AOTW: Cut-Out Brogues: Spring’s ‘It’ Flattie

Who else is excited about the arrival of Spring? The birds are singing, blossom is on the trees, the Sun is appearing on a weekly basis. And it’s also my birthday season. All is right with the world.

And even better, one of my favourite AW shoes has been reinvented for Spring. Yes, according to Look, the ‘It’ shoe to be looking out for is the cut-out brogue.

I’m not normally one to cave to an ‘It’ trend but I’m such a fan of brogues that I’ll make an exception. They follow on nicely from the cut-out ankle/biker boot that was in various magazines over AW13 and look ideal for those of us not ready for sandals quite yet. Or those of us who don’t like flashing our toes full stop. Furthermore, as Look says, they’re ‘the perfect balance between mannish cool and girlie pretty’… well, the pastel brogues they feature are girlie, the one above maybe not. But I do love a chunky sole. 

So, next time I’m near a decent shoe shop that stocks size 8 I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for a pair of these beauts. Thank you Look for putting them in my line of sight.
