There are two words in the headline of this post that probably told you before you even looked at the photo, that this would be a pair of shoes I’d love. Those words, of course, are “bow” and “spikes”. I love them both separately, but together? Together they become a force to be reckoned with:
This definitely won’t be to everyone’s taste, but I love it, and think the spikes really help add something to this shoe, giving it a bit of an edge which would otherwise have been lacking, had it just been a standard, bow-fronted peep toe.
Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned the neutral upper yet, have I? Needless to say, I’m a fan of that, too, although I also think these shoes would be gorgeous in some other colours, too.
Luckily, my wish is granted in that respect, and these are also available in silver:
Red would’ve been the icing on the cake here, and would’ve made these slightly reminiscent of Christian Louboutin’s Lady Clou slingbacks (although obviously minus the slingback!), but they’re also rather lovely just the way they are.
