Last winter, Topshop released their fabulous ‘Gaggle’ pointed toe court shoes, in a range of gorgeous, bright suede uppers. This year, here comes ‘Gaggle 2’ – the same shoe, but this time with sequins!
These shoes are possibly even more suited to this winter than they were to the last one. Last year, pointed toes were still the exception rather than the rule, and although we were definitely starting to see a whole lot more of them, the rounded-toe platform still reigned supreme. This year, however, that trend has more or less reversed itself, and I think pointed toes are starting to outweigh rounded ones, and platforms a little less dominant than they used to be. What a difference a year makes, no?
I’ve shown you a few photos of these because I think they’re real show-stoppers. The re-appearance on the Topshop website, however, has me excited for more reasons than just that one: I’m now really hoping they’ll also release their ‘Glam’ courts from the same season – I already have them in two different colours, but there’s always room for some more, isn’t there?[Buy them]
