Over the last decade or so, fashion has given us enough room to break every rule in the style bible, once strictly followed by the fashion mavens of yore–from clashing prints to color blocking, the lines between tacky, experimental and fashionably acceptable have gradually been blurred. Given our fashion freedom, it can easily be said that we’ve seen just about everything; that is of course until the plastic shoes were re-introduced into the market. Heralding a new era in footwear, plastic shoes, which have been around since the 1980s, have once more enamored the fashion world and has definitely gotten back in vogue with its new styles, vibrant colors, and attractive scent.
Taking note of this fashion redux, Brazilian borne brand Terra & Agua launched their line of plastic shoes that was set to enhance the charm and beauty of Brazilian women. In 2001, the brand released their first collection of plastic shoes that were inspired by the country’s gorgeous females: Daring, up to date, and innately stylish, just as the women were. But past simply eye catching designs and embellishments, Terra & Agua’s shoes collections provide you with the utmost comfort. Created with PVC plastic as its base, your feet can be assured of a comfortable break in and you need not worry about sore feet at the end of a long day.
More than just your run-off-the-mill plastic shoes, Terra & Agua’s shoes go past conventional design with its use of mixed materials on the shoes, which include various fabrics, leather and EVA (popularly known as foam rubber) among others. There is also much attention to detail that even the colors of these shoes are carefully studied. For years, intellectuals and scholars believed that colors can transmit sensations to alter moods and even heal. Terra & Agua loves and believes in the power color as well. Popular colors include red, which symbolizes passion, enthusiasm, and various encounters between personalities. Blue on the other hand symbolizes purification, expels negative energies, promotes kidness and patience, and encourages the pursuit of truth.
No one understands beauty and plastic shoes more than the Brazilians do. This should be enough reason for you to head out and grab your own pair of Terra & Agua shoes. Choose from a number of designs which include the Grega, Comfort, Hally, Fashionable Ta (Ta Studio), Atenas, Capri, Montreal, Nice, and Garopaba, that will surely suit a number of personal styles.
