flatform-mary-jane.pngNew in at Topshop this week is this heavy-soled Mary Jane style; a girlish take on the flatform look that's so popular in lace-up shoes and sandals at the moment. Available here for £62, 'Kaboodle' comes in either red or white patent, and has a stompy attitude you can't help but adopt as soon as you put them on your feet!

The flat Mary Jane has long been a popular style on the alternative scene, and regular visitors to Camden market or any other such venues will already be familiar with the racks and racks of heavy soled, single strap shoes that have been popular with the Goth crowd for years. Now the style has infiltrated the mainstream we can expect to see many more of these styles appearing on our high streets but do shop around and remember to check the alt shopping haunts - it might just save you some money.
