The label started in 1952 when Tonino Cinti who was formerly a leather and footwear agent started his own wholesale company. A year later the first branded store opened in Toscana, Bologna. In 1975 the store in Toscana was shuttered and a new one opened in the Centergross fashion district.
Over the years Cinti began to focus less on its wholesale operations which ceased operations in 1995 and more on their standalone stores. Today the company has over 50 stores, mainly in Italy.

Mrs. Coakley’s love affair with fashion began at four years old especially while growing up in Charleston, South Carolina. Also, at this time Becki started to gain an interest in creating her own designs. As a young adult Coakley did not pursue her passion for fashion but instead focused on psychology. During this time Becki continued to create shoe designs and after relocating to Denver, Colorado decided to pursue her dreams of starting her own line.
The shoes from the collection are timeless, sophisticated and eye-catching. Mrs. Coakley’s designs focus on accentuating the arch and heel of a woman’s foot. It is this focus that differentiates Becki from other designers in the marketplace combined with her drool-worthy silhouettes.
Coakley finds inspiration in creating high-fashion, unique and structurally sound shoes but the label is dedicated to her late mother who passed away three years ago. With a collection like this I am sure her mother is looking down at her with much pride.

Dacade has been in the shoe game for a number of years and by the looks of the collection is still going strong. Spring 2016 is definitely influenced by the boho-chic movement. This influence can be seen by Laurence’s use of psychedelic prints, floral prints and its staple-the gladiator boot.]]>

After watching the Ultimate Fighter I decided to do a story on Stefano’s 2016 Spring collection. Mr. Maroni is from Milan and studied finance at the London School of Economics. Stefano put his academic studies and experience working at his father’s leather goods factory to use at Bruno Magli and Ben Sherman.
Anyone with a legitimate entrepreneurial streak will not just be content working for someone else so Maroni decided to launch his eponymous line for Spring 2016. The inspiration for the label mostly comes from contemporary art and Stefano’s travels as well as his sailing exploits. In order to makes his shoes stand out bold prints, artisan finishing techniques and novel silhouettes are continuously used.
According to Mr. Maroni the African continent is one of the inspirations for 2016 Spring and this is shown by the use of lush colors and animal prints. Also, the architecture stylings of Saarinen and Calatrava can be seen in the concentric heels used on the fourth shoe in this article. I am very pleased to write about this collection and I cannot wait to see more future styles from Stefano Maroni.]]>
JF London is the brainchild of accessories designer extraordinaire Joshua Fenu. For his new line Fenu wanted a collection that merged the worlds of punk, goth and S&M. In order to do this platform booties, patent leather and boots with zippers combined with fish net designs were created.
These heels are not for those who are afraid to let out their inner wild-child or who just wants to blend in. Unique detailing, expert craftmanship and envelope-pushing silhouettes are reasons why these heels should be a part of your shoe collection.
