Introducing the Daya by Zendaya Spring 2016 Footwear Collection

We have another fabulous diva entering the shoe game. The adorable Zendaya, actress, singer, and dancer, who you (or most likely your children) will recognize from the Disney Channel, and her fashion-forward locks at this year’s Oscars, has teamed up with footwear manufacturer and distributor, Titan Industries Inc. to create her own footwear collection, Daya by Zendaya. The fun and colorful footwear collection, set to make its retail debut in Spring 2016, boasts statement heels, modern flats, and a go-to high top sneaker, that is said to embody the perfect balance between ‘Sex Appeal’ and ‘Sporty Lux’, without disrupting your budget. Expect to see bold colors (we love the cobalt blue and turquoise heels with fringe), metallics, and neutral tones, intricate details such as cutouts, mesh inserts, and bold hardware in this balanced collection.
This new venture fulfills a dream for the 18-yr old recent graduate, who along with her fashion stylist Law Roach, wanted to create shoes that embodied Zendaya’s edgy fashion style. Daya by Zendaya promises to have something for all of her fans and of course, shoe lovers. “I’m extremely excited for the official launch of Daya next spring,” says Zendaya. “I really appreciate the girls who support me, and I want my shoes to be a way for me to give something back to them. Whether you’re a girly girl or a Tom Boy I promise – I got you covered!!! I want to also thank Titan Industries for helping my dream come true.”


The collection hits the contemporary price point, with prices ranging from $125.00-$175.00. We’ve already added several styles to our wishlist. For us, shoes have always been the way to our heart and we couldn’t agree more with the following statement:“I know everyone says that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but I truly believe that shoes are,” adds Law. “Daya definitely has something for every single one of her fans”.



The Daya by Zendaya footwear label will certainly be in good hands with Titan Industries, who counts Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B and GX by Gwen Stefani as footwear licensees. Keep an eye out starting February 2016 for the Daya by Zendaya Footwear Collection. for more information, visit

Sorel Footwear Spring 2012 Collection & Shoe Giveaway

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Spring 2012 Collection from Sorel Footwear and to collaborate with shoe blog, Shoeography, to give two readers (one woman and one guy) the chance to each win a pair of these amazing shoes from Sorel Footwear’s 2012 Spring Collection. Shoeography has covered their women’s and men’s favorites from the collection – Lake Boot, Summer Boot and Men’s Brogue. Let’s preview the collection, shall we? For Spring 2012, Sorel Footwear wants you all to stand out, chill out, and go out (in the rain). Check out a few of the looks they have for men and women below:


My favorite shoe from the collection, this practical yet edgy boot/sandal hybrid was inspired by its winter sister, the Tivoli. It features a soft leather upper with intricate laser cutouts for a funky geometric look and cool ventilation. A leather footbed and sole conforms to your foot over time for a custom fit, while durable rubber outsole pods provide an added layer of durability so you can rock them summer after summer


New this season, this bathing shoe, inspired by bathing shoes of the early 1900s, mixes classic Plimsole details with cutout sneaker styling. The soft canvas has a sunwashed look while the vulcanized rubber outsole provides plenty of traction.


A summertime version of their 1964 Pac boot, the Summer Boot is another great boot/sandal hybrid. It starts with a soft leather upper in colors that range from wild to mild. The soft leather footbed conforms to your foot for a fit that gets more comfortable with every wearing; rubber outsole pods complete the package with durable no-slip grip.


Hand-woven leather details make this durable boot one of a kind. An EVA midsole provides lightweight cushioning, while a molded rubber provides plenty of traction should the going get slippery. Originally worn by military officers in the 1950s who favored them for desert wear, this durable boot continues to defy the sands of time. Both you and the man in your life will love him in these – and they go up to size 15.


Any man will look like a perfect gentleman in this modern Brogue. It can be worn with or without the leather laces (included). The clean silhouette comes in leather or suede, both of which only get better as they’re broken in. Sharp details include a leather lining and footbed and a leather outsole with rubber traction pods. These go up to size 13. Take a look at some more of their spring collection below:
