THE BIG PAYDAY HITLIST
Would You Dare To Wear THIS Shoe?
The key to infiltrating the world of It buys is to amass a cult following, which nowadays is spearheaded by social media. But just how did iconic wares reach peak need status pre-instagram? Courtesy of celebrities, of course! Back in the early noughties, A-listers dictated what was hot and, indeed, what was not. And as long as we’re indulging in the temperature analogy, Saint Laurent’s Tribute heels were once off-the-scale scorchio. Adored by Solange (!), her sis Beyoncé (!!) and Kourtney Kardashian (!!!), they were the height of sartorial sophistication.
Now, thanks to fashion’s obsession with all things (for the lack of a better word) tacky, they’re back – restocked at the likes of Net-a-porter and Matches (read: classy places to shop). Office too has paid homage with its aptly named Nostalgia heels.
So are you prepared to add them to your footwear ranks? Surprisingly, in our Insta-poll, 75 per cent of you said you’d welcome them back. Just promise not to wear them with handkerchief hems and disc belts – this is about all the throwback we can take for one week.
