I’ve never endorsed the Crocs, the Birkenstocks or any such ‘summery’ cult footwear because my reaction always consists of a raised superarched eyebrow and physical balking at the exorbitant price of an what is essentially to me an aesthetically disturbing shoe.
Something is a-changing though, what with my recent conversion to the Melissa x Vivienne Westwood Anglomania 3 strap shoe. I’m actually tempted by the current summer colours like lilac and aqua. An even more affordable bit of feet rubber are the F-Troupe bathing shoes – which, as a reader pointed out, have been Teen Vogued. After a joyful session of bounding about an empty Oxford Street this morning wearing them, I’m fully convinced that another £20 pop of colour is needed to augment the flat’s intake. Iincidentally, I have had the most flat additions to my shoe collection this year compared to the four previous years.
