Life, health, happiness, yoga, style, travel, sunshine and endless possibilities…
As a yoga teacher, I pretty much walk as much as I can between classes. More than ever, comfort is paramount, so nine times out of ten, you will find me walking around in my trainers or other comfortable shoes. I’ve recently discovered a new British/Brazilian shoe brand called Morena Morena, which makes luxury footwear with casual comfort. All Morena Morena shoes are handmade in Portugal and delivered straight to you in beautiful boxes with their own little dust bag.
The shoes are the brainchild of London School of Fashion graduate Noemy Do-Carmo. The Morena Morena co-founder and head designer has a proven high fashion pedigree having worked with the likes of Lacoste, Gucci and Louis Vuitton.
The Brazilian shoemaker conceived her flat and foldable design when she couldn’t find a chic pair of ballet slip-ons that would fit into her bag. The result is a collection that allows flexibility throughout your day, from casual to smart, stylish to comfortable, heel to flat.
I was sent the Pink Ella Square Toes shoes and I love that they were comfortable straight out of the box. As soon as I put them on they felt buttery soft, with no blisters at all after wearing them. I have been wearing them around Mykonos while I teach yoga with Helios Retreats and they are incredible, so soft and versatile – they look good with all my outfits!
Morena Morena has absolutely hit the nail on the head when it comes to blending style, sport and fashion into a comfy and practical show, which can be transported easily. The shoes are available for both men and women in a range of colours and patterns, take a look at the full collection here.
