I was recently offered the chance by Barratts to choose some shoes. I picked two pairs (the most fabulous pair you’ll have to wait until next week to see… they are AMAZING) and this first pair appealed to me on a couple of different levels.
Firstly, I liked the brogue-esque styling of them. I thought that they’d be great for wearing to work with tights and a cool skirt, but also double up as smarter casual shoes with jeans. These have a really cool, Elvis Costello-ish vibe about them and to be honest, that’s not a bad thing!
Secondly, I like the colour- red is my favourite and all my current shoes are black. Boring or what? Also, most of my shoes are either Converse or ballet flats. I wanted something a bit different to what I would usually wear and these really fit the bill. They kind of remind me of jive shoes too.
I’ve found them dead comfy to walk in and I have tucked the laces in now (they were a bit too much of a hazard for me and my clumsiness sticking out like that, but I wanted to show them as they came!)
I’ll show you my ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ shoes next Wednesday! Meanwhile, you can buy these here– or take advantage of Barratt’s excellent mid-season sale! Does anything take your fancy?
