Giving our Shoes a Name
Sunday, 30 September 2018 | Admin
We decided to do a bit of a blog about naming our own brand ladies shoes.
We obviously had to call our shoe styles something in order to distinguish one from the other, so rather than just use a code most of our ladies shoes are named after stars of the 1940’s and 50’s, as all the styles are from those eras. We started this back in 2006 when we called our very first style ‘Ava’. We're never short of ideas, but sometimes, when having a new style coming out we have a ‘name that shoe style’ giveaway competition, and a few have been chosen that way.
'Ava' style, Ava Gardner (made in brown/camel & black/grey)
'Betty' style named after Betty Grable (made in white, black, green)
'Billie' style named after Billie Whitelaw (made in two tone burgundy, green, blue)
'Carmen' style named after Carmen Miranda (made in black, brown, green, red, grey)
'Dorothy' style named after Dorothy Lamour (made in 3 shades of yellow, green, brown)
'Esther' style named after Esther Williams
'Georgia' style named after Georgia Gibbs (made in red/cream leather)
'Ida' style named after Ida Lupino (made in white, cream, blue, red, green & black)
'Judy' style named after Judy Garland (made in cream, red, green, brown)
'Lana' style named after Lana Turner(made in blue/white as shown)
'Olivia' style named after Olivia de Havilland (made in red, white, black, brown)
'Rita' style named after Rita Hayworth (made in two-tone red, green, blue)
'Sophia' style named after Sophia Loren (made in white, red, blue, black)
'Trudy' style named after Trudy Marshall (made in blue/white & red/white)
'Veronica' style named after Veronica Lake (made in black, white, red)
'Wanda' style named after Wanda Jackson (made in red/green/yellow & blue/turquoise/white)
So, if you have any of the Rocket Originals' shoe styles shown above you'll know who they're named after. This is just a small amount that we've had over the years (there's been well over 30 different styles so far), and as they're all limited edition a lot of them have sold out now.
