my momas

Moma stands for Midnight Over My Action.  Kind of crazy, right?  In such a good way.  An italian company run by Gigio and Daniele Gironacci, Moma makes the kind of shoes you want to live in.  They all look slightly distressed and pre-loved, but not in an overly self-aware or pretentious kind of way (I'm talking to you, Golden Goose).  I'm most often attracted to their boots and their oxfords, and they do amazing men's shoes too.  But I've never actually taken the plunge until now.  And just look at them!  Aren't they lovely?  Yes, ok, fine, they look like many a boot I've owned and loved, but the shortness of the shaft is new to me in this tough sort of boot.  I can actually pair these with cropped or tapered pants, something my higher shafted boots do not allow for.  And the colors and heel height were just so perfect, I couldn't resist.  You can get them from their online shop (I had no idea!  Danger!) or over at Gravity Pope.  Oh, and I bought them two days ago and have not stopped wearing them, and in case you're wondering, yes, they are incredibly comfortable.  Well worth the splurge, I say.


  1. Oh. My. Gosh. I am amazed and need these shoes. So glad I stumbled into your blog. I'm your newest follower.

  2. these look lovely. Some months ago I was looking for this type of shoes, but failed in the attempt. Bought a pair with a heel to high :( I was too frustrated to wait for them I guess... the perfect pair..

  3. puaf! gorgeous! barcelona'da 35 numara bulabilirim umarım:S! salute!

  4. Haha, I love Momas too. I first found them at Daffy's in Philadelphia, drastically reduced, so I had no idea they were actually so expensive. And gravity-pope is fantastic (discovered it when living in Montreal for a year). Oh how I would love another pair of Momas. They are also frequently on Yoox, but never in my size. Yours are gorgeous!


Say what?
