Wednesday Wants: Blue suede shoes

Elvis Blue Suede Shoes

 

OK, so I’m a big Elvis fan. And I’m just as big a fan of shoes. Ergo…..I clearly need me some blue suede shoes!

I suppose a small obsession began when I first saw The Shoe Embassy stall at Old Spitalfields Market…they have the most wonderful collection and it happens to include some super lush blue suede numbers. And ever since, I’ve spotted different pairs here and there and thought how much I *want* some….although them not being the most practical choice I’ve yet to make a purchase.

Still, this feature is all about *wants* and not *needs* so here’s a round up of blue suede shoes I’d like to add to my shoe rack…..

 

Shoe Embassy, Al Capone in Indigo, £55

These are the ones that started it all off! I actually have a pair in the Amber which is a gorgeously versatile tan shade. They are super comfy and go with anything. I love the cross between brogue and pixie boot! Now I just need their blue counterparts!

For a more boyish, less pixie-like brogue though, I’m loving these, also from Shoe Embassy. They’re adorably vintage looking, but with (if my other Shoe Embassy brogues are anything to go by!) the benefit of incredible comfort and seriously hard wearing.

Hello! How gorgeous are these?! The shade is amazing, as is that beautiful detail at the vamp. I adore the heel and vintage feel of these. Imagine them with a wiggle dress at a wedding or cocktail party! Lush!

Clarks, Chorus Thrill in Navy, £50

If that vibrant indigo isn’t your bag, these navy stunners are a treat. I love a t-bar, and not just because it reminds me of dressing up in my Nanna’s shoes from the fifties as a little girl…they are mega practical and comfy to boot!

J. Crew, Lowell Boots in Dark Navy, Regular calf £298.00 / Extended Calf £318.00

Now what could be lovelier than a pair of stunning blue suede *boots* I hear you cry! Well, a pair of blue suede boots that will actually fit your legs in, that’s what! These J. Crew boots are all kinds of wonderful….they have that Puss In Boots appeal for sure, and I think they’d look amazing with a tweed mini skirt. Plus they’re available in two calf sizes, so that those of us with normal sized legs can get in them! Love!

J. Crew Collection, Lace-Up Houndstooth Pumps, £398

And saving the best till last…..how about these?!?! I literally gasped when I saw these. Look at that hounds tooth panel! Look at the pointy blue toe! And the laces! I die.
