Shoe Trends: Bright suede court shoes

The classic court is making a big comeback this season, as I’m sure you’ve already noticed from all of the pairs I’ve been showing you this month. The key to this season’s court is the suede upper and the bright colour: and while the pointed toe has long been out of favour with my readers, I think this type of toe really lends itself to this particular style, which is the perfect compliment to all of the big 50s style skirts and dresses the stores are full of at the moment (much to my pleasure), so I find myself starting to slowly come round to the idea of allowing pointed toes back into my shoe closet again.

Some of the shoes in the image above are ones I’ve shown you before, while others are new: all of them, however, have three things in common:

1. They’re suede.

2. They’re bright.

3. They have pointed toes.

I’d quite happily take a pair of each, if the Shoe Fairy was offering, but what do you think of this trend? Are you tempted by any of these?

The shoes pictured can be found at:
New Look (Blue, pink, orange, yellow, £49.99)
Miss Selfridge (Pink, blue, £48)
Topshop (bow shoes, £60, in mustard and purple, red shoes, £48)
Zara (Green, £29.99)
Mango (orange, $172)

    I have a personal preference for round toes but if they’re not too pointy I’m sold.

    If only I wasn’t such a dirt magnet! My adventures into suede have never ended well.

    PS Shoeperwoman, do you have any tips for getting marks off patent shoes? I got a 2 inch black scuff on my brand new red patent shoes from the Office sale…grrr..

      I’m afraid I don’t – maybe someone else could jump in here?

        Apparently fairy liquid on a damp cloth works well if you rub in a circular motion over the scuff, hope it works for you! Xx

          I was going to wear patent leather shoes today when I noticed marks… so, thank you very much for the trick!

        Sometimes using a rubber/pencil eraser works quite well (tip given to me by a vintage shop owner!

          Thanks very much, I’ll definitely try these! I tried vaseline first but no joy with that.

            Nail varnish remover! I know it sounds mad, but a little bit will take scuffs off patent leather, and I have tried this one myself :)

    Very Springy! I agree with Ali, and would prefer the almond toe options, but those Topshop bow shoes are hard to resist.

    I agree with Claire and I avoid suede shoes because they’re hard to clean. And maybe a short pointy toe would work, but not a long one. I do like bright shoes though!

    I prefer round toes, but almond can also do… anyway, I’m looking for lively colors for this summer for ages! Great selection, thanks!

    I’m not tempted by any of them, I’m tempted by MANY of them.

    I absolutely love this bright coloured, suede court shoes trend. It is so refreshing to walk into a store or go on an online shoe store and see a whole lot of colour! However, that being said… I’ve put myself on a suede ban because it is just not practical for me :( It absolutely pains me because I really do love suede shoes!
