Along with vacuum packing all my woolly sweaters, coats, hats and scarves last week, I had a very enjoyable time switching over my shoes. Because there’s not much storage space in my London apartment, I keep out of season shoes in a huge box, hidden away in a cupboard. It’s like shoe Christmas doing the switchover, re-discovering the pairs I packed away some six months previously.
I also add in my new season buys to the mix and it always makes me laugh to see the difference between the two sets of shoes. In winter my footwear is almost all black, relieved only by the odd pop of scarlet or pink (photo above*). In summer I retire nearly all the black pairs, bar a few pairs of pointy toe stilettos.
So here are all those summer shoes in more detail, with stockists links if they are current season:
