“ Brand: Iron Fist / Type: Peep Toe „
I'm a big lover of Iron Fist Heels, I bought this pair online from Shuch for about £50 (along with another 4 pairs) as there was also free delivery included. I wear heels everyday without fail, the only flat shoes I own are a pair of trainers my brother grew out of years ago!
These heels aren't the highest, but they are a good everyday heel, approximately 4.5" heel height, but with a cleverly integrated platform making them posture your foot the same way as a 3" heel, they are very comfy to wear and the open-toed design means that your toes aren't restricted in anyway (also gets rid of the horrid hot foot syndrome I often experience with closed toe shoes)
I often wear these with black or grey tights as part of daily wear, but teamed up with bright nail varnish can make a great addition to an evening outfit.
I've had a lot of use out of these shoes! They do come with delightful patterns on the soles, but these very soon get worn down (the soles wear out to black underneath, so if you walk to the sides of your feet like me, it'll be reaallyy obvious). One thing to consider is that these are CHEAP heels (relatively), and as such you should expect to be able to wear them for 'occasional use'. Wearing them everyday the colourful pattern on the heels does eventually peel (you can still pass it off as a shabby chic snakeskin/zebracorn look), but the thing that eventually stopped me wearing these is that the the actual heels are very weak, they bend easily if you don't have a perfectly straight walk so they do emphasise this movement on my ankles and puts a lot of pressure on them (the shoes don't stand up straight on their own anymore either).
I should have expected them not to age well as I don't treat them very nice, I walk through woods ad beaches in them, drive in them, run in them. So I've only got myself to blame! These heels to not respond nicely to you treating them bad! Make sure you get them re-tipped as soon as the heels wear through to metal :)
As you guys may have known by now, I am a big lover of shoes and have a collection of them that just seems to keep on growing! I have many different styles and types of shoes, and I have a pair for pretty much any outfit you could imagine.
I am a fan of Iron Fist, which is an "alternative" shoe company, that make some awesome, yet very different looking shoes. One of their pairs which I own is the Zebracorn High Heeled Peep Toe Shoes. These are a pair of court style shoes, on a 4 and a half inch think heel, with a small peeptoe front. The shoes are multi coloured in purple, blue, yellow, green and black, with a touch of pink on the end of the heel and on the peeptoe.
In theory these coolours do not sound like they will all work together on one shoe, but when you look at the shoe, you can see it really does work, and in fact it works well. I think the design is really cool, but not too in your face. These shoes are also made in ballet style flats, which I also own!
These shoes do look like they would be uncomfortable and painful for your feet, but I am happy to report that they are indeed comfortable and caused me no pain! After wearing these on many a shopping trip, and on many a night out with my friends, I have had no problems with them at all. I was worried about them pinching or rubbing on my feet, but there was nothing like this at all. My feet didn't even have a slight red mark on them from the edges of the shoes.
I found the shoe to fit my feet really well, which meant my feet felt secure in the shoes, but didn't feel like they were grabbing my feet too tight either. I have found in the past that some peep toe shoes mark up and hurt my toes, but there was no problem with these shoes. The actual body of these shoes is quite thick, and well made, which is what I think gives them the comfort and great fit.
These shoes do look like they would not be easy to walk in, but I actually found that they were really easy to walk in, and balance was just as easy as the walking. They didn't cause me any pain to walk in either, which I think is a rare thing from high heels these days. The inner sole is slightly cushioned, so this helps to keep your feet free from pain whilst you are walking, but it is not too soft that you would find walking a struggle. The heel is also very sturdy, even though it looks quite thin. It is stable enough to hold me up, and never have I even felt the slightest hint of a wobble from them.
I get a lot of comments from people when I wear these shoes. They are very eye catching, and people just have to say something about them it would seem. I have conversations with complete strangers about them in town sometimes lol. I usually wear these with a pair of slightly flared jeans, as they really go well together, but of course there is many a different outfit you can wear with them, just be sure to not wear anything that clashes with the shoes, which can be hard to do when you have such a wacky colour combination to be working with!
Anyone who has seen Iron Fist shoes for sale will know that they are not cheap to buy, and if you buy these shoes in Schuh stores or on the Schuh website, they will cost you £50 for a pair. Luckily, there is cheaper options, and I got my pair on Amazon for just under £40. There may even be a pair or two on eBay to enable you to grab a total bargain.
I do think that these shoes are totally worth the money I paid for them, as they are beautiful looking shoes, which are great quality and are so comfortable to wear and walk in. They have lasted me ages and still have plenty of wear left in them yet, in fact they still look very close to new! I give these Iron Fist Zebracorn High Heels a 5 out of 5 stars, and I totally recommend them ( unless you have a bad hip or knee problem! )
