Maumero shoes really lives up to its name, which in Korean means “with heart and soul.”

The comfort footwear brand has unveiled styles from its fall ’16 collection that take inspiration from women who make an impact on the global community.

“All of our designs are inspired by real women we know,” label founder Susan Son told Footwear News. “These are the women who think about the world that’s bigger than them — without this philosophy we wouldn’t exist.”

With that in mind, the line balances sleek designs and comfort-conscious construction: Each shoe has a padded footbed and no more than a 3-inch heel.

Son said the label’s style philosophy challenges designer Sung Woo Roh to create on-trend shoes using “exotic materials, unconventional heels and toe character.”

Among some of the forthcoming styles available online in September, the Natalie shoe ($134) features a mixed-material profile that includes Boston snake pattern calf hair and leather, and a leather-wrapped heel.

The lace-up Hannah booties ($168) are available in dark gray, cream and green, featuring suede and leather uppers, and a faux wood leather heel.

Some celebrity fans of the brand include Gigi Hadid, Bella Thorne and Jessica Szohr.
