PAYDAY SPECIAL: The ‘It’ Shoe You Need Now

It’s nearly payday so that means it’s officially time to give your shoe-drobe a new season chic-over with the hottest trend on the high street (and our Instagram feeds), the white-soled brogue.

Inspired by the menswear movement, these flats are all about the lace-up fronts and chunky white soles, in metallic sheens, pretty pastels and suede finishes.

We first cottoned onto this footwear phenomenon thanks to the hoards of social media fanatics posting proud pics of their newly purchased flatties, and now we’ve noticed an invasion on the high street, too. From Topshop’s holographic beauties to Office’s dove grey, lacewing versions, our trusty shopping haunts have got this one well and truly covered.

Wear with rolled-up jeans and a basic tee for everyday cool, or pop on a pair of ankle socks and rock with skater skirts and girly dresses. Not only will these hero buys last a lifetime, they’ll also give you round-the-clock comfort. Sounds like a no brainer to us!

So stash those killer heels for now, and show off your soles. Trust us, your accessory arsenal has never looked better.

Tip: Channel the style set by teaming with cropped trousers and leaving ankles bare.
