I’ve been getting a lot of use out of my Zara tan/black two-tone pumps this autumn, and they’ve proven so versatile in the couple of years I’ve owned them that my interest has naturally been piqued by this black and white version, which are just £50.
These shoes have a slimmer heel than my version (So that’s one more reason for me to want them: a different colour AND a different heel makes a totally different shoe, after all!) and the contrasting black and white creates a very smart, classic look, which never goes out of style. Many of Zara’s lower-priced shoes have man-made uppers, but these are real leather, which makes the price-tag even more attractive, especially considering that this is a style you could conceivably have in your closet for a few years at least.
At just a touch over 4″, this heel is a good height for walking in, and the pointed toe is also very on-trend if that’s something that matters to you.
How to save two-toned courts?
With toecap shoes, I always tend to lean towards very sharp, tailored looks, which are a little different from my usual skirts and dresses. I think these would look good with crisp, menswear-inspired pieces, but I’ve kept this particular look current with a shot of hot pink, in the form of one of the pink coats that oh-so-fashionable this season. I don’t normally follow trends, but I have to admit, I love some of those coats!
