First I found these shoes by River Island:
“Well,” I thought, “It doesn’t get much better than this, does it? Simple shape, statement print, STRIPES… These are fabulous, and quite possibly my favourite stripe shoes – out of a LOT of stripe shoes – of the year. They just cannot be bettered!”
Then I found these:
J. Renee slingbacks, $59.95
Also stripey, also slingbacked, but with a Carven-esque bow on the heel which I think just gives them the edge over the River Island shoes – only just, mind you. Although, with that said, the patent upper of the former shoe would probably be more durable than the fabric one of the latter, and that’s always a consideration.
I may not be able to decide which of these I like best, then, but I think one thing’s for certain: I’m LOVING the stripe shoe trend. (Just in case you hadn’t guessed…)
Which pair would you go for?
