Devotte isn't exactly new on our radar, but we find ourselves tickled season after season by their unique footwear. As comfortable as they are lovely, Devotte shoes are the perfect summer accoutrement for the low-maintenance girl who needs her shoes to actually perform, i.e. navigate urban sidewalks without pain or fear of falling, not hamper her Olympian efforts to sprint towards a just-departing train, and on occasion, be able to furiously pedal on a bicycle. After all that frenzied activity, they should also be able to take her to a barbecue later that evening, where she can rest those pretty feet and let everyone marvel at her effortless elan. They're like the high-fashion equivalent of Easy Spirit pumps for the younger, more fashionable set, but don't tell anyone we said that. Our savvy Network partners seem to be in on it, too. Fashion Indie reports on Devotte's Helena Warrior flats, designed for LA favorite, Satine Boutique, and Shoeblog rounds up her favorite Spring/Summer styles from the label, bringing us this pithy quote from designer Nancy Kim:
"I understand the lifestyle of the cosmopolitan woman. I am born and bred NYC; I know the importance of stylish shoes that are still comfortable. These can be worn day to night, like your favorite jeans."
That's music to our ears, and our tired, aching feet.
