WORDS BY FLORENCE TROTT
Shoes to fall in love with this Valentine’s day, whatever your relationship status.
Hollywood try to sell us the idea that Valentine’s Day is about champagne, red roses and silk bed sheets. We see through the clichés. Footwear fanatics know that really, it’s just an excuse to dress up in a pair of really sexy shoes. Chocolates are so last year. Instead, treat yourself to a pair of glittering Manolo Blahnik stilettos or wild Amina Muaddi mules. Whether you’re wildly in love, on the edge of romance, or looking forward to a date night on Zoom with your BFF, find your sole mate with our edit of seductive heels and romantic flats. Love isn’t cancelled, and nor are great shoes.
DINNER FOR TWO
A candle lit dinner for two. A table laid with white linen and a bowl of spaghetti à deux. Restaurant or not, romance isn’t dead, and Mach and Mach are here to prove it – with lashings of crystals and the prettiest pink satin, all tied up in a bow.
SHOP DINNER DATE SHOES
Another date night on the sofa? Miu Miu and Malone Souliers are here to turn up the heat on your lockdown love story. Change into something more comfortable with ballet flats and diminutive mules by Roger Vivier and Sergio Rossi. Be still our beating hearts!
SHOP SEXY HOME SHOES
Whether you’re holed up with a hot housemate or hitting up the local pizzeria for carbs and red wine with a new romantic interest, a pair of sexy boots will guarantee that love is in the air. Thigh high Gianvito Rossis and shining pink Paris Texas heels are our boots of choice for maximum sex appeal.
SHOP SULTRY BOOTS
This goes out to all the shoe lovers. They may not be able to see your spectacular Amina Muaddi heels over Zoom, but you know they’re there. And girl, do they look spectacular. Seize the opportunity to wear crystal-embellished strappy sandals in February (without getting cold feet) and get dressed up with the help of Aquazurra and a bottle of crémant for one.
