It may be a while until Spring and warmer temperatures but what were socks in shoes invented for if not for desperate situations like these? When all you want is to show off your pretty new shows but the bloody cold won't let you...
I came across these on Manrepeller and it was love at first sight. Those shoes have everything a good shoe needs: pom poms, glitter, fringe and more. They are perfect. Except for this weather of course. But I wouldn't be a good German if I didn't know that that is what socks were made for.
Sanayi 313 is not only a shoe label, it is a concept boutique based in Istanbul whose co-founder Serena Uziyel, a Parsons School of Design Graduate, designs the shoes (Manrepeller features a short interview with her). If only I had know about this when I went to Istanbul last year. But I either have to go there again very soon or wait for their online shop to open in February next year. Apparently they will also soon be stocked on Matches Fashion. One more thing for the Christmas wishlist.
