We were honored to be approached by Sarah Flint luxury shoes to be brand ambassadors. We are always researching new brands and are happy to share those that align with our values and will work well for our clients and readers. We’ll take an opportunity to share with you why we are avid supporters of this brand and would encourage you to take a look as well if you haven’t already.
It’s been fascinating to learn about this ambitious female founder who from an early age loved shoes and while growing up, shopped in boutiques with her grandmother who was living in Paris. Her experience working at a luxury boutique throughout high school and into college while then attending Parsons and FIT, led to her desire to focus on shoes and further her education at a leather goods school in Milan. She was able to form relationships with artisans in a family-owned Italian factory that created Manolo Blahnik & Oscar de la Renta and launch her brand at age 25!
Now 8 years later her successful brand utilizes direct-to-consumer marketing to keep prices lower than competing designer shoe labels. She has also received financial backing from Cindy Crawford and loyalty from celebrities Amal Clooney, Meghan Markle, Karlie Kloss, Serena Williams, Gayle King, Lady GaGa Kate Hudson, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Jane Fonda to name a few.
In her words: “I started Sarah Flint to bring women footwear that is classically elegant on the outside and packed with innovative, comfort-driven design on the inside. Women today have places to go and I want my shoes to help them get there.”
“Comfort-driven design” from the above quote from Sarah, definitely caught our attention since the majority of our clients and women we talk to have what we call “fussy feet.” With that in mind, what could be better than a shoe crafted with comfort at the core of the design.
Mary chose a best seller- the perfect block sandal 60 because she needed a sandal that was versatile enough for dressy events but could also be worn with more casual looks. The padded footbed and arch support are qualities that are definitely noticeable upon first try and have been so comfortable to wear on each occasion. Here are two ways she has styled them:
Jill chose the Mirjana Wedge 80 in saddle (they are also available in gold and petal). The wedge is perfect for her on-the-go style and she was looking for a pair of sandals that are versatile enough to wear with everything from denim to dresses.
Recently, Jill had a day where she met a friend for lunch and then headed to an outdoor concert in the evening. With a quick outfit switch, the Mirjana Wedge fit the bill for both outings and elevated her outfit selections.
While Jill has the taller version of the Mirjana Wedge, they are also available in a shorter height. For her next pair, Jill is eyeing up the Rosie flats! They’ll fill the void in her shoe capsule for the transition to cooler weather.
As we look toward fall, here are the other styles that we will be excited to try!
Sarah Flint shoes are what we refer to as an "investment shoe". You may question whether or not it's worth it to pay up for a pair of shoes or boots. The guidance we give our clients and followers is this:
1. Consider the cost per wear
If you will wear the shoes or boots on a multitude of occasions with a wide variety of different ensembles, it's definitely worth spending more for excellent quality and style.
2. Consider quality and craftsmanship
As we've stated above, Sarah Flint is a luxury brand. These shoes are hand-crafted with the same high-end materials and in the same factories where many well-known designer brands are crafted at a considerably higher cost. Because Sarah Flint is a direct-to-consumer brand, the price tag reflects a lower price tag than if they were sold in retail stores.
3. Consider the comfort
We had to see it ourselves to believe it. Sarah Flint shoes really do deliver when it comes to an upscale shoe designed to be the ultimate experience in comfort.
