Sophia Webster is our ultimate shoe crush, and we’re desperate to slip our manicured toes into her latest international collection.
But before we get too excited, Australian fashionistas have been deprived from these breathtaking sole saviours. (I know, we're crying too)
We have been fiercely hunting and have only discovered two Australian boutiques who stock a modestly small range of Sophia Webster shoes. If you want to fall in love and know your exact shoe size then it's worth the trip to Quincy in Sydney or Grace in Melbourne. But remember, they only carry a small array of styles and sizes.
Other than that, you can only buy Sophia Webster shoes online. What's a girl to do?
It's no question that statement shoes are having a big moment in Australia right now, and Sophia Webster’s designs fit the bill perfectly. From pom-poms perched on toes to exquisite flowers cut from leather, there are styles to suit every taste. Playful, fun, and flirty seems to be the only rule.
So what is it about this striking label that we can't get enough of? In a word, everything! Though, to be more precise, Sophia Webster’s High Summer Collection has caught our eye lately, as we all need some hot shoes heading into our hot Australian summer! It's basically epitomises fun and frivolity, to say the least. (wink, wink)
While we're obsessing our favourites have to include: the Lilico Pump, a mirrored leather pump so shiny you’ll be mistaken for Cinderella on her way to the ball, and the Lilico Sandal, a strappy, sky-high sandal with delicate leather flowers trailing across the toe.
The Lilico Sandal is especially fabulous in rose gold – and so on-trend right now. For those who suffer from stiletto-induced vertigo, there are flat slides, all in eye-catching summer colours or polka-dots and all bearing the fabulous floral accents.
Other gorgeous examples of Sophia Webster’s quirky styles are the Coco Flamingo Pumps, a supple leather pump with a flamingo forming the stiletto heel, and the designer’s Angel Wings Collection. These are the true works of art. Think stilettos with butterfly and angel wings at the heel, giving the impression that the wearer is about to take flight. In a pair of Sophia Webster shoes you’ll turn heads, as the designer takes statement shoes to divine new levels.
Sophia Webster is a shoe lover’s dream, and we hope that one day soon we can walk into a flagship store in Australia and lust over and of course, buy these fabulous shoes!
