Shoe In

Tuesday, 24 March 2015 | Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Help! I can't stop buying shoes! Neither makeup, nor jewellery nor even handbags can compare to the high I get not just from buying shoes, but also wearing them and even admiring them in my closet. Ladies - and a few guys out there - you know what I'm talking about.

Luckily, this season it’s not difficult to stay au courant.  Many styles are back again (or rather, never left).  Here are a few of the trends I’m salivating over this season, and a couple that I plan to walk away from.

A holdover from Spring/Summer 2014, the white leather tennis shoe is still going strong.  I love my traditional Stan Smith’s or white converse runners, but designer brands are also strong on this style.  For something more upmarket, check out Common Projects.

Another holdover from last summer, the pool slide still has legs. I love the above style from Ancient Greek Sandals, with black calf hair.  Definitely don’t want to get any water on those.

Remember these? With the whole 70’s style resurgence, clogs are back and I’m cursing myself for getting rid of a pair almost identically to the above.  (I’m the poster child for de-cluttering.) These Michael Kors clogs are pretty representative of the trend, but you can find them for lot less too.

Another blast from the past, I think the mule is the shoe of the season.  I love the double strap style, mule meets sandal, giving this oldie a more modern edge.  This pair is from Nasty Gal. (Sweet price.)




Gladiator sandals have been popular for many years now, but now they’re creeping increasingly higher up the calf.  While I like the look on models with giraffe-like legs, not sure how many of the rest of us can pull this off. From Grey Mer.


The peep toe bootie is a shoe-in for early spring’s most wearable option.  Not quite a sandal, these are perfect for when temps get too hot for boots. Vince.

The slip on skater sneaker is another enduring trend. (Why is not having to do up laces so awesome?) I have a couple of pairs but I’m lusting after these faux snake sneaks from Stuart Weitzman.
