Heritage classics get a glamorous makeover this season at Hobbs, where details like tooling, tassels and buckles dress up chic, modern shapes and heels to create a brilliant collection of day-to-night footwear. Choose ankle strap mid-heels, leopard print slippers, patent loafers, metallic brogues or high rise t-bars for trend-driven looks, or keep it classic with lace-up shoe boots or quilted ballet flats.
Those looking to try something a bit more unusual will be happy with the Delphine pump, a pointed flat with three strap reaching up to the ankle, or a pair of block heels with tooled trims for a brogue-inspired finish with a little more panache. Wear them with contrasting tights for the strongest look. For formal occasions, styles from the Invitation line have you covered. Tatiana is a lace-covered court that looks like a designer heel, while Adele puts a 2013 spin on the Mary Jane with a cutout at the ankle.

Chloe Green's third shoe collection for Summer 13 has hit Selfridges and it's proving to be yet another smash hit for the Topshop heiress, who already boasts Nicole Scherzinger, Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian as fans of her stylish shoe line. Inspired by dreamy summer days and hot summer nights, the collection sees trainers added to the line in both casual and more glamorous styles, alongside her famous high heel platforms and new season colour block wedges.
While Chloe seems to have cracked the secret to success, there's still one celebrity she has designs on, namely The Duchess of Cambridge. Chloe told the Mail Online, "Now I am focusing on a very different kind of customer. Who wouldn't want to dress the Duchess of Cambridge? It would be nice for an English brand to dress someone so British. Plus they are also a more reasonable height." Shop Chloe's fab new collection at Selfridges below.
