With the recent demise of Barratts, I’ve only been left with Evans (online only now!) and Brantanos to find women’s shoes in a UK size 10, so I was ECSTATIC to find another company this week to stop me from wearing men’s trainers!
Shoesissima only launched last year, and they cater for women with UK feet sizes 8-12. Their latest collection for SS14 is called Missima, and has been inspired by the latest catwalk looks.
The London-based company have hand designed each shoe in the new range, which includes sandals, suede courts, block heels, toe-capped flats and ankle boots. They are perhaps not as low in price as I usually like, with prices between £59.99 to £99.99, but this is justified by how well made the shoes are, and the range of widths they do to cater to our individual sizes.
Shoesissima were kind enough to give me a pair of ankle boots called ‘Petal‘ from their new range to try out for this blog, and let me tell you I was more than impressed with what I got!
These boots were inspired by recent fashion shows from the likes of Marc Jacobs, Balmain and Nicholas Kirkwood, particularly the elastic side gussets of the boots, which was a running theme with these designers.
The black ankle boots have a pointy, patent toe and a 70mm heel. I initially thought they may be too high for me to balance my flat feet on, but I have managed to walk quite well with them and haven’t fallen over yet!
I love how a mixture of suede and shiny patent have been used on the boots, as these contrast really well together, and help to make them look quite chic, and well worth their £99.99 price tag.
I’m going to team them up with bootcut black trousers for work and 3/4 length jeans or leggings for the summertime. They will pop out when I wear my vintage black dress if I’m feeling extra brave on a future date too!
Shoesissima have also kindly given me a pair of Dara sandals from their new collection to give away to one of you lucky readers!
