Shoes are in many ways architectural. Shoes house your feet like an office building houses your work space, or a garage houses your mode of transport. But the best shoes are not only architectural in a functional sense, they’re so in an aesthetic one. They can house your feet like a lofty villa houses a warm summer getaway, or like a plush hotel hosts your feelings of relaxed luxury.
If I’m to carry on with the footwear-as-structure analogy, I’d be concluding that Victoria Spruce’s shoes are like ultra-modern, ultra-cool bachelor pads. The kind that were built in the 1950s or 1960s with a futuristic vision. In soft peppermint or beige particularly, with their curling heels like cleanly modern winding staircases and their kitchen-appliance finishes, they’re like the kind of house you want to party in, even if not to settle down in for life.
From flats to wedges to knee-high boots – Victoria Spruce gives shoes a new twist. Literally.
