Mary Jane Monday: McQ Alexander McQueen
We've got an entirely different class of Mary Jane shoe for you in today's MJ Monday, coming to you from the House of Alexander McQueen and recently seen on the likes of Chloe Moretz and other youthful celebs. We reckon you could get away with the shoes a little later in life too (which is probably lucky when you consider that most15-year-olds could ill afford the £350 price tag: if you can they are available via Net-a-Porter.
We can certainly see why the style has become popular among edgy dressers, as this is a clever combination of the scooped-out heel (echoing the more hardcore heel-free styles seen on the Alexander McQueen catwalk) and the preppy, brogue-style shoes that we're seeing almost everywhere else. The studs around the edge give them a summery clog-like appeal too.
Thick straps add a certain schoolgirl charm that will never go out of style, and for those who struggle with super-tall shoes, will provide extra security and comfort.
