|Look how sad I am! Aha. This is all that is left of my beloved spiked black flats :'(|
Now I have the issue of only having boots and brown flats, which is a massive issue because I LIVE in my black flats, and I loved them :( However I have now realised how many lovely black flats there are at the moment on the internet! So I thought I would share with you my top ten that I have found, and you could maybe help me choose which ones to purchase! :D So here are my Top Ten Casual Black Flats!
|Not all strictly black, but dark enough with enough black detailing to count ^_^|
1). Macho lace up navy patent suede, £45: These smart 'proper' shoes are beautiful! I love the mixed textures, and the Navy tones. These shoes are technically from the 'androgynous' trend, but, as a pair of nice smart day-time shoes, they would just as well with a pretty winter floral dress with thick tights!
2). Eclipse 2 buckle black pu black croc, £50: Similar to the first pair, these are also 'proper' shoes! Although these shoes I think are more from the current Gothic trend. I personally love buckles at the moment, and the crocodile panel over the top of the foot makes these shoes look very well made, and a bit different.
From New Look:
3). Black Pointed Brogues,
4). Purple Cosmic Print Lace Up Trainers,
5). Maveriq Tartan Stud Slippers, £32: I am a sucker for a studded shoe, the aforementioned broken shoes being my second pair!! I doooo like tartan, and I think this is actually quite a subtle tartan as well! This would be a good replacement as it is sticking to the M.O. of a studded slipper style shoe, but being patterned is a bit new and different! ... However they may not go with everything, which black does....
6). Mouse Patent Toe Cap Slip Ons, £30: I am not really sure what colour these shoes are! I think they are a dusky teal with a black cap toe. These shoes are pretty standard flats, but the two tone, pointy toe and toe cap make these shoes stand out to me as a nice take on a classic flat.
7). Maths Black Leather Brogues, £30: I have always anted a pair of brogues, and these are a very nice, and surprisingly inexpensive pair! I also love how they are matte black as opposed to patent. These are deffo at the top end of my top ten :P
From River Island:
8). Black Studded Slipper Shoes, £28: These would also be good clean replacement shoes, as they are also slipper-style, black and studded. Also the mini heel, black studding and focus of the studs just over the toes make them different from my original pair. These are very subtle, and I really like these!
9). Black Quilted Flatform Shoes, £25: These are a very nice pair of flatforms methinks! I love the quilting! Also the metal heel makes them a lil bit special.
10). Black Snake Studded Slipper Shoes, £45: Personally, I find these shoes EPIC! Not only are they snakeskin, but they are studded! Not only are they studded, but the studs are excessively spiky! ahaha! I do love them, but I do worry about the practicality of them. Saying that, I really like the actual shape of the shoe. They are like a 'proper shoe' take on slipper-style shoes! They look well made and like they will last as well; but for £45 you would hope so!
