Below: Prada have heard our pleas... the new versions of those highly popular SS2011 Espadrilles Brogues gets taller with a thicker rubber sole! They also feature a more obvious colour stripe under the jute rope trimmings...
Below: But I prefer these without the jute rope... and features a striking contrast white stripe on the thicker soles! Which colour? Tobacco+Blue+Black or Black+Orange? Decisions, decisions...
It is a blessing in disguise I did not get myself a pair of those highly popular Prada SS2011 Espadrilles Brogues. I have always been complaining why Prada did not make the SS2011 versions with a thicker rubber sole as seen on the runway or as per the womens. Thankfully, I am not alone, many of you felt the same way too (to the extent that some guys got the women's version to enjoy that extra half an inch under your feet).
Below: The Spring Summer versions have a thinner sole...The shopping gods be with us. Prada heard our thoughts and pleas. For Fall Winter 2011... their new Tri-colour Brushed Calf Leather Brogues feature not only new colours/variations but with the thicker sole which we all have been clamouring!
I guess the only complain now is which pair to get... I love all the versions for Fall Winter 2011 collection! Will you choose those with jute rope trimmings as per SS2011 (but thicker soles... check out the new colour trim revealing under!) or the white stripe versions sans the jute rope? I seem to have a bigger inclination to the latter... what about you?:-)
(The Brogues retails for SGD1360 or €580)
