Burberry Shoes

With a company history going back to the mid-nineteenth century, Burberry embodies a very British notion of tradition and luxury as evidenced by the fairly conservative silhouettes of their pieces and the signature Burberry check print. However, the times they are a-changing, and a quick perusal of the Burberry shoe selection on the Nordstrom website yielded some surprisingly contemporary designs more in tune with Vans or Gucci than polo-playing, horse-racing, tea-drinking Brits. Here are some of my faves.

Mesh ankle strap sandal ($695). The bold, almost geometric construction is quite similar to Gucci's spring offerings, and the blatant sex appeal of this shoe is a definite departure from the conservative image Burberry is usually known for. Imagine how hot these shoes would look with an electric yellow or blue cocktail dress and a black patent clutch.



Stud plate pump ($595). I love how this shoe retains the classic and very versatile shape of the pointy-toed pump yet looks more modern with the studs. Wear these shoes with anything else you'd wear pointy-toed pumps with!



Check pointed toe flat ($450). Okay, seriously, I am so in love with this shoe it's not even funny. I admit I favour pointy-toed flats over round-toed ones; they seem dressier than dainty round-toed ballerina versions. I'm melting on the inside as I imagine how this shoe would look with opaque black tights and skirts in the fall or with wide-legged jeans. The fact that every neutral colour imaginable has been incorporated into the shoe (brown, tan, black, white, gray) means it'll go with anything and any handbag.



T-strap sandal ($595). I love how this shoe combines the very hot gladiator sandal trend of this season with a more modern vibe, making it versatile enough to transition beyond this season and be worn for years to come.



Icon check slip-on ($295). I have mixed feelings about these shoes. On one hand, I have a weakness for canvas slip-ons like my Kitsons because they're a casual, comfy wardrobe staple that looks great with jeans. On the other hand, knowing how much even the most pricey pair of Kitsons will set me back (just a little over $100), I can't help but think that I'm basically paying a premium for the Burberry print on what is otherwise a ho-hum Vans knockoff. I guess the plus side of this is that, again, that darn Burberry print has so many neutral shades in it you can wear these sneakers with anything.



Icon check lace-up sneaker, $295. Shameless Converse knockoff? Yes, but I'd be more inclined to buy these than the slip-ons if only because I already have slip-ons and I don't have any lace-up sneakers.

  1. Ooh those stud plate pumps would look great with that studded dress we were looking at the other day too - wasn't that Burberry Prorsum?

  3. Why would someone spend several hundred dollars on a pair of shoes that makes them look like a chav?

    Poor people wear what they can afford. If it's in desrepair, they're doing the best they can. To MOCK them and their shitty life with a gaudy and expensive version of their crappy footwear is poor taste; it's like watching Nordstrom's sell torn up flannel just because Kurt Cobain was wearing it.

    This gives me an idea, though. I think I'll record an album of music and sell a copy of it for $5,000. Given that $500 sneakers exist, there has to be someone out there who would buy it.

  7. It's superb, and cool update I think. I was wordless thinking how I can express my proper respect and praise. Beauty is always beauty. A perfect pair of shoes with lovely color combination can give a girl or woman attractive impression of course. I was so much pleased to see your beautiful shoes though the goal of my browsing today was to hunt some Adidas with modern and sophisticated color and designs. After trailing to the end, It seems I have to go for the three (Mesh ankle strap sandal, Stud plate pump, Check pointed toe flat) among your handsome collection. Love all apparently.
