Hirica: Natural, Understated Beauty

Jun 19th 2019

Hirica has been creating stylish shoes for women with a heightened focus on comfort and innovation since 1904. Exclusively made in Saint-Vincent de Tyrosse, France,—a historical center of the French footwear industry—their silhouettes are designed and manufactured from start to finish by in-house artisans using traditional techniques. Their ability to adapt to the evolving demands of generations of women and ever-changing trends has allowed them to emerge as a leader in shoemaking. The brand has endured due to its dedication to “uncompromising quality” matched by a meticulous eye for detail. This philosophy guarantees the modern woman styles that complement her daily life wherever she resides.

Hirica has redefined everyday footwear by taking an innovative approach to foot health. Their shoe-making artisans are well-versed in biomechanics, or simply, the science of the way we move. Each shoe conceals cushioning technology within the insole, so you can trust it to hug your arch like a natural footprint. This also effectively alleviates pain on the heel and at the ball of the foot to keep you moving throughout the day. Ergonomic rubber is utilized for the outsoles. This component works in tandem with the footbed to create a more natural underfoot platform, following the foot’s intuition and optimizing flexion for extended walking and standing.

Comfort with a French allure, the brand’s aesthetic is driven by striking minimalism and color. Their ethos mirrors the everyday woman’s style personality, which constitutes undeniable confidence, maturity, and effortless execution. Silhouettes with clean lines are shaped by high-quality leathers and suedes mixed with synthetic materials. Playful detailing juxtapose the otherwise simple templates. For example, the Lagon puts a spin on summer footwear. The suede upper is perforated to promote 360 degrees of breathability, keeping the foot cool and dry during warmer days. It sports a crushable heel counter for quick and easy entry. Its curved, one-piece sole mimics the shape of the foot so you can go from running errands to playtime.

Getting the distinctive look of French fashion enthusiasts is easy with Hirica. The brand’s fancy footwork complement myriad garment choices. A typical Parisienne dresses for the weekend by combining feminine accessories with the more relaxed options in her closet. Copy her style by choosing a nice t-shirt, culotte jeans, and subtle jewelry additions for a Sunday morning trip to the market. Hirica breaks the rules just as a Parisian woman does. Their bright sandals and flats will add a pop of color to your French-inspired summer outfits.
