Oh hello there formal shoes! I have a thing for T-bar shoes; I never used to like them when I was younger but I bought a pair one time to try out and I fell in love when I started pairing them with work outfits. It makes all the difference when your shoes just click with your outfit instantly. Ever since then, I have had a love for them and the classiness they hold!
To see more of the stockings I paired them with, you’ll need to wait sadly as that review will be coming to the blog soon. Make sure you look out for What Katie Did Seamed Stockings Teal Glamour.

The Packaging: these came directly from the company in their own branded box. I have to say I really like the way they were packaged inside; the shoes were padded out completely to hold the shape and they were also surrounded by padded tissue paper to avoid any damage during transit.
I did my little shoe inspection to make sure there were no parts where it was scuffed, or glue hanging off it etc. I can say these passed the test!
Getting Them On:
On The Feet: I gotta say I love the way they look. They are such a classy formal pair, which can be dressed in so many ways. I dressed mine as if I would be going to work, but I could easily pair these with a smart casual look or add to a formal dress. They are simple, but a pair that are a timeless piece.
The t-bar doesn’t really move out of place once it is tied in place. I thought it would a little, but it doesn’t once you start walking around in them. I will say the tie straps are fiddly; as these are proper leather, they are super stiff and will need breaking in. This means a lot more war until they become slightly sifter so it won’t be hard to tie a bow at the back.
The fit of these are spot on; I was worried they might be a little tight as some brands vary in sizing, but they actually fit so well. As these are proper leather as well, they will open up slightly after constant wear so you will get that snug fit to them.
These were easy to get on, and so comfortable to be in during the day. I made sure I kept them on walking around the house, so I could really test them out and they were really nice to wear. I didn’t feel my feet ache after a few hours which is always a good sign.
The height of these I would class as medium to be honest, but they would actually be high. They don’t have any platform at the front to support the foot, so you will be on the balls of your feet when you’re in these.
I think these are a great pair, and super classy. I loved the fit, I love the quality and I love the way they look! I would certainly be recommending these for sure!
