Shoe Tube: Commuting in shearling
The Piccadilly Line is holding on to its position as reigning champion in London's 'best dressed Tube line' stakes (nothing to do with it being the line that Ms. Shoewawa happens to live on, honest guv'!) and today we spotted another lovely pair of commuter footwear.
Zooming southbound into the West End was this very sturdy-looking pair of slate grey shearling boots and their owner, who had teamed them to great effect with a grey/green toned hobo bag by Orla Kiely. Look closely, and you can see that the boots have a killer heel that turns them from hiking boot clones to being a chic hybrid style. We salute their wearer for her clever camouflage into the grey surroundings of a winter morning in London, and also for her most excellent taste in boots! Usual Shoewawa stars will be awarded to anyone who can identify the brand.
Stop the presses! The shoes have been identified as Carvela's 'Shelley hiker boots' in grey, which you can pick up for £150 at John Lewis.
