European Union Cookie Regulations May Change Online Shopping

The Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) have recently (26 th May) a mandate which dictating that website operators with the EU gain explicit consent from their visitors before using cookies to track their interaction with the site.

Cookies are, at their most basic, a short line of text placed on to your computer when you access specific sites. The text file is then used to help the browser remember details about the visitor such as what items are held in the basket or whether this is a first time visit or a returning customer.

Forcing visitors to consent to these cookies is designed to make the internet safer. However, many argue this will come at the expense of functionality. It is currently unclear what form displaying consent will come in, it may simply be an opt-in box.

Simon Crisp, Director of shopsafe.co.uk has voiced his concern about this directive, “This is going to add a regulatory and cost burden to digital economy at a time when we don’t need it” Crisp felt that further cookie regulations may add further complications to online shopping which users, new to online retail, would be put off by.

Wicked Footwear Offers Vegan Hemp Shoe. It’s The Real Deal On Natural Material Shoes

Many shoe companies talk about being green, eco friendly etc. etc but in dubious times reality checks are needed, so let us ask the question openly: Do shoe brands actually walk their talk?

One shoe company; Wicked Footwear has been at the fashion forefront since 1997 establishing several brands fitting many lifestyles, from motorsports and lifestyle collection to hikers and casual walkers. Now Wicked Footwear is pleased to introduce you to its newest division — Wicked Hemp a VEGAN FRIENDLY COMPANY.

Wicked Hemp takes the extra step of using natural materials that are friendly to the earth and it’s a good fit for their customers around the world that wear their shoes. The ‘other guys’ make claims about their shoes being ‘green’ but the materials most brands they use are not really sustainable despite what they claim, it’s just probably only the name tag.

OK, what make’s for the truth are the two major components of all footwear, the upper materials and the soles. Wicked Hemp primarily uses HEMP throughout their line.

Most recently Wicked Hemp experimented with trying BASKET WEAVE wood pulp materials that were successfully introduced. Think about it, Wicked Hemp uses wood and hemp, two abundant materials that have been around for thousands of years. When properly utilized hemp has many different uses or benefits for society that include products such as paper, textiles, oil, rope, boat sails and canvas.

Matter of fact, the name canvas is derived from the Arabic word meaning cannabis. Hemp is a plant that can be used to produce thousands of products, why not shoes? Hemp is of the same plant species that produces marijuana but you can’t smoke this. Its scientific name is Cannabis Sativa. Hemp has been used for thousands of years to produce. Both upper materials are sustainable and have been proven to last. Recently hemp material was found that was over 8 thousand years old.

Whooga Ugg Boots Spread to the UK and US

Originating in Australia back in 2003 Whooga ugg boots have spread like wildfire across the United States and now look set to sweep the UK. The Australian ugg boot market is a dramatically different market to the US and UK in a number of ways. Driving up the East coast of Australia you will pass many small businesses which offer their own brand of ugg boots.

Typically these businesses are generations old and the owner has learned to craft his or her skills working in the back room of the store making each and every pair by hand. Unlike the majority of modern footwear manufacturers these store owners are the craftsman responsible for the manufacturing of the product and also the person interacting directly with and obtaining feedback from the customer. This level of involvement and decades of refinement have resulted in a myriad of stores which offer a very competitive and refined ugg boot. Ugg boots are unlike other types of footwear, the recipe for warmth, comfort and durability is a complex one with many secret ingredients.

Leathers in ugg boots are comparatively soft, the twin faced leathers are hard to come by and available in a wide range of grades. Different leather dying processes result in differing leather odours and differing colour fastness. The leathers stretch and so cutting boots to size is a tricky process. A boot which stretches too much will overstress the relatively soft leathers and the boots will tear. A lose fitting boot will lack the ‘clouds of warm air’ comfort that has given ugg boots a legendry reputation. But like any complex recipe when it’s made just right the results are very special.

Growing up in Australia Whooga founders believed there was an opportunity to offer a sheepskin boot which was designed solely for the purpose of being the most comfortable boot available. The leathers used in construction of Whooga are graded higher than traditional ugg boots. The inner fleece is markedly thicker and softer. The classic designs have been refined over decades and are very lightweight. The remaining secret ingredients are like any great recipe very well protected. Take a browse online for ugg boot comparisons and reviews and you’ll see the proof really is in the pudding. NYShoe Spy conducted what can be considered to be the most comprehensive comparison of all major ugg boot brands to date.

The Original Skate Shoes Manufacturer Proves To Be A Big Hit With The Youth Market At Extremepie.com

The original skate shoes manufacturer proves to be a big hit with the youth market at Extremepie.com; however the highly functional and stylish skate have much broader appeal.

Vans shoes first came to the market in 1966, catering to the growing popularity of skateboarding and rapidly became one of the best loved street brands, producing a wide range of shoes and apparel specifically targeting the highly popular sport. With such a long pedigree in the industry, it is no surprise that they are one of the leading brands for skaters, and with top names endorsing the brand including some of the world’s leading skateboarders, and sponsorship of some of the major skating and x-games events, they remain at the forefront of the sport.

“Vans are one of the most easily recognisable skate brands, having provided the footwear for generations of skaters since the birth of the sport in the 1960’s and are just as popular today as when the skating craze first started” says Extremepie.com MD Richard Gundle. The shoes are a popular choice at the online skating and extreme sports apparel store, with the brand no longer restricted to skaters, with it now catering to the full range of street sports.

Whilst the brand has diversified from skater apparel and footwear into all extreme street sports, Vans shoes are still primarily constructed for skateboarders, providing a high quality construction, double and triple stitched panels for extra protection from grip tape, and use leather and mesh for comfort and breathability, in addition to traditional suede to give greater durability to deal with a highly abrasive environment.

Vans shoes are the product of years of research and testing, and feature the waffle grip sole unit which is still widely regarded as the best sole design for skate shoes in the industry, providing unbeatable grip and great board feel. Vans shoes use vulcanized sticky rubber for the soles, with a waffle iron pattern to maximise surface area for expert traction, whilst each section acting as a sucker to keep the feet firmly on the board. Skate shoes are known to have to deal with brutal treatment, with Vans shoes designed to cope with the abuse from grip tape and concrete, with high wear areas reinforced to improve the lifespan. Vans have incorporated their Duracap system into the shoes, so that they remain functional when the uppers wear through, thanks to a thin rubber underlay which prolongs the lifespan considerably.

Keen Shoes Sales Surge at Fitnessfootwear.com

Warm spring weather sparks a surge in sales of Keen Shoes, as water sports and outdoor enthusiasts are able to secure early season discounts on hybrid shoes for the summer.

The first decent spell of warm sunny spring weather is usually enough to see consumers heading to the shops and online stores to pick up new footwear for the summer. This year has proved to be no different, with most of the country bathed in sunshine and temperatures heading into the twenties, it was a welcome reminder that summer is fast approaching and that wardrobes need to be replenished before the summer starts. Visitors to online performance footwear retailer Fitnessfootwear.com have been treated to massive early season discounts on summer shoes and sandals, with Keen shoes one of the most popular choices. Current discounts offer up to 20% savings on the recommended retail price, something which has proved to be too much to resist for its customers with Keen shoes sales soaring.

Keen shoes started life in 2003, with the brand formed with the singular goal of producing a new breed of sandal which offered exceptional protection for the toes. The brand was launched with the Keen Newport, a revolutionary new shoe with the lightweight and airy design of a sandal and the sturdy performance of a walking shoe. Termed hybrid footwear, the shoes offered the benefits of both shoes and sandals, and proved to be an instant hit with outdoor enthusiasts, with both hikers and water sports aficionados flocking to the brand. One of the key components which made the brand such a runaway success is the patented toe protection system. The soles of Keen shoes wrap up and around the toes for exceptional protection on the trail and from underwater hazards, with the quick drying water resistant design ideal for a life in and out of the water. Whilst the toe protection system was designed for use in their range of sandals, the system now features in every Keen shoe model, even in their range of slippers, making stubbed toes a thing of the past.

Kids and Shoes…A Never-Ending Saga!

A kid’s foot grows a full shoe size nearly every 6 months… which is kind of ridiculous because it means they barely put on a pair of shoes before they’ve outgrown them! As they grow, most kids also partake in a multitude of activities: soccer, t-ball, ballet, basketball, etc… meaning they continually need new shoes for each sport, season, size and so on. Let’s not even talk about the fact that it’s in most children’s natures to whirl though everything in their path: Grandma’s antique heirloom vase, hamsters, goldfish, Dad’s glasses and the latest fads and fashions; at times they really are just one step up from puppies. As a result, their footwear needs change in an instant; something fashionable one day, is freakish the next.

Because of these truths, it’s safe to say that a kid goes through shoes like Lindsay Lohan goes through court dates. Basically, this means that around at least once a month their bedraggled mothers and bewildered fathers are stuck dragging Little Susie and Baby Billy to the shoe store, putting up with their wiggling, patiently dealing with kicks to the shins during fittings, to pick out new shoes AGAIN, and footing the ever growing bill (pun most definitely intended).

Raising a child has always been expensive; and the cost of raising a child TODAY is frightening. According to the National Retail Federation, parents will spend an average of $606 on back to school supplies and $103 on shoes alone this year. Kids want the coolest clothes, the newest iPhone; they want to play on travel tournament teams and text until their thumbs fall off. Not to mention the cost of that brand new, and very safe SUV to tote said kids around, the gas to fill it, food and grocery costs. Dad can kiss his once a week golf habit goodbye and Mom’s just gonna have to deal with her gray roots growing in, cause a pricey professional dye job just isn’t in the cards.

Being a parent today is starting to sound grim…but…help is on the way! If The Shoe Doesn’t Fit wants to help doting parents with at least one aspect of the costs of raising kids. The website is an online auction site dedicated to shoes and shoe related items only. Besides the holidays, the scariest and most costly time of year for parents is undoubtedly Back To School. If The Shoe Doesn’t Fit gives Moms and Dads a way to save on that never-ending expense of school shoes. The site offers a continually changing selection of children’s shoes at affordable prices AND helps Mom avoid the dreaded trip to the shoe store (trying to get a seven year old boy to sit still while attempting to fit shoes on him is straight misery).

Make Money Selling Your Soles and Not Your Soul!

Someone looking for extra money could start a lemonade stand… but that stops being cute (and probably legal) after about age ten; or they could hunt through the couch cushions for loose change…but that probably wouldn’t turn up much.

They could hold a yard sale; but who really wants to wake up before dawn, melt in the sun, and argue over the price of a hubcap or cassette tape? At first glance, selling on an auction site seems like the perfect answer, But as people try to learn to list on traditional auction sites, it feels a little like dealing with the devil; it’s a complicated, time consuming, energy zapping, costly process, leaving you wondering if it is all worth it…until now. There is a better solution…instead of selling their souls on an auction site; people can now sell their soles on www.iftheshoedoesntfit.com, the auction site for shoe lovers.

www.iftheshoedoesntfit.com is the place to make a deal (and no, not with the devil); the site enables people to sell, swap and shop for shoes. The best part is, because the site is simple and affordable to use, they won’t feel like they’ve been to hell and back in the process. The site only charges $1.00 per listing, no extra or hidden fees, and registration is quick and easy.

Christopher Kane Returns This Season With His Third Collaboration With Topshop

The landmark collection, which is 39 pieces strong, will be the largest Topshop Boutique collection with a designer to date.

Echoing his AW09 collection Kane’s fusion of manmade embellishments creates a subversive look. Body conscious pieces in fine black gauze form the back bone of the collection and are embellished with mirrors and eyelets. This adornment features on several pieces including 50s inspired briefs which are high waisted and worn as outerwear, slim fitting leggings, a slick long sleeved dress and a high necked body with cap sleeves.

Simple garments are given an element of luxury; a black cotton shirt buttons-up to the collar to expose oversized black gems covering the neckline, a white T-shirt dress features several rows of oversized white opaque gems around the neck, sleeves and hem of the dress. Evening dresses and camisoles have a deep V to accentuate the décolletage and feature oversized jewels around the neckline. A heavy black jersey scarf is adorned with gems along the perimeter updating a winter essential.

For this collection Christopher Kane also debuts a footwear and accessories collection creating pieces which are suitably both modern and romantic. Slouch leather pouch bags are oversized and can be worn with a cross body strap, covered entirely with tiny mirrors, the bag features two large leather tassels which hang from the base of the pouch.

Rachael Proud, senior buyer for Topshop said: “What Christopher Kane has done with this collection is a really new thing for Topshop – in both the size of the range and the production of it. It’s such high spec, such high quality and I really think if you saw it on a catwalk at London Fashion Week it wouldn’t look out of place. It’s got amazing elements of past collections but the new mirrored dresses and opaque gems on other styles just look so amazing.”

The Burton mainline autumn/winter 2008 range is more refined with dressed down tailoring taking centre stage to give a smarter but relaxed twist to casual wear.

Burton’s Black Label premium range brings in a clean sophisticated look and features subtle design touches and luxury fabrics to emphasise the exclusivity and premium look of the collection.

In addition, this season Burton proudly introduces the Montague Burton Heritage Collection, a stylish range of quality contemporary suiting born out of a passion for traditional tailoring methods. The fabric selection and labeling of the mens suits take inspiration from original 1940s, 50s, and 60s Burton garments and are brought up to date with a sharper modern fit.

The Burton/GQ promotion will be featured online, and in the following selected cities and shopping centres nationwide. London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Nottingham, Leeds, Bluewater, Eldon Square, Leicester, Meadowhall, Reading, Southampton, Milton Keynes, Croydon, Cambridge, Guildford, Kingston, Belfast, Chester, Bromley, Cardiff, Merry Hill, Aberdeen, Metro Centre, Colchester, Exeter, Bath, Plymouth, Derby, Solihull, Wolverhampton, Braehead Park, Tunbridge Wells, Ipswich, Blanchardstown Centre, Swansea, Doncaster, White Rose, Gateshead and Brighton.
