Venetia Red Suede Shoes
There’s an undeniable elegance to Venetia whilst at the same time it’s definitely a shoe with va va voom! The almost antique looking gold flowers on the front give the shoe a certain sophistication, whilst the strappy ankle tie at the back add a touch of old school glamour. We like to wear them wrapped around the ankle and tied at the front- the tassels look really cute that way. It’s not as complicated as it might look to do, as the straps are pre-looped so all you have to do is put your foot through and pull them tight before tying them how you want- for a different option just go around your ankle once and tie in a larger, loose looking bow. However you decide to style them, Venetia is definitely one of the more dramatic styles in the collection, and the kind of shoe you can make the centrepiece of an understated outfit.
Venetia is actually the result of two designs, which we ended up combining into one, rather fabulous shoe. We’d designed a simple one strap sandal with the ankle ties, and another with the 3D flowers on the front but with a more simple back. We absolutely loved the strappiness of the first sample but felt it needed a little extra something, so we thought we’d try it with the flowers. Initially we weren’t sure it would work, but whilst the result is definitely something a little different, it’s not too much. And despite its distinctive design it’s surprisingly versatile, and you can wear it just as easily to dress up a pair of jeans as you can to that special occasion.
Fits true to size, take your regular size.
