ASOS shoes, all available at ASOS.com
Three new pairs of ASOS shoes caught my eye last week, and I couldn’t decide which pair to show you first, so I decided to throw caution to the wind and bring you all three, in one handy post. And here they are!
‘Pivotal’, is a red t-bar wedge with a pointed toe and ankle-strap fastening. As you’ll have guessed from the $45, price tag, the upper is man-made (most ASOS shoes are), but I still like the contrast of the faux-suede against the matte heel, and think the bright red colour goes a long way towards making what could’ve been a boring work shoe a whole lot more interesting.
‘Parade’ meanwhile, has a very familiar shape, and the double-layered reminds me a little of some of the B Brian Atwood wedges which we saw so much of last year. These also work the colourblock look (Yes, it’s still going strong…) with their orange and hot pink colour mix. As is almost always the case with colourblock shoes, I find myself thinking that although the two shades aren’t ones I would ever have thought to combine myself, they actually work pretty well together here. I guess one of the things I can thank this trend for is the fact that, if nothing else, it has helped me think differently about colours, and how they can be combined: even if I don’t always apply those lessons to my own closet!
The last, and least expensive, of our ASOS shoes lineup today is ‘Piper’. Again, we have a colourblocked upper, but this time it’s attached to a pointed-toe court shoe with no platform. I initially wasn’t keen on the colours used here, which strike me as a little “cold”, but I think these shoes look better on the foot, and are an interesting alternative to a standard black pump.
