I have something of an obsession with Miu Miu’s brogues. I just bought my second pair, a pink snake-embossed set to go with my patent leather, crystal-heeled purchase from earlier in the year. Not only are they the most comfortable shoes in my closet, but they’ve been a source of constant compliments, particularly the pair with a little bit of sparkle. For flats, they’re pretty fancy.
So if a little sparkle is good, wouldn’t a whole lot of sparkle be better? That’s where the Miu Miu Glitter and Crystal Brogues come in, and they combine all of Miu Miu’s gaudy (and I mean that in the nicest way possible) into one resplendent shoe that might require its owner to wear sunglasses, even at night.
Sometimes, you just don’t want to wear heels. I have an orthopedic condition that generally prevents me from wearing them, but because I love shoes, I’m always looking for the most unique flats available. With a pair like this, they can either be worn as foot jewelry to a fancy event or as a little bit of dressed-down sparkle during the day. That’s the beauty of the brogue; the traditional, functional structure means that even the fanciest of pairs can be easily adapted for relatively casual wear. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $650.
