Pamper that sole



Pretty designs for your feet

MOST OF us neglect our feet. Yet, surprisingly, one can make the most effective fashion statement with the right foot accessories. And that is the sole endeavour of the store called Sole's.

The store has a chic and trendy collection of shoes for women. The range is quite stunning, with colours such as purples, pinks, and bright reds ruling the roost. Be it flats, platforms, stilettos or pumps, Sole's showcases unique styles and patterns in footwear.

Hussain, who runs the store on Commerical Street vouches for the originality of the patterns, which "is not available elsewhere". He also adds that the most popular of the lot are shoes that have stone and sequin work on them. This party wear range is enviable indeed and they come in colours such as pink, gold, red, and green. The sequined ones are priced at Rs. 895, while those with multicoloured stones and Swarovski crystals are priced between Rs. 1,250 and Rs. 1,750.

Ayaz Mahmood, the proprietor of the store, ensures us that Sole's gives us the latest styles and designs from the fashion industry. All the shoes are manufactured in Mumbai and come with a six-month guarantee on manufacturing faults.

Another impressive range at Sole's is the Italian leather Bantu, which come in the shapes of square, pointed, or rounded. There are also closed shoes that are ideally suited for office or party wear. Then there are shoes with straps in pastel shades such as peach, light gold, grey, beige, and light pink. One can also opt for the Butterfly range that has self-coloured prints on tan, crème, or beige leather. This range is priced at Rs. 895.

For casual wear Sole's offers shoes in red, navy blue, and purple. These are priced at Rs. 695. Denim lovers can pick smart casual footwear in denim for Rs. 495. Another modish pair had zippers on it and is available in three colours.

The snakeskin finish in patent leather has many shoes as well as handbags. Sole's offers a wide variety of browns in this finish. Women can pick handbags in reds, browns, blacks, and blues. Though the prices are steep (Rs. 2,000 upwards), the enviable collection of co-ordinated shoes and handbags is rather difficult to resist. This section offers colours such as pink and light green to brown with prints.

Sole's also has a "Heart to Sole" privilege card for those who spend Rs. 2,000 at the store at one time. The membership card entitles a customer to a special discount at the store and free subscription to its fashion and lifestyle magazine.

Sole's can be contacted on 5066638/39.
