Red Herring navy polka dot bow shoes

navy pumps with polka dot platform and bow

Red Herring pumps, £28

Every time I think there can’t POSSIBLY be a pair of polka dot shoes out there I haven’t shown you, along comes yet another pair to prove me wrong!

Today’s dot-fix comes from Red Herring, whose navy platform pumps are currently reduced to just £28. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t be particularly keen on the little platform, which would seem like an unnecessary detail on another shoe. On this one, though, I think the polka print makes it work really well: it’s a fairly subtle way to add a fun touch to an otherwise fairly classic shoe, and the print is obvious enough, without being overwhelming. These also come in black and red:

Somewhat unusually for me, I’m much less keen on this colourway, purely because the red colour emphasises the plastic of the bow in a way the navy version somehow doesn’t, and cheapens the whole look. I guess that’s not TOO surprising considering they ARE actually “cheap”, but I think the navy version looks better quality, even if it isn’t.
