the perfect boots after looking everywhere and the Stuart Weitzman boots look just perfect on her.
I want to share with you a few interesting observations from my time at the boutique. For example, many people in Czech Republic seem to have pretty large shoe size, starting from size 40 and going up to 43. I find this interesting because for example my grandma’s shoe size is 36, mine is 38, so it is quite hard to find the right shoe for the right customer since the range is so huge. Also many people have one foot half a size smaller/bigger than the other, which means they have to buy a larger size and put a comfortable pad in the shoe to have a perfect fit. It is extremely important for the shoes to be made well and from good quality materials to ensure the customer has a comfortable experience. It is also important to take time to try various shoes to see what fits, it really makes a huge difference.
My suggestion, if you are going shopping for a specific shoe, you should always wear the outfit you will wear with it. It will allow you to see the whole outfit together. Moreover, don’t be afraid to try different styles. In my experience, when a customer chose a particular shoe, sometimes she wanted to buy it even when it didn’t fit her as it should and if we managed to convince her to try a completely different style, even if she initially didn’t like it, it looked absolutely stunning and it fit perfecly. Often those were the shoes customers chose to buy afterwards. So it pays off to try different styles.
Let me know about your experience with Stuart Weitzman shoes and if you visit Prague, definitely come visit the boutique in the center of Prague. Their address is U Obecního domu 2, Praha 1 and follow the Instagram page Stuart Weitzman Prague to get inspired.
