​What’s Trending: Thierry Rabotin’s Barton

Apr 1st 2019

Boost your wardrobe with an essential sandal.

Spring and summer pose the perfect opportunities to experiment with one’s personal style, and we believe in starting from the bottom-up. The key is to choose smart staples that mix and match well with your favorite pieces in your seasonal wardrobe. The strappy sandal remains on trend as our go-to shoe for its minimalism and versatility during this time of the year. Year after year, Italian designers wow us with eye-catching details in striking footwear silhouettes, inspiring us to refresh our wardrobes. Thierry Rabotin has yet again re-imagined this warm-weather essential with the Barton. Barton puts a contemporary spin on the classic slingback sandal through avant-garde design lines and fashion-forward finishes without compromising on the comfort you know and love via a heritage sacchetto technique.

Available exclusively at Hanig’s for $495, Thierry Rabotin’s Barton has arrived in three all-new looks. Embrace your animal instincts in the Beige Africa and Navy Blue versions printed with a distinctive snakeskin-inspired motif, or go for the elegant Black Shine option finished in a glossy patent leather. Reminiscent of chunky ‘90s styles, this open-toe sandal features a simple multi-strap upper construction; one across the forefoot, an adjustable mid-foot band with a Velcro closure, and a hook-and-loop heel strap accented by gunmetal hardware. The cutout rubber platform sole, with its retro block heel, is stationed below a cradled leather insole that cushions the underfoot with light padding for moderate arch support and added durability. This slightly expanded base stabilizes the foot and ankle for all-day wear you can feel confident in. Metallic logo stamps on the interior authenticate the high-fashion aesthetic.

The looks you can create with the Barton sandal are endless. From jeans and skirts; to dresses and shorts, this shoe is not a one-trick pony in the slightest. Let your hair down at a music festival in the Beige Africa option paired with an off-the-shoulder midi dress in a contrasting print and a studded bucket bag for a free-spirited look. Opt for a poplin cotton blouse embellished with bouncy ruffles, distressed denim shorts, and a floppy hat with the Navy Blue version at a rooftop restaurant on a hot day. The Black Shine variant exudes vintage chic teamed up with a knit polo shirt and matching bottoms. For chillier days, embrace your quirky side in a V-neck sweater tucked into a pair of cropped jeans frayed at the hem with patterned socks.
