This is something I used to do when I had more time – each Friday I would round up the shoes news for the week so you lot are totally up-to-date with anything exciting I’ve heard about flats that you need to know. So I’m bringing it back! Yay! Every Friday I’ll round-up all the new releases, shoe gossip (yes, that’s a thing) and plus other stuff I’ve discovered on my travels each week.
Converse launches ‘Holiday Nude’ collection
In a collaboration with Office, Converse has released a line of Chuck Taylor All Star high tops and lows in soft, muted colours. Yes folks, pickled ginger is back! This shade is actually called ‘amberlight gold’ and there is a similar pinky shade of ‘rose tan‘; there is also a lovely chalky white called ‘Egret’ and a ‘Powder Blue’. These are leather, and there are also grey and pink suede options, all with a tonal toe cap and sole to match the colour of the shoe. From £59.99, office.co.uk.
UPDATE: I know lots of people have found this post in the United States and are interested in buying. I have checked with the brand and sadly the Converse Holiday Nude collection will NOT be available to buy in the United States. However, it looks like Office do ship to the USA for a charge of around £30. There are some restrictions on which brands they ship but this doesn’t look to include Converse.
Norman Walsh’s FAB Craftsman Project trainers have finally gone on sale!
You may remember that I was lucky enough to get my hands on a couple of pairs of these a few months ago, and I know a lot of you rather liked them. Each style has a heritage fabric – like Harris Tweed – incorporated into the shoe. If Norman Walsh is a new brand to you, you can have a read about its fascinating history here. Available from later TODAY! £115, normanwalsh.com
Exciting collaboration with ME!
OK, so I can’t tell you everything about this until tomorrow (so watch this space) but I am thrilled to have done a collaboration with a gorgeous boots brand which will be available to buy next week. They’re beautiful and I’m really REALLY excited about them. I’ll be revealing more details – including the brand! – tomorrow morning. Until then, here’s a pic to whet your appetite.
