I try not to shop too much for footwear these days…I’m sure it comes as no surprise when I say I already have a decent collection! I at least try to look for a variety of purposes when I shop for shoes…quality tall ones for the winter, mid-calf boots to cover up cropped jeans, low booties, black booties, a solid black pair of nice heels, a comfortable pair or two of sneakers (Converse, specifically) and one high top, a variety of different colors and styles of sandals (flat and with heels) for summer…you get the idea! I try to keep to mostly the basics, but it can be tough to discriminate when you run across something that’s SO COOL, even if it looks like something you already have! You gotta have some fun with shopping, too.
It’s especially difficult to refrain from purchasing something when the item is truly different and unique. Every time I tell myself I’ve got enough shoes, a brand like Lola Ramona pops up. I’m not really all that into cutesy girlie items, but I really appreciate creativity, and this brand has some shoes that I would definitely wear! Lola Ramona was born in 2006 in Copenhagen with the purpose to create “shoes with an attitude”, and something unlike anything seen in the market at the time. I feel that still holds very true!
Shoptiques has an awesome collection of Lola Ramona shoes, and a lot of them look like something a rockabilly Minnie Mouse would wear (in a good way of course)! I’m totally digging all the black and white options, and I always love stripes and polka dots. The Lola Ramona Marilyn Spats Heels and Lola Ramona Ava Calamity Boots as well as the Angie Two Tone Booties are my top favorites, but I collected several others I thought were most unlike any other shoes I’ve seen before, knowing that they were sure to please at least a handful of you!
“Founded in 2006, the Brand originates from Copenhagen, Denmark. On the discovery that a certain type of shoe was missing from the market, we set out to establish Lola Ramona. The path we would take was clear from the onset but how would we introduce this huge burst of shoe magic to the world at large? After a great deal of deliberation and just in time to present the slice of shoe heaven to the masses, Lola Ramona became the Brand that epitomises ‘shoes with an attitude’.”
“Specialising in shoes that have been designed to demonstrate style, freedom of choice and personality, Lola Ramona encourages you to wear your heart on your feet. Lola Ramona is not just a name, it’s a total concept…!”
“True to every design in which elements such as bows, dots and stripes are always present, the collection identifies each style by name, with every shoe demonstrating its own quirks. Humor is vital to the brand philosophy and with unsurmountable dedication from design to the final concept Lola Ramona injects the pizzazz into all of their footwear.”
“Women’s feet are a cause for celebration and pampering. All Lola Ramona designs are based on thoroughly analysed and developed ideas, guaranteeing your feet good support. Because of this you can enjoy both, the high and low stilettos, the chunkier heeled pumps and the beautiful wooden wedges – the design and construction will allow you to dance the night away, or shop all day long without sore feet. The shoes are without age. It’s more a question of whether you as a woman can identify yourself with the design or not! Lola Ramona is on a mission, and will not give in before all of us find our inner shoe diva. Surrender to a shoe universe full of surprises!”
“Lola Ramona shoes are small pieces of art you can carry on your feet”
“You can’t have too many shoes – only too little space”
