The Material Boy #264




Burberry Prorsum Patent Toe Laceups

Finally spotted in the Burberry boutique at Paragon! These uber 'delicious' Burberry Prorsum Patent Toe Laceups are simply divine:-) Crafted with soft textured calf leather and spotting a patent leather toe cap to give the shoes some contrast and high shine! The soles are flat and not heeled which gives it a hybrid style of formal and casual. That means you can work it in many occasions, from work to party! Perfect to wear them with nonchalance with some tailor pants as much as a good old pair of jeans. Comes in black and brown colours. I love it!

However, these shoes do not come cheap in Singapore. They retail for a huge price tag of SGD $950 as compared to Burberry's website at only GBP 275 (Approx. SGD 620). What on earth made these shoes gain such an increase in price with just a flight to Singapore? Oh my.
