It’s the bow that makes these shoes special. Without it, they’d still be serviceable pumps (and in two rather nice colourways, into the bargain), but nor much more than that. The bow, however, is a game changer: the shape of this one is very similar to the famous Valentino bow I love so much (although presumably not similar enough to get them into trouble!), and it’s a shape that’s always guaranteed to make me stop in my tracks. Unfortunately, these shoes are sold out in my size in the black and white upper, which is my favourite: they’re still available in most other sizes, though, and I also like the blue version, which will make a nice alternative to black!
