Both – Modern shoes for modern lives -RTW Spring/summer 2019
Both, RTW SS19 Collection – Paris Fashion Week
Chatting to friends at the end of the day, often means that a shoe appointment is NOT about the shoes, but at Both the shoes were like objects d’art displayed to be picked up and admired.

So we managed to chat and look at the wonderful shoes. Graphic black and white high tops or trainers featured sharp yellow dot ‘n dash soles, a bright red trainer with a similar sole had bounce built in with its soft curving lines and neat yellow flash, all on a black ground.
A trio of neat white city shoes featured a front panel in white on white, stone grey, or pale bubblegum pink.
However, the gold and pale bubblegum-pink shoes on massive matching platforms looked harder to wear; platforms that high always evoke Naomi Campbell tumbling on the catwalk at Vivienne Westwood, but since these are laceups they are much more stable.
The gold pair being shiny gold all over and the pink having a zig zag textured platform very like the surface of a car tyre.
Still they were very exciting, and as with all the Both shoes, they are made with very high standard of materials and finish.
All in all, these were beautifully thought-out, designed and made trainers for 2019 and onwards.
