5 non-boring classic shoes

Now I know that sometimes we love a statement shoe, but sometimes we also just love a classic.

Classic shoes work if you like a simple outfit, alternatively, they also work if you’re wearing a ‘wow outfit” but want shoes that compliment, but not take over from your fab look.

What does a classic shoe mean to you? 

It could be a simple, black leather. I could be a nice, flat sole, or it could be a clean white trainer.

Let’s have a look at some of our favourite classic shoes here at Minx HQ and why we love them (we've even thrown in a summer pick for all you travellers out there)

Black basic - Lee Lee Loafer

The loafer style is not just a classic shoe, it’s totally on-trend too!

This timeless shoe works really well with jeans or skinny pants, but can be worn back with black opaque tights with your skirts and dresses.

Classic boots - Point Pop Short Boots

Simple, chic and elegant. These ankle boots are all three. Take your pick from red, ink or taupe micro suede.

Have fun with these fab colours, while keeping to the classic boot shape. The pointed toe elongates your leg, and the fitted leg works well with pants or dresses.


Simple white trainers - Bandit White Milled

The ultimate staple of any shoe-wardrobe, these white sneakers are soft, clean, crisp and timeless.

This classic and casual lace up sneaker is the perfect pair back to any outfit.


Tonal Tan - The Jordie Boots

Tan is such an amazing neutral shoe colour to have in your wardrobe. It literally goes with anything.

One of our favourite tips here at Minx HQ is to grab a tan belt to wear with your tan boots to tie your look together.

The Jordie boots are such an elegant style. The almond toe, the wooden block heel and elastic gusset all give the boots a classic look that will work in your wardrobe for years.


Metallic Wedges - The Spanish Doll Silver Repto

This one is for all your travellers out there heading to warmer climates! A classic wedge is the perfect travel shoe.

The silver metallic leather is a timeless style that will take you from a picnic in Hyde Park to a fancy dinner on the streets of Rome or New York.

The velcro fastening makes these shoes easy to get in to and the low rise of the sole makes them wearable all day long.


We hope you love our collection of classic shoes, there's definitely a place for all of these in any wardrobe.
