Birkenstock Time

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 27 July 2014

You've probably seen the resurgence of the Birkenstock and pool sliders amongst female bloggers and the world's most stylish. We're big fans at Mr Shoes HQ - they're an easy way to add style and quirk to a plain outfit, plus they're super comfy and ideal for summer. We've got a big selection at Mr Shoes for you to choose from, and here we share our fave men's pair and the ways in which you can style them.

The MENS BIRKENSTOCK ARIZONA SANDALS feature two buckled straps and are a classic way to wear Birkenstocks. And you don't need to have any qualms about styling them either. They're merely wearable sandals - pair them with cargo shorts à la Leonardo DiCaprio for a casual, daytime look.

Alternatively, you could style them with slouchy, tapered trousers, whether they're jeans or chinos, for a trendy aesthetic. And if you roll up your trousers, then even better. Accompanied with a plain T-shirt or a checked shirt, you're sure to tick every stylish box.

Slip-On Style

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 27 July 2014

Casual footwear is definitely taking centre stage right now. Though we're obviously major fans of high heels and dressy shoes, it's pleasing news for our day to day lives. There are days when all we want to wear is a pair of skinny jeans and a loose-fitting Breton top and, luckily, we can supply you with the perfect finishing touch for such an outfit - a pair of fashion slip-ons.

Slip-on canvas shoes are everywhere right now, and you'd be a fool to miss out on the action. Here are three top-notch pairs to take your fancy. We've got the ORA LEOPARD PRINT CANVAS SKATE SHOES, which will provide a feline touch to any outfit. Featuring an animal skin-like texture, the PARIS CAUSAL SKATE PUMP SHOES are another fab pair in black.

Alternatively, there are the POPS CASUAL FLAT SKATE SHOES. These petrol blue pumps will add a spot of intrigue to any casual ensemble.

Leopard Print Love

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 20 July 2014

Leopard print sashayed down the autumn/winter 2014-15 runways and we couldn’t be more pleased. It was particularly favourable at Chloé, Céline and Givenchy, where the bold feline print was the centre of attention and domineering on numerous outfits. So it’s best to gear up your shoedrobe with plenty of leopard print in time for the new season.

Our favourite feline pairs include the COCO SKY HIGH KILLER HEELS – a pair of go-to stilettos – and the REEREE CHUNKY LACE UP BOOTS, which are all kinds of fashionable. Their chunky black heel and lace-up detailing contrast with the soft animal print beautifully.

We’ve also got the wonderful JOLI FLATFORM PUMPS, which provide the perfect cutesy touch to a bevy of ensembles. If you’d like to start incorporating leopard print into your wardrobe this summer, you’ll also love the SUMMER CHUNKY WEDGE ESPADRILLE; featuring a high cork wedge and thick ankle strap, these wedges are to die for.

Hello Havaianas!

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 13 July 2014

Though the weather has been a bit hit and miss lately, we’re still pumped for summer and are revelling in the blissfully hot days. Us ladies are wearing our favourite sandals every single day to make the most of it and for you guys, we recommend a pair of Havaianas flip flops.

Not only are they the coolest flip flops around, but they add a tropical touch to any of your daily get-ups – whether you’re opting for a casual shirt and jeans combo or some super short shorts and a vest top, having a pair of Havaianas in your armour is nothing but a good move.

We’ve also got a range of colours for you to choose from – opt for goes-with-everything black, fresh white, cool navy blue, cream, bright turquoise or pale blue. And at just £19.99, it’ll be the wisest money you spend all summer.

Just don’t wear them with socks, okay?

Striped Summer Espadrilles

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 13 July 2014

New to Mr Shoes are the fantastic SOL STRIPED SUMMER ESPADRILLES, which are available in four colourways: turquoise, pink, orange and black, though each possess a bevy of colours to offer a strong, summery feel.

Easy to style and super comfortable for the season ahead, these just-in striped espadrilles should be the latest addition to your shoedrobe. And, though we’re not quite sure you’ll believe your ears, they’re just £9.99 – what could be better?

The best way to style them for spring/summer 2014 is with a preppy American angle – think denim shorts, plain white T-shirts, mini skirts, sporty style jackets and loose, wavy hair. They look especially good with bare, sun-kissed legs, so enjoy them to the max this summer. In fact, why not get them in every colour available as they’re such a bargain?

Slide On Over

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 06 July 2014

Slide on over, slide on over babyyy. Christina Aguilera's old school hit has had a makeover at Mr Shoes HQ - we're mega in love with pool sliders, if that wasn't already clear, so it seemed like a necessary update. No matter what you decide to wear a pair of pool sliders with, chances are you'll look bloody fantastic.

New in at Mr Shoes are the glorious GEMMA CLEATED POOL SLIDES SANDALS, which are available in black and white or all-over white. Combining the highly raved about pool slider style, cleated soles and monochrome, these summer shoes hit three trends on the head - what's not to love?

And we're taking inspiration from Fash N Chips blogger Christine on how to style them. Doesn't she wear pool sliders in numerously wonderful ways? Take her fashion cue and pair them with all things monochrome - we especially love the below look featuring dropped hem black dress, oversized black handbag and black sunnies. Nailed it.

Get The Cowboy Look For Less

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 06 July 2014

Though there's a heavy focus on sandals right now, we're still smitten with the stylish cowboy boot. Never going out of fashion, cowboy boots are ideal footwear for all the seasons, and we especially love them in summer with bare legs and an easy breezy outfit. Right now, our fantastic WRANGLER WESTERN ANKLE BOOTS have a massive saving of £24, making them just £55.99 - incredible or what?

Available in black, brown and red, they're a pair of boots you'll want to wear again and again. And you can fling them on knowing you'll look stylish when you walk out the door. As for the rest of your daily ensembles, we're looking to boot queen Kate Bosworth for inspiration. The 31 year-old actress regularly sports a bohemian look, choosing cowboy-style boots to complement the rest of her outfits.

Midi dresses and denim shorts work particularly well, but we also love pairing ours with mini crochet dresses, longline blazers or shirt dresses.

Hello Holographic

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 28 June 2014

Forget metallic, the new reflective trend to take notice of is a holographic finish. Spearheaded by Rita Ora a couple of years ago, the more extreme form of silver looks fantastic when just a smidgen is used in your outfits – think clutch bags, a mini skirt or jewellery. And you can’t beat holographic shoes either.

We’ve got a variety of styles for you to choose from. Firstly, our COSMO HOLOGRAPHIC CLEATED SANDALS are epic. Full stop. With multiple straps and a block black heel, these shining shoes are so on-trend for 2014. Wear them with anything and everything, from midi dresses to jeans to high-waisted shorts.

Pool sliders are another key trend this summer, so the STEPH CLEATED SOLE POOL SLIDES are a great way to knock out two key looks in one. Wear these with a monochrome outfit on holiday, and all eyes will be on you.

For a totally different aesthetic, opt for our PARIS CASUAL SKATE PUMP SHOES. These would look fantastic with a pair of skinny jeans.

Trending: Men’s Boat Shoes

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 21 June 2014

If you want to look as cool as a cucumber this summer, wear a pair of Chatham Marine boat shoes. You’ll look like you’ve just stepped off a very wonderful yacht – and what better way to style yourself this season? We’re obsessed with four particular styles – take a look-see…

The CHATHAM MARINE COMMODORE BOAT SHOES are made from soft leather and exude a traditional boat shoe style. The blue and brown combination ensures they go with everything, so your summer shoes are sorted.  Alternatively, opt for the all-over brown – how fantastic would they look with a pair of white shorts?

We’ve also got the CHATHAM MARINE STARBOARD BOAT SHOES. Featuring a suede leather exterior, they’re a mighty fine choice. Choose from a three-colour combination (burgundy, navy and taupe) or all-over burgundy, then wear them with above-the-knee shorts, a white shirt and a summery hat for instant style.

Boot Up

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 19 June 2014

Though we’re the first to admit to wearing sandals and flip flops at every opportune moment over the last few weeks, our favourite boots are far from being neglected. This time of year is perfect for pairing floaty smock dresses with a kick-ass pair of ankle boots and bare legs, so here we share our top five pairs for the months ahead.

Our ROCKET CHUNKY CLEATED CHELSEA BOOTS are bang on-trend. Featuring a must-have cleated sole and tough exterior, these boots transition beautifully from day to night. For a different look but still in black, the NAOMI CHUNKY CLEATED SOLE BOOTS offer a more summery finish with cut-out detailing.

If you’re a fan of boots that reveal a bit of skin, you’ll also love our SAINT CUT OUT POINTED ANKLE BOOTS, which look totally lovely in a nude colouring. There’s also the ZETA WOODEN SOLED ZIP ANKLE BOOTS; available in three colourways, these boots turn the traditional Chelsea boot on its head.

For a totally different but equally trendy aesthetic, check out our CLAUDETTE CHUNKY LACE UP ANKLE BOOTS. Inspired by the desert boot, these would look fab with a pair high-waisted denim shorts at your favourite festival.

The Fine Point

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 16 June 2014

This past week saw plenty of inspiring celebrity looks and, at Mr Shoes HQ, we're revelling over the sheer amount of pointed heels on display - it's certainly the only choice for a night on the town right now. Rita Ora was spotted on Friday night in LA in a wonderfully sexy black outfit, and her pointed black heels only added to her femininity.

At the Guys' Choice Awards 2014, actress Olivia Munn teamed a dark green dress with metallic pointed heels, while Rosario Dawson coordinated hers with the light blue accent on her dress. Also in attendance was Jaime King who looked almost other-wordly with a pair of shiny silver pointed heels.
Smash actress Katharine McPhee looked stunning at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball 2014 on Saturday night. Her all-black outfit incorporated high heels with a simple black triangle frontage - a fantastic, womanly option.


If you've got every intention of looking the part in a pair of pointed heels, you'll love the options we've got for you. Our WENDY POINTED COURT HEELS are two-tone with a flattering black front and petrol blue rear. Alternatively, the GWENDA POINTED COURT SHOES are a great choice if you want something sexy and super easy to style.

Get The Look: Metallic Block Heels

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 16 June 2014

At Mr Shoes, we're all about achieving a designer look but at an absolute fraction of the cost. One of our favourite footwear trends for spring/summer 2014 was displayed at Herve Leger - aside from strong ankle cuffs looking super cool, we also admired the chunky metallic heels on offer. Do you want to get the look? You can with our MERCY METALLIC STRAPPY SANDALS.

Available in black or white, these on-trend sandals both feature a metallic silver base and block heel. Their overall shape is a top look this season, but the chunky heels add a wonderful touch of intrigue to the shoes. And they're so easy to style. For an on-point look, wear them with ankle grazer jeans or printed tapered trousers and a plain white T-shirt. For a more dressed-up approach, they'd look utterly amazing with a fitted cut-out dress or bodycon midi dress.

Offering a comfortable and a flattering fit, we can guarantee you'll be reaching for the MERCY METALLIC STRAPPY SANDALS again and again this summer.

Spotted: Vincent from Hollyoaks Wears Mr Shoes!

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 09 June 2014

When a pair of our shoes get ordered and delivered to Hollyoaks, palpitations of excitement run through headquarters. So you can imagine our giddiness when the lovely John Omole, who plays Vincent Elegba in the Channel 4 soap, wore a pair of our tan brogues to the National TV Awards 2014.

Don't you just love the styling too? We adore his preppy look comprising of a fitted white shirt, navy blue blazer (with a pocket square and just the one button done up, naturally) and smart stone-coloured trousers. Our shoes perfectly match his belt, making one super suave get-up indeed.

If you'd like to get John's look, take a look at our selection of men's brogues as a starting point.

Do you rate John Omole's National TV Awards look?

Trending: Pool Sliders

Posted By: Rosie Savage, 08 June 2014

Though it's been a slow-grower, the latest flat footwear trend has been seen in countless collections for spring/summer 2014. Dion Lee, Marni, Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Fashion East's Ashley Williams and Helmut Lang are just some of the designers to walk their models down the runway in pool sliders; a shoe style formerly associated with sporty types and people best avoided.

These days, pool sliders have turned from being style-less to full-on stylish and are headlining the ugly sandals trend. But don't be put off by the word 'ugly' - it just means they're not particularly feminine, and give a large dose of uber cool androgyny to your outfits.

If you'd like to get on board, we've got the ZARA BLOGGERS FOOTBED POOL SLIDES SANDALS to tickle your fancy. Priced at an impressive £9.99, they're available in black or white and would look fantastic with mom jeans, breezy summer dresses and co-ord ensembles. Heck, they even manage to look good with ankle socks - who figured?

Are you a fan of pool sliders? How will you be wearing them this summer?
