Welcome to Top Shelf, the series dedicated to the best and brightest fashion buys on the market. Watch this space to find the most worthy investments to live a stylish life.
In case you missed it, the ’90s are back in a major way. But not all versions of the throwback trend involve crop tops, chokers, and platform flip flops. One of your fave brands from back in the day has reemerged with a new look just in time for a season full of fashionable adulting.
VIA SPIGA, the beloved American footwear label that launched in 1985, is officially stepping into new, and might we add more stylish, territory. The silos of our youth have been replaced by classic, yet trend-right styles with detailing that calls to mind the brand’s Italian roots. With soft Italian leather and suede in rich tones of terracotta and deep emerald, VIA SPIGA’s newly appointed creative director, Carla De Freitas, has designed a little something for everyone in her debut season.
There is one clear standout — the AMAZING boots. Turn your attention, if you will, to the VIA SPIGA Adrinna Mid Calf Boot ($395). Ladies, these perfectly proportioned steppers manage to check all the boxes without clearing your bank account. The three-and-a-half-inch heeled, wear-everywhere buy features a cushioned insole for comfort and soft leather that fits like a glove for your feet. Choose from timeless shades like bone, desert, terracotta, or black.
“My design goal is to give working women a collection that they can come to for all their needs,” explained De Freitas. “There is a concerted effort in everything that we do toward making each pair comfortable without compromising the design and style.” Mission accomplished. Because if ’90s-era you spotted your current-day self, she would definitely be a little bit jealous.
