“ Brand: F&F / Type: Pumps „
* Prices may differ from that shown
As usual I went for a browse in my local Tesco Extra when they had a special offer on clothes at the end of August. This time I was tempted by the F&F T-Bar Studded Pumps. The August offer was to double up the reward value of Clubcard Vouchers, if spent in certain departments, which included fashions.
== What I Love About Them ==
While I like the look of pump style footwear, I usually don't buy them, because footwear without any adjustment available doesn't suit people like me who have one foot bigger than the other. This is not unusual, so if your feet are the same size, you are lucky.
The T-Bar and buckle added to these pumps makes them perfect for getting both feet comfortable in the same sized shoes.
The faux leather uppers look realistic, while feeling soft and supple. As the uppers are lined with a mock suede textile, my feet feel cosy and comfortable when wearing them.
The T-Bar doesn't directly join the inside of the shoe, but is securely attached between the upper and the lining, so that there is no obvious join to rub against the top of my feet.
The comfort theme continues with a light cushioning to the inside sole.
== Very Minor Criticism ==
The ¼ inch sole that continues to the whole length of the pump has an extra ¼ inch added at the heel. Struggling to find any fault at all with the design of this shoe, perhaps the bottom could have been a little thicker, but this height seems to be the most fashionable, even in more expensive pump style footwear.
Although I would prefer the sole to be ½ inch thick for practical reasons, as fashion seems to dictate only ¼ inch at the moment, I won't drop a star from my rating for the thickness. Afterall, this type of shoe is not the sort of footwear you should buy for heavy duty wear, no matter how much you can afford to pay.
== Price ==
The full price for this stylish and comfortable footwear is £10.
While I consider them great value for money at £10, I got them for a £5 Tesco Clubcard voucher when they had a Double-Up Event. So far I have only known Tesco do this the once.
Both before and after the Double-Up Event at the end of August/ beginning of September, Tesco have had 20% off periods. This applies to all customers, including those who hadn't got Clubcard vouchers to spend.
== Where to Buy ==
These pumps are currently stocked in larger Tesco Stores, or you can buy from clothingatTesco.com.
The website is currently advertising 20% off selected items, including these pumps!
Similar pumps without a T-Bar are also included in the offer.
