New Look Knotted Cork Wedge Shoes
Advantages: Comfortable, Smell wedged heel, Easy to walk in
Disadvantages: May not be suitable for everyone
I went into my local New Look store to try and find some shoes for my friend's wedding which was at the weekend. The wedding was very casual and was going to be outside (thankfully it was a lovely, warm day!). The dress I was wearing could either be dressed up or down. It was blue in colour with beige flowers, so ideally I wanted a pair of beige/off white coloured shoes. Unfortunately all the beige style shoes I found in my local New Look store, none of them were my size. I kept walking round the shoe section looking at the different shoes and then thought maybe I could go for blue instead to match the dress. I finally found these shoes which were a perfect blue as they matched the colour of the dress I was wearing. I didn't want any shoes with a really big heel and I didn't want anything too dresses up.
~ THE SHOES ~
The shoes are wedges and are available in sizes 4 - 9. The wedges come in 3 different colours including Navy, Coral & Black Pattern. I chose the Navy colour as my dress was this colour. The shoes have a cork wedge heel and are open toe, with a sling back buckle fastening. I would describe the rest of the material on the shoe as Canvas as it has the feel and look of canvas. The shoes cost me £15.99 which I thought was reasonable. Not only would the shoes look great with my dress but they would look great with jeans, dresses and skirts during the summer as well. The shoes were great as they looked casual, but could probably be dressed up a little as well. I range in shoe sizes but am normally a size 6 when it comes to heels. I tried on the wedges and the 5 were a little too tight so I decided to go for the size 6 as these felt more comfortable and not as tight at the others. The height of the wedge is approximately 3 inches so they aren't really high like some of the other wedges I saw in the shop.
I wore the shoes to my friend's wedding and I was expecting them to hurt my feet a little. Although the ground I had to walk on wasn't the flattest I managed to walk fine in these without wobbling or falling over. I wore the shoes for approximately 5 hours and my feet didn't really hurt at all when walking around in the shoes. I didn't dance in the shoes; how-ever I think I would have done this very easily. The shoes were comfortable to wear and the straps didn't dig into my feet or rub, causing blisters or sores. When I eventually got home and took the shoes off my feet only hurt a tiny bit as this I was surprised by.
As the shoes aren't very high and are very summery looking, I can wear these shoes casually with jeans, a dress or skirt when going to town or out for a meal/to a pub. For £15 I think these shoes are well worth the money as they seem to be made very strong and are comfortable to wear. I would recommend these to others, especially if you don't like wearing really high shoes as these are perfect. The shoes earn a well deserved 5 out of 5 stars.
