Emma Stone, modern Lindy Hopper?

After spotting Aris Allen’s white mesh oxford in The Help, it comes as no surprise that their two tone mesh oxford and wingtip would make an appearance in a new film called La La Land, starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as a jazz pianist and aspiring actress in Hollywood respectively.  Thanks to Ben Beccari for the tip, via Jive Junction. 🙂

But what are Aris Allens doing on the feet of these actors? Will there be dancing? Big arms? Stay tuned!

Newsflash: Aris Allen Mesh and Leather Oxford

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

Since I didn't snap a photo of the Aris Allen prototype, here's a version by Allen Edmunds, their "Strawfut," to give you an idea of the mesh and leather combo, but with a $300+ price point.

This past weekend at DCLX, amidst discussions of trumpet skirts, Dancestore.com owner Gay Santelmann showed me
her prototype of an Aris Allen
mesh and leather oxford, set
to go into production and be available for purchase in, approximately, 4 to 6 months. Excited! I’ve been looking for
a vintage pair for my husband and it’s just not happening…
but now it is!

I’m a big fan of the Dancestore.com mesh and leather heeled oxford for its comfort, flexibility, and breatheability. I can imagine that the same concept will translate well into an oxford for men. Kudos to Dancestore.com for picking up on this functionality.

Did I think to take a photo of the prototype? No, of course not, but the shoe I saw was two tone, with dark brown leather and tan mesh, and was copied from a 1940’s pair of the same coloring. Gay said they would also be available in black leather/white mesh, and possibly a black and navy combo.
