Over a year ago when Fidel and I first opened SILVERFLY we were looking for a shoe line that would catch some attention. A call from a family member in NY quickly solved our problem. We were introduced to Civic Duty shoes, and did not hesitate to make the call and get the product in the store.
Made from Tyvek, the material better known for construction or FedEx envelopes, Civic Duty shoes are unique, colorful, durable, and waterproof. They are affordable as well, retailing for $54 to $59 dollars. They catch the eye of every new customer who walks into SILVERFLY, and almost everyone wants to buy a pair. They look great with denim, shorts and yes, even with more formal wear. SILVERFLY sold a set of the “Consideration” collection to a wedding party for use with their khakis and bowties, and as you can see…they looked awesome!
Designer Steven Weinreb, started the company in 2009, after getting the inspiration from a Tyvek shoe bag used to package a travel shoe his company had developed. He felt the material was durable and good to work with it. A year later Civic Duty was born with 5 core pieces and a series of collection items, adding designer touches. Hightops, slip-ons, lace-ups and more, the shoes are versatile in every way and completely comfortable. SILVERFLY has had huge success with the brand and continues to carry a wide selection. Check them out at http://shop.silverflybrands.com/shoes-shoes. I have three pairs and wear them all the time.
We love Civic Duty so much, we have invited Steven to come to Charlotte and do a trunk show at SILVERFLY on April 11th and 12th. We are extremely excited to host Steven and look forward to the event. Be on the lookout for more details in the coming weeks. Ladies, all is not lost, Civic Duty comes in women’s sizes and Steven will be bringing the women’s collection as well.
Do you have your pair of Civic’s yet? If not, plan on coming to SILVERFLY on April 11th and 12th, meet the designer and walk out with what will become one of your favorite pair of shoes.
