SPEEDO BIOFUSE (KATAHAMA) FLIP FLOP

The new Speedo flip flop

reminds us of kids LEGO bricks. The design has an air of the Nike Free sole about it; ergonomic, flexible and comfy but with a touch of high tech.
It will set you back £30, but with a multitude of colours to choose from we reckon you'll want more than one pair.

CREPE AFFAIR

London High Street Ladies Shoes


After a quick look around Oxford Street at the new shoes for winter, these are some key details we really liked,
- Crepe soles - used on desert boots, wedges and in combination with other materials like wooden heels
- Red - on everything from boots to brogues to heels
- Worn and polished - these brown boots with contrast leather finish have an extra shine on the toe and heel
- Strappy cut-outs - we love these pretty open toed heels (navy and grey) and the flat pump, both with cut out panels
- Laces - thats winter laced up




MEN'S WINTER 09 SHOE TRENDS - OXFORD STREET

Latest Men's shoe photos from the London High Street

- Office, Top Shop and Schuh.
Buckles, straps and even a take on the 60's Beatles blocky heel for formals.
A return of the monkey boot and the monk shoe, with ankle boots a Men's shoe wardrobe must for AW09.
Classic styles like brogues take a quirky twist with blocks of colour or a pre-worn creased look.
We like the 'Ask The Missus' simple tan brogue.
