New Arche Fall Boots

October 09 2018 03:30 PM

The fall season is all about color and transition, from the changing world around us to our wardrobes. Inspired by the visual change in the environment, fashion designers play around with rich, jewel tones and interpret them on the body in cozy knits, longline dresses, and luxurious patterns for their collections. One way they set the tone for the season is with the footwear they send strutting down the runway.


This autumn, they layered embellishments upon embroidery, loaded up on metallics for maximum glitz, and went crazy with motifs from the romanticism era. As much as fall is about textural and color palette experimentation, it’s also about comfort. Bracing yourself against sharp winds and cool temperatures is no mean feat, and every girl wants to do so stylishly. We looked to the Arche footwear brand for this year’s direction. They blended all of our needs and wildest desires seamlessly to create everyday boots in innovative designs using top of the line materials.

Arche Patcha in purple

We at Hanig’s are excited to introduce the Arche fall boot lineup with three new silhouettes, the Cynqua, Pulman, and PatchaCynqua combines multiple finishes with a color-block nubuck suede upper and a two-tone metallic cap toe and counter. The rounded cone heel provides stability and just enough height to elongate the leg in pants or skirts. It zips at the side for a secure fit. The Pulman in jet black is an amazing everyday bootie for walking and running errands. We love the curved lines of the outsole with its tactile detailing you can trust on any surface. The scalloped throat sits just under the ankle and is flanked by two elasticized side panels that expand for easy slip-on wear. The Patcha in eggplant purple is the crown jewel of this new collection with its shock-absorbent wedge heel, ultra-cool saw-edge sole, and offset zipper that runs from the toe upwards.

Arche Cynqua

Enter the new season with the eclectic Arche collection! Be daring in a menswear-inspired overcoat, a pair of metallic leather pants, and a mock neck bodysuit with the Cynqua boot for an afternoon of wandering through a new gallery opening. For Patcha, we recommend pairing it with an embroidered sweatshirt, fitted pants, and a bauble necklace for a youthful look to get you motivated on Monday. The Pulman shoe is perfect with jersey knit leggings and a shift dress to lounge in around the house on the weekend. With flexible soles and uppers that fit and move naturally with you, this fall collection is essential to building your autumn shoe rotation.

​Pomme D’or, The All-Black Everything Collection

October 03 2018 04:48 PM

Dressing in all black has always been considered a sort of visual protest. When a girl owns an all-black wardrobe or shows up to the party cloaked in nothing but black, it’s viewed as her way of rebelling against stereotypical feminine colors due to the mystery, masculinity, and seriousness associated with this dark hue. We like to think of black in a less harsh way and as unifying because no other choice can be wholly unisex and appropriate to wear at just about any occasion or event. Whether your closet is already monochrome or you’re just looking to update it in the spectrum’s sleekest tone, we’ve curated a collection of black boot and pump styles to become the basis of your wardrobe from Pomme D’or.

Pomme D’or is known for its prim embellishments, clean lines, and luxe materials. For the autumn season, they went a bit off track to give us a set of ultra-chic silhouettes that speak to our bad-girl side. Rendered in nappa leather using their cutting-edge Bologna process that softens the material, Pomme D’or’s new pointed-toe options are must-have essentials. The 4423 is a stunning ankle bootie perfect for long days calling the shots at the office. It features a split vamp secured with a tonal button and a curved low heel. The 4424 pump stands out with structural ruching. The 4436 bootie is subtly detailed with an overlapped seam and a shining side zipper. Finally, the 6846 style offers major cool-girl aesthetic with a V’d throat, tapered heel, and a side zip closure.

Pomme Dor Shoes

Pomme D’or’s new selection of tone-on-tone black footwear covers your outfit needs for any day of the week. We love the 4424 pump with a sleeveless crepe sheath dress and a printed scarf tied around the neck for the office. Switch out the dress for an oversize blouse and cigarette jeans for off-duty drinks at your favorite bar. The 6846 bootie is a must for the weekend. Take a walk on the wild side with a leopard print top, motorcycle jacket, and a studded clutch to hang out with your best gals on the weekend. The 4436 is perfect for work or the weekend. This versatile option pairs well with boot-cut denim in a dark wash and a boxy t-shirt or a maxi length dress for an offbeat look. The 4423 can be teamed with a vest dress or a blouse and slacks for a special occasion dinner. From rocker-chic to sleek and minimal, these Pomme D’or styles in timeless black will take your shoe closet to new heights!

Discover the newest collection of all-black Pomme D’or boots and pumps at your nearest Hanig’s store today. You can find us in downtown Chicago on Michigan Avenue or in the suburbs of Wilmette at the Plaza Del Lago shopping center. Shop with us anywhere in the country and enjoy free UPS ground shipping with every order $99.90 or more!



​Shoe of the Week: Thierry Rabotin’s Party Oxford, Natan

September 26 2018 08:48 PM

Holiday season is undeniably the best time for fashion. There are no limits to what one can wear, and going all out to make a statement is always in vogue. From glitzy gowns to over the top makeup, we know you ladies like to do it big! For this year’s party season, we’re entertaining the idea of experimenting with men’s style. We’re thinking tailored suits, subdued colors, and simple silhouettes elevated by your favorite jewelry and elegant hairstyles.

The way to achieve this look is by starting with an amazing statement shoe, and we’ve got just the one in mind.

Coming to you is Thierry Rabotin’s Natan, a glittering lace-up Oxford shoe just in time to get you fete-ready! Natan is constructed of Italian-sourced etoile and covered in fine glitter. A tricolor combination of midnight blue, deep burgundy red, and shimmering black makes this style alluring and endlessly versatile. Additional features include a low heel, a paneled upper, and a cap toe. It’s lined with a supple nappa leather interior and is finished off with a signature contrast outsole. What makes the Natan shoe even more ideal for party season is the comfort one will experience while wearing it. Say “Goodbye” to tired, aching feet after a night of celebrating with this shoe’s sacchetto construction. The elimination of seams means that you will be dancing the night away with an individualized fit that promotes foot health. Priced at just under $600, Thierry Rabotin’s evening Oxford is an investment to last you get-togethers to come!

Thierry Rabotin Natan

Thierry Rabotin’s Natan Oxford is a must-have dress shoe alternative.

Ditch your usual pumps and high-heeled sandals to embrace this gentleman’s style at your next shindig. Create an entire borrowed-from-the-boys aesthetic with a tailored blazer and tuxedo pant with sleek hair, red lipstick, and minimal jewelry. Load up on sparkles with a sequin embellished pencil skirt and a long-sleeved off-the-shoulder blouse for a more feminine look at a dinner party. Natan even works with a pair of dressy shorts. We recommend styling them with a solid-colored high-waist short, subtly patterned hosiery, and a blouse or jacket for a showgirl look that’s all glitz and glamour for a night of dancing. Don’t plan on attending any special events or bashes? Natan can even be dressed down. Opt for a pair of slimming denim jeans or skinny leather pants and a chunky knit sweater or cool T-shirt for a chic, yet laid-back look. There are so many ways to wear this Oxford and that’s half of the fun!

Giusy: Fun for your feet

September 26 2018 08:38 PM

No woman’s shoe collection is complete without a pair that’s simply fun to wear. Too often we get caught up in the habit of buying styles that take themselves too seriously, so we think that that it’s time to put some spice back into your weekly rotation. What you need in your closet is a simple shoe that’s a little offbeat to break up your style’s monotony. We’re talking mixing and matching materials, unique silhouette cuts, and quirky embellishments. Italy’s shoe designers know how to get it right with cheerful styles that are exciting to wear and don’t compromise on the trusted quality and wearability associated with the country’s fashion heritage. We looked to our favorite designer Thierry Rabotin for the perfect pair that encompasses all of these attributes.

We at Hanig’s are excited to introduce you to the Giusy! Giusy is a youthful ankle bootie in black dyed suede. Highlights include a trendy, neoprene sock-like insert that peeks out at the split vamp and throat, an oversized silver-tone button with an elastic loop stretched across the quarter and a signature sacchetto construction for a more natural and sleek fit. This seam-free shoe also features a roomy, round toe, a contrasting midsole, and a lightweight yet durable outsole. This stylish bootie is made for walkin’ with its Poron Comfort interior cushion that supports foot wellness and keeps you on your toes all day long. This proprietary technology can be found in most of Thierry Rabotin’s casual styles. The breathable composition flexes and compresses to deliver pressure relief and long-term performance—and at an affordable price of $545, Giusy doesn’t break the bank.

Giusy Bootie from Thierry Rabotin

We love that the minimalist Giusy ankle bootie can be worn in both the fall and spring seasons. Our style experts recommend wearing it with slim-legged pants or leggings and a tunic for a blissful day of grocery shopping and running errands. Hang out on your back porch with friends in an embroidered sweater dress layered under an anorak jacket to tone it down. Americana-inspired checks and plaids are huge this year. We like the idea of sporting Giusy with a geometric patterned dress over a blouse with balloon sleeves. Head-to-toe leather ensembles are back in vogue, as well. Pull on a cashmere sweater with suede bottoms and a suede cape for a daring look that will make you stand out anywhere. As you can see, there are so many ways to style Thierry Rabotin’s Giusy with its versatile simplicity and timeless color, making it a fashionably clever choice for your unique sense of style.

Discover Giusy and the rest of the incredible Thierry Rabotin selection at your nearest Hanig’s store today. You can find us at 1515 N. Sheridan Road in suburban Wilmette or downtown on Michigan Avenue and Delaware Place in bustling Chicago.

The Gentleman’s Essential Oxford with Samuel Hubbard

September 22 2018 07:25 AM

Every man needs a go-to shoe in his closet. Whether you’re enjoying a glass of red wine on your favorite rooftop bar on a Friday night or getting ready for a work conference, a classic shoe is a must-have style companion. The Oxford shoe has been man’s best friend for at least two centuries. Originally designed for only formal wear, the Oxford has evolved from its conservative beginnings to stand on its own as a viable option for everyday wear. This otherwise simple silhouette is defined by the cut and details of the upper. From “whole-cut” construction to wingtips, the subtle touches found on this style can punctuate any look. We at Hanig’s know that the most important factor to you is finding a shoe that’s comfortable and refined, so we went on the hunt for the perfect men’s oxford to add to your designer shoe collection.

Coming to you is Samuel Hubbard’s Highlander. The Highlander is a simple Oxford with a pebbled leather construction. Available in two neutral colors, timeless black and dark brown, it features a closed lacing system with ten tonal eyelets, a low heel, and a contrasting welt at the midsole. This spiffy style is finished with a supportive synthetic sole brought to you by Vibram. The Italian-based manufacturer is dedicated to improving the wearability and longevity of our favorite shoes. Vibram technology is specially engineered to provide performance-driven outsoles that are durable and lightweight with non-slip traction. The shock absorbency in every Vibram sole cleverly conserves energy, as well as redirects, impact evenly across the foot for ultimate comfort. The impressive functionality of the Highlander is just the tip of the iceberg, though.

Samuel Hubbard Highlander Black Pebbled Shoe

This Oxford shoe is just as stylish as it is practical. From morning meetings to evening commuting, this shoe is a versatile essential. Pair the brown with navy blue slacks, a matching brown belt, a tartan plaid blazer, and contrast patterned socks for work. Meeting up with your best buds after work? Ditch your suit for straight-legged corduroy pants teamed with a short-sleeved polo shirt, braided leather wraparound bracelets, and your favorite sports watch to create a laidback look that oozes coolness. Highlander is a must to add to your suitcase on your next getaway, too. Don’t forget to include this oxford in your itinerary as you’ll save room in your suitcase with either color option pairing well with everything from neutral prints to textured solids. No matter the occasion or the outfit you choose, this oxford elevates your style and individuality.
