Vintage Vivienne Westwood Aqua Shoes

This is a bit of a daft post I know, but I have something in mind which I want to wait and see if I get before I wear these in an outfit post, but I could resist sharing!┬á Of course I like the style but it was the colour that really sold these shoes to me, it is the most enticing shade of aqua, just as inviting as the sea and since I won’t be seeing any of that this summer I may as well look at a pretty pair of shoes. This is my favourite colour right now, could I be getting into the summer spirit? I have a sudden longing for bright colours. I thought this might be a hard colour to find other shoes in but I actually found quite a few pairs, these Rupert SandersonNissa‘ wedges are incredible, perfect for cocktails at a beach-side bar. Whilst for those of you who don’t want to defy gravity and prefer flat shoes might like these Robert Clergerie ‘Ayane‘ ballet pumps.

My shoes come from the Vivienne Westwood ‘Tied to te Mast’ collection S/S1998. The bent heel is characteristic of the collection and was used on sandals with diamontie encrusted heels, buckled court shoes and even pirate boots. Check out this Flame pair I saw at the Vivienne Westwood shoe exhibition. So amazing!

  1. Love it! The leather looks so soft. I need to get my yellow ones topy’d, I have a hard time wearing mine with just the thin sole at the ball of the foot.

    • I’ve not had a proper wear of them outside yet, I was surprised how nice a fit they are for a pointed shoe plenty of room!
