Eley Kishimoto Shoes

I brought these a couple of months ago ready for my summer holiday but I just couldn't wait to test them out, I picked a bright sunny morning to try out these babies (though it rained like 5 minutes after this photo) and they did not disappoint. 

I was (and still am) a little apprehensive about the boldness of the print. My regular colour pallet is black, grey and blues and it's rare that I will break out of that mold. 

However these were in a lil sale going for a steal so I thought I'd take a leap of faith and buy them.

They are part of the Living Art collaboration between Vans and Eley Kishimoto, bringing bold prints to the classic shoe design. 

There are so many different designs and styles of shoe so it's easy to find something you like, I went for the classic slip on which I think will be perfect for wandering in the summer sun on holiday.

The shoes themselves are really comfortable, they slip-on easy without flopping around. The soles are thick and a really good quality so hopefully these will last a lot longer than standard shoes do and the cushioning on the back means they don't hurt the backs of my ankles. 

I love the graphic patterns of these shoes, bright and cheerful without being too busy and dizzying; the designers have perfectly balanced vibrancy with casual street-style. 

At Embrace the Light we love to experiment with fashion and be a little bit different so we love the idea of this collaboration. 

The prints add a splash of colour to a simple outfit and I can't wait to play around with different combinations.
