“ Brand: Priceless / Type: Court Shoes „
Being only a size 2 shoe, I really struggle to find decent shoes to wear, especially heels. Most things in my size are in the children's sections and just don't appeal to me which is a shame. Don't get me wrong, I can get certain things like boots nice and cheap this way because they really are like mini adult shoes these days, but for high heels, I have to turn to the internet to solve my problem. Luckily for me, I stumbled across the website www.petitfeet.co.uk which stocks an enormous range of shoes in small sizes (1, 2 and 3) in adult styles... it's like heaven for me! I've purchased far too many shoes from here, and one of these purchases has been the Priceless Round Toe Heel Bar Court Shoes.
I chose these particular shoes because I have narrow feet and heels and struggle to keep court shoes on my feet without a strap across the front, and obviously these fit the the bill perfectly. They are from Priceless which are a budget shoe range available online and in Priceless and Barratt's stores, so the shoes aren't leather but since they aren't every day shoes for me and will only be worn for special occasions, this isn't really a problem for me. Even so, they are very soft to wear and the material looks good enough that they don't look too cheap.
The heel height on these shoes is 10cm, so really gives me a much needed height boost. The heel is a stiletto style so it is a thin heel and therefore isn't overly comfortable to wear for a sustained period of time but are okay for short walks, well for me anyway! The strap across the front of the shoe obviously matches the main style of the shoe, and is fastened with a popper. However, you can't adjust this in any way, and it is slightly baggy for me because I have very small feet, but it does actually do the job of holding the shoe on my foot when I am walking so I can't really complain too much. A plus of it being slightly baggy is that the strap doesn't cut into the top of my foot when I walk so they don't hurt which is excellent.
The shoe itself is quiet comfortable to wear. The material isn't too hard so does bend and stretch nicely when you walk. I have found that one of the shoes does feel a bit narrow on my foot so gets a little niggly after being worn for a long time, but I try to take them off for a bit and stretch my feet when I can. I think because they are not leather, they aren't really stretching to be comfortable as you might expect with a leather shoe that feels a bit tight, but I guess this is what you get for buying a budget shoe, and for the price I paid, I can't moan too much. As I said, I only wear these out for special occasions so again it isn't a problem that is going to affect me long term really.
I am pleased with these shoes, and considering they only cost me £10, I think I got great value for money. They are a fab pair of shoes which have the adult look I want in the small size which fits me which is just perfect. The stiletto heel adds great height, the strap on the front adds some security for the wearer that they aren't going to fly off or slip too much, and they can definitely be dressed up for a night out or worn with a smart dress for a posh work do. They are a versatile looking pair of court shoes, and I'd definitely recommend them. They are also available in a mushroom colour too if you prefer that over plain black!
Available from www.petitfeet.co.uk for the bargain price of £10 in sizes 1, 2 and 3.
Thank you for reading.
I was looking for a new pair of black shoes for work, when I came accross these.
I was wandering around the local shopping centre, and all I could really find were pointy toed stilletos which I really dont like, as they hurt my toes.
So in a last stop before going home for the day I headed in to Priceless Shoes, and these caught my eye.
The Priceless Round Tor Heel Bar court shoe in my opinion, is a mary-jane style shoe. Suitible to wear for work or play, and dress up or down, depending on the occasion.
They are made from faux leather,with rubber sole and have an approximatly 3 and a half inch not far of stilletto style heel. Many may feel these to be very high, but they are particularly easy to balance in, and I have often ran for the bus in them.
As you can see they are black in colour, with a tan insole, and have a inch thich bar, ankle strap, with a large black loop and eye style rounded pearlescent button.
They are also extremly comfortable, as there is quite a walk between the bus stop and the office, and I spend alot of time running around picking up files etc, and never feel any discomfort from them.
If you have read any of my other shoe reviews, you will know, that shoe's that are uncomfortable, are a no, no for me, and they dont get good reviews. So the praise of this particular pair is well deserved.
For a modest £12.99, they are a great investment. I have had my own pair for three months now, and there is still no sign of wear and tear, and I wear them 5 days a week and I haven't had to have them re-heeled yet either. So clearly hard-wearing.
In my local brach they were available in sizes 3-8, which I think is the standard UK womans shoe sizes.
In conclusion I would definitely recommend to a friend.
