schuh-2011.jpgWe may be bracing ourselves for an onslaught of sleet, snow and general shivering from tomorrow till well into next year, but this morning Ms. Shoewawa and friends were sipping cool drinks on deckchairs at Schuh's spring/summer showcase for 2011! Every one of the shoes has an infectious summery vibe, and we found ourselves chatting about where we wanted to go on our summer holidays as we browsed the range.

A few things really stood out about this collection: first of all, there was barley a gladiator in sight; a development that will come as a relief to at least % of you. Instead, there was an abundance of floral patterns, espadrilles (including some fun new prints in the TOMS range), lightweight loafers in summer colours and cute, mad-men style kitten heels with a fashion edge. We also loved the sunb nosed YSL-style platform heels, which come in three yummy colours.

Roll on summer!
