The Wish List: Sophia Webster

The Wish List: Sophia Webster

Have you ever dreamed of shoes with slim stilettos, holiday wedges, rose-gold finishes and ornately gilded wings? If this yearning sounds familiar, then British designer Sophia Webster has the footwear for you. Webster founded her eponymous label in 2012 and has since been wowing us all with her playfully feminine designs. These are the kinds of shoes you dreamt of as a child, and are actually even better in their IRL, grown-up incarnations. Her witty approach to design is instantly recognisable and has earned her cult status amongst shoe fetishists around the globe. Webster’s SS17 offering is inspired by tropical paradises and the designer’s love of ‘60s music, in particular the original Dreamgirls. Expect hothouse colours, tropical influences, metallic accents and feminine silhouettes. These shoes will give you wings.


The Evangeline sandal is a Sophia Webster signature. The sleek black suede upper and rose-tinted ankle strap are divine, but both pale to insignificance in the ornate shadow of the intricately laser-cut angel wing detail. Heavenly.


Fun footwear needn’t be towering. These sleek, white low top trainers will inject your off-duty footwear wardrobe with instant holiday impact. The bold multi-coloured finish with patent woven detailing is the perfect antidote to an otherwise simple, dressed-down look.


Carefree, modern, and just plain pretty, the Lucita wedge is the type of shoe that will make a girl sigh. Sure to elicit looks of approval from everyone you happen to pass that day (why limit yourself to evening – they’re that good), slip them on and feel the twinkle (toes.)


Another Sophia Webster classic, but this time wrought in pretty pastel hues and featuring neon embroidered butterfly wings to the toes. Designed to help you discover your inner butterfly, they’re sure to put a spring in your step.


Reminiscent of a beautiful bird cage, these Delphine sandal booties are striking, seductive and utterly tempting. Intricately crafted from rose gold leather, they fasten with an elegant bow tie at the front.
