ASOS PUNCH Metallic Mary Jane Platforms, £35
Well, these shoes definitely pack a… punch, don’t they? (Sorry, I just couldn’t resist. Well, it IS Friday…)
I always find it interesting how I go through phases with certain brands: or perhaps they go through phases which bring them more or less into alignment with my own personal taste, who knows. For quite a few months of this year, for instance, I didn’t really see anything to inspire in the ASOS shoe section (The clothing section, meanwhile, is another story…), but all of a sudden I’m finding tons of great shoes there – and being reminded of what fantastic value ASOS can be, too,
These little purple Mary Janes, for instance, are only £35, but they’re no less interesting for that: in fact, I think they’re one of the more distinctive shoes I’ve featured this week. That bright purple and gold combination just can’t be ignored, can it? I also like the way these bring a bit of “grown up” style to the classic Mary Jane, which can look either childish or classic, depending on the design. These ones have a classic shape, but a very modern colour scheme: what do you think?
I like the shape. I am not sold on the purple/gold combination; I wonder if silver would look better?
