This fashion forward, motorcycle inspired silhouette is a welcome update to the traditional welly cut rain boot, affording fashionable women every where the opportunity to wear their favorite outfits without compromising effortless style and keeping feet warm and dry.

One of our favorite celebrity fashionistas, Jessica Alba, was spotted wearing the Seattle moto rain boot by Dav, available at DNA Footwear. Replicating the stylish star mom’s casual ensemble is as easy as throwing on a comfy shirt, a cozy cardigan and your favorite jeans. Jessica has personally paired her black pants and Dav Seattle moto rain boots with a Paige Denim Kadie shirt in Amour Plaid and an Isabel Marant for H&M Knit Cardigan.

Looking to sport the moto rain boot trend with a subtler edge and less metal hardware?  Check out the rugged Dav Moto Solid rain boot, boasting the same chic cut as the Seattle, minus the studded straps.

Sperry Top Sider carries a similar cut of rain boot, called the Falcon, available in Black and Olive. For those of you looking to take a walk on the wild side, the Sperry Top Sider Falcon is also available in a fun, animal print with studded buckle straps. All available colorways for the Falcon moto rain boot pictured, left.

Happy shopping, rainy day style mavens!

The Great Shoe Debate: Children’s High Heels

Monday, January 9th, 2012

children's high heels

 Many mothers and health experts ask, “how young is too young to wear high heels?”, while others like Katie Holmes Cruise find it appropriate. In a day and age where children grow up too quickly, the great debate over kid’s high heels heats up. Women wear high heels for the form enhancing features but what reason do little girls have?

Holmes defends her decision saying, “like every little girl, she loves my high heels. They are actually ballroom dancing shoes for kids. I found them for her and she loves them”. Not only does she love them but they make great press for a celebrity family — by age 5 Suri is already a style icon.

Moderation is key in this debate, which Holmes understands by allowing her daughter to wear them “on special occasions”… for god sakes she’s not wearing them to the park!

You decide: Cute or Creepy?

Brand of the Day: Kickers 30% Off

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

kickers

Black Friday: CHECK. Cyber Monday: CHECK. Now, time to get back to the Brand of the Day 30% off sales, starting today with Kickers. Women, men, AND kids rejoice because the rustic chic boots and sandals you’ve been eyeing are on sale starting today until Dec 6th.

One year prior to their foundation in 1970, founder Daniel Raufast came across a poster of the world famous show “Hair” and was intrigued by the featured youth. Noting that the jean-clad people on the poster were pictured barefoot, Daniel decided it was time to create footwear for the jean-wearer. In other words, Daniel sought out to create a style of shoes compatible with denim. Designer Jacques Chevallereau created the first “jean boot” for Kickers, ensuring the new style was the perfect companion for denim-centered looks. The new scheme became so successfully that Kickers’ productions numbers soared form 300 to 12,000 in just one month. Four years later, Raufast founded Kickers, and today, the brand can be found at retail stores in over 70 countries (including DNA Footwear!).

Grab your pocketbook because these hot sellers won’t last long at these prices!

Nothing is cuter than your shoes in mini version, especially when they are Timberland boots. While Timberland boots were originally created for blue collar workers and your tiny ones aren’t exactly the 9-5 type, playing in the sandbox can be tough work!

We previously featured Timberland on the blog but since these boots are so popular and fly off our shelves we figured why not give it a second go around?!  You’ll be ready to romp around with your little one AND rake the leaf clustered lawn with the Woodbury 93104 Boot and the mini you will be even more stylish in the Crossing Roll-Top Boot in Dark Brown or Wheat .

Keep warm this winter with waterproof Timberland boots, insulated with fleece for extra protection.

Vans has joined forces with The Magic Store and W!LDBRAIN Entertainment for a Vans and Yo Gabba Gabba! collection. Yo Gabba Gabba! ranks as one of the most popular series on television and stage, with a broad appeal among preschoolers, parents, teens and adults and now these energetic characters are popping off the screen and onto your tots toes!

Available in time for the holidays, the shoes come in Vans’  Classic Slip-On and Sk8-Hi Deconstruct styles for both boys and girls (sizes 10.5-4) and toddlers (sizes 4-10). The collection includes eight different versions, with each character represented on their own shoe, bringing the characters to life.

The popular kids show originally premiered on Nickelodeon in August 2007 and it was not long before it became a sensational hit.

Thanks to this addicting website, we came across this little nugget (Definition: Cute little kid who you could squeeze until he/she explodes) all bundled up for cooler temperatures. It is suprising how much this little one looks like a full grown adult, perfectly “casually” posing for the camera in plaid pants, denim button up, over-sized felt hat, scarf, and heavy-duty “I mean business” boots.

Introduce your child to the wonders that are Timberland: the first and only producer of truly waterproof leather boot. Despite their success in pop culture, Timberland’s standards for quality boots have only continue to rise and they have continue to surpass them. Seasonally showing new collections of new and improved boots and shoes, Timberland styles always feature their signature waterproof technologies as well as top quality leathers.

Your child is sure to have more playdates than Suri cruise in these Timberland boots!

Palladium

Monday is usually ‘Mommy & Me’ Monday but today, we thought we’d give the dads out there a shout out. Little girls are not the only ones that want to show up to the playground in style, boys want in on the style secrets too.

Add grunge and manly edge with Palladium — a company that did not start off as a shoe company and was in fact a tire manufacturer. What’s manlier than an aviation industry manufacturer?! Palladium footwear is often used in expeditions to Africa and different mountains around the world but your little men can use them to romp around the jungle gym instead.

Palladium boots have been feature in publications like GQ and Elle and now we bring them straight to all the dads and their future GQ model sons.
