Color — Nougat
With narrow, surprisingly sturdy block heels (a little over two inches high) and moldable insoles done in the same ultradurable full-grain Italian leather as the upper (it patinas beautifully), Soma is as easy on the feet as it is on the eyes. And with its elegantly tapered toes and slim silhouette, it certainly is that. Note the gold hardware zips along the back for on-and-off ease.
This Australian footwear label made its debut with a collection of all-black sandals almost five years ago. Since then, designer Anna McLaren’s bold lines and classic minimalism has received wide international praise. A Emery sandals are artisanally handcrafted in India from high-quality, beautifully moldable leather sourced from the meat industry (a practice that keeps hides from being wasted). And dedicated to a trend-resistant design approach, the label masterfully produces day-to-night styles that hold up season after season.
