I bought these navy Boden Natalia slingbacks before Christmas with the intention of wearing them to a family party at my brother’s house on Boxing Day. However, Boris’s last minute U-turn meant we could only mix households on Christmas Day. Of course, a further lockdown ensued, so they sat unworn for almost four months. I finally managed to wear them last week when we celebrated Harry’s 18th birthday. I wore them with a navy pleated maxi dress and Mulberry sunglasses and I felt a million dollars.
The Boden Natalia slingbacks add more than a touch of star quality to an outfit. The embellished constellation contrasts beautifully with the navy background.
Like all Boden shoes they are very well made. Unlike some slingbacks which can slip off at the ankle, these ones don’t; the elasticated satin strap holds them in place without feeling tight. The heel is 85mm high and the shoes have a leather lining and sole. These are another pair of forever shoes.
I wore them for several hours and they were comfortable throughout. I have a lot of Boden footwear and I find the sizing is consistent, so I’d recommend getting your usual size. At the time of writing there is 40% off and there are still a few sizes available.
