Being predominantly a trainer-wearer, I have super soft, easily irritated, coddled feet, so sandal shopping is a nightmare. I despise anything that goes between my toes so thongs and toe posts are a total no-go. Trying to find sandals without them is a hard slog, I'm generally a pretty awkward customer when it comes to summer footwear.

I guess I'm into shoes, then. I love a good heel. Although, I'm not so good at them. Samples sales have taught me that most often, scenarios involving my debit card and stilettos are to be avoided. You got me, I admit it. I've caved again, and again, and again.

Today I met a future doctor, accountant and engineer. They were all 13 year old girls. The aspirations of these Ethiopian girls is heartening. The engineer says she wants to train to help "build up her country". I wouldn't bet against her doing just that.

Choo is softly-spoken has the calm confidence of a man who has achieved much in life. He is slightly built and smartly dressed. His greying hair is closely cropped and he looks at me with reassuring eyes that are surprisingly light in colour.

Weekend Shopping: Kicks and Kiddy Shoes

Sarah McGiven | Posted 27.03.2013 | UK Style
Sarah McGiven

I love shoes. Shoes don't care how much Quality Street you ate over Christmas, the straps won't strain after a big dinner and they are so much easier than clothes to shop for as the sizes tend to be pretty standard across brands, with far less variation than you find in clothing.

Cinderella... Proof That a New Pair of Shoes Can Change Your Life!

I have no time for chunky, plain ugly 'practical' shoes. Why be practical when you can have vertiginous, pointy, platformed, lovelies at the end of your legs?

The sartorial cupid's arrow is a hard hitter. A couple of weeks ago, I fell head-over-demi-heels in love with a neatly wrapped parcel under the Christmas tree. A transparent indigo clutch in the ideal day to night size made up my first piece of the perspex puzzle.

Today I'm wearing a unique piece I've only worn once on my blog before. It's a fur caplet/jacket that I bought from what I refer to as a Hong Kong 'high street' shop- it's not a luxury brand, but a chain similar to Warehouse or Topshop, called Cypress.

Kitten heels have a bad reputation. Notoriously unforgiving and frequently spotted on schoolgirls at their first social, your scepticism is justified. As the contrary fashion merry-go-round spins, prepare to embrace a new kind of shoe, a whole load less kitteny. Out with the old, in with the...old. You know the drill.
