Rainbow Bright

Some people welcome a dry day as the perfect opportunity to go for a long country walk or hang the washing outside on the line. Personally, I love it when it’s not raining because it means I can dip into my suede shoe collection – much neglected over the past few months for obvious meteorological … More Rainbow Bright

New Blue

If I’ve been quiet on the school-run shoes front recently it’s not because I’ve fractured a toe again and had to resort to flats, rather it’s because the persistent rain (it’s been wet weather, like, pretty much a year now) has limited me to my wellies, waterproof DC trainers (sneakers) or gold Kurt Geiger boots … More New Blue

United Neon

These are far brighter than my iPhone allows, despite the fact they’ve got a little grubby over the years (if anyone knows how to clean fabric shoes, please let me know). However, they are one of the pairs of shoes I own which get the most comments. I don’t know if it’s because they’re multi-coloured, … More United Neon

Starman

I love these Irregular Choice boots because they’re a great style (crazy cowboy vs rocket riding boots, anyone?!), an unusual combination of colours, and are nice and wide – meaning they’re also very comfortable. But mainly I love them because they’re totally bonkers (that means ‘insane’, for all you Americans out there)! Let’s just deconstruct … More Starman

Leopardprint Love

Friday’s school-run shoes are simply outstanding – to my mind at least! Dizzily high platform heels with leopard-print, furry ponyskin (or some such), they’re made by Deena & Ozzy and were bought in the Urban Outfitters pre-Christmas sale. For me it was love at first sight. Surprisingly, despite their height, they are both comfortable and … More Leopardprint Love

Khaki Nikes

Today’s school-run shoes are these khaki Nike trainers (UK speak for sneakers). Trimmed in various shades of green, they’re higher than high-tops (does this make them top- tops?!) and lined with lovely warm faux sheepskin. They are utterly unflattering and make my legs look like stumpy tree-trunks (and I’m 5’9″!), but they’re also cosy and … More Khaki Nikes

Monkey Business

Wednesday’s school-run shoes are some of my favourites: a pair of Irregular Choice turquoise felt heels splashed with red gingham bows and backs, they also incorporate three smiling ice-cream, strawberry and banana-hugging monkey trinkets on each shoe (of course)! The heels have thick red rubber tips, topped by graded transparent plastic, going from clear to … More Monkey Business

Nudelicious

Today’s school-run shoes are a departure from my usual brightly coloured footwear, being as they are a pair of nude Carvela heels from the Kurt Geiger store in Brighton. They incorporate hidden platforms under the balls of the feet, which make walking more pleasant. But I’d be kidding if I said they were my most … More Nudelicious

Bandolino Beauties

Today’s pointed red patent school-run shoes are by Bandolino, and I bought them second hand for £10 from an eclectic Saturday market in Brighton. They don’t show any cheeky toe-cleavage (a style I prefer), but still: Bargain!
