Five days out of seven you will find me working in the ‘footwear industry’. I am not anything wonderful like a shoe designer or a brand representative (also known as the dream). No, I work in retail, out on the shop floor or on the front line as some would say. For the most part I adore it. We stock many amazing cool and quirky high street brands, one of which is Irregular Choice.
I have been obsessed with Irregular Choice for well over a decade now. I used to spend my 30-minute lunch breaks in my local branch of Schuh gazing at their wall display full of these wonderful and unique heels covered in ice cream cones and little scottie dogs waiting for the day I could afford my very own pair. The one collection that caught my attention like no other was the Irregular Choice x London Collage of Fashion collection that was released back in 2011. Unfortunately the chances of coming across any of these styles released is like finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. So, imagine my absolute delight when I discovered that they were once again teaming up with Rosanna Gault to recreate these iconic designs.
I guess it is to nobody’s surprise that just a little over a year ago today I finally managed to bag my very own pair (in fact I bagged myself two pairs but we will leave that for a later date). A few months later I wore them for the first and only time out of the house, trudging around the woods to take the images featured here today. It’s safe to say I almost broke my ankle twice tottering up and down muddy hills and climbing rocks. So, if you are looking for sturdy pair of climbing boots please let me inform you that these are not the boots for you. If, however you are looking for a pair of boots that will get you noticed then look no further.
