Exquisite craftsmanship is not only a quality embodied by Valentino’s RTW and bags collections, but is also inherently incumbent in the stunning range of Valentino shoes as demonstrated by the Pre-SS16 collection. Featuring a selection of rockstud classics as well as amazing new apt-for-the-season pieces, Valentino Resort 16 shoes once again set a new standard for luxury shoe designers around the globe. Leading the series of new additions that the Resort 16 collection brings to the Valentino range, are the Valentino Thong Sandals. The Valentino Thong Sandal in black is the must-have sandal to take you through the season. Featuring love latch silver detail, a criss-cross ankle strap and matte leather fabrication, the statement sandals can be worn everyday to enhance a casual, work-to-play outfit. Also in the love latch theme are the Valentino caged pointy toe pumps in black/poudre. Featuring a zipper back and 8.5cm heel, these elegant shoes are the newest style to be released from the iconic Valentino House.  Moving away from the signature rockstuds, the new pumps feature eyelet studded leather straps across the foot, with four buckles. A combination of classy, bold, creative and modern, these empowering shoes are an everyday showstopper for the confident twenty-first century woman. For those loyal to the rockstud classics of prior seasons, there is a new take on the Valentino Rockstud Thong Sandal this season as well. Featuring a double ankle strap and pebbled leather, the chic sandals come in black/light cuir or light cuir/mandarin. Continuing on with the pebbled theme are the Valentino pebbled calfskin rockstud kitten heels. Featuring a tonal trim with a 6.5cm heel height, the poudre/poudre shoes are feminine and sophisticated work pieces that can easily adapt to an evening occasion. Alternatively, for an enhanced statement, there are the Valentino rockstud pebbled calfskin high heels with a tonal trim and 10cm heel height. Also in poudre/poudre, these heels add a sense of daringness, drama and boldness to any outfit. The last pieces in the pebbled calfskin series are the Valentino rockstud ballerina flats also featuring a tonal trim in poudre/poudre. For a subtle, yet statement casual look, these elegant flats are the go-to piece and are taking the fashion world by storm gaining a cult following. The signature Valentino ballerina flats also feature in the bold Noir series in smooth leather featuring a black trim. Alternatively, there are also the Valentino Rockstud Kitten Heels in Noir with the 6.5cm heel and the Valentino Rockstud High Heels in Noir with the 10cm heel, both in smooth leather with a black trim, demonstrating Valentino’s ability to transcend classic styles through stories, themes and collections, to cater to every woman’s fashion tastes. The most unique piece of the collection is, however, the Valentino Noir Rockstud open toe ankle boot featuring a rock-studded double strap around the ankle and a 10cm heel height. The pinnacle of empowerment and modernity, this chic boot is a wardrobe staple this season. A variation of the coveted Valentino Rockstud Thong Sandal also appears in the noir story, featuring a toe strap and three-ankle straps. Its more elaborate counterpart is the Valentino Noir Rockstud Gladiator Sandal featuring leather lace-up ties, as seen on Vogue.com.au, in Harper’s Bazaar UK and RUSSH magazine. The gladiator style also features in Valentino Rockstud Gladiator Heel style, which is a lace-up, open toe piece with gold studs in black or poudre – ideal for the woman-on-the-go due to its effortlessly sophisticated, functional and standout qualities. Last but not least are the Valentino open sneakers. Fabricated with calf leather and coming in three variations; white with a patent leather strap, white with a metallic leather strap and white/black with a smooth leather strap, the Valentino open sneaker is a unique, effortless and instantly recognisable must-have piece this season.
