New Look Canvas Espadrille
Advantages: Wide range of styles, Comfortable, Fashionable, Decent Price
I am a young student, therefore I am quite concious of fitting in with the latest trends and fashion. I have my own personal style, but I like to incorporate various fashion elements in to it. A few months ago saw the return of espadrilles, which are slip on airy shoes, and to be frank quite a blast from the past. I have to admit that when they first came out I thought they were quite ugly and not something I was rushing to purchase. However, the more I have been seeing them around, the more I have grown to like them.
These were only around £7 from New Look, however there was an offer on when I brought them, where you could get two pairs for £9.99 if I recall correctly. I picked up the plain black ones as shown in the image, as well as a pair of peach pink ones too. They had such a wide range of espadrilles on offer, including blue, pink, orange, white, as well as stripey pairs and some floral ones which were very pretty, but definitely for the bolder and braver people.
The best thing about these shoes is that they are quite comfy, and not a bulky shoe to have to drag around in the summer. They are very airy, and therefore keep your feet quite cool, and once you have squeezed your way into them, they do actually become quite comfortable after getting used to them. When you first try them on, they do appear quite tight, but don't be deceived by this, as they do sort of stretch out once you've got in to them.
Despite being a quite odd looking shoe, they do tend to pair up with various outfits well, particularly the black ones being very versatile. I often find myself wearing these with chinos and a plain top, however they suit various trousers and jeans. The more colourful versions of these shoes are great for giving your outfit the wow factor, and helping you to stand out from the crowd. They are perfect for daytime, casual looks, and I find these shoes so nice because they are a lot different from anything else I own.
One thing to note is the quality of these shoes. Just by looking at them, you know they are not going to be the strongest wearing shoes, however New Look are a brand in which I expect a good quality, and generally with all of my other shoes from there, they have been very long lasting and good in quality. Unfortunately, even though I was very impressed with the way these looked, they simply did not last long enough. After a few wears of these, they were breaking apart which I was not very impressed with.
Overall, I think these espadrilles deserve three stars. This is because I feel that they look great, are a fair price, but the quality of these shoes really knocks these down. Therefore, if you are after espadrilles which you are wanting to wear on a regular basis, I would not recommend these New Look ones. Thanks for reading.
Summary: Quality is not good enough.
