SHOES - Can Sneakers be Glam?

I recently fell in love with a pair of spangly sneakers. Now, I'm not usually the type to wear sporty shoes unless I'm heading to the gym, but I am willing to make the occasional exception if a pair bring out the magpie in me. That's what happened when I saw this shiny pair of Buffalo shoes.

Buffalo, you ask, isn't that who made those platform trainers worn by the Spice Girls in the '90s? Well yes, It would appear that it is one and the same brand, but they've diversified a little since then. They make all sorts of shoes plus clothing and other accessories. In my vast shoe collection I did have a pair of gold sneakers that I loved the look of, but alas they weren't very comfy. As soon as these arrived those gold sneaks went straight to the charity shop as the role of glitzy sneakers has been re-filled. The sneakers also come in black, although they are a bit more boyish so I'm not quite so keen on them.

I also chose a pair of ballerina style flat shoes from the same brand which have turned out to be the most comfortable pumps I think I've ever had. Any pumps which aren't soft around the edges end up really rubbing my feet (I've got bony feet with not enough meet on them to deal with really solid shoes). These have a suede effect with a subtle contrasting edge and pretty little bow. These are the sort of shoes that you carry in your handbag and can't wait to get out of your high heels for (we've all been there right?).

Best of all, they come in a range of colours and as I'm working with Spartoo on trying out their shoes I think my next order might just be for a couple of different colours. All the basics are covered like tan, browns, nude and grey plus the two black pairs below. Plus, some colours are reduced at the moment including a fab blue and an olive green pair. Definitely worth the money. 


All featured shoes are available at Spartoo.
