Dive into the ageless coastal trend with the German label.
Bound by tradition since its inception in 1922, Ganter is a German footwear brand dedicated to comfort, innovation, and fashion-forward style. Mindful techniques give way to timeless designs that complement the modern woman’s everyday lifestyle. The brand’s philosophy revolves around the belief that the foot is the foundation of the body and the “basis of our well-being.” With a special expertise gained through decades of analyzing, testing, and research, their design approach brings together trendiness and fine-tuned cushioning technology. This time around, they’ve captured all of this through a single shoe that meets at the intersection of contemporary minimalism and classic construction. Ganter’s Gabby falls in line with the fashion industry’s ongoing love of inserting nautical-inspired features into everyday casual footwear and the multicolored shoe trend for the Spring/Summer seasons.
The Gabby shoe puts a spin on the simple shape of a flat with a pattern considered synonymous with sailor apparel. This aesthetic lends a stylish expression that can be cleverly transitioned from season to season. Available at an approachable $255, it’s offered in three exciting colorways in a luxurious suede material: black, jeans blue, and neutral taupe. This slip-on’s upper boasts a notched tongue and an elasticized throat to aid quick exit and entry, and a striped two-tone maritime band stretched across the midfoot for a laceless lockdown fit. The counter is reinforced for stability and additional support. A removable cork insole is fitted into the interior, providing enhanced comfort along with a vegetable tanned leather lining. The soft rubber outsole grips with a diamond tread pattern. A signature logo stamped onto the footbed authenticates the design.
Versatility abounds in Ganter’s Gabby slip-on. From denim and shorts to skirts and even dresses, the shoe works with almost anything in your seasonal wardrobe. Have a romantic picnic in the blue pair and a gingham-print midi dress, a floppy hat, and a paneled tote bag. Own a lazy weekend in cropped leggings, a Henley top, and a baseball cap. Choose the taupe option teamed with belted seersucker Bermuda shorts, a short-sleeved t-shirt, and a cross-body bag for weekend shopping. For chillier days spent outdoors, we’re dreaming of wearing ours with a cable knit sweater, an A-line skirt cut above the knee, and wayfarer sunglasses. The black version is easily elevated with a wide-legged culotte jumpsuit and a leather backpack, or cargo pants and a popover top to keep it toned down. Whether you’re amping up the seafaring theme or retaining a sense of femininity, Ganter’s Gabby slip-on flat adds an instant confident kick to your look with ease.
