The One Pair of Shoes French Girls Can't Live Without

If one person is an indicator of what the coolest girls in Paris are wearing at any given moment, it's Jeanne Damas. She relies on a few hero items, which we can all buy into via her own label, Rouje. Whether she's wearing a tea dress, wide-leg jeans or tuxedo trousers, chances are she's wearing the same pair of shoes.

Like most Parisians, Jeanne wears her gold Michael Viviens almost everywhere. She alternates between a strappy pair, peep-toes with ankle straps and block heels with a woven strap across the toes. You'll find that almost every French shoe designer makes gold sandals—from Roger Vivier to Michel Vivien.

If you're looking for something without a couture price tag, you'll be pleased to hear that Topshop and Zara have amazing pairs for under £50. Keep scrolling to see how Jeanne wears gold sandals, and shop our edit of the best ones around.
