Shoes with ankle straps aren’t generally the first style I’ll reach for when I’m shopping (although I do have a few pairs which I love!), but something about the chunky shape of these court shoes from French Connection really drew me to them. I think the colour helps, here: these shoes are also available in black, and while they’re still nice, they just don’t pack quite as much of a punch as the red version, with their thick heel and matching platform.
You put these on via a zip at the back of the heel:
with the gold hardware on the zip and buckle also providing a bit of contrast with the red suede.
These are currently down to £136 from £160 at Spartoo, and are available in sizes 4 – 7.5. Click here to buy a pair.
