The corsage has quietly been making its way back onto the UK high street, but no use is more effective than on evening shoes. These Schuh Beauty Rose courts might contain something of a mishmash of retro influences, but they make for a great result.
The mid heel, sloped and sculpted, combined with the overall rounded shape is a more modern touch. The rest of the shoe, however, is clearly heavily influenced by the 1940s and 50s. The cut outs make this pair for me, with a leftover 30s motif that was still popular in forties footwear. Topped by the rose detail, these are far from ordinary black high heels.
