Janiqueel has a look at trendy, practical shoes from Seoul with Plenty of Soul and a Comfortable Sole

I firmly believe that with the right footwear one can rule the world.

“What Spur Shoes stands is the 3 most important factors, Comfort, Style and Price.” There you have it – a mission statement! SPUR Urban Mine Shoes is a Korean brand and they are proud of it. All the shoes are handcrafted in Korea, and that’s a big deal, not just an empty boast. Handcrafted shoes are special they provide the aforementioned style and comfort. To do so at a reasonable price is no small feat, small feet? No problem – with a range of styles and sizes from which to choose, small feet, large feet, and medium feet can find joy and style at Urban Mine.

Let’s start with comfort. Spur Shoes Urban Mine is talking about 7 LAYERS OF COMFORT. Janiqueel explored the concept and found that the seven layers are: 

  1. the UPPER (the stylish part that one sees most of the time); 
  2. a POLYURETHANE RESIN INSOLE; 
  3. an INNER LAYER CUSHION; 
  4. a CORK MIDSOLE; 
  5. ARCH SUPPORT; 
  6. ANKLE SUPPORT in the MIDDLE SOLE
  7. ANTI-SKID RUBBER SOLE. 

There is a cross-section diagram of all this on the website, but it’s worth enumerating to accentuate the fact that Spur shoes are special. These shoes are hand-built for comfort. “For once pretty shoes don’t bite!”

Take, for instance, the Anik Leather Sneakers in Pink that I don these days for my daily outing to the neighbourhood park accompanied by my comfortable companion – MR C! Yes, we are social-distancing. Yes, we are masked. Yes, it feels so good to be outside. 

Just one of the 26 styles of sneakers offered, the Anik Pinks are awfully cute and, I can attest, COMFORTABLE. 7 layers, you know. “Flats, heels and boots are the most popular styles for Singapore.” Loafers, Mules, Plimsols, Sandals and Wedges too. Be spoilt for choice.

As I write this, Singapore is hopeful that Circuit Breaker Phase Two will soon be a reality and we will see shops, F&B, and sports facilities opening up. This means that SPUR Urban Mine will open, too. YAY! Until then, take a look at the website and find that there are sales and promotions in effect right now. Even non-sales pricing is reasonable, to say the least, especially considering that these are hand-crafted shoes. Have a look. As I said, “Be spoilt for choice.” I have four pairs of Spurs. Each is stylish and comfortable.

Just an idea…

Janiqueel asked what should be included in writing about SPUR Urban Mine Shoes. Here’s what we learned:

The quintessential Korean style that is feminine yet contemporary, comfortable and highly fashionable.

Little is known but Spur Shoes are seen on the likes of KARA and Girls’ Generation. With our growing popularity locally, a lot of local influencers are also endorsing SPUR shoes.

Last but not least, Spur Shoes had a range of attractive promotions for the month of June.
