carvela-hyper2.jpgIt's often unclear why a shoe is given a particular name, but that's certainly not so in the case of these 'Hyper' platform sandals by Carvela! They're essentially a pair of ordinary tan courts that have caught a serious case of carnival fever, and just want to party in the sun!

There isn't quite as much neon on shoes as we were seeing a year ago, but this blending of a classic tan with crazy brights is a more grown-up take on the look which I certainly approve of. £120 at Kurt Geiger
