I was hoping the new season would deliver more interesting vegan shoes on my favourite hidden designer shoe trove, Payless, but I was decidedly unimpressed with most of what I saw.
I did like these, though, by Christian Siriano. They’re simple classics with a cool croc skin like pattern but with an interesting twist in the shape of that woven midsole feature that looks very much like rope. Add to that the peep toe, 4″ heel and hidden platorm and you’ve got yourself one sexy and unusual shoe that’s nonetheless versatile and smart. Not too smart, though, the woven bit makes it a bit more casual and quite summery, which is fine by me.
You can get these from Payless.
