This is my first pair of French Soles - soft, suede pirouettes in black.
This style has since been phased out, but was revived as the India. I've had them for almost a decade now, but I
- first shared them in the blog in 2006
- influenced my friend Conci to buy a pair in red by 2007
- wrote about it's history + a review on it, swearing by how comfortable they are, in 2008
- talked about sizing and styles for a reader who was asking for advice,
- waxed sentimental on how I could not bear to throw this pair away when it became too battered in 2009,
you could probably say I am the longest reigning, biggest French Sole fan this side of town. I really do love my pairs.
I bought them not because Princess Diana wore them:
And I sure as hell wore French Soles way before these young girls did!
Many years ago, I made my sister go to Sloane Square for my French Sole Fix because I was not compromising on shape, style, quality and comfort when it comes to my ballerina flats. Really, I don't need to convince you on why you should buy a pair. Or ten. I have written about it extensively here in the blog for years. But here's an extra push on why you can and should.
Because French Sole opened its first store on Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig!
Now if that doesn't make you want to stand up and head for the door right this minute, I don't know what will! I am kind of itching for those embroidered Heffners actually!
