Looking at the “New In” section of the Topshop website on Friday, I found myself adding one pair of shoes after another to my “to blog about” list, but when I came to actually write about them I realised I couldn’t possibly choose between them all, so I’d have to show you them all!
First up, and the first pair to catch my attention, are these green suede ‘Podium’ sandals, which are £100:
The colour of these has definite wow-factor for me, but the shape is chunkier than I’d like. Still, they’re the type of shoes which cannot be ignored, and I like the contrast of the patent heel against the suede upper. These are also available in silver and gold.
These ‘Lucite’ glitter platforms also have “wow” factor, although, for some of you, I’d imagine that will be an exclamation of horror rather than delight. The super-chunky sole is so big that it’s almost a wedge, and the shape is reminiscent of some of the styles Giuseppe Zanotti et al have been releasing lately. These are £80.
These Ariel flame side mesh boots (£75) instantly reminded me of Christian Louboutin’s ‘Circus’ boots, which also have a mesh an suede upper. They’re not exactly the same, but definitely headed in the same direction.
Finally, these Alita jewellwed ankle boots combine glitter AND jewels. These boots may not be made for walking, but they do look ready to go dancing…
What do you think of these new styles?
