Marc Jacobs' shy little slipper mouse has come out of hibernation and turned into an espadrille mouse! The cute critter that decorates so many of the designer's flat shoes looks adorable as part of a striped canvas summer shoe:

If you're dying to get a squeak in your step this summer, the espadrille mouse flats are £205, available from Matches. I think I actually prefer these to the originals, as they're just so summery and fun, I can imagine getting a huge amount of wear out of them what is, essentially, a 'novelty' shoe: the colour would make for easy-peasy matching, and the candy stripes would look great with denim and colour alike.

Like all shoes in Marc Jacobs' 'Mouse' series, these cute shoes come complete with wobbly eyes, rigid cord whiskers and a leather nose and ears. They are slightly raised on a demi flatform sole, decorated all round with natural raffia. Cute!
