ASOS ‘Hurricane’, £45
Normally, I’d think shoes with feathers on the front belonged purely to the world of glamorous bedroom slippers. Somehow, though, I find these ASOS sandals rather charming. Despite the neural colour, I suspect they’d be a little tricky to wear (What DO you wear with fluffy-fronted shoes, after all?), but they remind me of something Carrie Bradshaw might have worn, and that’s usually a good thing as far as I’m concerned.
If you can get past the fluff factor, these have a nice, simple shape, which falls firmly into the “barely there” category. The cone-shaped heel will help give stability to the height, and the feather trim adds a giant dose of glamour.
Although I’m STILL not sure exactly how I’d wear these, even after staring at them for the past five minutes, the more I look at them, the more willing I am to give it a try. What do you think: would you wear these? What would you wear with them?
