Years and years ago, in an attempt to wean him off his Nike Air Max addiction, I bought Mr Brogue a pair of high tops from a brand called Clae which I found in Size? on Carnaby Street. And it worked: shortly after that point he started mixing it up by wearing Clarks desert boots again, and a few years later he got heavily in Grenson. I’ve got nothing against Nike Air Max but you know, variety is the spice of life.
Anyway, I had never thought of Clae for myself but this week I discovered that they do some lovely styles for women. Admittedly, not all of their styles go down to smaller sizes, but I’m rather taken with this pair in a shade of, you guessed it, Millennial pink! Or pickled ginger, as you know I prefer to call it. You can see the full collection at clay.eu.
Also, while we are on the subject of Size?, I’ve heard some exciting news about the store which I will be able to share with you soon!
3 of the best…striped shoes
Not that I’m saying you can’t be jaunty in the winter, but as the end of the summer draws near I’m increasingly feeling the need to wear colour on my feet before it turns cold. I even painted my toenails bright yellow yesterday which I have to say, I’m still not sure about. These striped shoes though? I’m into it.
