London Rebel Tribal Snakeskin Platform Peep Toe Wedges
One of my favourite shoe shops from my hometown was having a huge summer clearance sale and I went a bit crazy online with my spending spree. One of the pairs that I bought was these Tribal Snakeskin Platform Peep Toe Wedges made by London Rebel.
These shoes came in quite a disappointing box I have to admit. I like to keep all of my shoes in their original boxes in my wardrobe, stacked up, this keeps them safe and clean and also helps me to keep them organised. The cardboard box was a bright red with London Rebel written in black font on the front. You get the usual padding and tissue paper inside for transport and storage.
These really are striking shoes to look at. The heel and wedge looks huge and I suppose it is measuring an impressive approximate heel height of 5.5 inch/14 cm. The shoe from the side looks a monstrous height, with the front wedge going from the 5.5 inch to a 2 inch and finally down to a 1 inch height at the toe area.
The bottom of the platform has a strong rubber sole with a ribbed surface for grip saying Made in China on it! The back of the heel I surprisingly thin for a wedge shoe being less than 1 inch width, so you have to be quite sturdy on your feet to wear these.
The overall pattern on the shoe and wedge is a tribal snakeskin pattern; I loved it as soon as I saw them. The snakeskin colour is an almost golden brown and beige colour that is lighter and darker in places on the shoe. As mentioned the wedge shoes are slip on, with quite low side panels down to an almond style peep toe. The lower foot bar before the peep toe is again quite thin and rounded. They are a very impressive and stylish shoe to look at.
These shoes are simple to slip on and go, I got a size 7 in these and they are quite a tight/small size 7, so perhaps may have been better with an 8 which I almost never have to buy. Once on my feet however these do not move or slide about which is exactly the type of wear that you want in such high heels. The almond peep toes are very comfy and look great with bright red polished toe nails.
These wedges are surprisingly light to wear and are really easy to walk in thanks to the large wedge heel across the bottom. The front of the shoe is slightly curved upwards, so the sole is not completely flat and this makes you unintentionally roll your foot whilst walking. I haven't worn these for long periods of time at once but have had no pain or blisters from the shoes. I was really surprised at how comfy I found these.
These wedges go with anything, but particularly look great with skinny jeans and maxi skirts. They give my legs a really long and lean appearance which looks amazing I have to say. I absolutely love these shoes!!!
I bought these from my favourite shoe shop called Cachet Shoes for a bargain £20 in their sale. She has since sold out but they are available at ASOS and Amazon and lots of places online. Their RRP is £55 so I got a great price!
