If you’re a ballet flat fan, then an ornate and sparkly version is your Autumn update. In line with all things glamorous, glossy, dramatic and eye-catching this season, this shoe is a must if your Summers are long and your Winters are mild. Say goodbye to basics and hello to oversized buckles, tactile quilting, piping, chain detailing, jumbo jewels and pretty bows. They’re perfect with jeans, slacks, skirts, dresses and leggings when you’re after a practical look that’s a touch more posh. These peds are particularly good with a dark pair of straight-leg jeans because it shows the shoe off at it’s best. Great for errands, shopping, running around and any other activity that requires an 8-hour shoe. Sensible style at it’s best.
