Everyone goes around oohing and aahing over every move Christian Louboutin makes & this tends to cast a very dark shadow over some much more stellar & gush-inspiring designers of high heels & shoes. And trust me, there are MANY lurking around in the aforementioned shaded area, designed by creatives who didn’t make a legal cafaful over a bloody outsole colour! Yes, pun intended. I mean what’s next, trademarking black sandals? The LBD? Yes, I’m still annoyed. Anyhoo, I digress…
More often than not, I’m wearing flats & just like my high heels, they’d better be comfortable! Now, boat shoes have been all the rage this season when it comes to casual footwear, but I haven’t been the biggest fan until I spotted these sand-coloured canvas & leopard print shoes from LAMO Footwear, called “Cruiser“.
Yes, call me crazy, but I find this mule/boot with its incredibly tall shaft highly appealing. Leave it to Alexander Wang to make any shoe or fashion product “cool”, no matter how preposterous the design.
Hold on a second.
If you follow @ShoeTease on Instagram, you know that I’m an overly enthusiastic Winners shopper. I love the scour the racks of discounted brand & designer merch for that special find, sans pesky sales folk hovering around. That being said, there are many people who absolutely abhor this type of store & would prefer a curated little shop where they can whisk in & out of in the span of 15 minutes. I presume these are the people who dislike perusing vintage stores & shopping at Joe Fresh.
I’m quite open about my little shoe “problem” & in addition to my Gap denim addiction (which I’ve talked about here), I have a thing for Winners shoes. That’s where I found my latest pair of sneakers. Brand: Bucketfeet. Ever heard of them? Don’t worry; neither had I.
