I never thought I’d become one of those people who really liked shoes.

Growing up I was barefoot half of the time (the rest of the time I was in my tackies or flip flops). But as I’ve developed more than a passing interest in style, shoes have become slightly more important. I’m not going to pretend this is a life and death situation. I understand that most people wear shoes for utility. That some people find shoes, fashion or any of that stuff, a touch frivolous. But I see it differently, and that’s okay.

What we wear can be a way of expressing ourselves, just like the books we choose to keep on our bookshelves, the art we choose to collect, the music we choose to listen to. So I’ve become more comfortable with being interested in fashion, and now I’m just embracing it.

Good shoes change everything about how your outfit looks. They keep you comfortable. And if you look after them, and they’re decent quality, they can last you a really long time. Which brings me to the concept of buying fewer things.

Pesso pumpsI’m no expert on sustainable or conscious fashion (at all), but I’m trying to learn. Because just as we’ve become more aware of how much plastic we use, or of how what we eat impacts the environment, so too do we need to address what we choose to wear each day.

So for me currently, this means buying fewer, better quality things, and wearing them A LOT. I have a mustard satin skirt from Poetry for example that I’ve now worn over 50 times I reckon, and I’ve only had it a few years;). I’m also trying to mend things that break, repurpose items and share clothing with friends, as well as buy vintage and used pieces, instead of fast fashion all the time.

Pesso shoes are not fast fashion. They are handcrafted in Europe by expert leather makers and you can feel the difference. I’ve been gifted shoes from Pesso for around four years now and I still have every single pair they’ve given me, because they just last and last, never go out of style, and are such excellent quality.

My most recent gift is a pair called the Grama, which are leopard print (LOVE) and have a bit of a heel to add some definition to your legs. Apparently they are their bestseller this summer and they have had to order more to keep up with demand! These look great with shorts, jeans, skirts – you name it.

Pesso also have various lovely styles on sale currently, including my favourite metallic sandals (featured on the right) and some gorgeous pastel sneakers, so have a look.

WIN a R2000 Pesso voucher to spend online

Lucky for you, Pesso have offered me 1 x R2000 online voucher to give away to a reader, so you can visit their online store and choose any pair (or pairs!) of gorgeous shoes that you like. And then you can enjoy them by wearing them over and over (until they finally disintegrate in 25 years’ time;)

Please note that by entering this giveaway, you are agreeing to subscribe to the Pesso newsletter AND my blog newsletter. But that’s okay because Pesso only emails you interesting stuff occasionally, as do I (and of course you can always unsubscribe from either list at any time).

To enter, all you need to do is:

  1. Visit the Pesso site & take a look around.
  2. Leave a comment below this blog post on which pair of Pessos you’d buy with your voucher (your comment may not appear immediately as I may have to approve it).
  3. (when you comment you’re asked to input your email address as part of the process).
  4. You’re done! It’s that simple.
  5. And if you feel like sharing this giveaway on social media, that would be fab.

Giveaway closes Friday 14th February at 12 noon.

Good luck!

The Pesso Grama

Peta Singleton February 7, 2020 - 6:06 am

Gosh .. a pair of the Pesso spot would be a fabulous chic replacement for my cheap and nasty ‘tekkies’ that have been through the mill and back – LOVE the Pesso style <3 .. and they make small sizes for my smaller-than-average feet !

Philippa February 7, 2020 - 6:15 am

Pesso Fritz

Nicky Lubbr February 7, 2020 - 7:06 am

Oh la la! So many gorgeous pairs to choose from! But if I had to pick, I’d say my favs are: Pesso Every (I am going through a pink phase at the moment), the Pesso Roll Cork looks super comfy (and I love that it’s a little different with the cork texture), the Pesso Zen would fancy up a pair of jeans and white tee beautifully, and the PessoSignature Starlet is calling my name loudly, which is odd – because heels are not usually my go-to, must-have thing!?

Samantha Naude February 7, 2020 - 7:11 am

I love their espedrille range, it’s absolutely gorgeous, really loving the Pesso Snake and the Pesso Spanish in black, but to be honest, because winter is coming, I’ll definitely go for the Pesso Blonx, it’s so stylish 👌

Reneé Woodhouse February 7, 2020 - 7:18 am

Sooo difficult to choose one! The Pesso Every looks incredibly comfortable and versatile. I’d love a pair.

Vanessa Corke February 7, 2020 - 7:56 am

I would definitely choose a pair of Pesso Greek sandals. Super comfort and long lasting style in a tone that suits the current trend, goes with everything, but not too blingy as to go out of favour anytime soon.

Rachel Goldstuck February 7, 2020 - 8:02 am

I’d get the Pesso Essentials Alba or the Pesso Mute.
Love these shoes

Sharon White February 7, 2020 - 12:06 pm

Grama or espadrilles are spectacular.

Gail Cummings February 7, 2020 - 12:27 pm

As a brand new first time Mommy where none of my clothes fit me right now this would be such a blessing to win!!! OMW how would I ever decide, there are just so many to love!!! I especially adore the Pesso Everton, Pesso spake, Pessi spot, and the Pesso Zen 😉

Thea-Mari Venter February 7, 2020 - 12:28 pm

I really can’t choose between, Pesso Greet & Pesso Valencia. I would probably buy the Pesso Greet……will be able to use it more because more an everyday shoe than the Valencia.

Tarne February 10, 2020 - 7:41 pm

My choice was from the espadrille collection and I chose the pesso spam. A very comfy, plain and simple shoe that can be worn with anything from cotton pants, flowy skirts, denim shorts or jeans. I love the color, I love the style and I’m hoping I get the opportunity to get my hands onto a pair of them.

Aurelia-Lynn Smith February 11, 2020 - 5:24 am

Ooooh, Pesso Signature Ruling for me please (the gold ones). Or the Pesso Bird. Decisions! Decisions!

Karen February 13, 2020 - 12:40 pm

Either the Pesso Bird or Pesso Spanish 🙂 Can I also say, it is so refreshing to see a competition where you just enter once instead of ‘1 tag = 1 entry’. That totally stresses me out and I never end up entering those ones.

Sarah February 13, 2020 - 3:02 pm

Hm, tough decision but I’d say the Pesso Spike….
