First Look: Romance Was Born for PeepToe Shoes

Romance Was Born held one of my favourite shows at Australian Fashion Week this year, their theatrical shows and designs always manages to take my breathe away. Though for spring/summer 2011-12 they didn’t create elaborate footwear for the runway show, understandable though, models had to walk quite a long distance from the backstage area, along the walls of the library, downstairs and then along the runway floor. So it comes a little bit of a surprise that Romance Was Born has teamed up with Australian footwear brand PeepToe Shoes to design a pair of shoes – that is almost a little understated for Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales, the designer duo behind Romance Was Born.

Called the Miss Oracle, Plunkett and Sales have taken a platform ankle boot in black, gold and white, given it a perforated upper section and dipped in it some glitter. Great for a bit of sparkle in everyday wear, but I kinda of expected a little more ‘crazy’ or ‘outrageousness’ from the Romance Was Born team.

Retailing for $329, the Romance Was Born for PeepToe ‘The Oracle’ shoe will be exclusively available in the PeepToe Paddington boutique and online from Thursday.

Will you be rushing in to buy a pair?
