Birthday Kicks: Aquazzura Sexy Thing Booties

3 July 2017

Aquazzura Sexy Thing Booties

Yay it’s July and in a lead up to my birthday month, I kind of did this thing!

I mean, what better way to celebrate “getting older” than to do a 4-week camping trip to Central Australia with my family… AND get myself some totally impractical shoes?!

It’s all about balance :)

Launched in 2011, the Sexy Thing Bootie by Aquazzura has been labelled as an iconic fashion shoe of 2010s.

The shoe was designed by Edgardo Osorio, who has said that it was the first shoe design for his collection, when he launched the Aquazzura brand in 2011.

It features super-soft, suede uppers that comfortably wrap around the shape of the foot, soft inner soles and brilliant design. It was known as the “24 Hour Shoe” and still very popular today; living up to it’s classic, timeless, yet modern style.

Suffice to say, I had my eye on them for years.

When an online sale came up, I nabbed it, courtesy of Shopbop, and my heart skipped a beat.

What do I think?

Omg they certainly live up to the hype.

They are simply beautiful. They are so so so soft. They are the loveliest and most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. All those points I wrote about above, about the leather hugging your foot, soft inner soles, excellent design, classic style, yes yes, yes and yes.

I can wear them for hours and they feel amazing. The only thing that surprised me was their weight. They are very light and they feel delicate. They don’t feel like they will break or tear, but because of their price, yes, I am quite precious with them.

I tread carefully! I stay away from cobblestone paths!

The shade of nude is lovely. I am usually a size 36, and chose the 36, which fit me perfectly.

I love how versatile they are and that I can wear them dressed-up or dress-down. They are fabulous with both an evening gown or a jeans and a tee.

Yay to an exciting month!

(Btw yes, I’m still travelling around in Central Australian Desert as I post this!)
