Boats and Gladiators

No, it’s not this year’s Ridley Scott summer blockbuster, it’s what everyone was wearing on their feet at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The classic Timberland boat shoe was what most of the men were wearing, with blues outnumbering the traditional brown ones. Nearly all of the ladies there were in the ever popular gladiator sandals, whether they were wearing their best summer dress or an old pair of shorts.

Unfortunately some people (ahem) decided that they would blend in with the drivers and wear a pair of Puma Speedcats. Please note for next year: this is not a comfortable option for walking round the massive country estate in the baking hot sun!

I can’t see the fashion changing much for next year unless the weather turns wet and it’s back to the Hunter wellies….
