Consolidated Shoe Company, a leading fashion footwear company based in Lynchburg, Virginia, is redefining modern luxury with the debut of its new brand of women’s footwear casuals, Naked Feet Shoes. The capsule collection comprises essential basics for the elegantly cultured woman.
Styles combine artisanal craftsmanship and architectural lines with a sense of classic chic trends. Simplicity is both the first thought and the final goal. Elevated materials and intricate details highlight how the shoe not only looks, but feels.
“This collection fulfills a need for high-end comfort-driven footwear,” said Maurizio Celin, Naked Feet designer. "Sophistication and comfort is a beautiful contradiction, seen in how we play into the footbed aspects, and combine them with modern architectural earmarks."
Naked Feet styles achieve this synthesis with soft supple leathers and suedes, unconstructed silhouettes, memory foam insoles, elastic elements that move with the foot and wearable heel heights.
While the spring 2017 line launches within the industry this week at the Fashion Footwear Association of New York’s shoe expo, the inaugural fall line will unveil to retail customers beginning in July.
“We have created the fall capsule collection in the spirit of our successful spring pre-launch,” said Todd Partridge, Consolidated Shoe Company’s chief design officer. “The fall collection provides a sustainable opportunity to clearly communicate our product vision and strategy of providing a point of differentiation, comfortable luxury for the modern woman, that is currently missing in the market.”
Naked Feet’s pre-launch introduced six styles suited to a refined and globally sophisticated target market. Each shoe featured a comfort-driven seven millimeter memory foam insole, speaking to the brand’s core values of sensibility and individuality.
“I like the sophisticated, clean look, along with the comfort,” said a Naked Feet customer. “Plus the subtle detailing and the crossover appeal.”
Each style in the capsule fall line represents a current big idea trend. No two styles are alike. Shoes are grouped into collections of Modern Geometry and Artisanal, retailing from $105-$285.
