Sometimes, the high street just gets it right. And you know who’s getting it right right now? Next. I know, I hadn’t looked in there for ages either. But when a pair of gorgeous red flats kept popping up on my Instagram feed I had to investigate further. And I found more than just shoes!
Next’s red slingbacks – which also come in black and white – are a firm favourite with fashion editors and bloggers Erica Davies, Hannah Lewis and Megan Ellaby. Megan wore hers for about a week straight she loves them so much; Erica has got them in white as well as red. And Hannah, well, Hannah introduced me to the amazing Vetements-style jeans she is wearing in her pic for InStyle, which are also from Next. THEY ARE ONLY £32!! Totally obsessed.
Anyway, back to the shoes. I got my hands on a pair so I could try them out for myself and I have to say, they’re really great. The leather’s not too stiff and they have a lovely squidgy insole. Plus they have a slightly 80s shape (mum, if you’re reading this, the same as those navy shoes you loved so much!) Oh and I haven’t even mentioned the price – they’re £38 (buy them here). That’s change from forty quid. Amazing.
There’s loads more on offer from Next at the mo too, have a look below for some of my fav flats.
