Shoe Porn: Hobbs

When summer ends and the cool/wet weather starts to set in i always find myself struggling with my footwear. I spend my summers in flats and sandals, all very pretty but quite insubstantial, so as soon as the rain starts i find myself at a loss at what to wear on my feet. I usually end up in clumpy flat boots or wellies, which I find a bit sad. Don't get me wrong, I love my faithful boots and wellies but it would be nice to be able to wear something with a touch more glamour. Because I have been searching far and while for autumn/winter footwear and I thought I'd share my favourite finds with you all :)

First up on my search for shoes is a selection from Hobbs:

NW3 Admirals Bow Contrast Courts

I really love these court shoes, the heel is nice and fat so these could be worn comfortably for daywear (well maybe not everyday but still!) plus I think the navy blue colour is beautiful. I think they are perfect if you're interested in trying to achieve a 1940s look as they're heavily vintage inspired (as is the case with a great deal of Hobbs products). And they're nice and shiny and there's still a little bit of a child in me who gets a thrill from shiny new shoes :) Here's a more detailed look at the bow:


My next favourite from Hobbs are these gorgeous leopard print court shoes:

Blaise Platform Courts

I've been hankering after a pair of leopard print heels for such a long time and these are just stunning. I think they'd probably be a bit high for me for really frequent use (my feet wouldn't forgive me!) but they look study enough to clump about in during the day as well as on an evening out. I really do love everything about them, especially their texture. Plus I'm a firm believer that leopard print goes with everything so I should be able to wear these all the time :) Here's a little close up for your viewing pleasure:


And finally I think these little shoe-boots are sweet: 

Morella Cross Bar Court

Once again they are very vintage influenced (and as I will never be able to get actual vintage shoes in my size these kind of discoveries are always worth having!) and they have a nice study low heels which would be perfect for daywear in the winter whilst still looking chic :) I think that the buckle detail really makes this design, it's so pretty and softens the look a great deal. Basically I like them! Here's a close up of that lovely buckle:


If I could I would buy a pair of every one of these shoes, unfortunately at about £150 per pair that won't be happening anytime soon, but it's nice to dream isn't it? :) I'm not totally averse to spending a lot of money of shoes, but in order for me to hand over my hard earned cash the shoes in question must be perfect, so the shoe search continues!

Join me again soon for some more gorgeous footwear and more Birthday themed posts.

Bye for now!

I know exactly what you mean, I was actually back in ankle boots last night due to the storms! Loving all these shoes, esp the first ones - just got vintage Hobbs loafers in a charity shop so may have to check out their recent collections! :)
