FOOTWEAR FIRST FRIDAY - My Wishlist of the Most Covetable Styles Right Now
Welcome to 'Footwear First Friday' - the very first of a brand new 2014 feature here on Shoeniverse. Many of our post features different styles etc and all sorts of looks, but this one will be ALL about the shoes.
I've chosen the first five styles in a truthfully unabashed selfish manner. I love them. I wanted to show them to you. They are awfully pretty after all, and isn't that really why we are all here?
The feature shoes in the middle are a crochet and velour pump from Alexander McQueen. So rich and opulent, they really are an immaculate example of high-end design. I adore these shoes. They belong in a museum. Or my shoe closet. Possibly both.
Buttom right are from Vince and are called Addison, in the wood/smoke colourway. I particularly love peep-toe booties, despite their rather obvious impracticalities, and the neutral tones here make them versatile enough to justify spending out on them. Were it not for the McQueen pumps then these would be my favourite. As it is, these would be the top of my actual shopping list out of the five as I just know I'd want to wear them everywhere.
Buttom left are a beige zip biker boot from one of my perennial favourites, Giuseppe Zanotti. So simple, so butter soft and luxuriant, and yet you could easily miss them when paired down with leather leggings and a slouchy tee. But I'd have to have two pairs of these, just so I had a spare pair for when the first was worn out. Simple, elegant and utterly wearable.
Top right comes from Sam Edelman are are a pair of laser cut shoe boots called Ellie. These could easily become my go-to evening shoes. Classy and sexy with a super high heel in raven dark black? Yes please.
The last boots in the top left comes from ACNE and are called Cypress. There's something extremely appealing about the gorgeously shiny, oily finish patent uppers that I find it hard to tear my eyes away from. A stunning twist on 'just another paid of ACNE boots' - and I hope to see more of this finish in the future.
