Topshop Kingdom Flats

If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour…

Topshop have got it going on in the flat shoe department right now. As soon as I spotted these lace-up Aquazurra rip-offs I knew that I needed them to be mine.

First came the faux snakeskin pair.

These I envisaged wearing a lot with white - white dresses, white skirts etc… -  but as it happens I have worn them the most with denim jeans.

They enjoyed their maiden voyage in the UK and as someone that often suffers from the process of breaking in new shoes I am pleased to report that they caused no issues - no blisters and no rubbing.

Ordinarily anything that cuts my legs off at the ankle makes me feel like Mrs Stumpy McStump (Valentino Rockstud flats I'm looking at you) but there is an elegance to these (thanks to the pointed toe) that balances them out.

Well that sealed the deal and I then decided that I must have the black and naively toddled off to the website to add to basket and checkout. Of course, they were sold out. So I checked out my local Topshop in Tunbridge Wells…..and guess what? Sold out.

Cue silent tears. 

I tweeted about this and a very kind follower - Kawai (who also has a blog - Link!) offered to pick them up for me in her local store. It honestly blows me away when anyone volunteers to custom shop/go out of their way for me. I think it's very generous of someone to give up their time in that way.

A few days later and here they are…I have already planned an outfit around them (of course) with Zara jeans and a pretty Topshop blouse.

Having tried them on I would say that the black makes more of a statement is probably the more appealing version as a result. Being black they are also the easiest to wear/pair with clothes in my neutral wardrobe.

I'm not sure if this blogpost is interesting at all. Probably not. But I wanted to shout about these shoes and tell you all that you they are wonderful and well worth the £50ish price tag!

Now I need to seriously consider the red pair…. :)


  1. Dreamy shoes! Love them !

  2. I have the similar shoes from Topshop in the first design but with heels and I love them!

  3. I think you have to buy multiples if you can find a comfy flat that doesn't have a painful 'wearing in' phase. You are totally justified, they look really smart :)

  4. These are soooo beautiful!!!!


  5. I feel you! The lure of these shoes is unreal, they're so workable and comfy!

  6. Agreed!! I have been guilty of buying shoes in ever color in the past but now I try to control the urge and behave! I have issues with finding the perfect black flats which usually fall between sizes but I persist! Hopefuly one day brands will realise there are feet that fit 39.5 as well! lol!


  7. These look awesome! I totally agree with buying great shoes in every color. I wish I was near a Topshop so I could purchase these, I'll have to check online!!
