Stay one step ahead of the shoe-game with these Choos because, by the looks of the AW09 colour palettes, they'll be right on trend. Amazingly they're in the sale too! Reduced to £208 from £416. Half price! Winner, winner.

These retro platforms not only are in a gorgeous fruity coloured suede but they have a super 70s wooden heel -4.7 inches to be exact. Even if you're heel-shy the platform heel means you'll still be able to walk in these confidently and the adjustable buckle around the ankle will lend some much-need support. Ah, the wanders of a platform! They are just give, give, give.

These shoes are so playful and even though they have the signature summer peeptoe/slingback duo they won't be out of place come AW with a pair of thick opaques. I'd wear these with a colourful art-attack graphic shift (in my dream world it would have purple, blue and mustard yellow shades...) or go for colour blocking and pair it with an equally bright dress.

But if your not brave enough to spend a large chunk of your paypacket on fuschia footwear then there is the fail-safe black option. Either way, at half price it'd be cruel not to give them a nice new loving home!

Find them at Jimmy Choo.
