“ Brand: New Look / Type: Wedge Shoes „
I love summer! It gives you the opportunity to wear pretty shoes and as I had a new jumpsuit to wear for a wedding I needed to buy some new shoes too. I wanted something high as my jumpsuit was quite long in the leg but I also wanted something that would be comfortable too. It seemed that the current trend of some wedges would be the perfect choice.
I headed to new look to browse as I am usually impressed with their range of shoes and their prices. The day I visited the shop actually had a 20% off promotion across the whole footwear range. You can imagine my delight when I found a pair of wedges reduced from £24.99 to £15.00 as with the 20% off they would cost me just £12.00.
The wedge I am referring to is the ditsy floral wedge. It has a black textile top part which is covered in a small floral print. The bottom part of the wedge is made with a raffia style base so it looks quite casual yet I also feel they are perfect for nights out with a jumpsuit or maxi dress for example. The shoe is a sling back style with a peep toe front.
What I love about these shoes is that despite the big 4.2" heel they do not feel overly high as your full foot is being supported by the wedge rather than a thin heel. They are quite comfortable to wear but I personally wouldn't wear them to go shopping or anywhere where I had to walk a lot as I know my feet would end up aching as by the end of the wedding where I was standing most of the night I did feel a little burning sensation in my feet.
The sling back part of the shoe is slightly elasticated and features a little silver buckle where you can adjust it. I find I need to have the strap as tight as possible so to stop my foot slipping out all of the time.
The peep toe section of the shoe is very small and I did find that this was where I experienced issues with the shoe as initially the material rubbed against my toes which was quite uncomfortable. You can only really see your big toe through this section of the shoe.
Despite these shoes being quite comfortable they are still pretty high and I would advise that care should be taken when wearing them as I found out whilst trying to step in to a skirt whilst wearing them and falling promptly on my bum! They can also make you wobble on uneven surfaces but I am not all that used to walking in heels anymore and suspect that is just me being a bit rubbish!
These shoes are now selling for just £10.00 down from £24.99 and this is a real bargain in my opinion! They are available in all adult sizes and well worth a purchase I feel!
Thank you for reading my review!
