A Shoe Dilemma…

Submitted by Alanda on April 11, 2011 – 11:49 amNo Comment

I have an eternal problem with black shoes. Undoubtedly a wardrobe staple, I have never been able to find a pair that I really feel fulfils that staple slot, offering totally reliable style whilst not causing criminal foot pain! I veer drastically from feeling that patent black looks perfect with an outfit, to deciding that they ruin it, striking them from any role in my staples list. A wardrobe staple, in its very nature, must always be the solution and never the cause of any fashion doubt.

However, this season it would appear that there is a glimmer of hope for my black shoe-less wardrobe! Camper has released a selection of black wedge heel sandals, which combine Camper’s excellent comfort technology with beautiful on-trend style. I am entirely smitten by two pairs, and already having a number of Camper shoes in my collection (I am a sucker for comfort and style), I am now facing an entirely new dilemma in deciding which of these deserve the honour of becoming my black heel staple!

The Rachael 21401 Wedge Sandal  comes in black and nude, and the cross over style ensures that the leg is elongated; a crucial deciding factor when choosing black shoes for anyone without Kate Moss’s physique! Camper have created a wedge heel at the perfect height, offering the extra inches without leaving you teetering around like a bird on a perch, and the super soft leather moulds to your foot, meaning that you eliminate any chance of rubbing or blisters.  These sandals will team beautifully with dresses, skirts and trousers, are easy to dress up and dress down and are, in every way, prime for the position of black shoe staple, but there is competition…





This gorgeous Camper Rachael 21182 Wedge Sandal offers the same wedge heel, comfort design and super soft leather. This multi-strap style brings gladiator style bang up to date, and offers the perfect structure to offset this summer’s floaty, romantic fashions. The sling back heel and low cut on the front are super flattering to the leg. All this leaves me in a complete quandry…undoubtably both utterly delicious, but which one deserves the title of ‘Black shoe staple’? I have gone from years of serious black shoe drought, to this sudden flood of Camper wedge heel goodness, and it is a decision that I just cannot make! Your opinions will be greatly received in making this life changing decision…the future style of my feet depend upon it!
