Brand Spotlight: French Sole

French Sole Summer Sparkles

If you hadn’t heard already (where have you been?) we’ve recently welcomed the incredible French Sole to our brand repertoire here at CLOGGS. The ballerina flats are stylish, comfortable and cute too - which provide just some of the reasons we’re absolutely delighted to have them on board.

Let’s look a little closer at what makes these phenomenal ballerina pumps so unique, and why they’re so popular!

History

The Original French Sole, by designer Jane Winkworth, is the pioneering design for the ballerina pump style that we know and love today. With the vision of creating a silhouette that is classic and beautiful but oozes luxury too, the result was the initial ‘French Sole’ ballerina shoe, founded in London in 1989. This same shoe design is still the foundation of this brand; a brand which has been associated with some of the most famous females in the world.

Shoe Styles

Their brand mantra is ‘kick off your heels’ and when you get a look at some of these gorgeous flats - it’s not difficult to understand why many women are favouring the gorgeous, comfortable ballerina silhouette to skyscraper heels!

Henrietta

The ‘Henrietta’ has a narrow to medium fit, and it’s simply a timeless example of the iconic ballet flat style. The ‘Henrietta - Nude Leather’ as pictured above is a stunning and versatile flat shoe that marries style and comfort with ease. There’s an ever so slight heel which provides an appearance of elongated legs, and a very sophisticated bow detail towards the front of the shoe. There’s a beautifully soft lining for these shoes, providing the ultimate comfort!

The gorgeous Henrietta comes in a variety of alternative colours, all of which you can see if you click here, but here are some of our favourite designs:

India

Without a doubt one of French Sole’s most famous styles, the ‘India’ is a narrow fit flat pump with bags of personality. The stunning ‘India - Multi Glitter’ featured above is already flying off our shelves - and when you observe the stunning look of these shoes it’s not difficult to see why women want a pair in their wardrobe! These gorgeous flat shoes stand out from a mile away with their multi-coloured glitter and a soft purple lining to contrast, plus there’s an ever so slight heel for comfort and style too. The India features an incredible soft interior and a subtly chic bow detail which further adds character to these beautiful shoes.

The other ‘French Sole - India’ styles available at CLOGGS are these following two simply stunning pairs:

Simple

Our French Sole ‘Simple’ range comprises of two classic ballerina flats with a gorgeous quilter appearance in completely classic leather colours. The understated style of the ‘Simple Quilt/Patent Toe - Beige’ pictured above is incredibly versatile, but the contrasting materials offers a fantastic modern edge to this classic silhouette. We love the bow detail - and think these shoes would simply be the go-to flat shoe for any occasion!
