STAPLE SHOES - london style

Now that I’m a fully established ‘Londoner’ I’ve become prone to lusting for items that are more sustainable than ‘Fad’. I especially long for shoes that are easy to wear, durable and will go with almost any item in my wardrobe.

These four pairs of shoes all look very different but offer all the same services – well priced, well designed and well, easy to wear.

Thick soled sandals – for easing myself into spring/summer. this style of shoe with the grooved soles, are everywhere, due to the discovery of swedish shoe brand Vagabond (amaaaze shoes) they are sooo 90's & just look super comfortable - love!

Nike's Roshe Run – trainers burst onto the scene S/S 2013 being shown as more than just a gym shoe. this trend ran (get it) through A/W13 and is still continuing to be a key trend in S/S 2014, (as beautifully highlighted during the Chanel Couture S/S14 show) but as fashion shoes, that really are ok to wear outside of the gym! These monochrome pair are perfect and considering they’re a ‘label’ arn’t too expensive at all.
NIKE - £69

Croc Textured Skaters – this gorgeous black, shiny crocodile texture has Luis Vuitton inspired written all over it (in reference to their S/S 2014 show), the slip on makes the shoe even more appealing - no time for laces in London! the mix of white & black is also calling out to me like crazy too....

Converse  - the all white, leather converse shoe is a maaajor style update to the average canvas shoe! this is more than a daytime trainer - super attractive, yet still a classic. AND the leather would make is super easy to clean, win win i say!  my canvas pair of white converse are coming to the end of their life so a new pair is in order; white leather – COME TO ME!
OFFICE - £54.99
