Boden’s most beautiful new shoes as cherry-picked by Fashion Foie Gras’ Emily Johnston

I’ve worked in fashion since launching Fashion Foie Gras five years ago, and even before that have spent a lifetime absorbing every ounce of style I can from women around me. Time after time I find that the most stylish women I cross paths with always had amazing shoes – and I mean real show-stoppers: ones that leave you green with style envy. Whether a classic or statement piece, the right pair of shoes helps to finish an outfit to perfection and if I’ve learned nothing else, it’s that a statement shoe should be on every woman’s seasonal checklist. This spring Boden offers up dozens of shoes that will make every women stop you on the sidewalk: I wanted to share my favourite styles.

The colour-pop flats
Bright, beautiful and with a neat bow. What more do I need to say? These will work ‘flat’-out for you. Pair with a skinny jean or printed skirt and you’re preppy perfection.

The Breton stripe pumps
This season you can do no wrong with a Breton stripe – yes, even on your shoes! Live the nautical dream, ladies, and try pairing stripes with stripes for a daring daytime look.

The flower power trainer
Trainers are officially the fashion shoe of the moment. Add floral to that mix and you have style glory. Dare to wear with a mini dress or a boyfriend jean.

The chic skater shoe
If there’s one thing I’d bet all my style credentials on, it’s an investment in animal print. Try wearing these slip-on trainers with a casual little black dress.

The patent slingback
A pink shoe… ? Yes, ladies this is a statement – and some – but it’s one that will draw green-with-envy looks. Wear with Boden’s new season botanical prints or sailor stripes this season.

The updated vintage heel
Mark my words – these are the official statement heel for SS15. Wear with jeans, skirts, dresses or trousers. The rule here is just to wear them. These are guaranteed compliment-drivers and I want them in every colour.

The modern black sandal
If you do not have a stylish black heel in your closet, stop reading immediately and get these in your shopping cart. Modern, edgy and chic, these will perfect an evening look or wear by day to jazz up a more casual look.

The moccasin ankle boot
Boots aren’t just for winter or festivals. Pair these wedges with a floral summer dress for a perfect boho-chic vibe. I can’t get enough of tasselled laces!
