More women are buying proper shoes these days, with Church’s recently relaunching its women’s range. Many’s the time I’ve had my attention drawn by a new pair of shoes in the Church’s window, only to discover they are a women’s design. They just look so slim and elegant. 

Anyway. To illustrate the point, here is Twiggy wearing a pair of bespoke spectators from George Cleverley back in the early 1970s. Despite only making shoes for men, Cleverley made an exception for Twiggy. And don’t they look good?
