Summer is more than just a season, it’s a state of mind. It is the time of year when you get wrapped in the sun’s warmth, the days are long and the whole world seems to let out a sigh and just relax. Let’s face it, life is more laid back come summer time.
Former American First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, once said that “a woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” This is something that anyone who knows or is a woman can attest to. You place a woman in a tough situation and, chances are, she’s coming out fighting.
It has to be said that Millé is probably not the biggest or most well-known sneaker brand around. They don’t have celebs like Kanye or Rihanna designing shoes for them but what they do have is heart, passion and the desire to please their customers and bring you the best and most awesome sneakers imaginable
It must be said that sneakers are a particular favourite amongst tweens and teenagers. If you think about it the sneaker is the perfect shoe for those members of Gen Z; not only are they the most appropriate footwear for day to day use, but they are so comfortable!
It has been said that life is what happens when you’re busy making plans. At Millé, we believe that sometime it’s necessary to put things on hold and to go out and enjoy life, lest you miss out on some of the best moments that you could experience with your family and friends. At Millé, we create sneakers and shoes for all walks of life.
Here at Millé, because we have moms of our own, we know just how important these special ladies are. How it is through their tireless caring that we came to be the people that we are today and it is because of that that we’ve created a fab line of women’s sneakers so that your busy mom can be as comfortable as possible, whilst she’s on the go.
At Millé we are aware of the fairy tales that depict princesses in glass slippers and other such fancy footwear but our big question is what do these ladies wear when they want to relax? We’re betting on Princess Elsa wearing her favourite pair of sneakers when she wants to chase after Olaf or build another snowman.
When you think of your favourite super hero you probably think of Batman, Spiderman or Superman. But what about the one man in your life who doesn’t wear a cape and spandex? What about the guy who made sure that there were no monsters under your bed every night? The guy who killed any bug, could fix any bike and who made the best pancakes around? Who are we referring to? That would be your dad of course. It must be said that dads are awesome and although moms get a lot of recognition, at Millé we thought it would be great to give a shout out to all the dads out there, especially as Father’s Day 2017 is just around the corner.
Never mind slugs and snails and puppy dog tails, it is backyard bugs and big arm hugs, torn pants-pockets, boats and rockets, holes in socks and collecting rocks that little boys are made of. At Millé we are well aware of the fact that little boys are tireless in their quest for adventure. Whether you boy is playing at cops and robbers or pretending to be a space explorer, there isn’t a better pair of kids sneakers for your child to be playing in thank the Millé Boys Noah Camo Lace Up.
At Millé we believe that winter is a time to turn up and get your style on point. Winter doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to stick to neutral tones, in fact here at Millé we always encourage a pop of colour to add some playfulness to your outfit.
Ladies, this winter there is no better Millé sneaker to add a bit of interest to your outfit than our Ladies Hailey Flower Print Lace Up.
Here at Mille we are always up on the latest trends and in 2017 the hi-top sneaker is the hottest shoe to have. Alright, it can be argued that the hi-top sneaker has been around for many a year, but this time Mille has taken the humble hi-top sneaker to the next level.
For the fourth year running, athleisure brand Mille, renowned for its comfort and durability is proud to announce that it will once again be partnering with Danone in support of their Nations Cup football tournament for kids aged 10 to 12. “Mille is an all-inclusive brand with the community at heart,” says Emerging Brand Executive, Dawn Laughton, “it’s a hard working brand that stands for good value, great style and quality. It’s these synergies with the participants of the Danone Cup that get us so excited to partner in this global initiative each year.
It is estimated that soccer is the most watched sport in the world. The beautiful game is said to be watched by 3.5 billion people the world over and is inarguably one of the most exciting games to watch. At Millé it’s a given that we love soccer, we do have Italian heritage after all, and it is because of this that we’ve designed some amazing pairs of soccer boots for men
What is it that makes Millé sneakers such amazing footwear for your family? Mille is a brand with Italian heritage, this means all Millé sneakers are designed with style and comfortability in mind.
From our stylish men’s sneakers and ladies’ shoes, Millé also offers kids and infants sneakers.
This means that all your family’s feet will be thrilled when slipping into their favourite pair of Millé sneakers.
It has been said that a woman can never have too many shoes or handbags. We don’t know about the handbag thing at Millé, but we agree that there is no such thing as too many shoes. But if women can never have enough shoes, what does that say for men? That they should go without? Of course not.
At Millé, we believe that men get just as much enjoyment from shoes as their ladies. At Millé, we have some awesome athletic footwear for men, whether it’s on the field or off that these sneakers will be worn.
It has been said that fashion is what you buy, and style is what you do with it. Whilst this is incredibly true there are certain trends that come with every season’s latest fashions and styles. This winter 2017 sees one extremely exciting colour come to the forefront- bubble-gum pink.
Pink is a colour that is seen as charming, feminine, playful and is the colour of unconditional love. It seems fitting then that Millé has created a gorgeous pink sneaker so that you too, can fall unconditionally in love with pink.
It has been said that life is what happens when you’re busy making plans. Here at Millé, we believe in getting more from life each day. After all, why do tomorrow what you can do today? It is for this reason that our hashtag for Winter 2017 is #letsgetit.
What does #letsgetit mean to Millé? It means that nothing will stand in your way. Not the hard work. Not the haters. Not the naysayers. Not anyone or anything. You set your goal and you achieve it; there is nothing you can’t do.
Women don’t always agree on everything but there is one thing that does get general consensus- uncomfortable shoes suck! It’s for this very reason that we, here at Millé love, love, love our sneakers.
High heels are the obvious choice when it comes to looking glam but if you’ve ever spent more than 3 hours in a pair of stilettos you’ll know the pain that comes with having your heels raised 4 inches off the ground. Sneakers, on the other hand can do the job effortlessly whilst still making you feel stylish, after all, who said that you can only wear sneakers casually? Why not throw on your fave pair of Millé sneakers, a little black pencil skirt, a cool crop top, a leather jacket and a killer pair of sunnies and kick it street style?
