Senso shoes are pure footwear architecture, and this striking design for the spring summer 2013 collection is now available to buy in Topshop:

Topshop willow wedge sandals


Priced at £100, they're a sure way to make a statement this summer, with their brutally cut-out heel section and thick, block straps. At the front, there is an open cork section, giving just a small nod to the type of footwear we'd expect to see around us in summer: the 'nude' wooden heel, meanwhile, helps to create a very on-trend monochrome look. 

What I love most about these shoes is how every little detail has been carefully considered: the size of the zip, the choice of materials - yet the resulting shoe is so simple and pure looking. While Scandi-chic remains huge, a pair of statement sandals in this style will make a great asset to your footwear arsenal, and you'll look forward to opportunities to wear it - either with lengthy skirts or cropped trousers.
