Find your Solemate at the V&A

As the designer Kevin Cole once said “The average woman falls in love 7 times a year and 6 of those times are with shoes.” You see the thing about shoes; they don’t care about your weight, height, status, colour or anything. The moment that new shoe hugs your foot a love connection is formed that lasts an eternity. We asked our Senior Retail Promotions Co-ordinator, Sheri Omoh to give us the low-down on the most fashionable ladies shoes for the season and where to shop them at the V&A. She went on to try over 30 different pairs to die for, and these are her top favourites.

“I am very fortunate to work at the V&A Waterfront’s Retail Marketing department and being spoilt for choice when it comes to the amazing variety of shoe retailers; from the heels at Steve Madden and Call It Spring to the comfort of Crocs and Tsonga.”

As seen on the image above, Sheri, dons a pair of taupe Christey sandals from Steve Madden, a colour included in this season’s hottest hues, others being purple, burgundy, olive green and tan. For something on the comfort side, without compromising on style, sneakers are always the go-to choice. There’s nothing like a pair of fashionable sneakers to finish off a sports luxe look. These nude Aldo Naven sneakers will work with any and everything.

All that glitters is definitely the perfect shoe; like these Carrson block heels also from Steve Madden. Pair these up with rolled up denims and a T-shirt for a casual daytime look or a statement LBD for a dressy evening look and you’ll be slaying whatever the occasion.

So, on your next visit to the V&A Waterfront be sure to pop by our shoe retailers to shop the trendiest footwear for an instant style update. Shoe shopping can be quite a daunting experience but our retailers have the best shop assistants to help you decide on the right pair. And because we can’t all have Sarah Jessica Parker’s walk-in closet, we can only dream, so like Sheri, go all out and try on 30+ pairs and dream on girl! And in the famous words of the legendary Coco Chanel: “Keep your heels, head and standards high.” Happy shopping!
