Fashion Fix: Rockport SS12 and AW12 footwear collections

Presia zip bootie €120 and Mary Jane shoe €110

Aren’t these babies beautiful? They were my favourite piece from the recent Rockport press day, where I caught up on their spring, summer and autumn collections for 2012. You’re looking at the Presia Zip Shootie and Mary Jane, and they come in a wide variety of colours and textures including black suede with contrast piping, beet, black and nude python embossed leather and a gold/blue exotic anaconda embossed leather, as well as the leopard print lovelies you see here.


I’m a big fan of this US brand, which has been available in Clerys for a number of years and opened its first Dublin store on Wicklow Street last April. The Rockport ethos can be summed up in one word: walkability. Their collections channel key seasonal trends that not only look good but are kind to the feet, too, thanks to the use of proprietary sports technology (the company is owned by Adidas).

From top left: Lola cap toe Oxford, €100; Presia zip shootie €120; Janae quilted tall boot €200; Courtlyn duck bootie €140; Dailana flower sandal €90; Presia zip shootie €120 and Mary Jane shoe €110.

Are you familiar with Rockport, and do you like what you see? I’ll be uploading more images to the Fluff and Fripperies Facebook page, so be sure to check it out.

OK this is from ROCKPORT? Do you know how dowdy their shoes used to be? Like waaay back they had natural tan and white sneakers, very old-ladyish! They've revamped their line, I'll check it out. Enjoy your new shoes!

Way too many pretty shoes, I'm particularly wanting those black boots in the bottom picture. Actually, I also want the shoes too, thankfully they live all the way on the other side of country, so my bank account is safe!

I love these shoes! They look great, and I know they're comfortable, too. These remind me of Naot shoes for sale I saw a while back.
