Classic Pumps: Elegant Ladies’ Shoes

Clarks offers elegant shoes for ladies with good taste, in comfortable, classic styles. After years of women’s shoes with closed toes being all but extinct elsewhere on the shoe-shopping landscape, Clarks Indigo and Diamond lines persist in showing more style than skin.

Classic Pumps by Clarks, for the Elegant Woman

Elegant Evening Dress

I’m wearing a diaphanous black silk blouse with abalone buttons, a Burgundy and black changeant taffeta skirt, and elegant, sensible shoes by Clarks–a perfectly respectable ensemble for a July evening. My husband once sat next to Princess Grace of Monaco at dinner, who was wearing this sort of blouse. It is strictly for evening-wear.

Indigo, My New Favourite Shoes, by Clarks

The first time I bought Clarks shoes was in the dreadfully hot summer of 1988 in Athens, when my Italian pumps with leather soles did not protect me from the burning-hot pavement, and I stopped to buy some of their thicker-soled shoes at a shop. Clarks designs have evolved, and the company now makes some of the most elegant and comfortable women’s shoes in the world. I particularly like their  Indigo and Diamond lines.~~©M-J de Mesterton
 Here is an excerpt about Indigo shoes, from Clarks:

“Great brands, like great individuals, have their own distinct personality. Indigo® design elements bring distinction and freshness to their collection without sacrificing comfort. Indigo supplies women with exactly what they are looking for – the perfect blend of comfort and style.

Indigo is fashionable. Never trendy. Classic. Never boring.

For women who take sincere delight in mixing and matching clothes and accessories to achieve a look that’s unique and expressive, Indigo is a fresh new expression of comfort.

Indigo’s designers take their inspiration from diverse sources including the streets of Paris, New York, London and Milan. For women who take sincere delight in mixing and matching clothes and accessories to achieve a look that’s unique and expressive, Indigo is a fresh new expression of comfort.”
