“ Brand: New Look / Type: Pumps „
I recently bought these from new look in black when I was after some cheap white pumps to wear during the day. I originally went in for some of the ones that comes with laces but they didnt have any in dark colours in my size so I decided to try a pair of these. At first I was a bit dubious as I thought they wouldnt fit very well and would be loose on my feet with them not having any laces, but this is not the case - somehow they are a snug fit and dont 'slob' off my feet as I expected them to.
I have only seen these in black and white and they cost £6.99 from new look. They are very basic with absolutely no colour or detail to them, this however means they are quite versatile as they can be worn with most things. I sometimes like to jazz mine up a bit with colourful laces.
They are very comfortable to wear and have a decent sole in terms of thickness. The shoe itself is quite soft and flexible, I have had problems with new look shoes in the past being quite stiff and hurting the backs of my ankles and giving me blisters etc, but these are very comfortable to wear and I do quite a bit of walking about in them!
Overall I would definitely recommend these if you are looking for a nice simple pump. Personally I prefer the ones with laces but that doesnt but me off too much as I can add laces to these and they fit just as well, and they are a bargain for £6.99!
I recetly managed to get a full membership for my gym for free ad Ive started attending Zumba classes & going to Wobble Away as Im attempting to get fit and bikini ready for summer. However when I started I realised I didnt have any suitable clothing for working out in - usually I go bare foot as Im exercising in my living room so I dont need a tracksuit or trainers but I assumed the gym wouldnt appreciate me turning up barefoot so I decided to get some little pumps for working out in. I didnt want to go all out and buy some dead fancy trainers as I knew I would never wear them shopping or doing anything that didnt involve exercise so I picked up these 'New Look Laceless Sports Pumps' as they seemed to fit the purpose for me - cheap and easy to exercise in, just brilliant for my workout sessions.
Stockists: New Look & newlook.com
Sizes: These are only available in sizes 4, 5 & 6 online - although more sizes might be available in store.
Colours: You can buy these pumps in Black or White - I personally own the White shade as shown in the image with this review.
Other Info: These pumps DO NOT have laces so its best to try them on and make sure they fit perfectly as you dont want them to be too loose and keep flying off while your working out. Design for casual wear - with jeans according to New Look - although Id never wear these as daily shoes as personally I think they are a bit ugly.
If your buying these shoes online Im happy to say what you see is what you get - the colour and design look exactly the same in reality so you wont be disappointed by these pumps. The shoes are totally white in colour - maybe not the best choice of colour for shoes! - and the plastic soles have small black lines running accross them - although they arent very noticable at all. The bottom of these pumps is a quite chunky piece of plastic material which doesnt make the shoes look cheap as such but looking at that and the design overall you can tell they dont cost too much. To be honest that doesnt bother me too much as I bought these ONLY to workout in so as long as they are comfy and fitted thats all that mattered to me but if your looking for amazingly designed pumps then you might want to keep looking as design wise these arent all that. At the top of pump is a small tongue as you would expect from proper trainers and although these are laceless there are small holes that you can thread laces through if you wish - I dont see the point really as these are SUPPOSED to be laceless shoes but you do have that option will might please some people. The design isnt amazing I think you'll agree but it does the job for me as I dont wear these as everyday shoes. One thing worth mentioning is these do get dirty quite quickly - a combination of my shoes being white and made from cotton like material - however a quick rinse in the washing machine usually does the trick and they will be like new again so thats not a major problem for me.
The inside of the shoes are the same white colour and are ever so slightly padded at the bottom and the sides which makes these very comfortable for me to wear and exercise in - and they dont rub or hurt my feet in the slightest so thats a brilliant thing for me. Now as these didnt have laces I thought the might be too loose on my feet but I havent had any problem with them feeling too flimsy or loose so far so I dont think Ill need to add any laces to these anytime soon. Its actually better not having laces flapping around while your trying to do a downward dog LOL. These fit my needs perfectly as I can wobble, dance & do my pilates in these with comfort and the knowledge that my feet are nicely padded and that my pumps wont be flying off all over the place. I do have to say though if you are buying these for exercise I dont think they would be suitable for 'proper' exercise like running - I think the soles would wear down to quickly and that would make that type of exercise uncomfortable so thats worth bearing in mind.
I also assume these would be very versatile as they are quite plain in colour and design. I havent worn them with anything but trackies but I dont see why they would go with jeans or a skirt on a summers day - try it out, they just arent my personal style for wearing for anything but a workout. The design is basic so you get what you pay for but they are comfortable and easy to walk and workout in so they do the job for me. I definitely recommend them - for everyday wear of for going to the gym in. 4* pumps - they lose a star because of the simple and a little bit boring design.
Thanks For Reading.
