Samantha Blair is based in Scotland (UK) and is a blogger, a mother, a Biomedical Scientist and a lady with a fabulous style! While she maintains that she fakes her fabulousness (hence the name of her blog, Fake Fabulous), we could not disagree more.
Sam’s style is quirky, colourful and playful – exactly what fashion should be. While she writes about a range of lifestyle topics, it is her fashion style that really makes her stand out. A lover of polka dots, leopard print and bright colours, Samantha has fun with what she wears, and it shines through her blog.
While Samantha does not suffer from bunions, she has been ‘blessed’ with an agonizingly painful bunionette (aka a tailor’s bunion), which was what had got her to look at Calla Shoes initially.
Anyone who has either bunions or a bunionette knows how horrendous the pain can be. This is where Calla Shoes come in!
Samantha went for the black suede Mary Jane block heel court shoe, which features two little straps that hold the foot securely in place. The Emma shoe, as we have named it here at Calla, is handmade in Portugal, using the finest goats leather. Thanks to this, it is able to flex and provide comfort where it is needed the most!
The additional extra width an volume in the toe area of the sure and a luxury leather-lined, gently-padded insole with arch support all add up for a shoe experience that your feet are guaranteed to love.
JULY 2018 UPDATE: Samantha just can't get enough! The blogger chose Calla shoes for herself again, this time opting for one of our summer range's offerings - the Amelia sandal.
The Amelia is a playful snakeskin flat sandal, with added silver studs. The sole of this shoe is made out of authentic Portuguese cork, locally sourced by our factory in Porto. The flexible and soft leather, along with the wide toe-box, ensure that your bunions are secure and comfortable. Scroll down to see Fake Fabulous' outfit featuring the sandals!
