I’m not sure what to make of these sandals. They can’t quite seem to make up their minds whether they want to be a pretty, vaugely nautical shoe, or an dramatic, flower-fronted sandal, so they’ve ended up as a bit of both.
The heel says… well, actually, it says “flag of France”, doesn’t it?
The front, meanwhile, shows us where this shoe got its name:
Now I’ve had the chance to think about it, I’ve decided I like these… but I’d like them even more – and would possibly even love them – if they had a plain, navy heel, to match the upper.
What do you think?

I feel like these would be perfect for attending a parade. In Paris. On Armistice Day. Other than that, I’m not quite sure where I’d wear them…
I think they are lovely. I will even swallow the massive platform. I can see them with a full-skirted white eyelet dress, in the French Riviera somewhere.
I think they are so sweet! BUt I was out for 4 days (and didn’t use the computer at all, total “detox”! 🙂 and then I come back and see changes! k, then I read the blog will still change and there will be a new challenge, and I am sooo looking forward to it!
They remind me of a Moschino collection about 10 years ago – the shop I worked in at the time sold black shoes with poppies on them.
I think they’re more “barbershop” than “flag of France”, to be honest…
Without that silly heel they are positively gorgeous!
