A couple of months ago when I was in Berlin, I happened upon the Trippen shoe shop in the Haeckische Hof. I quite liked the quirkiness of the design of most of the shoes on sale, but failed to make a purchase then and there. This afternoon though, I discovered there was an outlet here in Amsterdam. And I bought these!




They're not my usual kind of shoe; I normally go for something a little more elegant...and yet, I'm surprisingly fond of them already.

Being a little less elegant in shoe taste, I quite like those.

They do have a certain appeal, don't they? I'm told the husband and wife design team actually worked as an orthopaedic surgeon and a ballet dancer before they set up their small shoe manufacturing business, which goes quite a way to explaining their look and construction, I think.

I like the upturned toe.
