Metallic is one of the biggest trends in a long time to jump from the catwalk to our wardrobe.
We’ve seen it in fabrics, from red-carpet gowns to casual street wear, and even in swimwear, and now our feet are getting the precious-metals treatment.
Luckily, this is one trend that’s easy to translate into your everyday wear.
Silver and gold are already go-to colours for many women, but this season there are even more flattering metallic hues to choose from, with rose-gold and pewter shades stepping into the spotlight.
The new range of Homyped metallics offer the same high standard of comfort and health-care benefits expected from all its shoes, so check out our top tips for introducing metallic into your shoe-drobe, then you’re ready to shine, whether you’re pounding the pavements or primping for a party.
Dressed Up or Down
From casual to dressy, the Karmen is your go-to sandal, available in three colour options: black with a platinum contrast, tan and black, or a stunning rose-gold. With only a slight wedge heel, and a touch of bling, the sandals can we worn with any outfit, from casual resort wear while relaxing by the beach to a sophisticated dress when dining out in the evening. Easy entry and adjustable fastenings at the side and front of the shoe make the Karmen quick to slip on and go.
There’s nothing like slipping on a pair of casual shoes for a walk and knowing your feet will stay comfortable. The Jacinta style, though, looks smart, while still having the benefit of a custom-designed footbed that provides support and stability. The Jacinta is part of the Relax Homyped range, and is also available in black and dove-grey, with contrasting textures. The go-with-everything colours make them perfect to take on holiday. Wear them with sportswear, casual and resort wear.
Boots are made for walking, as the song lyrics go, but they’re also made for wearing with practically any outfit, and are an essential for the cooler (or wetter) months. Homyped has added three new leather boots – Jess, Gerty and Gracie – to its collection, all in traditional black or tan. Each style has a different heel height and textural interest, as well as being ‘orthotic-friendly’.
The Jess is flat boot with a casual, striding-around-town feel. The embroidered stitching, adjustable buckle and easy-entry zip is a winner in our books.
The Gerty is a great ankle boot option, with just enough heel to add a dressy touch.
The Gracie is a classic heeled boot, with easy entry and a metallic detail on the strap lending some extra elegance.
Coupling these new-style boots with your existing wardrobe will help add a touch of modernity – whether you prefer casual jeans and a top, cropped pants and blazer for a stylish look, or the ease of a dress paired with opaque tights.
Homyped introduces a new range twice a year to ensure its footwear reflects the latest styles, colours and comfort technology. But the company also maintains a core range of its most popular styles, which never go out of stock. The versatile Jamima is the latest style to make the jump to the core range, after proving a hit in 2016.
The Jamima is a cross between a closed shoe and sandal and can even look like a boot when worn under trousers. They’re a more dressed-up option than runners, but can still be worn on casual occasions, without looking over the top. The Jamima is available in black, ‘pumice’ and ‘midnight’ colours.
Style plus comfort
Footwear needs to do more than look good – who enjoys having to take off a beautiful but painful pair of shoes halfway through an outing?
You won’t have that problem with this new range of shoes from Homyped. The Australian company is known for the comfort of its footwear, which offers excellent cushioning and support in a variety of width fittings.
Offering more than just comfort, though, Homyped styles have many adjustable features so there’s bound to be a shoe for you. There are Homyped designs that offer relief for people with bunions, as well as footwear developed specifically for people with diabetes.
