~ New Look Knotted Wedge Shoes ~
Being a bit of a shoe fanatic I have to admit to owning over 60 pairs of shoes and that is after a recent clearout! And being a shoe fanatic I often pop into New Look just to see what shoes they have in and if they have any sales on and that is where I spotted these little beauties!
They had been reduced from £15.99 to £11.99 so I wasn't about to walk out without them, I also had a £5 voucher from when I exchanged something a while back so I used this too, getting the price down to a neat £6.99.
They were available in either navy or coral and I chose the latter as I thought they looked nicer and would go well with a lot of my clothes. Checking online I also spotted they were also available in black and white/monochrome yet this option wasn't available in store when I went in.
I had been looking for a pair of low wedges/heels anyway, the weather was nice and whilst I do usually wear flat pumps for everyday wear, sometimes I just wanted something a little more dressy and these fitted the bill nicely.
The shoes have a nice low casual wedge cork heel with a straw plaited trim, they are open toe sandals with a sling back. The back is adjustable and has a little gold buckle to do so.
I am rather short so some (most) of my trousers would drag under my feet if I wore them with flats and in the nicer weather it's nice to get some wear out of my plazzo's or linen trousers, these shoes helped add a little bit of height without looking like I was about to go clubbing!
I have found them very comfortable and have worn them quite a few times, but not recently as the weather has been terrible as of late and you would never think it was supposed to be summer!
I am hoping to get a lot more wear out of these shoes, I wore them daily in the nicer weather and they looked really nice. I have a tattoo on my foot and it showed this off nicely too and the shoe part is just a slim knotted band across the toes and leading up the side of the foot to the sling back.
Not only have I worn them with trousers but also with denim shorts and a dress and they look very nice on.
The best thing for me though was the comfort as I do tend to walk a lot, with the wedge being quite low I had comfort as well as style.
The coral colour I have is nice and bright and I thought they looked more modern in this colour and they go with a lot of the clothes in my wardrobe.
Whilst I see them more as a casual shoe there is no reason why they couldn't be worn for a night out but I prefer something with a little more height for a night out, they would be perfect for a lazy afternoon in a beer garden though!
Having worn them quite a few times now I can say that it is a good quality shoe, they show little signs of wear and whilst I did end up marking them on the side this soon came off with a scrub using a wetwipe. They are a canasy sort of material on the top so they are not just a simple wipe clean material but marks can be removed with a bit of elbow grease!
Thanks for reading :o) x
Summary: A nice casual wedge shoe from New Look.
