Shoeniverse is not so sure.... the Giuseppe Zanotti Signature Styles for SS15

Let's start with the positives, shall we? In spite of the gold tone hardware, I do love the bag. The four side buckles and oversized logo are SO Italian that I cannot fail to adore this. Arm candy as it's very best.

G#17 Tote Bag

The monogram G#17 tote is the house's iconic bag. It bears the statement Giuseppe Zanotti Design signature logo and multiple side buckles. This version, in textured leather, is a mix of timeless simplicity and tactile glamour.

The shoes? I 'get it' in terms of what GZ was going for, and while the quality of the shoes is undoubtedly incomparable, I'm uncertain whether these shoes would have been better as a catwalk concept shoe, rather than produced for wider sale. The t-strap is a little thick and clumsy for me (although perhaps necessary for the height of the wedge. I'm not sure that the 'G' signature shape really adds anything to the styles that are better than the original heel-less wedges.

G#15 Wedge Sandals

The 'G#15' wedges are Giuseppe Zanotti's new iconic shoe for the season with the gold plated cut-out 'G' on the wedge mimicking his signature. Giving wedges the kind of attention they deserve, we'll be wearing these stacked high soles in a classic tone with a clutch bag and loose oversized top.

I'd love to hear in the comments if you love these shoes as to why and also how you'd style them.

Oh! Christian Louboutin... you are forgiven! Ladies, meet Dictata!

I think it's fair to say that these sexy little heels mean that I can fully forgive Monsieur Louboutin for this...

These are gorgeous! A little bit 'sexy secretary' or 'off duty dominatrix' - who wouldn't love to wear them? They are just gorgeously conceived, truly beautiful heels.

"Dictata" possesses that special something that keeps you coming back for more. Its pointed toe is accentuated by a v-shaped vamp that rises over the arch of the foot, creating sexy cutouts at the sides and on top. Drawn together with a fine ankle strap and delicate buckle this chic 100mm black kid leather style brings a feminine and ultra modern update to your Spring/Summer looks.

They can be yours for £ 665.00. If you can make them yours, let it be known that I am VERY jealous.

Shoeniverse Loves the Gym - get your fitness hit with these gorgeous new Nikes at Office #trainerporn (Nike // Free Viritous)

As regular Shoeniverse fans will know, I love fitness and I adore buying new trainers (or sneakers, if you will). I have found that there are only two brands of off-the-shelf sneaks that really fit me, being New Balance and Nike. Not all Nikes are great on me, but when they are they are supremely comfortable and cushioning. I am currently almost living in my new New Balance neon pink trainers, but if you are in the market for a new pair of shoes for the gym, you could do worse than grabbing a pair of these from Office.

Free Viritous by Nike
The Nike Free Viritous is a lightweight women's training shoe made from a breathable mesh upper and features a sock-like construction for a snug and supportive fit. This style also has Nike Free technology with a natural motion outsole with flex grooves which allows a barefoot-like feel whilst promoting flexibility.

- Breathable mesh upper
- Lightweight cushioning
- Rope style lacing
- Wolf grey and fuchsia colourway
- Women's style

Wolf Grey // Fuchsia
Style number 1989593484

They can be yours for just £84.99. Pretty great for a barefoot feel shoe. I would be a little cautious of purchasing them without trying them on ONLY because I am a little concerned that the top of the pink section might irritate my ankle bone. Let me know if you own or purchase a pair, as I'm intrigued to see how they fare.
