“ Brand: New Look / Type: Sandals „
I purchased these shoes for £14.99 from newlook, i purchased these in navy, but these are also available in white, coral, and black. The white and coral are currently on sale for just £10, but i decided to spend the extra £4.99 since white is ruined too easily and i find i dont have a lot that would go with coral. These are available in sizes between 5- 9.
Espadrille shoes are top trend this season, and its easy to see why, particularly with the wedges which give a very casual and comfortable way of wearing heels and thus adding extra height. These particular wedge espadrilles have a cross over peep toe design, but obviously wedge espadrilles being so popular at the moment, there are many different designs to go for. I also love the design on the sole of these shoes, although this can obviously not be seen while wearing them. I have walked nearly 2 hours wearing these shoes, and i was worried at first that this would kill my feet, as despite the casual sandal design, i had to keep reminding myself that these were still high shoes. But i forgot this very quickly, these are so comfortable you forget you are even in heels, just convinient extra height.
These shoes are described as straw wedges, which i prefer to the similar cork wedges and they seem to be more durable as well, since when i had cork wedges they looked very worn after little over 2 months. I purchased these in march, and they still look as new despite the fact i wear them almost every day, easy to do when they go with anything, and are so comfortable. The price for the amount of wear you get from these is brilliant. The only place you would get them for less than £15 would be ebay or a charity shop, and the effort of shopping around to find the right size and colour you want at a charity shop can be off putting, and once you add post and packaging on ebay the price difference i should imagine would be very small, i would say newlook are a very good place to purchase these, and they also do student discount which to me is always a bonus!
These are the perfect casual wedge heels for the summer, comfortable, durable and at a good price. The only problem is, is that with the current unpredictable weather it seems you get dressed and put these on to match the nice sunny day outside, then it rains an hour later and these will take forever to dry! Sudden showers are a huge worry when wearing these due to the fact they will stay wet hours after it has stopped raining, i often bring a different pair of shoes out with me just in case. But this small downside takes nothing away from these shoes, i love them, and plan on buying more in some different colours.
