Thumbnail image for vintage-mary-janes.pngMost of the Mary Janes we've featured on the site recently have been of the more conservative style, as made popular by Manolo Blahnik and recently re-visited by many a footwear fan. But Topshop have taken the look retro with these wonderfully decorative snake-effect heels, complete with tie-front fastening for a slight 1920s feel.

Faux-snakeskin is so hot it hurts right now, and we think these would be a great wardrobe ally for those times when you want to stand out just a little bit from the crowd. Best of all, they've slashed the cost of these shoes from £68 to a much more wallet-friendly £30 over at Topshop. We think this makes them a great Christmas treat for you!
