Strictly Come Dancing rules the Saturday night television in my house. I love everything about it. The mix of celebrities are perfect, the dances inspired, the costumes are never less than fabulous, and, of course I’m in love with the fabulous dancing shoes. The professional dancers and female contestants wear the most feminine and elegant shoes, often mid-heeled and Mary Jane style, and seem to (mostly) glide around the dance floor in effortless style. Maybe they have found the secret of the perfect shoe for causing ‘murder on the dance floor.’ (Bit of a Sophie pun there – sorry!)
With the Christmas party season already beginning for some of us, I’ve been taking a look around to find variations on the dancing shoes styles. Shoe specialist Spartoo has some great styles that would help you channel your inner Alesha Dixon or Ginger Rogers during the festive season, with a fabulous patent pair from Clarks being amongst my favourite. The almost sensible heel should mean you can keep dancing all night, with the patent gloss adding a touch of Hollywood style glamour to the shoe.
