Exclusive Shoes – Luxury Affordable to Elite

Saturday, 24 July 2010

exclusive shoesEvery woman dreams of a pair of shoes, which is unique and exclusively designed for her and when she sees shoes of the same design and brand with another woman, the impression of the exclusiveness and individuality is absolutely spoilt. Today the status of exclusiveness can be expressed in everything that we face in our life, from clothes, shoes to perfume and automobiles. The superiority is not what we perceived some time back in regards of the things we wear to look exclusive and exceptional. Initially the exclusive product is hardly affordable and exceptional, while currently even the ordinary accessories by the reputed brand Louis Vuitton are called exclusive while found in the closet of every fashionmonger in two or several dozen of pieces who can just afford them.

The first and the last distinguishing feature that differentiates the exclusive shoes from ordinary ones is the individuality. Yet, the exclusive shoes are launched in limited edition and affordable to individuals only. Shoes by Christian Louboutin, too fashionable among the Hollywood celebrities and wealthy high society ladies, are not exclusive at all. In spite of the high price from a thousand dollars and higher, Louboutin shoes are found everywhere in megalopolises of the world. And still, this not the factor of exclusiveness. The other trendy brand  Jimmy Choo highly demanded by fashion urban people is not considered exclusive ether, especially when the brand exposed the latest collection together with the liberal retailer H&M known for extremely low prices. The price of lower than 100 dollars is too attractive for the admirers of fashion and fascinating shoes, the joint collection brought the brand Jimmy Choo to the mass brand but not exclusive at all.

This is interesting that Jimmy Choo who named the brand refused launching shoes on behalf of Jimmy Choo brand. The designer is involved in creation of really exclusive shoes and the studio of the designer located in London is visited by his regular clients who are not so many and Jimmy creates the exclusive and absolutely special shoes for all of them. Shoes by Jimmy Choo, the designer not the brand, is the sample of classic that never outdates thanks to its exclusivity and uniqueness.

Stuart Weitzman is the other designer of exclusive shoes though his shoes from regular collections never go over 300-400 dollars in price. This fact does not pretend him to be nominated as the creator of exclusive shoes since annually since 2002 the designer is engaged in creating unique shoes for one of the nominees for Oscar Award the cost of which usually reaches a record of a million dollars.  So, in 2007 Weitzman presented luxury evening shoes for Diablo Cody, Hollywood director, from the gilded leather decorated with a bulk of brilliant diamonds.

How to differ exclusive shoes from others?

On the assumption of the notion of rareness, such shoes are distinguished by the key parameters. First, exclusive shoes are shoes affordable to few people. They are sold in few boutiques of the fashion brands or done by the provisional order and such shoes are not seen often on the red carpet of Hollywood or in streets of New York, London and Paris. Shoes are exclusive when they are produced in limited edition but not put on massive production. When the shoes are mass-produced and dozens or hundreds of shoes are manufactured daily, they are not exclusive, even if they have the labels of the fashion brands known to the world.

The other distinctive attribute of the exclusive shoes is the high quality which is achieved thanks to the utilization of the quality and expensive materials and tools and such shoes are exceptionally handicraft. Exclusive shoes can be compared in quality with haute couture attires which are presented without any drawbacks, no visible sutures or defects. Of course, the exclusive shoes are so attractive and even well-heeled women who can afford buying such shoes for several thousand dollars have to be in the wait list up to several months to own a pair of exclusive shoes.

High quality, handiwork and too limited edition are the parameters to explain one of the key characteristics of exclusive shoes – their high price. Definitely, the shoes of a million dollars by Stuart Weitzman are tremendous case nonetheless the exclusive shoes cannot be charged several dozens or hundreds of dollars. The price of shoes made by individual order or in limited edition usually reache several thousand dollars for a pair and the price proved to be correct.
