It is the season where everyones social calendars are jam-packed. This means finding the perfect outfit for every event. Of course a classic LBD will tick most of the boxes but what about what to wear on your feet? Yes, heels seem like an obvious choice but if you are out almost every night and want your feet to survive then sometimes a cute pair of sandals will work just as well with the added level of comfort.
St Tropez based craftsman designer K. Jacques offered to send me a custom pair of sandals. This is the preferred sandals designer of choice by the likes of Kate Moss so I couldn’t decline. The customization features allows you to pick the style and choose the type and treatment of the leather as well as the colours. There are numerous options which means you can match your sandals to a specific outfit or go for colours that will work with several looks like I did.
I chose the Coriolan style and decided to go with the same type of leather across all three straps but in a natural shade, red and black. To customise this particular style the starting price is $240 and depending on which type and treatment is can range in price quite a bit with my custom style costing $271.
The quality is impeccable and I find them extremely comfortable and truly a work of art. The size does run a little small though so be aware of that when ordering.
“K. Jacques is the hallmark of family know-how; three generations have created and transformed the Tropezienne gladiator sandal into footwear of timeless elegance and quality. K. Jacques is simultaneously the story of a family, a place and a product first debuting in 1933.” Do give the story of this incredible company a read over here as well as the tradition behind them over here. Thank you K. Jacques for my pair of sandals!
