Sunday Shoes 128..

These are another pair of Irregular Choice which were a recent eBay auction win. I'm not sure what this style are even called, and I'm fairly sure that I don't remember seeing them before, but they came from the same seller as I'd bought some others from and I'd been noodling about on the "seller's other items" link.

I really like the amazing, yet not overpowering details on these - the wide ankle strap fastens with a chunky buckle and draws the eye, balancing out the shape of the shoe and making the pointed toes seem less harsh than they otherwise might have. Although I don't often favour pointed toes on shoes - I'd always opt for a round toe, just as I'd always opt for a round neck on a dress - these don't seem *too* pointy.

I think that my favourite aspect is the shape of the heel - this, combined with the oilslick effect of the rainbow colouring conjures up intergalactic imagery in my mind, somehow. 

I really like these with a pair of opaque tights, although having worn them to walk into town last week, I think I need the tiny heel tips replacing already - the shape of them makes them so comfortable that I'd kind of forgotten how quickly they'd be likely to wear.

  1. They should be called Bowie!
    They're awesome, the heel is definitely the jewel in the crown here.

  4. Yes, I remember these, can't for the life of me recall their name though. I'll let you know if it comes to me. Love the rainbow effect on them.
