Did you know that in the days of Louis XIV, only members of his court were allowed to wear red heels?!
Happily for us those days are long gone - which is particularly good news for those of us who have fallen in love with these amazing ankle boots by Laura Vita!
We're not sure if they make us think more of the Officers uniforms from War and Peace (can you imagine James Norton in a pair?!!), or perhaps they're more Adam Ant? Ok, perhaps these musings are somewhat fanciful, reflecting, no doubt the fact that we are completely smitten with these babies!
We should also add that every pair comes with replacement laces in case the ribbon-y look isn't for you. Plus here's a bit of feedback from our shops - if you're between sizes these come up big, so if you're between sizess we suggest go smaller rather than larger.
And last but nor least, in case you're wondering, the heel's about 7 cms. Oh yes, and this year we're also doing them in a rather fabulous red too!
