Please don't ask me to explain why, but I've got a bit of an obsession with pineapples at the moment: pineapple prints, pineapples on kitchen towels and flirty dresses, pineapples in my drink...I just love 'em! So I'm always delighted when the prickly fruit makes an appearance on footwear...

These aptly-named 'Pina Colada' shoes by Aquazzura are some of the most simple and minimalist you could possibly imagine, but seen from behind they are anything but plain: a spiky appliqued pineapple with golden leaves sprouts from the heel, creating a perfect point-of-interest at the back and making full use of the current trend for high-backed heels. 

In fact, the effect is so awesome that one single picture of these sandals does not do them justice: check them out from a reverse angle:

Swit-SWOO. What a dazzling finish! And the tiny pineapple logo underneath the heel is just adorable.
