Here he is campaigning in the May 2007 local elections when he was merely leader of the Conservative visiting a shoe shop! Little did he know back then what fabulous shoe fashion awaited him as prime minister in the years to come.

Are those lovely little things called brogues? Who knows, we're not shoe experts – you'd have to ask David Cameron, prime minister of Great Britain!

Yes, by 2013 "David Cameron" had already become synonymous with "fashion footwear" thanks to beauties like these.

David always knew that shoes could be more than just glamorous – they could also show his softer, gentler, countryside-chic side.

Shoes like these helped make David more relatable and likable to the public.


Some might say David's shoes have nothing to do with his job as prime minister, and that the British press should focus on his political legacy rather than obsessing about his fancy footwear...
