Illustrated Directory of Footwear - All Types of Shoes

 
Shoe Directory of all shoes

Do you know how Sandals, Trainers, and Running Shoes look? Of course!

But how about Sandals Shoes, Shoe Boots, and Boat Shoes? Can you differentiate say Mules from Slides, Slippers and Moccasins; Moccasins from Loafers and Deck Shoes; Slides from Beach Shoes and Toe Shoes; Deck Shoes from Espadrilles; Brogues from Dress Shoes and Spectator Shoes; Dress Shoes from Mary Janes and d'Orsay Shoes; ...

Can you? Now you can. See below the Illustrated Directory of Footwear - All Types of Shoes, courtesy of MY FLY LONDON. The thumbnail below gives a quick first impression:

Illustrated Directory of Footwear - All Types of Shoes

We illustrate each type of shoes, and next to it, we show you a sample of Womens Shoes, Mens Shoes, and Kids Shoes from FLY London. Often the sample is a close match of the shoe type's characteristics (even if the looks may differ), sometimes it's a loose match, and a few types of footwear FLY London simply don't offer (eg Swim Fins, Waders, Tap Shoes, Toe Shoes, Ski Boots).
