The I-can’t-take-my-eyes-off-you-pink shoe is from Nude of Australia. It’s glossy, bold, and might not take no for an answer. Its companions, a little calmer with their watercolour patterns done in pared-back hues are also from Nude, and both are at Ultra Shoes in Manners Mall.
Dotted along the display shelves are young plastic trees in black pots. These are mini-reminders that Ultra supports Project Crimson where a percentage of sales goes to the protection of the country’s pohutukawa and rata trees.
