For the past four summers I've taken pride in wearing a pair of tan suede tassle sandals. They were quite perfect for my feet with a wide strap, none of the inbetween toe bit nonsense, and an adjustable ankle strap for my inconveniently small ankles. However when I wore them out in pride in Barcelona a couple of weeks ago, they pretty much fell apart. *sob*
I'm just going to go ahead and be the exception to the female stereotype and say I hate shoe shopping. My feet are that awkward size where one is slightly bigger than the other, and abnormally wide by my toes, and abnormally thin by my heel. Therefore, shoe shopping proves as successful as XFactor finalists. Sometimes I can find a perfect, lasting pair, whilst the majority of the time they'll be ideal for about thirty seconds before I loose feeling in my toes or my heels slip out.
A few days ago I strode into Topshop head held high, determined to reunite my tootsies with a durable yet pretty pair of sandals. Much to my confusion, I found the above pair, and they fitted. With straps here there and everywhere, they hold in my feet and prevent my heels from slipping out with a secure ankle strap. To add the cherry on the cake, they mostly cover my toes, which are possibly my least favourite things. What more could I want?
