Shake of those winter blues (and hat, goose-down coat and double knitted mitts and anything else that pays semblance to bulky winter-wear) because Call it Spring is in the air and boy do we L-O-V-E it. If you’re stuck somewhere between bare-foot ballerinas and thermal lined boots, CIS (as always) is here to save you from your deepest of dilemmas: how to mitigate the transition from winter to spring footwear without a) freezing your feet off like it’s nobody’s business or b) gradually yet painstakingly boiling to death. Yes, it’s a serious affliction that affects millions of people each year. Luckily for you, CIS has the cure-all solution, so step into some of our fabulously awesome yet fully functional transitional booties for spring. Yeah, we’ve got ‘em—and they’re good.
Meet the Kundera. SS14 footwear is all about geometric cut-outs and block heels. The Kundera is all that and more. Show some ankle with this bootie’s barely-there cut-out while keeping your toes tucked away as we not-so-patiently await warmer temperatures. Pair with a cuffed skinny jean for easy day-time wear or dare to bare it all (your legs, that is) in an ultra-fem skirt.
Meet the Viggo. If you’re hesitant about heels, this bootie is all those things we love about transitional footwear, just on a more level playing field. Ideal for that day about town, the Viggo is your fail-safe bootie. Keep your outfit casual and cool in boyfriend jeans and an oversized cable knit. And when the weather begins to warm—if ever—pair the Viggo with your favourite shorts for an easy and comfortable vibe.
Meet the MARIUN. As the ideal crossover between heel and flat, the Mariun is all about that edgy transitional appeal. It’s the cool girl chic vibe that makes this bootie most wearable with a plaid button-up and distressed denim. With its crisscross ankle straps and silver buckle detailing, the Mariun adds insta-coolness to just about any outfit, day or night.
Meet the BOROVSKY. This lace up bootie does it all. With its fabric upper and block heel, the Borovsky makes just about any and every outfit look effortlessly fab. Dress this bootie down with neo-grunge detailing, like an acid-wash jean jacket or a much-loved leather skirt. Night out on the town? No problem. The Borovsky can do that too. Feminine accents like lace bibs and crocheted tanks appeal to this do-it-all transitional bootie too.
