|Neosens Rococo 769. Tempting, so tempting!|
I’ve been toying with getting some by Neosens, a Spanish brand (Sarenza stock them in the UK.). The ‘Rococo’ styles have a heel that would work very well with a deco look. The leather is tooled and rather more 18th century than my usual style, but I’m thinking they could also work with my more steampunky outfits. The down side is they’re not cheap, and I’d have to get them via mail order, which I’m reluctant to do as it could result in an expensive mistake. If I don’t go for Neosens, Aris Allen looks like my best bet.
I like the styles of the early 20th century because they have a little heel (I do have a very inelegant, ducklike way of walking with my feet out when I wear flats, a bit like the English geese in The Aristocats, only without the wiggle!). However, they’re usually not so high as to be painful by the end of the day, and the Louis heel helps balance the weight so it’s not all on the ball of the foot.
Have you seen any fab deco-inspired shoes lately? I’d love to hear of some available in the UK. Just about every blogger I read is better at finding shoes than I am!
