Janan’s Top 5 Christmas Highlights

Our Founder Janan Picks Her Top 5 Christmas Highlights

“I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve been non-stop since summer. We’ve been away to Osaka, Japan to sell our shoes at the luxurious Hankyu Department Store during the British Fair, Elin started nursery so I’m back in the office a couple of days a week and we just finished selling at the Spirit of Christmas fair. Phew!

Honestly, all of the shoes that I’ve highlighted below have helped me survive through this busiest time of the year so I’m sharing them with you as I know just how mental things can get around now! And then to top it all off, the last thing we need is to worry about what shoes to wear to look (and feel!) good.

As an independent brand designing and selling beautiful, hand-made shoes rather than mass produced TVs or washing machines, Black Friday just isn’t right for us. So, we’ve done a spin on the day and have founded Blister Friday instead. You may have noticed that we’ve started talking about our Blister Friday campaign and there’s a lot more to come so please do stay tuned!

But in the meantime, don’t forget to use the code BLISTERFRIDAY for 12% off any items (excluding gift vouchers) site wide!

Happy Cocorosing ♥️

Wearing my foldable Clapham Burgundy Leather Loafers in Osaka, Japan

I absolutely love my foldable leather shoes called Clapham. Apart from being super comfy, they are SUCH a beautiful colour and are the perfect alternative to black or navy. I’ve been pairing mine with my black and white jumpsuit (in the picture above) but also with a pair of high-waisted, houndstooth print trousers.

Clapham…. available in a whole host of beautiful colours

Ok, so technically I’m not allowed to count all these gorgeous Claphams as 1 of my highlights, but just look at them! How can I choose?! The Pewter and Rose Gold are so stunning for party nights out, Christmas day and New Years Eve. The Dusky Pink is just so chic. And the Navy. Well, it’s navy. You will never, ever go wrong. And did I mention how comfy our Claphams are?! An absolute dream. No joke.

The pretty and feminine, scalloped ballerina Mayfair in grey snake print

I love our new Mayfair style. Granted, it’s not for everyone as it doesn’t have the elastic topline which I know so many of you lovely Cocorosers love. But it’s so pretty and feminine! Mine actually have a metallic shine (they’re my original samples) but I actually prefer the matt look. So effortless.

These Hoxton leather trainers are so, so comfy

When we did the Spirit of Christmas fair the other week, our Hoxton leather trainers were a real favourite and we had a number of Cocorosers who tried them on and then decided to just keep them on as they’re soooo comfy! I’m wearing my favourite autumn trainers here – the Hoxton in Burgundy.

My go-to leather boots

These Hampstead leather ankle boots are so fab and so, so soft. I’ve been stomping around in my pair since autumn and I can’t see myself getting out of them at any time soon!


So there you have it. My top 5 Christmas picks and my favourite shoes that have – and will – continue to help me survive this most busy and fabulous time of the year.
