Shoes strikes the fine balance between elegance and ease
Choosing between comfort and style is not an easy task, especially for the fashion forward girl. Perhaps one of the many reasons, New Yorkers always keep a pair
of comfortable shoes handy while
out and about. Having spent a good chunk of her career in the Big Apple as part of the marketing team at Versace, Veena Ashiya realised that there was a need for footwear that offered the best of both worlds. To that end, she launched Monrow Shoes after returning to Bengaluru. “With a growing movement towards anti-fit clothing and thanks to the athleisure trend, comfort has become so important ,” says Veena.
The shoes provide
extra support at pressure points, such as the heels and toes. Extra padding ensures your feet are well cushioned and care is taken to make the upper fit just right. Apart from stilettos and boots, there’s also a line up of ballet shoes, wedges, and sneakers. Crafted with manmade leather, the parts are sourced from Vietnam, Sri Lanka and China. A group of expert designers looks at global trends before creating the designs. Veena recommends the PYT mule, a double-strapped number that brings together shades of nude and beige. Opt for the Red Fur Finesse Heels for something feminine and sexy. To be introduced in a month’s time, the Convertible Sneakers come with removable tassels in numerous shades. The shoes are available on their website, and on Myntra, Jabong and Amazon. They’re also present at Bangalore Central in Jayanagar and Bellandur.
