YOGI FOOTWEAR - JOSEPH CAMERON
Yogi Footwear is now enjoying its second season on our shelves at the Concept Store. Their range of superbly crafted shoes and boots which are handmade in Portugal have gone down a storm and we've repeated on several styles (if it aint broke don't fix it!) as well as introducing some brand new options too! Join Joseph as he gives a little background and introduces the latest drop...
Clothes in the 90s were cool weren’t they? Everything was so relaxed, looking good had never been so effortless. These days you can see the 90s style coming back more and more, jeans are getting baggier again and teens are nostalgic for a time that they weren’t even alive for. That’s why we at FCL Concept Store are really excited to have some of Yogi Footwear’s newest collection. Yogis were seen on some of the biggest names of the 90s and for good reason, fans of their shoes range from Glasgow’s very own Bobby Gillespie and The Gallagher Brothers to David Beckham.
Taking inspiration from musical subcultures of the 1970s, Yogi Footwear was created in the 1990s in Portugal. Since relaunching in 2017, Yogi has created collections that pay tribute to their initial designs from the 90s, but also collections that focus on a sleeker more modern silhouette. What sets Yogi apart from their contemporaries is their negative heel, the shoe slants down towards the toes which is meant to emulate the sensation you get when you walk in sand. This heel is said to help improve your posture, so they’ll help you stand up straight and make you feel like you’re on holiday! They also pride themselves on the quality of their product, each shoe is hand stitched and made from premium leather.
We really are very excited to have some select styles from Yogi Footwear’s on our shelves at The FCL Concept Store. If you are looking for a modern silhouette, we have the Rufus, available in white or brown, or the Winstone boot if you prefer something ankle height. For those who want to try and relive the glory years and throw it back to the 90's we have the Torres Suede Chukka Boot in a Moss colourway and the Finn Shoe in Apricot, all available in store and online HERE.
