Advantages: price, simplistic design
Disadvantages: can be hard to clean if muddy
Last year when I was at new look I bought some stuff from the sales which I later wanted to return.
I found new look does not do refunds on sale items and instead offers an exchange so I decided to look for some flat shoes to exchange with.
These were priced at £8 and caught my attention due to their plain and simple design.
I always find black pumps are really useful to buy as they can be worn with a range of outfits..
Although I have quite a collection of shoes and at times have not always worn half the ones in the bottom of my cupboard as much as I could.. I always find them handy to purchase and can't resist a good offer in the sales.
These shoes have a ribbon bow on the front of the shoe and it is pretty much the only eyecatching thing about it as it is simplistic in design. The fabric of the shoes are velvet and so look different from most standard pumps that were on sale alongside it.
They were available in a range of sizes, on trying the shoes on I found them to be really comfortable and they fitted my feet perfectly. Wearing them a few times I had no problems with them, I avoided wearing them on days where the weather was bad as I felt they would get wrecked in the rain.
Due to the material of the shoes, they were also a bit more difficult to clean than previous shoes.
I noticed my other flat shoes could be cleaned easily with a wet cloth but these needed a good scrub to get any mud off, and even then I was cautious as I didn't want to make the material look different.
Overall a nice pair of flats that lasted me a few months before I started wearing different ones.
At £8 they are a good price for basic flats, but if they were not on sale I can't say I would of purchased them.
I still give them 5 stars from me for being a decent pair of flats that had a good use out of them.
Thanks for reading :)
