Shoes designed to look like bunnies: this is exactly the kind of thing I was talking about a few weeks ago, when I said I used to associate Office with the kind of quirky, unusual shoes you can’t really imagine finding in many other places on the high street. Can you imagine finding bunny heels at Boden, for instance? Or Dorothy Perkins? Probably not: and I mean absolutely no offence to those brands when I say that, because I love them both, but these shoes did put a smile on my face when I first spotted them. Well, how can you NOT smile at those little ears?
The nice thing about these shoes, however, is the fact that, although they fall firmly into the “novelty” category, they’re not so OTT that they’d make you feel like you were in fancy dress. I’m not usually a big fan of novelty shoes (I absolutely hate most of Irregular Choice’s designs for instance: and again, no offence to either the brand or the people who love it – it’s just not my kind of style), but these won’t actually LOOK like bunny shoes until you turn around – and even then, passers-by would have to be paying much closer attention than people generally pay to footwear – so they’ll be almost like your own personal little joke.
The colour of these shoes is also very versatile, although if you’d rather they stood out more, they also come in black – and at a price of just £55, if you can’t make your mind up, it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine buying them both. Or not for me, anyway, although I’m probably not the best example here, as I do have a bit of a habit of buying the shoes I love in more than one colour: or sometimes even buying more than one pair of the SAME colour. Yeah, on second thoughts, don’t be like me, folks: I’m sure you’ll be able to choose your favourite!
