Yes. Your read it right. Today Save Your Sole is 7 years old and what an amazing journey it has been. From the day we bought our first pair of Christian Louboutin red soled shoes in New York, to the realization that we could create a product to repair these red soles to then opening our office in New York (just around the corner from the Christian Louboutin store on Horatio St where our first pair of red soles came from) it has been nothing short of a miracle.

And meeting Christian Louboutin outside a temple in India. Well that is a story for another time.

From walking the runways at New York Fashion Week with Oscar De La Renta, to the stage on the West End for the Spice Girls Musical. To selling our products with some of the biggest retailers including Nordstrom and working with  wholesalers around the world to deliver our products straight to you and the soles of your shoes. We can’t wait to share our newest collaboration with you when that launches in the spring of 2017.

We have also been so lucky to work with incredible stylists, designers, magazines, shoe lovers and customers around the world.

Meet our new Clear Rubber Shoe Sole. Made in Italy. Just for you.

For years the only option for a repair sole for your designer shoes was a thick (and ugly) black rubber sole that a shoe repairer would glue onto your sole to make it last a lifetime.

Fast forward to 2017 and we have come a long way. Meet our newest product. The Clear Rubber Shoe Sole. Now you don’t need to worry about matching the color of the rubber repair sole to the color of your shoe sole.

2016-clear-rubber-sole2016-clear-rubber-sole

The sole can be used on all colored soles on all designer soles for long lasting protection which won’t alter the original color of the sole. Because this sole is see-through.

It is a designer rubber sole that is ultra-thin made in a clear rubber. It has inbuilt grip and will cover the front part of the sole. Allowing the original shoe sole colour to show through. And the best part is that it is a long lasting and permanent solution.

New York Fashion Week

Each pack contain two soles and each sole can be cut to the shape of your shoe sole. Made to fit shoe soles up to women size 42.

How do I apply the Soles?  Well, for all of our rubber repair soles we suggest that you purchase the clear soles online at Save Your Sole. Then take the soles (with your shoes) to a repairer for a professional fit.

If you decide to apply the soles to the shoes DIY style – you will need clear glue (like Shoo Goo) and a pair of scissors to cut off the excess rubber around the edges of the sole. Just clean the sole and wait to dry. Apply glue to the shoe sole and to the rubber sole and apply pressure to attach to the shoe (time required will depend on glue used – please follow the instructions provided on the glue packaging). Use scissors to remove the excess rubber and smooth the edges. And you are done.

Shoe of the Week: Over the Knee and Through the Woods

Valentino Suede Over The Knee Booties

When it comes to fall footwear, the over the knee boot is a closet staple and also a closet conundrum.  Yes, the scene of Julia Roberts singing Prince’s “Kiss” in Pretty Woman will never grow old, but those over the knee patent leather boots are a little less charming. So, what is the key to pulling off the look?  Subtlety.  A lower stacked heel, or a flat bottom boot is sexy without being startling.  While black is always a wise investment, neutral tones, grey, and even oxblood can be other outstanding options.  The Valentino Suede Over The Knee Booties encompasses all of these things with its covered heel, subtle stitching, and rich texture.  This is much more mega babe than Pretty Woman.

Trendspotting: Let the Boots Do the Talking

miranda-kerr-airport-style

Wouldn’t it be great if you you could rely on one item to pull an entire outfit together?  Sure would take all of the frustration and panic out of those morning closet exercises.  Oh, wait… thanks to this season’s embellished booties, I may have the answer for you.  It’s nearly as basic as elementary school arithmetic.  Jeans + white T + leather jacket + embellished boot = cool girl casual.

Don’t believe me?  Just take a cue from mega babes and style icons Miranda Kerr and Rosie Huntington-Whitely.  From Nicholas Kirkwood to Alexander Wang to Rosetta Getty, this season is all about the the boot.  Forget the walking- these boots were made for talking.

Shoe of the Week: Ballettonet Chelsea Boot

screen-shot-2016-10-04-at-7-24-31-pm

Ah, September equinox has come and gone.  And with it, it’s left us with cooler temperatures and good reason not to shave our legs (hint: pants).  With it, however, we’ve been left in a state of confusion when it comes to clothing ourselves.  We’re stuck debating whether something is hashtag too soon or just holding on to a feeling.  No one wants to be the girl wearing her winter coat on the first day of school, nor do we want to be the girl clinging to a croptop and a dream.

And this doesn’t just fall under the category of clothing.  One must take into account her footwear.  Sandals seem to be desperate and tall boots just appear a bit Pretty Woman as early as October 1st.

What is the only alternative?  The perfect booties.  Namely, the Chelsea Boot by Ballettonet.  A simple, yet sophisticated flat bootie designed in collaboration with Jasmin Howell (you may know her as Friend In Fashion), this shoe can easily transition from day– with a perfectly distressed pair of denim trousers, to evening– with the most conscious of bodycon dresses.  Dressed up or dressed down, high shine or matte sophistication, this boot will impress if not not only for its design details but for the fact that it’s a limited edition piece- only 100 pairs made entirely in Italy by the Baccaro family in each style.

Fall Trends: Velvet Underground

velvet-street-style-fall-16

Cuffing season is upon us.  And if you’re like me and haven’t found a suitable suitor to keep you warm on those chilly fall evenings, you’re going to need to resort to alternative sources of heat.  Yes, there’s cashmere and corduroy (which made a surprising comeback), but this fall’s front runner is another 90’s throwback: velvet.  And every “it” girl, model, or digital influencer has been seen sporting some form of the fabric- from crushed velvet body suits to the covetable Phillip Lim Kyoto boot.  Mostly seen in jewel tones, there’s a shape and silhouette for every body to incorporate into their fall wardrobes from velvet booties to slinky slip dresses.  Below are a few of my favorites.

Raising Grace

unmade-bed.jpg

You know those mornings when you roll over onto your crisp, cold pillow with a slight smile on your face, ready to face the day and then you recall the terror from the night before like a bad dream?  Your blood runs cold and you recall the chaos you may have caused after two too many martinis.  Suddenly, you’re cursing that pleasant morning light pouring in through your window and wishing you could crawl back under the covers.  That is how I greeted this morning.

It all started innocently enough.  Meeting some friends downtown at Spotted Pig for some post work let loose, which turned into at conglomeration of crews at Employees Only, and then somehow, as it always does, ended up a twenty dollar cab ride home from Mr. Purple at 2am.

I feel a brief moment of relief and then the next wave of panic sets in.  Where is my phone?  This is two fold: do I even have my phone?  When I find it, what type of tomfoolery will I find?  I swing my legs out from under my duvet and onto the floor.  Crap!  My feet land directly on the platform heel of my RAYE Lois Heel that I wore the night before on my tour de dirty martini.

After recovering from the shoe related pang of pain, I spot my phone teetering precariously from my lucite coffee table.  I throw myself towards it like a quarterback attempting to save a rogue pass.  I type in my password and am pleased to find no new messages from anyone but my best friend, Phan.  Phew. No harm, no foul.  Just when I begin to release a sigh of relief, I receive an email alert. It’s my boss.  A glance at the email chain and I see that I had some interesting ideas about our latest project last night around midnight.

No time for crafting up my detoxifying green juice, let alone my normal morning meditation.  A quick scrub of my face, slicked back ponytail, standard black shift dress, and slipping into my Kat Maconie Anna Heels, that have always brought me good luck. I grab my KREWE du optic St. Louis sunglasses as armor and march out onto the street ready to clean up my mess.
