minna parikka2.jpgI was stopped in my tracks while out shopping yesterday; mesmerised by a pair of these incredibly striking high heeled brogues by quirky designer Minna Parikka.

You need to see these shoes up close to really appreciate their beauty (click on the thumbnail for a bigger picture), as I think it's the contrast of the shiny, cherry red leather against the puckered, lizard effect tan uppers that accounts for a lot of their charm. Minna Parikka shoes are currently only available in the UK in a few London boutiques, but if you can afford the £198 price tag, getting there should not be a problem!
