The Boden Spring Shoe Of Dreams

Every now and then (OK, every new season) I get a bee in my bonnet about a pair of shoes. Once I’ve seen them, I can’t get them out of my head and I either buy them or spend months regretting it – feeling pangs of sorrow each time I see them on someone else’s feet.

So let me introduce you to this Spring’s lusted-after pair…

I actually started getting slight palpitations when I saw these shoes on the Boden website. Isn’t that a bit mad? I bought a similar pair in black back from New Look back in December  – they’re a more affordable version of the Aquazurra shoes worn by fashion blogger Laura from WITblog.

I’ve worn the black pair loads, but when I saw the SILVER! To me, metallic is a neutral, so these bad boys will pretty much go with everything in my wardrobe. Jeans, cropped trousers, dresses, skirts…

Just as an FYI, they also come in orange and navy and they’re not cheap at £89.99 but look at them…. they’re worth it, right?


 With thanks to Boden! For details of how I work with brands, see my Work With Me page.

    I never used to be a shoe person mostly because all the beautiful ones were skyscraper high and I just don’t do heels. But lo and behold the statement flats were born and all of a sudden I’m lusting after shoes like never before! These Boden shoes are beyond perfection. I’m in love *dreamy sigh*

    I’m the same! I’m terrible with heels (unless I pop them in my bag and take them to work / a party) so I’m so happy that there are so many ace flats nowadays. Have you seen they’re doing the Alice shoe as a flat soon??

      It is, isn’t it? I could buy so many of their shoes!

    Love those shoes! Everything they make is so comfy. Quite a few of my wardrobe essentials are from Boden. If I could, I would buy absolutely everything for my little man from their catalogue: cool kid stuff!
