Dune ‘Demure’, £85
It may only be April but already this year I’ve lost count of the times I’ve found myself looking at a pair of shoes and thinking, “I’d definitely buy those… if only they had a higher heel.” The rise of the mid-heel is definitely something to be welcomed, and even a heels fanatic like myself can see that the shoe world badly needed a wider range of options in terms of height… but oh, all those shoes which would be just perfect for me if they were just a little bit higher!
These Dune peep toes are a great example of that. They’re basically a “Shoeperwoman by numbers” shoe, aren’t they? Stripe upper, red heel, bow, peep toe.. .I love everything I’ve just mentioned, but what I don’t love so much is the 2.95″ heel, which is a good inch and a half lower than I really like. Don’t get me wrong: I still like the shoes as they are – I just don’t LOVE them, which is a shame, because with that extra 1.5″, these would be close to Shoe Kryptonite for me.
Still, my loss could well be your gain, if you’re one of the many people out there whose been desperately searching for this kind of height. If that sounds like you, these are £85, and you’ll find them at Dune.
