Irregular Choice – September’s Brand of the Month!

Posted By: FYFO on 09 September 2015

Individual and unique! Irregular Choice isn’t your typical footwear brand. Standing out from the crowd is part of this brand’s ethos; with an abundance of character in every shoe, we can guarantee they will become your favourite item in your wardrobe!

 

 

Founded by Dan Sullivan in 1999, Irregular Choice was created through Dan’s desire to give shoe lovers something different and distinct, something they could wear with pride. Born in London during the 70’s Dan was influenced by not only by the Punk era he grew up in, but also by working with Katherine Hamnett and Everlast. At the young age of 18 he opened his first shoe shop in Covent Garden before closing it at aged 23 to travel the world. Spending most of his time travelling in the Far East in countries such as Japan, Dan expanded his knowledge of the design and production process of footwear and allowed his vision of uniqueness and originality to grow. This philosophy has been the core of Irregular Choice for over 13 years, they refuse to conform to fashion trends or what’s popular in the industry, instead creating designs that are true to the foundations the company was built upon. With everything from character heels to ornate wood carvings and extravagant fabrics and prints, the shoes themselves almost become works of art. 

 

 

The expansion of Irregular Choice has been vast, now sold through hundreds of stockists around the world, and in five stores of its own, it is fair to say Irregular Choice have built a strong following of customers searching for that special shoe they cannot find anywhere else.

 

FYFO took to the streets of Norwich to investigate the public’s opinion on Irregular Choice shoes. For reactions to some of the Irregular Choice styles we sell on FYFO check out our video below!

 

 

 

Make sure you keep at look out for our exclusive Irregular Choice competition launching on our Facebook page on Wednesday 16th September. You could be in with a chance of winning 2 pairs of these beautiful shoes!

 



The Must-Have Midi Boot for AW15

Posted By: FYFO on 02 September 2015

This season it’s all about the midi-boot! More commonly known as the mid-calf boot, to be classified as this, the boot has to reach between 8-14 inches from the base of your foot (depending on the height and inseam of the leg). Available in a range of styles, heel heights and colours, the midi-boot works particularly well with the standout fashion trend for AW15, 70’s boho. This versatile style is perfect for pairing with skinny jeans and baggy jumper for a relaxed, casual look or with a winter dress and tights to create that statement evening outfit.

 

We have taken some of our favourite midi-boots from the Autumn/Winter 15 catwalks and shown you how you can recreate the look for a fraction of the cost! All our alternatives to the catwalk styles are available to shop on FYFO.

 

Purple Passion

Purple is set to be one of the hottest colours for AW15, however this season this hue has taken a darker, more intense shade that fits perfectly with the autumnal weather. Fly London have replicated Laurence Dacade’s Rick Quilted Nubuck boots at £695 for almost 1/6th of the price at £114.99! You can shop the Mes boot here.

Block Heels

The block heel trend carries through into Autumn/Winter but is now incorporated into the midi-boot. The statement making block heel was found all over the AW15 catwalks; Calvin Klein’s python stacked heel boot at $2,995 is one of our favourites. However, if you’re not looking to break the bank for some designer boots, Tamaris provide you with the same look for only £74.99! Shop the Tamaris 1-25572-23 mid-calf boots here.

Sandy Suede

The fabric that will send you into a frenzy this Autumn/Winter is most definitely suede! Black maybe a classic colour, but this season it’s all about those sandy tones. Burberry has incorporated this material into the must-have midi style with their Lyndhurst boots at £539.74. Almost identical to Burberry’s creation is the Coolway Nectar boots at only £49.99. Don’t miss out on this designer look for a bargain price! You can shop it on FYFO here.

Quilted Perfection

Add a bit of texture to your midi-boot by choosing a quilted style such as Aquatalia’s Bonnie boots at £471.85. Tamaris have taken this trend and created the 1-25596-23 mid-calf boots for only £55.66, and they are certainly competition to Aquatalia’s design! Shop this style on FYFO here.

Stylish studs

Want to create that cool, paired down grungy look? Then some studded midi boots are the answer! Mix some studs with straps and buckles and you’ll master that casual, biker vibe! Laurence Decade shows us how it’s done with the Baltazar boots at $1,490, but for only £33.99 Fabulous have recreated this catwalk look with the 431400802 mid-calf boots. You can get your hands on a pair here.

FYFO's Back to School Guide

Posted By: FYFO on 12 August 2015

The rush has begun to ensure you are fully prepared for the new school year. We understand that this isn't an easy task to undertake, therefore to make sure you’ve got all the essentials covered we’ve put together a checklist of the basics.

 

1. Uniform

Perhaps the most difficult thing to find is that perfect fitting school uniform. Time will be spent continually trying on multiple sizes of trousers and polo shirts until eventually the correct fit will be found! Hence why uniform deserves its place as our top essential for back to school 2015.

 

2. Functional Footwear

A sturdy, long lasting pair of shoes is always near the top of the priority list for going back to school. No matter the style or design they must be practical and comfortable for those hours spent running around the playground!

 

3. Backpack

You are always going to need a place to store all your school essentials so a spacious backpack is a must! Whether you choose a classic style or something a bit more unusual a backpack is certainly a necessity.

 

4. Pencil Case

Pens, pencils, rubbers, rulers…school stationary can sometimes be never ending! Therefore, a pencil case is vital to ensure everything is kept together and nothing goes missing.

 

5. Lunchbox

Every child needs that fuel and energy to aid their learning and get them through the school day. This is why a fully stocked lunchbox is the final important item on our checklist.

Get back to school ready this August with our Brand of the Month, Kickers!

Posted By: FYFO on 04 August 2015

As the new school year approaches the list of back to school essentials begins to grow! One of the most difficult items to find can be perfect fitting, hardwearing school shoes. This is precisely why we have chosen Kickers as our Brand of the Month for August. Fresh from their win at the Drapers Footwear Awards 2015 for best Kids Brand of the Year, Kickers make finding ideal school footwear easy. With a strong range of styles in high quality leather with the additional benefit of scuff resistant features, there isn’t much more you could ask for! 

 

 

Kickers began life in the 1970’s when a French fashion visionary named Daniel Raufast developed a new style of casual boot to wear with jeans. Kickers soon captured the interest of both fashion and music enthusiasts and grew into the unique brand that it is today.

 

Probably the most recognised style, The Kick Hi, has become iconic for Kickers. First produced in 1975, and still at the forefront of each collection, it has proved it’s dominance and durability for 30 years. Constantly being reinvented whilst staying true to its original design elements, the Kick Hi is definitely a style worth investing in.

 

 

Kickers distinctive approach to designing footwear has led to the brand gaining a reputation worldwide for high quality, classic and relaxed footwear, which has an unmissable attention to detail. Its popularity can be the result of many reasons, but perhaps it is the fact that Kickers is a brand that’s accessible to all that really sets them apart. Their appeal to multiple ages, genders and lifestyles, combined with the unrivalled comfort and style in every shoe, makes Kickers a brand that withstands passing trends, and thrives in a highly competitive market.
