Mojito shoes coming to Modish!

11 Feb

Forgive me WordPress, because ShoesieQ has sinned.  For it is a good 2 months since her last post on this blog, for which she is very sorry and general penitent. Although she also strong suspects that no other bugger has even noticed.

So, dear reader, you may well be wondering what has dragged Ms SQ off of her sorry backside and onto her keyboard. Well, shock horror, it’s a pair of shoes.

But wait! It’s not just any old footwear item that’s gotten ShoesieQ into spin. It’s something so revolutionary, and yet so beautiful that she couldn’t  let another day go past without proselytising  to just about anyone who would listen/read.  And if you would be so kind to take a little look at the picture below perhaps, just perhaps, you can see why.


60896285-9151-4cd9-bd12-1846f47b8530What was even more exciting for ShoesieQ was that she got to meet the designer, the rather lovely and very dapper Julian Hakes.  Who kindly took the time to explain the concept behind the shoes, namely that he hoped to come up with something truly evolutionary but that could actually be worn in real life by real people.



The fact that Julian studied at Darwin College, Cambridge tickled ShoesieQ, although she’s not entirely sure that Charles Darwin was thinking of the potential application to footwear when he wrote The Origin of Species…………..

Anyway, ShoesieQ took him at his word, tried a pair on and hey presto – not only are they wearable, but actually pretty comfortable!

Julian Hakes mohito shoesSure, perhaps there are better ways to rock this particular look that wearing them with a pair of M&S opaque tights, but still, they look pretty amazing eh?

Which is why ShoesieQ, much to her surprise, took out her chequebook. Which in turn means that you’ll be able to see for yourself just how amazing these shoes are sometime in March when they’ll be coming to a Modish near you.

    Gosh they look different – are they easy to walk in? Or am I just getting old?

      Hahaha Louise – and you’re right, in that last year they were almost impossible to wear. But I tried them again yesterday and it’s like a different shoe, fit-wise. The designer explained they’d had them completely remodelled, which means that now they’re more than just a novelty shoe/ work of art. Come and try a pair next month and you’ll see!!
