Here's the Story
If there is one thing you will not find among Vivienne Westwood's shoes, then that is boring footwear. Westwood designs always stand out from the conventional – and will make you stand out from the crowd, too. The inimitable designer creates footwear that reflects herself: innovative, extreme, original, surprising. Conventional shapes are combined with shocking colours. And if colour and shape appear sweetly plain, then Westwood will surprise you with the materials used for her footwear. Comfy trainers in leopard print tempt you to run wild, cute ballerina flats wear red hearts on their toe, ankle boots in recyclable, shiny black plastic invite you to go singing – and dancing – in the rain... Long after the punk era, Vivienne Westwood still manages to make bondage style look cool and avantgarde with buckles and leather straps winding their way around boots, and rubber and PVC making a comeback in all-weather wear. Westwood's designs are for any occasion – towering heels are ideal for an evening engagement, platforms combine equally well with knee-length dresses as well as casual trousers. Enjoy the summer in pilgrim sandals straight from the gladiators' arena – you can even brave the mud in sexy welly-style boots that will party with you through a festival weekend. Yet Westwood footwear is made for wearing. Created with the finest materials, Westwood shoes are designed to elevate the wearer – even from a ballerina flat. The characteristic curve of the Westwood heel adds poise and elegance to your step, accentuating the feminity of the wearer and announcing your fashion credentials to the world. Footwear as a statement - Westwood designs are sculptural works of art: Golf shoes on a wooden platform sole, shaped like a rocking horse. The “Rocking Horse Golf Shoe” from 1988 is only one example of Westwood's inimitable style and would not sit out of place on a pedastal in an art gallery. Who else dares to take design this far? Westwood pushes the limits, a reflection of her own uncompromising design ethic. This is footwear for true fashionistas who take delight in showing off avantgarde taste.
