What’s on our feet – The best from The Basement

There was a heatwave over the weekend.

Footwear is an integral part of fashion. From the rarest, most expensive and most hyped all the way through to beaten Vans on their last legs, what someone has on their feet can say a lot about their style choices. But more than that, it can even give you an insight into the person themselves, from what music they might listen to through what paintings they might hang on their wall.

As a collective of almost fifty thousand people, it’s probably not a surprise that the footwear choices found in The Basement are very varied. It was hard, but from hundreds of entries, we’ve picked a few of our favourites that showcase the diversity found on foot in The Basement over the weekend.

Many thanks to those that provided entries. If yours didn’t get showcased this week, do not worry. We will be providing an insight into the on foot world of The Basement each week, so keep dropping those #WOMFT (What’s On My Feet Today) shots into the community and using the hashtag #BasementApproved for your chance to feature next week.

So lets take a look…

Not surprisingly, Vans make frequent appearances in The Basement.
