ASOS have got to be the king of affordable fashion forward footwear right now. The shoes above range from as little as £18 right up to a very reasonable £70, how can you go wrong? While the shapes might not necessarily be breaking any boundaries, it's some of the fabrications that are really winning it for me. The one thing I really wanted while I was shopping for sandals the other day was a pair of silver sliders, and while I managed to find a perfect pair in the womens section of Office (which would have, of course, been too small for me), I had no luck in any of the mens shoe departments. Well ASOS have made my dreams come true with these metallic beauties, and not only that, they have some amazing iridescent shoes for guys too. ASOS are really nailing mens summer footwear so go check them out.
I think I died and went to heaven when I discovered this brand. In the brands own words - Monster shoes are designed for individuals who don't give a fuck about the world’s opinion in terms of their lifestyle choices including their fashion style. Monster shoes knows no sex, no limits, no rules, just pure fashion bliss, and it is through this ethos that they have created the most covetable range of genderless shoes my eyes have ever had the pleasure of seeing. Being genderless, the shoes have a slightly unusual sizing system, as mens and womens sizes tend to be different, so you need to measure your food to find your shoe size. Although a bit more expensive, most shoes come it at around the £100 mark, with none going over £200. And you can't deny it's worth paying that little bit extra for such amazing designs. My only problem would be knowing which pair to pick! My favourites are above, but there are so many more amazing designs on their website, they definitely have something for anyone and everyone who wants to make a statement with their shoes.
Dr Martens current campaign proudly shouts the phrase 'Stand For Something'. Dr Martens has a long-standing history of creating high-quality comfortable shoes and boots, originally adopted by the punks, the fashion pack has now welcomed them into the mix, and Dr Marten's has reacted by creating some gorgeously fashionable, wardrobe staples. I still have my Geraldo sandals from last year, which I guarantee I'll be getting a lot of wear out of again this year, but the Brelade sandal above is a great update if you want a lower sandal, which is a bit more on-trend this season. Also the Lester shoe above, which is part of the crafted collection, is exclusively made from black flecked melange silk by the Stephen Walters & Sons silk company, can you get more luxurious than that?! So what do I stand for? I stand for well designed, affordable shoes that make you feel good regardless of your gender.
