“ Brand: Next / Type: Sandals „
I love my shoes like most women do but I have never gotten on with high heels, I just can't walk in them no matter how much I try. I once wore a pair of stunning shoes out clubbing that had a chunky but very high heel. I managed to get myself down into town with them on and into the first pub. Had a few drinks there and stood up to walk to the next pub and realised that in my inebriated state I could hardly walk in the damn things!!! I literally just could not walk properly and had to get a taxi home, change my shoes and get a taxi back down again!!!! Never again lol. I always envy my sister because she is fine in heels and most of the really stunning going out shoes have a higher heel :-( So when I saw these on the Next website I had to have them.
I absolutely love next for sandals and shoes because they do some really pretty jewelled sandals and I love shoes that have diamantes on them. These are a lovely shiny silver colour and have lovely big clear diamantes on them. They do up with a strap that goes comfortable round the ankle and fastens with a buckle. They have the cutest kitten heel that looks evening wear but is confortable and easy to walk in. Praise the Lord!!!!!!!! They cost £30 which isn't bad at all for shoes these days and come in sizes 3-9.
I've had these a while now and they've lasted beautifully, no gems have fallen off or anything like that and the heel hasn't worn down. They are perfect for going out in the evenings or if you wanna look a bit swish daytime wear with some skinny jeans and a cute top. I love them and have had tons of comments on them which always makes you feel good :-)
I am one of those people who just love to buy shoes, regardless of colour, shape or size! I have so many pairs of shoes in my wardrobe that don't even fit my feet yet I can't bring myself to throw them away.
I was in Next a few months back when I discovered these sandal/heels. As I said, I love shoes; so they went straight in my basket. I took them to the counter and saw the price label, just £30.00 which I thought was a good price for shoes. I happily payed for them and proudly skipped home to put them on. I had bought other things while I was in Next so I tried to colour co-ordinate my outfit so I could match it. My family were all happy with hown they looked and now I cant get them to stop borrowing them.
The actual shoes are silver with a strap and are styled like normal sandals. The thing that I dislike about these shoes it the heel part, now I know that they are heels but I think that these shoes would've been a lot more useful without them. My friend who had also bought these shoes shares my opinion, and I have been trying to find a similar pair somewhere that look like these but without the heels.
Next are very known for their fashionable clothes and stylish footwear and I think that these can only back up that statement 100%
The shoes are made from quality material and they have yet to break (hopefully they never will!). They are not too difficult to walk in and are rather comfy. They are available in sizes 3-9 in all Next stores. I think that they make me look rather sophisticated in whatever I wear; they just look great. Next stores are loacated all around the UK and US so if you don't know where your closest one is, look on the website and they will be able to direct you there more than eagerly. I highly recommend these shoes as I feel that, due to their colour, they are the perfect shoes for Summer, maybe not so much for the beach though!
After recent minor day surgery on my toe and a party to go to I needed a new pair of shoes that looked nice but without the killer heels that I love. I found the very thing in Next. The Silver Gem T Bar Kitten Heel Shoes were exactly what I had in mind and at £30.00 they weren't going to break the bank. Now although these are described as shoes they are actually sandals!
The sandals are silver, strappy and have clear gems (fake of course!) on the straps. The sandals have 2 very thin gem encrusted straps across the toes, these I have to say, at first were not the most comfortable but as the shoes are made from a synthetic material I found they did "give" a little when I wore them. Not enough to make them loose but just enough to stop any painful rubbing or blisters. The sandals are a T bar design and the strap that comes up the front of the foot is also covered in clear gems. These are much larger than the ones on the straps and are different shapes, square, oval and round.
The T bar is attached to a strap, again very thin and covered in small gems, , this goes around the ankle and fastens with a small silver buckle at the side. There is a small elasticated section should you need to pull the strap that little bit tighter. Personally I have thin ankles and really could do with this to make the strap fit a bit better but when I do this it pulls the T bar off centre and the gems on the ankle strap tend to twist over so I have to have the strap slightly looser than I would like. This isn't too much of a problem though and the sandals still feel secure and my feet don't slip about in them.
The base of the sandal is slightly padded which is nice and bears the Next logo. The kitten heel is just 2.5 inches high (6cm's) so would suit those who prefer a lower heel. I bought these sandals in a size 6, 39euro, and they are true to size, they were available in half sizes too. They are also reasonably wide, my Mum tried them on and she said they were comfortable for her and she has quite wide feet so these may also be suitable for those ladies who always have to look for wider fitting shoes.
I wore these to the party I bought them for and although my toe prevented me from too much dancing the sandals were comfortable to walk and stand in. There was no rubbing or chafing at all. The sandals brighten up any out fit and certainly bring a bit of glamour to your feet. The heel whilst being on the lowish side is high enough to be stylish and add a bit of length to your legs. The kitten heel is elegant and in my opinion has a vintage feel to it
I would suggest these sandals are more for evenings and going out rather than a trip to the shops particularly as they are silver. The branch I bought mine from only had them in silver so I'm assuming this is the only colour choice.
I would recommend these strappy little sandals, they have a lot going for them. They add a bit of sparkle and glamour to anything you wear, the heel is suitable for most and looks elegant, they are suitable for a slightly wider foot, they were a good price and most importantly they are comfortable and easy to wear.
