This was my travel outfit in this past weekend’s segment to LA:
cropped moto jacket: MISSGUIDED (similar in suede)
pocketed tee: BABATON via Aritzia (similar)
Dress Pant Yoga Pants: Betabrand (exact)
slip-on shoes: c/o SUAVS (exact)
carry-all backpack: c/o Betabrand (exact)
With these shoes being my absolute beloved everyday pair for the last month (and counting), I was lucky enough to get some time from the young Austin entrepreneur, Monxi Garza, founder of SUAVS shoes, to tell us more about what inspired her line.
Hi Monxi! Could you tell us about the name of your company, SUAVS? How did you come up with it?
Monxi: SUAVS comes from the word Suave, which in Spanish means soft and in English means charming, confident and elegant. SUAVS Shoes are soft and comfortable, yet stylish and sleek.
With the trends of athleisure and comfortable footwear being as versatile as ever style-wise, what inspired the first pair of SUAVS?
Monxi: The first pair of SUAVS was inspired by exactly this – versatility and comfort. I wanted to be able to wear my shoes to work, out to run errands, happy hour with friends and even slip them on and off before and after a workout.
The microfiber terry insoles is genius! How did you come up with this concept?
Monxi: I love the look of slip on shoes, but I also hate wearing those tiny socks that roll down to my toes. I wanted a slip on shoe that I could wear without socks, which resulted in terry insoles!
