Another orange shoe? You bet. ‘Tis the season. Pumpkins, deer-hunting vests and accouterments, candy corns, caution signs, barricades, basketballs and oranges. Orange, the new black.
Think of an orange: citrusy, juicy, pulpy, plump and pasteurized – that is just the problem Taryn Rose was trying to solve for the feet she would treat. This is also how she said her feet felt in her three-inch heels after working a 14-hour day. This one-time, formally trained orthopedic-surgeon-turned-shoe-expert decided she’d seen enough in the hospital and was ready to become a ped-fashion diva. She traded her medical surgical tools for a leather tool kit. Her shoes are made by highly skilled artisans in Italy, with almost three hours of hand labor in each pair. Wow, sounds expensive. Remember, handmade shoes aren’t cheap and you should know by now that if a doctor is recommending them for purchase, you better make sure you have your insurance card as well as your credit card and two forms of ID. I am glad that she introduced a men’s line in 2003 – believe me, I’ve tried, and heels just don’t work, but these Astiares sure will.
Whether you are hunting for game or shoes, these Italian made orange beauties are the shoes for you. Made from soft, full-grain premium leather, this loafer-style shoe is perfect for dress or casual looks, with a slightly squared toe, stitched seam moc-style front, and side stitching. These shoes are “not-from-concentrate” and now on sale – the shoes of the day: ORANGE, Taryn Rose Men’s Astaire.
