Unashamedly solid shoes

VERSACE

Ooz­ing tough-girl ap­peal, this clunky yet cool shoe has a neo­prene sock, which is af­fixed within func­tional strap­ping to give the per­fect fit. Like the Swiss army knife of footwear, this shoe looks like it could dance all night, and then build you a camp fire.

CHRIS­TIAN LOUBOUTIN

The wild man of footwear of­fers what at first glance might seem like a sen­si­ble shoe. How­ever, the high back, deep-cut front and school­marm strap­ping con­tain a touch of the dar­ing, bal­anced on top of a pre­car­i­ous heel.

SANTONI

With a dis­tinctly eth­nic edge, this wo­ven wedge has straps that criss-cross over the foot. A bold mix of colours makes this per­fect paired with flared washed denim jeans or a floaty 1970s dress.

MARNI

With an in­stinct for geekchic, Marni of­fers a shoe that’s so wrong, it’s right. Rem­i­nis­cent of a child’s draw­ing, the too-heavy block heel is bal­anced by a slight plat­form, while the wide Vel­cro-fas­tened straps make it a thing of sturdy won­der.
