Style on Trial: Menswear inspired lace-up shoes


We’re just going to come right out and say it: we hate the current trend for flat, menswear-style lace-up shoes. There, it’s out there, you can do what you will with it. To us, these kind of shoes say two things:

OK, so that was more than two things, but we’re sure you get the picture. Of course, we know that this style of shoe isn’t being worn by either of the two groups above… well, maybe it is, but it’s also being worn by stylish young things, just like our Fashion Police readers. Or is it? Have you been buying into the menswear-influenced shoe craze? What have you been wearing them with?

(Oh, and if you like the shoes in the picture, they’re £35 from Topshop).
