I've not seen these POUT heels in store before - possibly because I seem to live in the town which houses the smallest Topshop store in the world, and it's sweets section is bigger than the shoe section and we never seem to get any of the Boutique collection in.
When I spotted them on eBay recently, I hoped they'd be heading my way soon, and I was lucky enough to win the auction. I love the festive feel of the velvet. The platform is nice and sturdy as is the heel and they're nice and comfortable to walk in. I usually shy away from peep toes but I figured that they are covered mostly by the pom poms, which are made from a fairly heavy yarn. I'm pretty pleased with them and have worn them this week to "smarten up" an oversized Xmas jumper.
