Sto­ry­telling Shoes

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

I’ve al­ways been a shoe per­son. I can re­call, from the age of five, lin­ing up my (al­beit lim­ited) se­lec­tion along the skirt­ing board of my bed­room, ready to don at a mo­ment’s no­tice – a trait I’ve car­ried with me into adult­hood. Sit­ting pretty, they’ve since be­come some­what of a dé­cor fix­ture. When friends come over, I usher them up­stairs to show them off, in much the same way my BFFS who’ve been blessed with chil­dren in­sist on show­ing me videos of their off­spring eat­ing car­rots/ us­ing the toi­let/ snor­ing. We’re equally proud of the lit­tle guys that in­habit our lives.

Af­ter all, my shoes and I have been through a lot to­gether. From the heels I wore on my first day at Look 6+ years ago to the nude Top­shop courts I trashed on my wed­ding day in 2014, each pair marks a poignant chap­ter in my life. Which is why I highly rec­om­mend you make a bee­line for p54, where we’ve found the footwear you not only need to en­hance your wardrobe, but that’ll also be­come part of your own sar­to­ri­ally blessed story.

Think em­broi­dered san­dals that’ll join you in soak­ing up the last of the sum­mer sun; satin heels that com­mand se­ri­ous spillage­dodg­ing on that wild night out; train­ers that kick-start a new hobby. I’m not silly – I know shoes can’t com­pletely over­haul your life – but one thing’s for sure, they can make you look hella good while you’re work­ing through the tough stuff. If that’s not in­cen­tive to put your best foot for­ward this sea­son, I don’t know what is…
