The tonal equivalent of kittens, avocado toast, or Drake memes, rose gold is the internet’s (pretty metallic pink) kryptonite. Recall, for example, how people reacted to the news of Apple’s new rose gold Macbook (exceeded only by the fervor over the matching iPhone last year). Now, not only is rose gold jewelry ubiquitous, but Instagram has popularized rose gold headphones, handbags, and even hair.
At this point, resistance is futile. (I say this as I periodically check my rose gold iPhone housed in a rose gold-flecked case with a finger encircled by a rose gold ring—hi, walking cliché right here.) So why not give your feet a chance to get in on the fun? Rose gold shoes aren’t just for weddings or summer garden parties—although there are plenty that will do the trick for either. There are clunky metallic oxfords, thick-strapped clogs, ’70s-style wedges, and lace-up flats—all of which are begging to be Instagrammed.
