“ Brand: New Look / Type: Wedge „
I bought these shoes a few months ago, before people began to unwind the secrets of the "hidden heel". Being a shoe enthusiast, I really loved that these shoes were so well-made considering how cheap they were for what you get!
I really loved the fact that when I tried these on, they were comfortable, and the heel wasn't so high that I feared I would break my heel in them. Looking in the mirror, I found that they looked just like high-top trainers, which I liked because they appeared trendy, but not too sporty. The fabric was reasonably soft (not like typical trainer material) and the heel was easily hidden inside, accentuating the length of my legs by a large amount, without anybody suspecting anything! The only downside of these shoes, in my own opinion would be the fact that on the underneath of the shoe, the sole is quite thin, just like a typical high heel, which could make your feet look very thin, and potentially tip it off as not being a high-top shoe.
The quality of these shoes were a high quality, and as expected of New Look as a store in general. They were well made, and had laces for tightness, and two Velcro straps to ensure that they were tightly fitted, and give a little extra to the look of the shoes. The colour quality is also very nice, and considering the fabric that they are made of (a fabric that appears similar to suede), the block colours have turned out to be quite dark, as they are advertised to be.
*FEELING WHILE WEARING*
When wearing these shoes, I found that the heel wasn't too high that it was obvious that I was wearing heels, and I was able to walk comfortably in them, without even feeling myself like I was wearing heels! I didn't have any trouble with having to pay attention to the way I was walking because I felt the shoe didn't feel as if the heel was as high as it seemed it was, despite being told by many people that I seemed a lot taller than usual.
The pricing of these shoes was fabulous in my opinion. You can get these shoes for around £20-25 depending on the style that you choose, which I found was a great price for what you get, considering the price I have forked out for other shoes that are not half as interesting or comfortable as these ones!
Overall, I think that these shoes were a great buy for the price that I paid, and I would definitely recommend them to people that want to keep their look quite casual and sophisticated, but still be able to add height and feel stylish while doing it! I'd recommend these shoes more for somebody that is slightly shorter than average, purely because they seem to be made to make your legs look longer than usual, which is a nice touch to add to the fact that it adds height, because it effectively makes your legs look a lot longer, while making you taller in the process.
