Tuesday Shoesday – Nature’s footwear

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve had a few photos of shoes sent to me which have a common theme – natural materials. It started with these heels made from coral. I can’t help but think that ‘real’ coral might be a little too delicate for a full day of wear – and I imagine they would come with a weight limit for fear of the holey-heels snapping.

Another natural shoe I’ve been sent is this bark-and-wood wedge. A slightly more sensible shoe, but certainly not the kind of thing I’d like to slip my feet into – I can still remember the trend for wooden clogs back in the 90s, and I’m not going to be restricting my foot movement and stomping clumpily around like that again! Plus, I think this shoe looks kind of like a horse’s hoof and is that really a good look?

I have however found a nice selection of shoes on the high street that include the trend for natural materials, including cork wedges, wooden heels and raffia detail from Debenhams, Faith, Barratts and Dune. And keep an eye out for more of this kind of rustic styling appearing on spring/summer footwear – soon there will be raffia soles galore in the bargain stores like Primark and Peacocks ready for the summer holiday season, so you can get the look for under a tenner!
