By Anilyn America

As a woman of good taste and an appreciation for all things beautiful, I naturally find myself gravitating towards this line. Here are a couple of our newest Gidigio's that I'm sure you'll fall in love with as well!

{Chianciano Boot}

This is going to be your favorite all season go-to shoe. Its oil-tanned leather makes it extremely versatile when pairing with all colors and prints, and the heel height is perfect for long walks through the city. 

{Danger Shoe}

The only danger you'll be in will be from the anti-fashion police! This shoe is unique, yet wearable. Pleats on one side, a zipper on the other, and tread to maximize your chance of staying on your feet even on the slickest Seattle days. 

{Positano Shoe}

Dress this shoe up with your favorite little black dress, or be city chic with dark denim jeans. I especially love the laces and the low scalloped collar. It makes me feel like a sassy pirate, and it's not even Halloween yet. Win!

Since it's inception in 1996, Gidigio has become somewhat of a boutique "Best in Show," scoring high on quality, style, and comfort. Slip one on and you'll be convinced. I doubt you'll even want to take it off. Viva Gidigio! Viva Italia!

Chooka Rain Skimmers

Rain,  rain ….not so sure I want it to go away this time … (granted it’s not here now … who’s loving summer as much as I am right now?) BUT … when the rain comes, you will be ready thanks to Sole Food staying one step ahead of the trend yet again!! We now have Chooka Rain Skimmers and love them! Yes, even in the summer as they are super cute to wear as an everyday ballet flat! These guys are super cute and also comfy! It’s the perfect solution to a rainy day when you don’t want to wear your Hunter Boots (which should be in stock soon … a true Seattleite needs both if you ask me … boots and skimmers). Stop in soon as these guys are flying out of here!

Swedish Hasbeens

Usually when you hear the phrase “has beens” you don’t think of fashion or fun, right? We’re about to change your mind on that one … with a new line of amazingly adorable shoes and bags from a company called Swedish Hasbeens. Never heard of them? That’s ok, I’ll tell you a little bit about them and next thing you know you will be just as in love with these shoes as we are!

Team members Amie and Angela out and about in their favorite Toffels!

As the story goes, the company started when 300 pairs of red, white and black clogs from the 70’s were discovered in a basement of an old clog factory … hence the name Hasbeens. Oh yeah and the basement was in Sweden! “Our ambition is to continue to release more incoherent and fun shoes and stuff inspired by Hasbeens that once ruled the planet. “ And everyone here at Sole Food thinks they have hit the nail on the head. They are still handmade with respect for people and the environment in the old traditional way, and in small factories that have made shoes for decades.  Happy toffels make happy people.  What are toffels you ask? Toffel is Swedish for slipper … not only did you learn about a great new line, now you’re learning another language. Who said shoes won’t make you smarter?

Now that we’ve piqued your curiosity, and hopefully we’ve changed your opinion on the phrase “has beens” we will see you soon and help you find the prefect pair!
