Dolce Vita red suede ‘Valencia’ platforms

I think these shoes are the proof that a bit of bright red can make any shoe instantly more appealing. To me, I mean. In black or brown, I may not have given these a second look, but that “STOP! LOOK AT ME!” colour did exactly what it’s supposed to here. I’d still like to snip off the ankle strap, but I’m willing to bet that this is one of those shoes that looks much better in person than it does in the product shot.

It you’re willing to give them a go, they’re by Dolce Vita, they’re also available in black, and they’re $210 at Shopbop. Click here to buy them.


  • I think the front is too high and looks a bit old fashioned. Also: an ankle strap on a slingback? What’s up with that?

    The red is good though.

  • I bought this pair and yes, ankle straps are slightly annoying but overall, I love it! I got a lot of compliments (wore to an outdoor wedding recently) and it looks more like an expensive pair to what it really is.
