Style on Trial: Topshop World Gold Rope Cork Wedges

Topshop world gold rope cork wedges

Hmmm. We’re not sure where we stand on these shoes. On the one hand, rope and cork are not the most elegant of materials from which to make shoes. Neither can we imagine rope is the most comfortable to wear. But then, recycling is where it’s at just now – if we want to save the planet we’ve got to learn to work with the raw materials available…

But joking aside, we think theses babies are just a teeny bit, well, ugly. But perhaps you disagree?

    I kinda like them :] I think with a nice white summer-y dress they could look really cute!

    I like them, too. Don’t know if I would like them based on their description, but the whole is much more than the sum of its parts in this case!

    hmm i kind of like them 🙂 And I agree with Bailey Ann – they’ll definitely go with a white summer dress or something equally sweet and summerish.

    Still, the rope part does not sound comfortable :/

    I also quite like them – they’d go well with the wide linen trousers that are around at the moment.
