New FRYES at Sole Food!

We know, we know. Summer just started. But in the world of shoes, spring and summer is ending, and fall is a few weeks away! Sole Food's fall collection is already arriving, and we are excited; we have some great new styles from our one of our favorite companies...from Frye!
Carson Riding Boot 15L [US whole & half sizes 6-10]
This boot is a timeless piece, with great hand craftsmanship and beautiful, simple detailing. Made with fine, soft leathers, the Carson Riding Boot is a perfect modern interpretation of the classic riding boots of the wild west.
Jane Ankle Boot [US whole & half sizes 6-10]
The Jane Ankle Boot is made with awesome hand crafted leather and detailed with the signature Frye harness ring, studs and straps. With a little bit of lift with the 2" heel, this boot is ready to be dressed up or down.
Heath Outside Zip 15L [US whole and half sizes 6-11]
This boot is sure to be this season's best seller. The Heath boot blends together the best of Frye: its classic square toe seen on the signature Harness boot; oh-so-soft leathers, and great craftmanship! We have this boot in a beautiful maple brown, which is perfect for wearing all year round with your denim, skirts, dresses, everything!
This is just the beginning...we'll be getting more and more Frye boots as the summer takes off! And if you know these boots, these will not last long in our store! We have many more styles already in stock, and we have a great team that will help you get fitted with the right pair. Thanks for reading!

Chie Mihara

Sole Food is excited to carry a new line of designer shoes for women. You may have seen them in the store earlier this spring, but if you haven't seen or tried them on, you should!

Chie Mihara is a world-class designer, born in Brazil, studied design in Japan, and now lives in Europe creating beautiful shoes. She launched her shoe line in Elda, Spain in 2002 with the goals of designing footwear that is feminine and attractive, without giving up comfort.

"Every Chie Mihara shoe features an anatomical footbead that Chie designed specifically to accomodate a woman's foot. "

Can you ask for more in a shoe? Chie takes great dedication and draws from her worldwide roots to design timeless shoes that have a background in vintage style but speak in contemporary language. Her collections reflect her multi-cultural background..."Brazil informs the feminine details; Japan influences her design approach; the U.S. contributes practicality; and Spain is the source for high quality construction."

You'll appreciate the careful attention and craftsmanship of these shoes!

Here are a couple Chie Mihara shoes at Sole Food:
