Latest shoe trends with traditional craftsmanship creating affordable luxury.

Posted on September 15 2016

Mixing latest shoe trends with traditional craftsmanship is what Louise M shoes are all about and that is why we are thrilled to include the latest Hogl styles in our range for spring/summer. Hogl have been designing and manufacturing shoes for over 80 years so they certainly know how to create quality stylish shoes.

The Austrian brand is well known in the affordable luxury footwear category throughout Europe and Asia with over 130 independent stores. This year they entered the North American market giving the style conscious customer even more choice. We are pleased to be included in the handful of Australian stores offering the Hogl brand. It complements our Louise M brand with styles priced $260 to $320.                                       

The Hogl range sparked my interest when I first attended the international European shoe fairs back in 2013. It was obvious there was a focus on attention to detail, using high quality materials, and having a high level of functionality for maximum comfort. This was exactly what I was looking for to include at Louise M. The superior comfort in the innersole is not visible but hidden in the contemporary, feminine styles affirming their place in the fashion footwear category rather than the not so appealing 'comfort' category.

The Hogl pumps (closed toe, otherwise known as court shoes) have always been a best seller with all the shoes designed to offer room in the toe and heels that grip well on surfaces for confidence when walking. It was an easy decision to include the popular high heel as many of you were asking for this. This seasons pump styles with 9.5 cm narrow heels come in a choice of black or nude, with an on trend point toe. There is no surprise that Hogl high heels are comfortable too.

Additional to the high heel pump for spring/summer we are excited to have  platform black and white check slingback, and a black nappa leather peep toe pump. They will be perfect for ladies going to the races, for Christmas events and summer days. I can picture beautiful dresses with these gorgeous styles.

If you are not already aware, Louise M is known for the extensive range of block heels most suitable for airline cabin crew and corporate women. They have always been the core style at Louise M and this year Hogl have included the block heel to match latest style trends. Block heel styles offer great stability that ensures you are able to walk with confidence on any surface.  What I love most about the block heel is that you can put it on and get on with your day. You definitely don't have to worry about falling through the pavement cracks, or ruining your beautiful heels when walking on grass.

The Hogl block heel pump is the ultimate in comfort for work days. The rounded toe, 6cm heel patent pump looks both professional and fashionable for the stylish corporate woman. Available in black or nude this shoe will take you from the office to dinner eliminating the need to carry around multiple pairs of shoes. Helps with your bag choices!

We also chose Hogl to complement the Louise M brand because they cater for the airline industry with a range of styles worn by European cabin crew. Louise M now stocks the newly arrived Hogl Loafer and Hogl Stacked Heel. Both styles have a 5cm stacked block heel offering stability to be able to perform daily cabin crew duties efficiently and safely, while those that are conscious of knocking their heels love the stacked heel (rather than leather).


The loafer is perfect to wear with pants and meets the 'Style of Q' standards for Qantas cabin crew, while the Hogl stacked heel court shoe is officially approved for Virgin Australia cabin crew and included in the Virgin Australia Female Uniform Catalogue. It has been wonderful to be able to support cabin crew Australia wide knowing that they look professional, in a fashion shoe that also takes care of their feet.

All styles in the Louise M cabin crew shoe collection at meet the Australian airline shoe standards for female cabin crew.
