Do you have a fear of wearing all white shoes? I know I sometimes do. When you slide on a pair of clean and crisp all white shoes you run the risk of getting them dirty faster than you can say “Miu Miu.” No matter how often you clean them or painstakingly watch the weather report to determine if they can be worn outdoors, some way and somehow they get marked up.
There are only two ways to avoid this sort of footwear disaster; first, you can forgo wearing white shoes all together, for the rest of your life, or you can buy white shoes that are designed to look, well, kind of dirty – and I mean that in a good way.
A perfect example of the latter is the Vendrome pumps by British designer Charlotte Olympia. At their core these shoes are white, but are treated with a marbleized effect to mimic the metamorphic rock; shades of black and grey permeate throughout the design which, if you think about it, can mask any nick or scratch that may occur to them when you wear them out. So, my friends, you don’t have to abandon your love for classic white shoes just look for a pair like this and you’ll be good to go. Buy online.
