Brogues, Clarks and Disco

When you think of Clarks what image comes to mind? School shoes, right? More specifically being taken as a child to get your feet professionally fitted for Clarks  shoes. It’s a memory most of us have and one that we’ve carried with us and will probably pass onto our children too. Because let’s be honest no-one does a school shoe like Clarks.

So you can imagine my surprise and sheer delight when these brogues found their way to me. They ooze quality and style. The leather, the fit the insole, everything we’ve come to expect from Clarks but with the added bonus of them being on trend and fashion forward. Yes, Clarks! For once you can actually purchase a shoe that feels as amazing as it looks.

I’ve chosen a few of my favourites from the current women’s range to show you. I was drawn to the androgynous look of these shoes and couldn’t wait to try them on.ClarkstassleThe HOTEL CHIC in tobacco is my favourite. Described as chic meets casual in premium leather with tassel detailing to finish off the vintage influenced look. The perfect tailored slip on flats for this season, enhanced with Clarks Plus dual density cushioning for ultimate comfort. With it’s current on trend design it’s the perfect shoe to take you from school drop off to the office to dinner. It really is that versatile and adaptable. And the TASSEL! The tassel is everything I want to see it used more this season. The HOTEL CHIC brogue also comes in sexy black pony hair with a patented leather toe. Look here.IMG_1736

In the same buttery soft leather are these stylish flats called HOTEL DIVA in tobacco. Featuring an easy slip on elastic detail they really are the most comfortable and stylish shoe of the season. I’ve literally worn mine with everything and find the colour to be just that perfect shade of tan that is so easily adapted into your wardrobe palette.

They’re the same brogue style as the other two but these ones have the laces and the subtle metallic finish to them. I love their ability to add some wow factor to an outfit.ClarksmetallicIMG_1735

Try them for yourself, you’ll fall in love with them as much as I did. You can even go and have your feet professionally fitted too. Wonder if they still give you a lollipop at the end? X

    First of all, this collection “Hotel” is amazing. I bought the “Hotel diva” in silver and now I want the Disco. But I need some advice: do you take the same size? The fit is the same?
    If you can give me an answer to this really important question ^^, it will be great and really kind.

        I’m surprised by the speed of your reply, thank you! That’s kind.
        These shoes are just magical, I can’t explain why I’m so obsessed with them. And it’s true, Clarks surprised me too.
        Again, thanks 🙂
