I’m a bit late to hop on this bit of news, mostly because I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to say, but here it is: yawn. I know these shoes are meant to be classic and versatile, but they strike me as being plain, rather than classic; clichéd, rather than offering anything new.

There’s no doubt in my mind that there are certain shoe staples that are almost indispensable; the black court shoe, the nude open-toed sandal, but I’ve never felt like spending over €100 on any kind of “plain” shoe, mostly because I feel that, if you’re going to spend a lot on a pair of shoes, they should have some sort of “wow” factor.

But what are your thoughts? Are they worth the investment? Do you spend more money on the less “out there” items in your wardrobe?
