C is for Carrie, Court Shoes and Comfort

All of the Sex and the City girls were well known for clomping around the Manhattan streets in killer heels but there's a lot to be said for comfort. No wonder Carrie had to take cabs everywhere, it's not as though you can go on a 6 mile urban hike in 8 inch stilettos. The court shoe is a great alternative to hideously high heels and were, on more than one occassion, favoured by the girls on the hit show. I found these amazing Salt Pink Court Shoes at Kurt Geiger reduced from £120.00 to £59.50. Kurt and the crew broke traditional style taboos and mixed together red and pink to created a timeless shoe that will match beautifully with a range of styles and colours. For the traditional look match your heels to the colour of your outfit or for a trendy street look wear them with jeans.

If the credit crunch is really taking it's toll on your shoe fund then pay a visit to Peacocks. I picked up this fabulous pair of court shoes in this season's key colour - mustard. They were a snip at £12.00 and will definitely come in useful this season and for seasons to come. Mustard is a colour that seems to come back round every year so it's worth keeping a pair of mustard shoes stashed in your closet to modernise an otherwise classic look. Court shoes still give your legs and posture a boost but will also enable you to walk gracefully rather than tripping over or getting your heels caught in drains and man covers. Always a bonus if you ask me!
