Ankle straps were everywhere for AW13 and I love a good heel with an ankle strap! I know lots of people that hate ankle straps especially if worn with tights but I think they work really well and have worn Mary Jane’s with ankle socks on many a cold winter morning, providing much amusement in the office.
On Friday night walking home I noticed these brown, black and orange shoes in the window of Hobbs. I don’t think I have ever bought anything from Hobbs, often look for work but never buy, but I popped in to check them out.
They have a platform at the front and a decent chunky heel, with a buckled ankle strap. The front of the shoe is bright orange hole punched leather; this colour made the shoes for me, they just shout funky fun while still doing the work thing. These shoes are perfect for spring but will equally work in autumn adding a splash of colour to the camo trend that featured heavily.
This style is called Cathy and is priced at £159 however a 15% off discount code (SPRING valid until 3/3/13) has just dropped into my inbox so I might be tempted.
Are you seeing anything out there that’s going to work across the seasons in the shoe department, let me know – a girl always needs more shoes doesn’t she? 🙂
