With Autumn in full swing, many of us are starting to realise that we don’t have the right wardrobe to cope with the changing season. At YCB magazine we don’t need too much of an excuse to go shopping, but the truth is that high-quality footwear is an absolute must in the UK, so we’ve searched high and low to find the best on offer. We’re excited to show you our favourite items from the Softinons range, and we know that they will help you strut into Autumn with your best foot forward.
Born in 2007, Softinos is a brand with a mission! They want to make you feel great about wearing shoes again. Shoes that are soft to the touch and a pleasure to wear. Yep, you’ll feel like you’re walking on clouds when you slip these on! But the best part is that along with their luxurious comfort levels, Softinos shoes come in a vast range of styles and colours to suit every outfit. From summer sandals to ballerina pumps to trainers or boots, there is a Softinos for every season, and occasion.
Every Briton needs a cosy pair of boots, and we’ve got our eye on these Brown Knee-Highs. These slouchy boots are the ultimate casual boot, with a laidback vibe perfect for pulling on in a hurry as you dash out on the morning school run. The super-soft contrasting microfibre lining adds a layer of much-needed warmth, a testament to the brand’s dedication to helping you feel snug as a bug at all times. Team with your favourite wool coat and oversized scarf to make chilly mornings feel more doable!
The slate grey, intentionally worn-in design is a welcome departure from a standard black ankle boot and adds that stylish edge to a casual outfit. We’ll be wearing ours with stonewash dungarees, striped tee and oversized mustard yellow cardigan. The pull-on style and comfy sole make them the ideal everyday boot whether you’re walking the dog or walking to the pub!
Everyone needs a smart-casual shoe. For those what-to-wear moments where you need to make a good impression but don’t want to compromise on comfort, the Silver Elasticated Ballerinas are your friend. These slip-on, stretchy pumps offer an elegant solution and long-lasting comfort. Wear with jeans, dresses or skirts and don’t forget to pick them up in red too for an extra pop of colour.
Speaking of red, we just had to mention these Crimson Zip Up Ankle Boots! As always, the microfibre lining makes for happy feet whilst the slightly cut out ankle offered room to breathe. These flat boots will never be left at home during the festive season, as they can be worn with all your favourite winter outfits such as knitted dresses, leggings or jeans.
For a more pared-down boot, we’re obsessed with these Softinos Black Wedge Ankle Boots. The exposed tan lining is a subtle detail that takes these from simple to sublime without any fuss. Perfect for those who like a preppy look, we’re thinking a crisp white shirt, dark chinos and a tweed boyfriend blazer for on-point weekend wear that have everyone asking: where did you get those boots? And with the comfiest lining and spongy sole, you can wear them all day without the fear of throbbing feet at the end of the day.
We’re so thankful that trainers have made a comeback in recent years. If you’re sick of wearing the same old baseball shoes or tired gym trainers, invest in these Lace-Ups which come in a variety of colours.
We personally can’t take our eyes off the yellow ones and know that we’ll be wearing ours with everything from culottes and jump-suits to pinafores and maxi dresses! They really do have the power to brighten up your day – and everyone around you too – with just one glance.
The typical minimalist style that Softinos do so well means that these will see you through the years as trends come and go. Combined with the brand’s unbridled craftsmanship and attention to detail there’s no doubt that these will stand the test of time.
