I’m sure it probably goes without saying by now that Shoeperwoman does not wear flat, lace-up shoes. (In fact, I don’t own lace-ups of ANY kind, other than my running shoes, now I come to think of it.)
I know lots of you do, however, and I also know that lots of you look absolutely fantastic in this kind of style. The Oxford pump has been going through a resurgence in popularity for the past few months now, which I guess is a good thing for our feet, because these have to be a much more comfortable and practical option than stilettos, or any of the many pairs of gigantic platforms I’m always showing you.
I still don’t think I’d be able to pull the look off, but I do sometimes like to amuse myself by trying to imagine how I’d wear some of the more “difficult” (by which I mean difficult for me, by the way: I know this would be an easy one for many of you!) trends out there, and if I was going to wear Oxford pumps, I think these Bullboxer shoes would be a good way to ease myself into it. I really like the floral print uppers, which are always a good choice for this time of year, and which help give the shoes a very refreshing, whimsical kind of feel to them.
I like to imagine these worn with a boater hat and tennis dress, but I’d love to hear how you’d wear them, too. They’re £42 at Spartoo.
