Walking into the spring with metallic shoes

Shoes are loved here in any finish: box leather, patent, snake, cow, goat, croc… but there is something indulgent about metallics that just keeps ticking the right boxes for me.

Luckily this season, a metallic pair is a great update to any outfit. Paris SS16 catwalks cemented the trend for this season and now it’s high time to shine, from our feet up.

Here are my picks:

Silver and fun, with its winkey eye, it’s ASOS Posey. I love classic court shoes, but when they come with a twist… oooh…. How pretty is this?

On trend, tie-up, ASOS Lordship, in pretty rose gold. So delicate! asos-lordship

Topshop Juliette retro pumps with block heels are also very on trend. A staple!

I can’t even tell how much Topshop Coconut tickles my fancy! Slingback, squarish rounded toes and a very warm gold. And oh yeah, this season’s sweetheart, he block heel in a super comfy height!

ASOS moral brogues are fun in blue and made for walking.

Dune gives the classic court Azzra that metallic twist: can’t decide between gold, silver or rose gold? No problems, you can have it all!

All stars, no stripes. It’s the super quirky bootie from ASOS, Radio

Pewter in this strappy, feminine and lovely Office number, Anchor.

Nine West Tarragon is another classic shape in a muted gold, a discreet way of adding some shine to a going out number.

Devious, these flatform brogues from Office ticks many boxes for me. Love the metallic and cork contrast.

Another classic retro with block heels: Mia, from Office.

Boyish with a block heel, Topshop’s Jean adds metallic to an outfit in more restrained way.

Pretty in nude. This Louboutin is so classy!

I always liked Mary Jane shoes, but, amazingly, have none. Being a perennial fan of that geek, or librarian chic look, I don’t quite understand why they are not part of my life.

So, let’s spare a thought for this style. This week obsession is… Mary Jane shoes.

Shoes news: when shoes do good

How lovely was to see Sandra Bullock, who voices Scarlet Overkill in Minions 2, auctioning a lot of 10 Rupert Sanderson’s Minions inspired stilettos, not only raising the money from the sales but matching the amount herself.

They are very unusual shoes, I have to say, but the Minion fever, and the charity aspect, as well as Bullock’s autograph, raised an epic US$42,425. With Sandra’s matching, the amount went to almost US$85K, all going to the Art + Practice charity, which helps foster youth in LA, encouraging education and culture.

As for the shoes, I find them very cute. And that’s the kind of shoes news that makes me smile even more.

More than love, sex, friendship, city, broken hearts, and what not, Sex and the City was a tale of shoes. So, courtesy of PopChart Lab, feast you eyes with this beautifully illustrated Carrie’s shoes poster…
