Ridiculous. I’ve been wearing my beloved Kurt Geiger cobalt-blue suede desert boots since last summer and I often got funny stares in the street. Yesterday pictures were published of Prince Harry on a visit in Jamaica wearing the same very shoes and today everybody is complimenting me.  Hu?!?…Clearly as soon as a “celebrity” endorses an unusual item of fashion (and Royals even more so), everybody can realx and enjoy. Ahhh, good. No more awkward looks from now on. Cheers Harry. And now all makers of similar shoes are inundated with requests, not just Kurt Geiger, but Russell & Bromley, Clarkes (although I doubt they’d had such fashion-forward smartness to sell this colour) and more.

Me, I’ll just keep enjoying my shoes as I did before, in the hope this will not become such a popular trend to make me go off my them. Because, let me reiterate, I love them love them love them.
