Something ever so slightly different for this week. A break from Irregular Choice!
I'm still doing my #irregularchoicechallenge and have been put off buying most of the shoes I've seen from other brands, simply because it's going to be so long until I have a chance to wear them. I did make this one exception to that decision when Kandee Shoes posted some sample sale images on their Instagram account recently.
I snapped up this pair of Percy Pig heels as I thought the design was really cute, as well as being a little different to anything else I have. I paid £20 for them as they were a sample pair which I was told had been used in a shoot.
Kandee Shoes are a brand which have been on my radar for a while, but I'd never purchased from before. I have heard various things (not all good) but I thought that at this price, they were cheaper than a pair of high street heels. I like the concept that all of the styles are based on sweets - cute.
When they arrived, I was impressed with the quality of things like the box and the shoe bags which they came packed in. I wasn't surprised to see a few signs of wear to the glitter soles and a small nick in the leather of one of the heels, as these are the sorts of things you'd expect after a wear or two if they've been used for a photo shoot.
The heels are nice and high. I was wary after reading Gem's post that they would be tricky to walk in, but I didn't find that at all. I must admit that these are a size larger than I'd usually buy my shoes in these days, partly due to the fact that I've been between sizes for many years and sometimes still err on the side of caution if I am trying a new brand, and partly because that was just the size which was available in the sample sale.
Overall, as the shoes themselves go, I'm happy with them for the price I paid, but looking at some of the finishing and quality of the materials used, I don't think I'd be buying them at full price.
Have you bought any Kandee Shoes before?
