These shoes have thrown me slightly, because I feel like I should like them much more than I actually do. The purple colour is glorious, the bow is cute… and yet something’s still holding me back. I think I’d probably like them more if those straps on the side were a little narrower: as they are, they look like they’d cover a lot more of the foot than I like in an evening shoe, but that may well just be the photography.
What do you think of them? If it’s unreserved approval, you can buy them for £325 at Kate Spade.
