Lori's Shoes Launches an Impressive Capsule Collection

When I received an invite for the Lori's Shoes Capsule Collection Launch, my first thought was "it's about time". Lori's Shoes is by far one of the best locally owned places to shop for footwear. Spend a few minutes in the store or viewing the e-commerce site and you'll see that Lori knows her shoes.

Lori's is known for having some of the best prices (just do a little online comparison shopping to validate that fact) and exclusive designs (Lori frequently travels to Europe to strike deals with some of the best footwear designers).

Now that Lori's has conquered the shoe retail game, they are diving into shoe design business. My fellow shoe lovers can rejoice because the collection is quite impressive...and affordable! Every style was on-trend and incorporated one or more of the following: mary jane straps, platforms, color-blocking, and snakeskin.

Check it out:


Knockout (in green)

Knockout (in black)

Bamma (in grey)

Bamma (in camel)

After chatting with Lori about the collection, I was introduced to Italian shoe designer Maurizio Celin.

The Spring 2012 collection of Maurizio's shoe line, Bacio 61, was available for preview. I immediately noticed that mixing fabrics is Bacio 61's strong suit. Snakeskin with suede, raffia with leather...the combinations were done quite nicely. It was also obvious that practicality was a key component in the construction. Details like a subtle split in the platform ensures that the sole is more flexible and the shoe is more comfortable overall. Who doesn't love a brand that caters to the needs of its consumer?

Here are a few of my Bacio 61 favorites:

If you're in the city, hop over to one of the Lori's Shoes locations to check out the capsule collection in person. And for those of you outside the Chicagoland area, visit for some serious shoe shopping!*

What are your thoughts on Lori's Shoes Capsule Collection? Any favorites?

*The capsule collection runs slightly large. So, be sure to order a half size down.
