Move over Don Johnson…Tracey’s in town. 

I got new shoes …

Yay * high fives the air*

White ones !

😐

I’ve never gone down the white shoes route before … you know being a mucky child. Then a mucky adult.

Even mum expressed concern… “white shoes Tracey , really, really? … you know how heavy you are on your feet?

She has a point, I’m not the best. I do attract muck!

I have a pair of white Adidas SuperStars that are hardly Insta worthy. While most people keep theirs in pristine condition mine are worn and worn to death. Covered in mud and splurges of grey paint!

That aside when Shoetique approached me and asked if I’d like to choose a pair of shoes to review I jumped at the chance and these jumped out at me!

I lovingly call them my ‘Don Johnson’ babies. 

Sony Crockett would have loved them! 

I actually googled Miami Vice shoes for a giggle not expecting to find much BUT low and behold who knew there would be pages devoted to their footwear! Half an hour later I was still sat reading engrossed in all things white shoes…  

Welcome into my world and the wacky way my head works … fashion shouldn’t be so serious. It should be fun! 

I was after a pair of comfy flats for the up and coming summer months.

Shoetique are a fairly local company based in Hale, Cheshire. They offer a whole range of shoes for men, women and children. Brands include Clarkes, Joules wellies, Fitflop and Gabor. Easy to access with everything under one roof and something for everybody.

If you order your shoes before 8.00pm they offer next day delivery. They give free exchanges and easy returns. Perfect.

The shoes I choose are from the brand Rieker and retail at £59.95

They are so comfortable [ think slipper comfy] which could be down to the fact they are ‘anti-stress’

They have a cushioned insole and a tiny 0.5 inch heel giving that little height boost if you like your flats flat …but not that flat ! [Not that I need it at 5ft 10.]

I’m partial to a loafer and these ticked all the right boxes. Slip on, slip off. I recon they’ll look great with jeans, capri pants, shorts and cute with pretty sun dresses. Hey maybe even a white suit !

You can never fail with white and tan it looks great with denim , brown, navy, pink. The options are endless.

I’ve only managed to wear them once since I received them. The weathers not been that great has it?

White shoes and rain is a serious no no. They cry out for sunshine. Something we seriously lack in this country!

In all their glory …
This is how I wore them for a smart-casual look a few weeks ago [above]

  • Jeans – Seven Jeans
  • Blouse – Boo Hoo // similar HERE
  • Bag – Dune // similar HERE
  • Belt – Marks & Spencer’s

And a potential outfit courtesy of a little sundress I’ve had for years from Missguided with my mums vintage suede handbag.

This handbag actually swung in the 60’s!!

I’m hoping the weather turns for the better soon and I to get to wear them again. I can then venture outside [ go chase some bad guys ]  and take some more ‘look books’ to share with you lovely lot.

In the meantime I’ll just sit and mess with flatlays and dream of sunnier days…

I like that  ‘Miami Vice’ feeling.

Shoes that make me smile can never be a bad thing can it?

Until next time, Tracey x

    they’re look really comfortable. I need to admit that I’m also not a fan of white shoes but those ones look great. Thanks for linking up to #globalblogging
