Yes Tonic-ettes. These are the shoes that deserve their own blog post. These are the shoes that taught me what "baskets" (sport), "craie" (chalk) and "taille" (size) all mean - Hang around French eBay long enough and you learn a few things! These are more commonly known as Isabel Marant's "Perkins" sneakers - sold out worldwide and subsequently going for a motza on eBay everywhere. Beautifully soft suede and leather/canvas, with a concealed wedge heel inside, making you (secretly!) taller whilst wearing them. Gotta love that. And when you work from home and/or are a parent? Sneakers tend to be your thing. And this is about as sexy as sneakers get. Right?
Or as famous French photographer/blogger Garance Dore says: "“It’s like a pushup bra for the legs." Read her post on the IM Perkins here.
