For years, recreation gurus and lesbians in stone washed jeans harnessed the power of clunky, thick-strapped leather sandals for forest hiking and street bustling. Finally their bestowed wisdom has reached the fashion world, resulting in colourful, comfortable and absolutely clunktastic sandals from Marni that we’re all clawing to get our hands on. The Marni Fussbett Collection, part of the Spring Summer 2013 Saturday Morning collection, boasts six pairs of leather two-toned foot cushions.
As all fashion hounds enjoy a bit of choice to their trend, the collection provides sandals in both metallic and shiny, shiny patent leather, corresponding to this season’s metal mania hype. And to top it all off, the bright thick straps and chunky soles are a perfect fit for the grungers of fashion’s present Nineties nostalgia. Stylish and sturdy, these are the hang loose, get real shoes for this summer.
Available from £300 to £340 at www.shoescribe.com and Marni stores
