Somtimes it can just be the little things that make the mark between a good shoe and a great shoe like the perfect colour or the way they’ve been stitched. But invariably I find there’s a gap between the shoes I see in my head and the reality of what’s available.
Take this Burberry boot..
Mouth-watering in design, colour and texture. I want this shape to wear with pencil skirts, 3/4 length trousers..but for every day?
Why is it the more expensive the brand the higher the heel? Is it a subtle comment to say the women who can afford these shoes don’t need to
work walk?, or are they hell-bent on proving that comfort and height costs special engineering and therefore more money? Except I believe that after a certain height every shoe becomes a taxi-shoe and only good for extra pain.
This autumn I want shoes with character that tell a story…a 1940s vibe mixed with a bit of 70s with a splash of growing up gentley modern elegance..I want a desert boot with a wedge heel to wear with jeans…a really masculine type with lots of stitching..
And a black pair with a brogue tassel for dresses and skirts..
So if you know where to get any of these or similar please say..otherwise I’ll have to keep on dreaming..
