Brand Spotlight! La Plume

Go anywhere. Comfortably.

We'd like to give a warm welcome to our newest member of the Village Shoes family: La Plume! Named after the French word for feather, these light as air and superbly comfortable shoes will keep you up and on your feet all day.

So what's the secret? The cork mid-sole will mold to the unique shape of your foot with shape and wear. It'll form to the exact shape of your arch and give perfect support without an expensive custom orthotic. The cork is topped with a leather-lined, generously-cushioned footbed that not only adds additional comfort, but eases the sometimes uncomfortable break-in period of the cork. The outsole is capped with a rubberized material to make the shoes slip-resistant, and increase the durability of the cork.

We think these lovelies just scream vacation. If you're headed out to a far away place, you've probably got a lot of walking in front of you. Whether you're headed to Paris or Nebraska, when you're in a new place, you're bound to want to see the sights--museums, gardens, parks, etc. Now you don't have to worry about the inevitable foot pain at the end of the day (or trying to get your partner/friend to give you a foot rub).

These shoes are also great for those of us with pre-existing foot problems. Plantars Fasciitus, corns, bunions, or hammer toes? The padding and adjustability helps to ease pain and shift pressure points away from sensitive or painful areas. The adjustable Velcro straps also make them a great choice for people with wide or narrow feet.

Overall, La Plume sandals are an absolute treat for your feet, and we're proud to be supporting them through our shop. Come in and try a pair on!
