These buckled heel shoes from ASOS boast a chunky block heel, cut-out details and a woven-in floral design that draws inspiration from a luxurious, elegant fabric that has been favored by the elite throughout history.

As well as featuring an authentic woven floral jacquard upper, the ASOS SUNDANCE Jacquard Heels also feature a pin buckle fastening that reminds of the low-heeled footwear worn by the nobility of the French courts in 18th-century France.

Intricate weaving techniques are still used to this day by some of the most renowned designers for making everything from high-end dresses to luxurious outerwear pieces, accessories that take inspiration from jacquard offer consumers an affordable way to add pattern and preciousness to their outfits in a way that is neither too ornate or overwhelming; these shoes from ASOS cost just £21.
