Best on the Highstreet | This Season’s Shoes September 21, 2010

I love shoes, as you may well have guessed. I would imagine the rather sizeable shoe collection would be your first clue. However, although I dream of owning a number of wonderful designer pairs of shoes, I don’t want to spend lots of money on them. Thanks to this, most of my wonderful shoes come from highstreet brands like Topshop (their clothes may be horrid, but I lurve their shoes!) or New Look. So, in the spirit of window shopping and being able to justify it, I thought I would write a post to sum up the best “on trend” shoes that are credit card friendly.

Shearling shoes

Shearling and furs are everywhere at the moment. Some of the fuzzy creations I hate, but other examples actually make me feel all appropriately wintery and snuggly. The line between cute and terrible is a thin one, but in my opinion you can’t go much wrong with these ones.

OK, they might be slightly tasteless, but these New Look boots are Snow Queen boots!

Topshop fur buckle over knee boots

Shearling is actually sexy in these Topshop boots!

Chunky Heels

The 90s have returned! In many ways this is, quite frankly, terrifying. However, some of the designs have made chunky heels look as good as possible, and I have found myself pining after examples like the oh-so-coveted swallow heels from Miu Miu. On the highstreet the risk is that shoes will look a little outdated, but there are still some modern interpretations out there…

I feel I should dance to the Spice Girls in these. OK, so I always dance to the Spice Girls... but still!

GRADE Wood Heel Court Shoes topshop

Slightly more wearable court shoes from Topshop

ASOS purple tasselled chunky heeled boots

I may be in the minority loving these quirky ASOS boots, but I don't care!


These seem to have been in fashion for ever, but I still don’t own a pair. I find that they are quite hard to do, and the majority of the brogues out there can look a little grannyish. However, there are some lovely ones, you just have to hunt them out.

Tan Floral Brogue miss selfridge

If you must wear flat brogues, these floral ones from Miss Selfridge are probably the best!

See anything you like?!

This post has made me hanker after brogues even more than I was already!

Currently having a shoe mourn, as for some reason my feet seem to have shrunk and NONE of my heels fit me….though this is clearly a sign that I need to buy lots of new ones!

I really, really, really want the Topshop over-the-knee shearling boots. I can only imagine how snuggly and warm they’d be 🙂

I am dying for those yellow brogues! want! Its so hard to find me shoes though, as I have large and flat feet, especially heels. Or else I’d buy those puppies on line right now!

Tasteless or not, I actually like the New Look snow queen boots… I may even put them on my christmas list. 🙂

I love shoes too 🙂
Especially high heels.

The “walking boot” is lovely.
