Jeffrey Campbell’s Huaraches

Since starting this website, I’ve become guilty of a few things. But we’re not here to talk about my need to purchase everything I write about. We’re here because I’ve been neglecting the fashionable men in my life. What can I say? I was blinded by bikinis and balayage – things that (bless your hearts) you guys read and even commented on. But I’m not here to make excuses; I’m here to apologise. And what better way, than with a pair of summer huaraches from my current favourite shoe designer Jeffrey Campbell.

These Mexican sandals are made from woven leather and are pretty much the only man shoe I’ve ever found myself getting excited about. I love everything about these – the colour, the weave, the fact that they’d look amazing with your jeans rolled up just above your ankles.

If I could offer one piece of advice, it would be to not think about this purchase for too long. The Jeffrey Campbell men’s collection is extremely hard to find and sells out quickly. Get them on Solestruck or head down to Tuchuzy if you’re around Bondi and you might get lucky – they got them back in stock last week.

As the founder of THIS ISLAND LIFE, Laura is an expert on all things summer. When she's not at home in Sydney, she's chasing the warm-weather to exotic destinations across the globe.

    I’m sure I had a pair just like these in the 80s……… I still remember the blisters they gave me when I’d bust a move to Prince at the blue light disco!!!!
