What do you get when you cross over 40 years of shoe-making experience with casual style? MJUS, of course. The edgy (but elegant) wing of Italian footwear company Olip uses raw-finish leather, polished embellishments and contemporary cuts to create shoes that don't just walk the walk but talk the talk, too.

Hard edged meets sophisticated with MJUS

From punk rockers to 'It' girls, everyone needs a good pair of boots in their shoe collection. For a modern goth-inspired ensemble, wear a pair of buckled MJUS biker boots with some fishnet tights and an oversized boyfriend shirt in place of a dress. A slick of red lipstick, some salt spray in your hair and a velvet choker completes the 90s look. Or, for a night of cocktails and clubbing, wear your ankle boots with your favourite evening dress and slip a raw denim jacket over the top. A chunky pair of brown weathered boots adds a bit of a steampunk edge to smarter outfits. Wear them to the office with some ankle-skimming tweed trousers, a matching waistcoat and a billowing white shirt.

MJUS shoes range from understated to eye-catching

From richly hued leather designs with contrast trimmings to neutral shades embellished with quirky details, MJUS knows how to make statement footwear. It also knows how to nail simple sophistication (the label is Italian, after all). Sleek over-the-knee boots can be worn with a short tartan skirt, cream shirt and blazer for an academic-inspired workday outfit, or paired with skinny jeans and an oversized jumper for day-off wanders. Finally, on balmy evenings outdoors, you can't beat knee-high boots with a white dress and leather jacket.
