Shoe Tube: Kurt Geiger's Marcella sandals spotted
Sometimes, our best style recommendations come not from friends, advertisements or magazine - but from what we see in our daily lives - often on public transport. This morning, while riding into work on a very hot and crowded Piccadilly Line train, I spied a rather wonderful pair of studded sandals: they immediately jumped out at me as being something I'd love to wear:
Our commuter had teamed the simple shoes with a cute printed dress and leather jacket, for the perfect door-to-desk combination of cool practicality and class - and I just had to track them down!
A small amount of research later, and I'd identified the shoes as Kurt Geiger 'Marcella' sandals in the chestnut brown leather edition. There is also a black version, and I'm incredibly tempted to bag them...
These shoes combine simple sandal styling with just the right amount of eye-catching glamour provided by a neat row of rounded-off studs that sit along the edges of the straps. A little like the classic school shoes we all wore as kids but given a grown-up make-over, these are the perfect everyday flatties to see you through the summer: practical and easy to wear but with a real touch of class. It's easy to see why our commuter chose to wear them en route into town.
