When I hear the words “Mary Janes”, I always tend to think of demure, almost childlike shoes – which, of course, is exactly how the original “Mary Janes” used to look.
Not these, though.
These are anything BUT demure and childlike, and the bright red uppers make them even less so. (These have been available in other colours, too, and you may still be able to find them in-store). In fact, I’d argue with the description of them as “Mary Janes” in the first place but I’m too lazy.
Anyway, these have the huge platform that we’ve been seeing on so many shoes this year, and I think we can safely say they’re the kind of shoes that will get you noticed.
They’re £60 from Topshop.
I’m in love. I still find them cute even though they scream ‘I’m tough and sexy’. The platform is high without being hookerish.
I think they look like stripper platforms. The shoe on top is quite nice though!
Oh, wow. It’s very likely I’d have trouble walking in them, but that doesn’t stop me wanting them very, very much.
Now that’s a shoe!
I’m such a sucker for mary janes, especially when they’re ‘sexed-up’ like these ones. The combination of innocence and vampiness is a winner. I have to say though, I’m not so sure about the stripe around the platform. I have a feeling I would need to see them in person.
