Spring 2011: Rockport Shoes

By AnnMarie Proudfoot

On a very wet morning  before Christmas I was warmly welcomed by some of the UK Rockport team to preview of their spring summer 11 collection in the Dylan hotel in Dublin 4.  A good choice of venue I might add; the library is really cosy and intimate, and the fire light in the corner made it all the more welcoming.

My association with the Rockport label was always one of comfort and practicality, two things that usually don’t rate high on my priorities when buying shoes.

Although these elements are still key in their range, they have definitely focused on the inclusion of a more stylish look. This focus also helps to bring an appeal to a younger audience, with the Audrey weave sandal and chain thong (pictured). The business range is still based more on functionality and comfort.

According to the brand the spring summer 2011 collection was created with three key elements in mind; a nod to Rockport’s all American nautical roots, craftsmanship which is inspired by the expert knowledge of artisans, and a business essential range which incorporates AdiPRENE by adidas for athletic-inspired comfort.

If my ‘Anna’ boots are anything to go by, the spring range should fit like a glove.

Rockport is now open in Wicklow Street Dublin 2 and at Clerys Dublin 1.

Pictured is the Audrey weave sandal is €130 and the Chain thong sandal €65.
