Shoe Review: Spurr Basics, Crystal
If you follow me on Instagram (you should) you'll know I'm obsessed with the Iconic. Their range is just too good!
One of the shoe brands they stock is Spurr and the price point has always appealed to me (i.e. it is low) but I was hesitant to try them given my desire to wear shoes that are good for your feet in order to avoid problems later in life as well as the dreaded "I'm taking these off"/Blisters phase. But as you now know, I caved because I wanted a pair of white heels to replace my worn out Windsor Smith pair (RIP you were a great pair).
I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised! They have more cushioning than it seems, the size is true and the adjustable buckle on the back is fantastic. I was skeptical about the sole because in the pictures it looks like the sort that'll have me ass over turkey, luckily it isn't! It's actually quite soft rubber. Yes, it'll wear and tear easily but I'd rather that than a broken tail bone amiright?
One of the cons is they're not the most perfectly finished shoes, cheaper materials and glued together; you get what you pay for right?
One of the best things they came with is some heel replacements! YES! That's what led to the death of my previous pair and we all know the true horror of walking on the metal spike of a stiletto. Ugh.
So, what do you think? I'll need to buy another pair from Spurr before I'm sold for good but I do adore this pair of pretty babies.
They come in loads more colours and are currently on sale! Get in quick!
