The gold sheen on the wedge heel of these shoes gives them an almost-unreal quality, a bit like an ornament of some kind. Or a trophy perhaps: the kind you’d win in the Shoe Oscars, if such a thing existed.
(Aside: Such a thing totally SHOULD exist, shouldn’t it? “And the award for Best Shoe in a Leading Role goes to…”)
These are definitely the kind of trophy you’d want to wear, though. As I never seem to tire of saying, gold is the perfect colour for evening shoes, because it really does go with just about everything, and just in case you were in any doubt that these shoes want to party, the sparky bow proves it:
Moreover, the wedge heel, whilst high, should make these easy to dance in. That’s important.
These are called ‘Gabrielle’ and they’re £100 at Kurt Geiger: click here to buy them.
