I've recently been sorting out my clothes and shoes and resigning myself to the fact that I'm a long way from being in my twenties and some of the shoes I used to wear, and as such have had to recycle more than fifteen pairs of shoes which no longer fit. I like shoes and this made me quite unhappy indeed!
However, rescue came in the shape of the ECCOshoes which was sent to me for review. To me ECCO shoes have always been about practicality and comfort first and foremost, a must nowadays for a busy mum on the move. However, as The Boy gets older I've realised that I'm not just a mum, I'm also a woman who is only in her thirties, and I want a bit of style back, especially when it comes to my obsession of shoes.
Therefore I was more than happy to try the Sculptured 65 pair of shoes. Called the 65 because they have a 65mm high heel but a cushioned sole with an excellent fit that supports the arch. This is excellent news for me as I tend to suffer with plantar fasciitis (an inflammation of the arch ligaments) and I need something that offers strong support. I like a chunky heel on my boots and shoes, and in these I have that; chunky yet tapered and made from a material which offers the same 'shock absorption' in a shoe as a pair of sports trainers.
The best thing about these is how adaptable they are. As you can see above, when worn with jeans they look like a boot but without the added heat factor!
I've decided to style these shoes in three ways; three different looks using the ECCO Sculptured 65.
Smart styling, ideal for work: bootleg trousers and a chiffon top.
Casual styling, great for the weekend with the family: wide-leg jeans and a sequinned jumper.
Party wear: skinny trousers and a black, studded tunic.
So, here's my question to you: how would you style this shoe?
