“ Brand: F&F / Type: Sandals „
I love shoes! However, lately money is really tight, so it has been a while since I have been able to purchase anything that isn't a necessity. Last month though, my Mum gave me a £10 Tesco Clothing voucher which she wasn't going to use. Finally, I could update my wardrobe a little.
I browsed through the website for days and days, but struggled to find anything £10 or under. Then I came across these, F&F Closed Wedge Espadrille Sandals.
Espadrilles seem to be everywhere this summer, and a must have item for both men and women. These particular shoes are priced at £8 and available both online at the Clothing At Tesco website and instore.
I purchased the shoes online. They are advertised as traditional espadrilles with a midheight woven wedge heel, a canvas closed round toe and canvas strap. They are available in black and cream. Or, at least the website says they are available in black and cream...
I eagerly awaited the arrival of my pretty new shoes, and received them two days after ordering.
Immediately after opening my parcel I was disappointed. I bought these shoes as they were advertised as cream, a colour which I thought would be perfect for the summer months and go with everything. In the item description the colour is listed as cream, and there is also a picture of the shoe, which clearly shows a shoe with a brown wedged heel and cream canvas closed toe.
The shoes I received are not cream, and are in fact dark brown. The canvas part of the shoe is dark brown,
and the wedge is a darker shade of brown, with a brass coloured buckle. They are not awful by any means, but at the end of the day they are not the shoes advertised, and not what I ordered. I have contacted Clothing at Tesco about this problem, and was told the information was wrong on the website, and I had not received the wrong shoe. I was told this would be immediately, but it still has not been done.
Other than this issue, I am impressed with the shoes.
I have worn them on a couple of occasions now, and love them.
They are really fashionable, and I have seen very similar shoes in other stores for around £20-£30. They go with everything, and are perfect for the summer season.
I was impressed with the quality of the shoes. For £8 I thought they may look cheap, but this is not the case. They are lightweight and really comfortable to wear. I have worn them on a couple of trips which have involved a lot of walking, and have not experienced any rubbing or blisters which normally always happens with new shoes. The only thing I do not like is how tight the canvas is at the front of the shoe, it does not leave much room for you to wiggle your toes. I have found though the material has become a little slacker after wearing them a couple of times.
So far they seem quite durable. I have worn them a few times, and they still look as good as new. Been mostly canvas, I am able to wipe them clean, which keeps them looking in good condition.
These espadrilles go with everything, from a pretty summer dress to a simple pair of shorts. For the price, you cannot go wrong. Even if they only last the summer I will have got my money's worth.
Great value for money
THEY ARE NOT CREAM
Canvas a little tight
