And then comes in some perspex to mix it up a little. Now I had a pair before which were fully perspex all the way round, with a black sole and heel. This is a nice little switch up from that with the use of velvet 🙂

The Packaging: now this is new. I haven’t received a pair of shoes like this before. The outer packaging was a plain box (pretty sturdy box too) and when you get in, you find the shoes wrapped in mesh pouches and inserted into this weird plastic bag that covers only half of them. I have no idea what was going on there…
So I inspected them all over, making sure there was no marks anywhere … It was all good 🙂
Getting Them On: so these are easily enough to slip into. I will say that normally UK 5.5 is like the best fit for me, especially being in-between sizes… And this time it turns out to be quite big! I am so confused with shoe sizing nowadays! You would think they use a generic tool to do this, but clearly not!
On The Feet: so as these were just slightly big on me, I decided to pop in some foot pads for the time being. I will need to dig out some heel grips as well to help keep the foot intact in the shoes whilst walking.
The design I think is real nice; it’s pretty classy compared to most perspex heels you can get nowadays. I like the toe and heel touch;
it’s like when you get RHT hosiery, but in a shoe form.
What I do love most about it is that you don’t get a lot of foot exposure in these; it’s mainly the sides, but forward facing these do look real nice.
The fit got better after that bit of padding was added, but I will need to play around with this and make sure it’s discreet. I felt my toes were not cramped at any point in these, there was no rubbing on the sides of the feet; I thought there might be as sometimes the perspex material can do that is not sealed correctly.
The soles on these were not too bad; I thought they would be pretty slippy to begin with, but these had some decent grip (as long as you’re not running on smooth flooring to begin with).
The heel height I would class as high, I won’t bother saying medium as there is no such thing in my eyes (well there is as I do have some heels like that but still…)
Can you tell I really like these? I think these are a lovely take on the normal perspex heels, and I am so glad I finally have a pair like this. This is one I would’t hesitate wearing to work compared to my other ones where I didn’t think it suited office attire as much; it was more of a party / going out heel.
