It’s been some time since a shoe review has appeared on the blog, so I thought I would kick-start it off with a stunning violet purple pair with some serious platform and height!
Can I just say a massive thank you to my amazeballs follower who gifted these beauties a while back?! They have been patiently waiting for these to be reviewed and splattered all over my social media!

The Packaging: I am not too impressed with. The box came through the door pretty damaged and dented in various places. Luckily the shoes had this thin plastic protection to keep the suede from getting ruined in transit.
When you get into these, you will find these are padded out in the front and then have that thin plastic rod which helps the shoes keep their shape. These were pretty flimsy and kept popping out the shoes (I put them back in for the photo).
Getting Them On: so if you’re not used to height, then I would advise you take extra care getting them on, and keeping your balance in them. Even though majority of the front is platform, these are still pretty high.
Getting these on are super easy, and if you’re wearing hosiery (like I am) they slip in even easier compared to being barefoot.
On The Feet: well can I start off by saying I absolutely love this colour! It has got to be one of my favourite that I own – purely because I haven’t had a colour like this before. It’s such a gorgeous violet colour which I think is just stunning. It’s a lovely classy colour, which can either be worn with an outfit or stand on its own as a statement piece so you can colour block with it.
The fit of these are true to size; I am glad I got a size 6 as these fit me just right. I would normally get a 5, but in this case that would have been a very snug fit on the feet. My toes have enough room at the front so they aren’t cramped and squished when walking and the back sits really well against my ankle. I haven’t had them rubbing on me yet (I suppose this is where wearing hosiery really does help) so fingers crossed it doesn’t happen if I wear these barefoot!
The feel of them are real nice; they’re a soft suede but do be careful as these can scuff super easy. I normally protect mine with a suede protector spray (I always do it as soon as they come out the packaging and leave to dry overnight) so I don’t have to worry too much about taking them out and about.
As I mentioned before, if you’re not used to platform or really high heels then I would just walk around the house in them until you’re comfortable to take them out. It will be hard work keeping that balance and not breaking an ankle, but it’ll be worth it in the end 🙂
I really do love these! The fit is great and the colour is just stunning – perfect for summer weddings to show off or adding under long clothing to give you some serious height!
