Sometimes minimal just doesn’t cut it. Sometimes keeping it simple translates to simply boring. Sometimes, you just gotta step it up a notch (or a chunky buckle platform).

Thankfully, there is absolutely nothing minimal or boring about the latest arrivals from hot California brand Privileged shoes. As the official and exclusive U.K. stockist, it’s fair to say we were massively excited when these beauties dropped last week.

The west coast label describes themselves as shoe rebels. We like that a lot. They see the Privileged girl as a trendsetter who loves turning heads in vibrant colours and eccentric designs. Sounds a bit like the schuh girl we think. It’s a perfect pairing.

Let’s begin with the star of the show: the Mercer. She needs no introduction of course, and if a shoe were to be described as fierce, it would definitely be the Mercer. Jagged heel, 6cm platform and a chunky gold chain ankle strap make this one not suitable for the faint hearted.

The Fia is all chunky stacked heels and clear plastic – it’s like, a totally nice nod to the 90s. We love it in orange and black. Throw on with an LBD, a denim jacket and some orange lippie for instant outfit success. These would also look great with mum jeans.

We can’t get enough high shine and today – we’re talking pink high shine with embossed polka dots, it’s even better. The Trill, with its double buckles and slick metallic heel is pure bad ass.

If you buy one pair of heels this summer, make it a pair of Privileged shoes.
