PRODUCT REVIEW: Monochrome Heels from Primark

I've never really been a big fan of Primark shoes before, but when I spotted these in their store a few weeks ago and also on the Look website I knew I had to get them. Come on, yes I'm a shoppaholic but they're a bargain at a mere £14! I was a bit sceptical about whether the shoes would be comfortable as they're so cheap but was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and sleek the shoes were... Primark really done well with these shoes.

I'm a big fan of monochrome and prior to buying these shoes didn't own a single pair of monochrome shoes. I had been looking for a nice elegant pair for a while but was unsuccessful in my search, so when I saw these shoes I was over the moon. 

The heel is very low, much lower than my usual 5 inch platforms. But being low allows for the shoe to be worn both casually for day to day wear, formally if you'd like to wear them to the office and dressed up because they'd definitely complement a LBD. The fact that the heel is low also increases the comfort of the shoe, allowing them to be worn for long periods of time. 

Usually I have a problem with sizing as I'm a UK 4.5 and only a handful of stores in the UK actually offer shoes in this size. So I always end up buying shoes that are a little too big and stuff them with insoles to make the fit a little more snug and comfortable. These shoes being pointed come up a little big, so I was happy when the size 4 fit me perfectly. I'd advised going for your usual shoe size, but if you're a half size go for the size down.

The ankle strap has 5 holes, so would fit both ladies with slender ankles and thicker ankles. The front of the shoes is not at all narrow, however I would suggest ladies with wider feet try on for sizing before purchasing. 

As you may know from previous posts and specifically product reviews I love gold, gold accessories gold jewellery and gold buckles on shoes. If a shoes has to have a buckle it must be gold, yes I know this is dependant on the colour of the shoe but generally shoes of all colours look better (IMO) with a gold buckle, not only better but more expensive. So I was happy when I saw that these shoes had a gold buckle and the shape of it was unusual which gave the otherwise elegant shoe a quirky bit of detail.

I really can't wait to wear these shoes out and think they'd look great with stone wash boyfriend jeans, a white blazer and vest and a smart black structured bag. Look out for a outfit post for these shoes coming soon.
