There’s an almost unanimous vote for mannish shoes this spring. Every variation on tomboy dressing from brogues to loafers, from brothel creepers to slippers, has been plundered and made our own. New for summer is how thoroughly girly these shoes can be. Think of a dandy slipper in baby pink, a swanky Oxford laced-up with grosgrain ribbon, or a rough-tough sandal recast as something slim and elegant. The message is clear - what’s comfortable and classic isn’t reserved for men any more. And what’s made for him usually looks better on us!

  • The strap’s raw edges keep things modern and clean.
  • Cut-outs in clothes and shoes are super cool right now. These ones are angled to look more feminine.

'These shoes are so comfortable - I could walk around in them all day!'

'I'm wearing them with a 50s style white leather skirt which I've teamed with a 70s style crochet and suede top. I love mixing pieces from different eras.'

'I've always loved shoes and thought I had about 30 pairs but when I counted it turned out to be 76... I was so shocked!'

'Stories is one of the most popular bars on Broadway Market. I think it's because we have live bands and DJs several times a week, art exhibitions... and we serve the best cocktails!'
