“ Brand: George / Type: Ballerina „
I like to wear little ballet style pumps with black trousers. They look smart and classy but are comfortable and easy to walk in too. I wear ballet pumps out quite quickly as I tend to live in them and flip flops during the summer so I popped into George at Asda one weekend after my last pair and worn out to the point where they were just no longer suitable for going out.
I was really pleased to come across a pair of ballet pumps in black for the nice sum of £6. I thought this was a great price and although not quite as cheap as Primark it was definately cheap enough for me not to turn my nose up! I was also pleased to see that Asda George is very generous in its ladies shoe sizes. I am a size 8 in a shoe and Asda shoes start from a size 3 all the way up to a size 9 which I think is very good.
The ballet pumps are a matt black and made of a synthetic leather. They are not realy leather but what can you expect for £6?! They have a round stitch running around the trim to give the pumps a little on the design front. It stops them from looking really plain and it is a nice little touch to them.
The pumps have a rounded toe and are completely flat. The inside of the of the pumps is made from a shiny gold material though the picture DooYoo has shows the inside as black. The shoes are are good fit too - they are quite wide so would be ideal for woman who need a wider fit though I must stress they are not advertised as being a wider fit.
These pumps feel lovely when they are on. They are comfortable and very easy to walk in. My feet felt cushioned inside the pumps and my feet didn't fele the blows from the floor as I walked. I wore them a fair bit during the summer and found that my feet didn't ache or feel uncomfortable at all.
These pumps do make your feet a little hot though on the very hot summer days (not that we saw many of those this summer!) so I wouldn't advise wearing them when it is boiling hot out as your feet just end up feeling sticky and hot which ultimately leaves you feeling uncomfortable.
My only issue with these shoes is that I did have to wear them in a little bit as they were quite tight despite being a size 8. It left me thinking that I probably should have purchased a size 9 but after a few wears, they moulded pretty well to the shape of my feet. I would probably recommend trying the size up from your usual size.
These pumps go with any piece of clothing - whether it be to dress up some jeans, trousers or even a skirt. They go with absolutely anything and that is what you want with a pair of shoes I think.
I have been more than impressed with the quality of these shoes and I despite wearing them during the summer fairly often, they aren't showing too many signs of consistant wear and I do think they will be fairly long lasting. Highly recommended.
For work we have to wear black shoes, and as I am unable to wear heeled shoes I feel somewhat limited in what I can wear. Normally I wear a pair of comfy Kickers but they are quite bulky and when we have the heaters on my feet get way too hot so I decided to try out a pair of ballerina style shoes as I knew they would go ok with a pair of black trousers.
I saw an ideal pair in Asda for just six pounds so I thought that was a decent price to pay for a pair of work shoes and popped them in the trolley without even trying them on. The shoes are really quite plain looking and though they are supposed to resemble a ballet shoe I would describe it as a kind of court shoe without the heel maybe. The shoes have the appearance that they are made out of leather but they are made out of a type of plastic I would imagine and they are quite stiff whereas leather would be more flexible.
Although they are quite stiff shoes they are comfortable and bend easier when walking than I first anticipated as the sole did feel like quite hard to bend at first. I was happy when wearing them for the first time as they didn't rub on my feet at all like some new shoes can, and especially being made out of this type of material I thought that would happen. They are very comfy to walk and sit in although I did find that my feet felt more sweaty than normal.
A few months down the line the shoes aren't in great shape to be honest, the sole is coming away from the shoe and I am unable to wear them any longer, but for six pounds I can't really complain.
The ballerina style shoes start at size four and go all the way up to size 9 which is great, and even better they do a 6 and a half which is my size! There aren't enough places that cater for half sizes so this was a really good find.
I would recommend the ballerina style shoes as they are ok for the price. Four out of five Dooyoo stars!
Thank you for reading my review :)
For my birthday, at the beginning of July, my boyfriend gave me some money to buy some new clothes. Being an avid bargain hunter, I had a browse around Asda for new clothes and when I saw spotted these George Ballerina Style Shoes on the shelf I bought a pair.
These flat black shoes are very basic-looking and they loosely resemble ballet shoes. However they're not made of leather, they're made form 'other materials,' but for £6.00 I wouldn't expect anything more!
The material looks like leather, but it's not as flexible - it's a harder material. However I still find these shoes relatively comfortable, they are easy to walk in, they don't rub my feet like other cheap shoes have in past and they don't turn them a funny colour either!
These shoes are available in a range of sizes, starting at a 4 and going through to a 9, there's also a size 61/2 also available.
I bought my first pair of George Ballerina Style Shoes at the beginning of July and they didn't leave my feet for three months, mainly because they go with virtually anything - including work and casual wear. But last week I noticed that my shoes were starting to fall apart - which isn't surprising considering they were £6 and they've been wore virtually constantly - so I decided to buy two more pairs to last me into winter.
Granted, George Ballerina Style Shoes aren't fantastic quality, but they do the job (for a few months at least) and at £6.00 a pop you really can't grumble!
