I love a fugly shoe. I’m talking obnoxious colours. A shit-tonne of tassels. Fringing, everywhere. And embellishments that are so heavy, it’s an effort to lift your foot. The good news is there are a whole heap that tick those boxes for summer and I’ve done you the favour of rounding them all up in one easy shopping list. You can thank me later.
River Island, Flower Applique Espadrille Sliders, £30.
How adorable are these? The espadrille platform. The cute, layered applique flowers. The hot red. Yes, please.
Soludos, Multi Pom Pom Tassel Mule, £103.
I can’t deal with these. These are filling me with so much joy, look at the colours. Pom poms and tassels. Oh hell yeah! The only thing that’s putting me off is the scary price tag.
Kurt Geiger, Metallic Rainbow Stripe Flat Mule, £139.
Hot diggity damn, I need me a pair of these metallic rainbow shoes of brilliance. I’d wear them all day and all night, removing them only when they slid off my feet due to sweat.
& Other Stories, Embellished Slip On Sandals, £69.
Embellished, beaded florals on a simple black, flat mule. Classy, sophisticated and blooming pretty.
Topshop, Heather Tassel Sandals, £26.
My cousin sent me these because she knows two things about me. One, I like a clashing colour statement like orange and pink. Two, tassels are my jam.
ASOS Design, Florina Embellished Mules, £28.
What do you get when you mix jacquard with sequin flowers and embroidered patches? These badass kicks.
Kurt Geiger, Peacock Feather Embellished Flat Mule, £129.
I. Want. These. So. Badly. I. Can’t. Even. Deal.
Lost Ink, Multi Fringe Flat Sandals, £40.
I’ve just counted eight rows of fringing in three different colours and that makes me happy beyond belief. Basically, every single inch of shoe is covered in fringe. Amen to that.
Adidas, Adilette Slides, £45.
Ok, Ok, so while these don’t fit the initial bill I happen to LOVE slides and these are all fuzzy and delicious.
Which would you choose?
