I've been in love with Kurt Geiger for years and years, I've been buying shoes from them since I was in my early teens. I've bought them from the Kurt Geiger Store, from House of Fraser and from Selfridge's. They always seem to have sales on in House of Fraser too, so I can often get Kurt Geiger shoes discounted, which is great for my bank balance!
Over the years I've bought sandals, heels, dolly shoes, boots, and two pairs of Kurt Geiger's version of the Ugg boot. All of these shoes have been very good quality and have never broken. I do get swollen feet in the summer, meaning I get blisters, but that happens with any pair of shoes I get. They've never been especially uncomfortable, and they've never fallen apart.
I did once buy a pair of Superga shoes from Kurt Geiger, and I did a review about these shoes, slating them quite badly, but to be fair these shoes are not designed by Kurt Geiger, simply stocked in their store so I don't blame KG.
I've also bought jewellery from Kurt Geiger, and that too has been very good quality and really versatile. I have four pairs of necklaces (the necklaces came in pairs). One pair are chains, one neon pink and one neon yellow, both with gems attached. They can be worn together or separately, and go with loads of my clothes. They are very good quality and the gems haven't fallen off or anything.
I really love the quality and stylishness of Kurt Geiger, its a brand that has never failed me. It can be a little pricey, but the quality and style makes up for it. One of my favourite shoe brands.
I absolutely adore shoes and am just one of those girls that can just never have enough. I buy shoes form new look and h&m all them time but it definitely is a treat when I am able to get my hands on a designer pair. I don't really know how long Kurt Geiger has been around for but it seems to have become more popular over the last year than ever before. I got my first pair of Kurt Geiger sandles given to me very luckily by a family member and I have been obsessed ever since.
I own four pairs of Kurt Geiger shoes and they have to be four of my nicest shoes. I have flats for everyday use and heels for a dressier occasion and all of them are very comfortable to walk in. I have never been to an actual store, I usually just order online and I haven't ever had problems with the fitting of the shoe, which means they are very true to size, nor have I had comfort problems. The quality is great, very high end looking and quite unique, but I can't say that about all of their shoes. I am a very picky and choosy person and I always find that they have quite an outrageous collection and only a few simple pretty shoes. Saying that, the ones that I do choose are very pretty and are unlike anything that I see on the high street or other websites online.
Taking care of your shoes is a must if you want them to last. I do take care of my shoes by wiping them down with a dry cloth after every use and putting them away in their box. I know it sounds absurd but I now own shoes from 6 years ago that are still in perfect condition. No matter where you get them from or how much for, taking care of your shoes will definitely make them last a lot longer.
Over all, I have found Kurt Geiger's service has been great. The ease of use of their website is amazing, their delivery is pretty fast and the products all come boxed up and protected to avoid any sort of damage to the shoe which is what I do expect from them considering Kurt Geiger is a designer shoe company.
As far as price is concerned, Kurt Geiger is pretty expensive and I refuse to spend over 50 pounds on a pair of shoes. Hence I shop online. They have a specific page dedicated to reduced shoes that are quite a lot cheaper than their original price, sometimes even less that 50% off. I have bought shoes from 15 pounds to 30 pounds on their website and that is a complete bargain considering I am getting a designer pair of shoes. Shops like new look and h&m have shoes that are dearer than that.
I love their shoes and will continue buying them. At least once a month I will go on their website and see whats in their sale collection. There always seems to be new things which is great. Even to pay full price for Kurt Geiger shoes would be totally worth it.
This is a review for a purchase from the Kurt Geiger website. I ordered two pairs of shoes on Saturday afternoon and I had them by Monday!! They were sent on Sunday and processed overnight. And the shoes are absolutely amazing!!! Well worth every penny and I would recommend to anyone to order online because the service is outstanding. :)
Kurt Geiger is an American-owned footwear retailer that has a number of stores and concessions around the globe. Since opening a store in London in the 60s the brand has expanded and grown with a lot of success.
I recently visited the Covent Garden branch in central London as I pass it every day on my way to work and through the window all the shoes all look so glamorous! Inside the branch, the shop is laid out very intricately with added visual merchandising of mirrors and glass everywhere making it all very chic. They currently sell men and women shoes with the odd accessory like purses. The staff in this branch were all very young, attractive females in their early to mid twenties who (bless their souls!) were wearing sky scraper heels. Poor things I have no idea how they do all day in them, but will admit they do look fabulous!
After trying on numerous pairs of 6 inch spiked heeled court shoes which I could barely sit in, let alone stand or walk in reality hit me and I gave up the dream (which also would have cost me £110 yikes!) haha. Back on planet earth I purchased a pair of simple flat sandals which were in the sale and only £30. Still a bit much for a sandal, but I am aware I am really paying for the name more than the comfort or quality of the shoe even!
The heels I have to say are uncomfortable and I cannot imagine myself wearing anywhere other than travelling via car and sitting down the whole night. They do all look amazing, and having never owned a pair of their heels personally, my sister has and she has had a pair for 2 years so I will say the quality is there. With the flats, these are much more comfortable (although I have had better!) and I hope these sandals will see me through a good few more summers! The customer service in store was courteous so I can't complain on this front either, so overall I do like this brand.
I have no problem with their shoes, but this is an unreasonable company that will try to restrict your statutory rights.Under the Sale of Goods Act, customers have the right to return any defective shoes. The manager at Covent Garden refused to refund my defective shoes. She then secretly fixed my shoes and tried to pass them off as non-defective, despite her promise not to fix them. She was supported by Kurt Geiger's customer relations team all along.Bottom line is, don't bank on their "returns policy" because they will act illegally to restrict your legal rights. Don't buy from their stores either, I always order online through third-party retailers who actually stick to the law.
I have four pairs of Kurt Geiger shoes, they're gorgeous and comfy. Service at covent garden is really bad though. Sales assistants are generally intimidating and unhappy, and they wouldn't let you return full-priced items with friction marks on the bottom! They don't tell you at the point of sale, but if you try on the shoes on too much they become "unsaleable". I didn't expect that for a pair of £80 peep-toes!Like the previous reviewer said, don't buy anything unless you're completely happy. Their returns policy seems rather unpredictable and arbitrary. Prices online can be a lot cheaper, plus you don't have to put up with nightmare service.
Bad customer service! I agree with all the other reviews about the fantastic style and quality across all KG brands but was prompted to review today having received dreadful customer service in their canary wharf branch.
I bought a pair of shoes on sale last week. As it was my lunch break I was in a bit of a rush and wasn't sure about the shoes at all. I asked the shop assistant and she said they looked great (don't they always?!), I still wasn't sure but thought I should try them with the outfit I had in mind. I asked about the returns policy and she said 'for sale items full refunds are only given with 7 days on purchase'. Now i appreciate they need to get rid of old stock, that's the reason they're on sale in the first place, but I did think it's a bit of rubbish returns policy. However, finding the shoes really did look AWFUL on me in the outfit at home I returned within 5 days. The man at the counter said in fact there are NO FULL REFUNDS on ANY sale items, you could only get a credit note within 7 days and beyond that they are TOTALLY unrefundable. Does anyone think this is a very poor policy? It doesn't give much chance to return something unsuitable and when you are spending £100 odd per pair you need to make sure it's a good investment! He made a big fuss about the return and laughed at me for thinking it could be returned at all, basically said I was lying when I said someone had misquoted me their policy, even quizzing a colleague as if to prove they couldn't be wrong!! I couldn't believe how rude he was.
The funny thing was as I waited for my credit note (fairly sure I would never use it as I rarely find things I like in there on sale and I can't afford to spend more than I spent that time) he had a really strange sudden change of heart and decided to refund my card. I really did appreciate this, as I say not sure when I could have used the credit note, but the point is the damage had already been done as he had been so unpleasant and practically laughed in my face. A very strange experience, I will not be going back.
I am totally in love with Shoes and have in excess of 60 designer pairs. I've recently came to purchase one Carvela shoes and one KG shoes, they are both very pretty, sexy and comfortable.
Kurt Geiger is a luxury brand, with an image to upload within the shoe industry. KG have 4 brands, Kurt Geiger, KG, Carvela and Solea. The review is on KG and Carvela ladies Shoes, as I own a pair of each and have worn them.
I find KG shoes to be very sexy with an extreme designs such as weird and wonderful platforms and to funky heel designs. KG usually have bright coloured shoes, very eye catching.
KG shoes usually have very high heels with multimple platforms, so if you want sky high heels then KG is the right shoe for you. Carvela is more stylish and feminine with more sassy and sexy heels. The designs from KG is more funky and retro and the designers for Carvela are more sassy and stylish.
Shoes are usually from £200 and upwards, but I think the quality you get it's def worth spending that much money and they will prob last you a long time and they are very comfortable, even after a night of dancing.
You can buy KG shoes from John Lewis, Fenwick, KG stores or online. KG has 26 stores and 196 flag ship stores and usually some at most airprots, so if you're in need of buying KG Shoes you don't' have to look far.
I have recently become quite a shoes kinda gal. However, as i am also a student it is not viable to splurge on a pair of the lastest designer louboutins. Therefore, the next best thing is definitely kurt geiger (or their sister company carvela). The majority of the shoes are very similar to the recent designer brands and they are always bang on trend. Futhermore, the majority of their shoes look like they could have come from a top designer brand. Their shoes are very comfortable and with shoes i do believe you get what you pay for. Yes, there are quite expensive and a pair of heels will probably set you back around £100. However, if you buy a pair of classic black heels. They will never go out of fashion, feel very comfortable on a long night and last you plenty of wear.
Saying that, the last pair of kurt geiger shoes i bought were in the sale so if you are a bit low on cash - wait till january/july sales and pick up a comfy heeled bargain!
Kurt Geiger are a luxurious shoe brand which are fashion and trend focused, but also stand out from the usual high street offerings because of their strong image cultivated by their design team who "scour the globe sourcing inspiration for new trends". Kurt Geiger shoes are edgy and on-trend, but also pretty and feminine, and surprisingly versatile. Kurt Geiger have 4 own brands, Kurt Geiger, KG and Carvela and Solea, and stock loads of other big names. This review is of the main Kurt Geiger line, and their diffusion KG line - Kurt Geiger stock shoes for women and men, but I'm only reviewing for the ladies, because that is where my expertise is!
The main "Kurt Geiger" range has the perfect mix of classic design and style, with a modern, fashion-focused twist. The shoes are really high quality, most of them are leather, and a lot of the designs have a leather sole, so look after them - there is loads of shoe care guidance on the website. There is a broad range of styles, and the timeless quality of a lot of these shoes makes them suitable for most ages. These shoes aren't cheap, and are at the top end of the high street, but the extra you pay is for the quality materials and the extra design, which makes these shoes stand out from the usual high street offerings. High heeled shoes and sandals are about £140 - £220, with a few pairs tipping over the £300 mark. Pumps and flat sandals cost £110 - £150, trainers about £110, and boots are about £300 - £450. Like I say they aren't cheap, but they are beautiful.
It's my own fault, I always buy the highest heels, and so I have to say that I can't vouch for the comfort of these babies. I bought a pair of patent black courts for a wedding just before Christmas with 10cm heels, and by the end of the day my feet were on fire. Saying that these are no worse than other heels of the same height. I do have one pair of Gina shoes with a really high heel that fit like a glove, but even though you are paying more for Kurt Geiger than most of the high street, you don't get the quality you can get from some designer brands. I'm sure the flats are more comfy, but I just can't bring myself to pay over £100 for flat shoes, even though I would probably get more wear out of most of them than from 10cm heels - what can I say, it's illogical but I don't think it's ever going to change!
Kurt Geiger also have a diffusion range called KG - these shoes are younger, and more vibrant than the main range, and personally are my favourites. The shoes are often embellished with flowers, jewels and other decorative features, and there are some really unusual designs and colours available. KG is also cheaper than the main range. High heeled shoes and sandals are about £80 - £130, pumps and flat sandals cost £55 - £100, and boots are about £100 - $150. I'm really pleased with my Skandar boot (a bit like an Ugg) which I got for £85, but which are now only £60 - so check out the sale to see if you can get a bargain.
The spring summer 09 collection is available now. There are some really pretty jewelled pumps, but I really have my eye on the Grantham Leather Wedge Sandals. These are so cute, with a green woven heel and thick platform sole. They are £200, but so wearable. I'll be in them all summer if I get them, but I'll have to keep saving up. (Oh no - I just checked the website for my review and have now spotted another pair of amazing wedges, the Goodwin. I love them! There's no way I can spend £400 on wedges, I'm going to have to choose, but I love them both so much! Help!!!)
A few weeks ago Grazia showed a sneak-peak of the new Fashionista range - which is arriving in March. I literally cannot wait until these are in stock - I've got my eye on some amazing brown leather sandals with bright pink platforms, pink and lime detail and 12cm stiletto heels, and some cone heeled oyster grey courts with loads of toe cleavage - they look excruciatingly painful, but very very beautiful.
-- WHERE TO GET THEM? --
-- On the high street --

If there isn't a stand-alone store near you then Kurt Geiger have concessions in department stores including House of Fraser, John Lewis, Selfridges and Liberty. There is a store locator on their website - http://www.kurtgeiger.com/store-locator
Kurt Geiger stores and concessions can also be found in France, Ireland, Italy and Dubai.
-- Online --
There is plenty of choice for buying Kurt Geiger shoes online - check out their website at http://www.kurtgeiger.com/ They stock both their own brands Kurt Geiger, KG, Carvela and Solea and luxury shoes from a number of designers including Gucci, Prada, Jimmy Choo, and Christian Louboutin - unfortunately my budget doesn't stretch to these at the moment - but it's nice to be able to longingly gaze at them - or you can easily set the filter so they don't trouble your eyes - or your plastic! I really like the website filters - it makes it very easy to use. I have ordered shoes from the website a number of times and they have always arrived really quickly without any problems. Shoes come by parcelforce and you have to sign for them - delivery is £3.99. I did receive one pair that had a tiny scuff on the heel (you could hardly see it - but they did cost £240) but I had no problem returning them for a new pair with KG paying for all the postage. Join the email list as the news letter quite often promotes discount codes or sales. You can also find Kurt Geiger shoes on asos, but the choice is a lot more limited.
