Summer shoes by Rupert Sanderson to suit your style
The sun is shining and the sky is blue so it’s officially time to pamper those tootsies and get them out on show with some Spring/Summer 2012 footwear, courtesy of Rupert Sanderson.
Your feet will be breathing a huge sigh of relief as you release them from your winter boots and thick wool socks and slip them into something lightweight and delicate. Are you kicking it in Converse? Bounding around in brogues? Or sashaying in sandals? Whatever you’re stepping out in this season, be inspired (and tempted!) by the sensational Rupert Sanderson collection.
The designer’s philosophy is simply “less is more”. Avoiding augmentation and over dressing the foot, Sanderson concentrates on perfecting line, volume and material to flatter and lengthen the leg and make women feel sexier. Inspiration comes from the materials themselves – from the sensual curve and silhouettes of the lasts and heels, to the quality and finish of the best leather and fabrics. His desire to create beautiful sexy shoes for women derives from not only a deep feeling for fashion, but also a love of making beautiful, luxurious objects.
Take these stunning wedges, £595, in beautiful leather completely on-trend with an ikat printed trim. They are the perfect leg lengthening accessory and the supportive wedge will ensure your feet will remain comfortable from day to night – the perfect summer purchase! Or do you prefer to add a little glamour to your summer evening style? Try the open-toed heels, £525, on for size with statement petal effect detailing on the heels in beautiful orange and purple! Be totally inspired by the sheer footwear seen by the likes of Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs on the designer catwalks with these kitten heels, £424, at half the price, but with double the comfort and style potential.
If your feet are all pedicured and pampered, the gladiator sandal, £395, is for you. Team with anything in your wardrobe from maxi dresses and full 50s style skirts to denim cut-offs and skinny jeans. Still not ready to bare all? Try these quirky brogues, from £395, in leopard print and tan with cute leather tassels; adorable with bare legs and a vintage dress!
Rupert Sanderson shoes are worn by some of the world’s most glamorous and high profile women. His love and understanding of the highly specialist techniques that constantly inspire and fire his imagination, result in him designing and creating beautiful shoes that could complete any outfit.

Note how the designer complements his obsessive passion with the Italian craft of shoemaking by naming every pair of his creations after a daffodil and in line with the summer collection. How blooming lovely is that?
