Yikes, I completely forgot to post something on Saturday! I guess it's time to start the week off with a shoe unboxing instead :)
I recently stumbled across a pair of lovely heeled ankle boots on boohoo.com, and 100% impulsively bought them. It was a couple of days before Chinese New Year (my parents have this kind of superstition that buying shoes in the new year period is bad fortune...anyone else?) so I thought why not! I'm going to do a bit of a shoe unboxing in this post, an initial review of the boots and also delve a little into my experience with boohoo.
The exact name of the shoes are the Holly Contrast Sole Cut Work Ankle Boots....a bit of a mouthful, but the link to them can be found here. I recieved a nice 20% off shoes due to a random sale I had no idea about, which was fabulous. Once I had paid for the shoes I recieved a confirmation email, along with a tracking number which allowed me to check where my package was last. The package arrived roughly a week after I ordered my shoes, so I had a pretty good experience with my goods coming in good time, especially since shipping is free.
Some photos of what the box looked like - it came wrapped in the boohoo label with the Union Jack on it. Order details, a cute little trends magazine and a promo sign with '#ownit' written on the back (great for instagram!)
Photos of the actual shoe - I didn't find any scuff marks, and the shoe seems decently well put together. The shoe laces feel kind of papery but I plan on swapping them out for ludacris colours later on to add some more pizazz *spirit fingers*
The heel is made out of a rubbery material, and the actual shoe itself a faux leather. They look like they can hold up on a slightly drizzly day, but since it has cutouts I wouldn't wear them on a super rainy day. I got really excited at this point so decided to finally try them on for size:
The shoes feel decently comfortable, and fit well, although I haven't had an oppurtunity to wear them out properly yet. I did try them once with a pair of semi-thick socks and found them a little snug. The heel isn't too demanding on the feet so I think I will be able to get a fair bit of wear out of them.
Overall, I'm happy with my purchase! I had read a lot of extremely mixed reviews about Boohoo and was pleased mine turned out well.
Until next time,
