I’m sure you all know by now how easily my head is turned by a bright red shoe, but these Magrit ones have to be one of my favourites – this month, anyway. (And, yes, I know we’re only halfway through the month, but I’ve already seen a LOT of pairs of red shoes…)
Three things make these special:
1. The thick heel. This is fast becoming my favourite style at the moment: the stiletto will always have a large place in my heart, but this kind of shape looks a little more modern, somehow.
2. The curved sides. Need I say more?
3. The bow. Oh, the bow!
Now, to be honest, heels aren’t my favourite place for bows. In fact, almost ANY kind of heel embellishment can be a turn-off for me unless it’s handled well. In this case, I think it has been, and while these shoes would easily have stood alone, without anything other than the lovely shape and colour, the bow does add a little something to the design.
