Miu Miu’s gingham taffeta slingbacks have been on my shoeper radar for a while now, and I’m only just getting round to writing about them, because it’s taken me this long to decide how I felt about them. Despite containing quite a few elements that I love, you see – green, red, gingham, bows – and despite me talking so much recently about my new-found appreciation for pointed toes, the shape of these particular toes did give me pause.
It was the advert above, from Neiman Marcus, that finally swung it for me: these shoes just look so much fun, so summery and, yes so much like they’ve been created out of a picnic blanket, that I just can’t hep but like them. I have a thing for picnic blankets, what can I say?
All three colours shown above can be found at Neiman Marcus. The blue version, meanwhile, is available at Net-a-Porter, who say they have more stock coming soon.
