I really love these pretty canvas ballerines from new Australian shoe label Oliver & Co. An Antipodean reader kindly alerted me to them (I think she was trying to purge her guilt at having bought four pairs), as she thought they might be up my street and down my road. And she was right. They are.
They aren’t exactly inexpensive — $149 AUS is about £95, but at least you know they won’t be ubiquitous like those other Australian exports, the Ughs. Made from printed textiles, ribbons and laces they seem very cheering. Oh & Oliver & Co do ship internationally too.
