Going by the word “nautical” in the headline, you were probably expecting the traditional red or blue trimmed with white. These T.U.K. shoes are a little bit different, though, and instead, the nautical element comes from the rope print on the uppers, combined with the stripey background.
There is, of course, a hint of the red on the heel, and on the cute little heart that decorates it, which gives these shoes a bit of a whimsical look. If you look closely, you’ll also see that the rope print I mentioned forms a bow on the toe: a nice twist on a traditional look. So, in conclusion, we have a pair of shoes featuring not one, but THREE of my very favourite things: bows, stripes and hearts. How could I not show you them?
T.U.K is a brand I normally tend to associate with the thick-soled creepers they’re better known for, but these shoes will make me much more likely to check the brand out in future. If you want to check out these very shoes in person, however, they’re £55 and you can find them at Spartoo.
