Raffia is big this season. No it isn’t, I just made that up. I have spotted a few shoes with this distinctive (and, I would imagine, fairly fragile) upper, the latest being these Roger Vivier court shoes. Rather than going for the traditional summery sandal, to which raffia lends itself rather well, these are actually in the classic Roger Vivier style, right down to the buckle on the front. It’s a slightly odd pairing on paper, but I think it works rather well: just not well enough to make me want to spend £659 on shoes I’d be sure to ruin on their first outing.
What do you think of these?
