I really, really do!
They have to be leather though – I’ve only made an exception on that once.
Since leaving corporate, I definitely went through a pumps stage (we live & learn!) and there’s probably only a handful of pairs I’d keep if my house was alight (& my Cons, obviously!). Somehow I moved onto brogues and this is a love story thats still ongoing.
I love that they’re comfy and smart casual and really work with anything – jeans, dresses, suits, skirts – I have a pair that’ll rock it. And similar to wearing zero make up and just some red lippie, it makes me feel like I’m trying when I really am too tired to!
My favourite places to get them are Country Road & Trenery, Zara (well priced!), Poetry and I even got a pair on sale at Hush Puppies last month. I’m always on the lookout for different/interesting pairs and I’ve even considered buying mens shoes at times (if sizing wasn’t an issue) because I liked the style so damn much!
I’m living in this latest pair from Tread and Miller recently. When I saw them, I needed them immediately (and being on sale helped!). I loved the brown/maroon colour, the heel was just right I liked that they were slip ins (I’m lazy AF guys!)…
