The Gaziano & Girling ‘Astaire’ is a befitting name for my preferred shoe from their RTW collection. Surely named after one of my favorite style icons Fred Astaire, this shoe not only represents him, his style, and his personality to a “T,” but also represents what I feel is truly lacking from shoe society. It is also what I would like to see more of. Gaziano & Girling nailed it with these!
Why is it that a navy shoe is not more popular? I look at this and I see something that could surely be introduced into society, seeing businessmen wearing this as a professional shoe. Navy (or blue), in my opinion, is just as versatile as brown. It is not ostentatious in any way, and would look good with almost all of the colors of the suit spectrum, except black.
I always say, ‘Why don’t we see blue shoes more often?’ I definitely plan to try and break this mold with the inclusion of the color blue into many of my shoe styles for my upcoming collections. Obviously, I cannot make a blue shoe for every model I make, but I can say that there will be at least one blue (or navy) option for each season that I produce shoes. For my first collection, there are already two and I am quite excited about them and think that many of you will be too (at least let’s hope so…).
Well, I just received these Gaziano & Girling Astaire’s today and cannot wait to wear them. Be on the lookout for some outfit pictures that I will take to show just how practical and easy a blue shoe can be in the average wardrobe.
