1.FreshStep Shoe Clips – HIGH HEELS

Now as the old adage goes, a lady can never have too many shoes. This is certainly the case if you have a collection of Shoe Clips to give your favourite heels regular facelifts

The clip on and off feature of these mean you can swap them between all of your shoe collection and create a range of styles. This blog is going to feature two of our most popular shoe clips and the best ways to wear them, so keep reading

First, is our simple black bow, this elegant and understated shoe clip with diamante detail looks great with dress shoes and creates an impression of class and style. Best paired with black heels and placed either directly over the toes or slightly angled towards the outside of the shoe, but these clips still look great no matter what you match them with.

Up next are the ever-popular Golden Globes, these clips always look great especially on the dance floor to create a simple party theme! Best matched with a pair of flat shoes of any colour but don’t be afraid to try these out with a pair of heels or even as a bag accessory!
