“ Brand: New Look / Type: Court Shoes „
= = = = = =
The shoes are from New Look and are available to buy in 2 colours which are blue and the other colour which is black. Each colour has a snake print trim to it and they are both available to buy in sizes 3 - 7. The blue coloured shoes instantly grabbed my attention as I love this colour and I have so many black coloured shoes anyway that I thought I would get the blue one's to be a bit different. I also have a lovely blue dress that these would look great with. The blue shoes are made from suede like material and have a snake print trim on the heel and sole of the shoe, which is a grey colour. The heel height is 5.5" so yes these are very high. The heel is a chunky curved shaped which I thought would be much easier to walk in than a stiletto heel. On the website it recommends to use a shoe protector to help pro-long the life of your shoes. I use some suede protector for these which make them slightly waterproof so if anything is dropped on them or if they get wet it won't stain the shoes.

I purchased these from my local New Look store when they were on offer with £10 off. The normal price is £24.99 and the £10 off is only for a limited time which is why I had to have these.
Wearing the Shoes
= = = = = = = = = =
I will happily admit that I did wear these round the house a little to try and wear them in before hitting the town in them as I was so sure that my feet would be hurting by the end of the night. I actually range in shoe sizes but I found that the size 6 fitted my feet perfectly without slipping at the back. I'm used to wearing ridiculously high shoes so I could walk in these with absolutely no problems; they were actually quite comfortable and fitted round my feet nicely. They weren't too tight but weren't loose either. After a few hours, my feet did start to hurt a little, how-ever not as much as they do when wearing my slightly lower stiletto heels. I managed to walk from bar to bar without hobbling from sore feet as I sometimes find I end up doing. By the end of the night, although my feet felt a little sore, they weren't too bad and I've actually had aching feet more in other shoes which have been slightly lower.

These shoes are just so beautiful and I love the bright blue colour to them. I loved the fact that the heel is chunky but slightly curved as well as I find these easier to walk in than Stiletto's. I didn't actually plan on buying these shoes but when I saw that there was £10 off of them I had to have them. I do ensure I spray the shoes regularly with protector to keep them looking good and this seems to do the trick very well as they still look as good as new. If you love shoes and don't mind high shoes then I would recommend these to others as they are surprisingly comfortable and they look great on. I would also advise to get them quickly whilst they have money off of them. I give these shoes 4 out of 5 stars.
