I’m not completely sold on the ankle strap. I mean, I could live without it. It looks like a bit of an afterthought to me, but then, I almost always have that reaction to ankle straps, so it could just be me.
Ankle straps aside, however, this is a nice little mid-price party shoe, and I love the red and black mix on the uppers. It’s also available in plain black and purple, and while both are nice, I think the red shoes this shoe to its best advantage, giving it a bit of a vintage look.
Although it’s a peep toe, the dark colours give it a somewhat wintery feel to it, which I guess would make it perfect for Christmas parties, although I can’t quite believe I’ve just typed the word “Christmas” in July. Gah.
