Can't decide if the glitter will be too much?

I like them! Will depend v much on glitter quality when you wee/touch them....

elQuintoConyo Fri 25-Sep-15 18:02:53

I like them

Um, orangina why would you be weeing on them? grin

Ridiculous price though!

ipadmad Fri 25-Sep-15 18:05:16

I have a code which brings them into (almost) reasonable limits

bigbuttons Fri 25-Sep-15 18:05:45

bloody hell. I'd expect them to be encrusted real jewels for that priceshock

ipadmad Fri 25-Sep-15 18:08:31

In my defence, these are a ridiculous price smile

I'm not even going to bother clicking the prada link!

The first shoes you linked to are lovely.

Nay. Ridiculously expensive and I don't like the shape or the bling. Sorry.

They are a bit three years ago. I think these have been done to death by jimmy choo for the last few years, nah.

They might have been tolerable with laces (gold) but that skater style is hideous.

hrhlisa Fri 25-Sep-15 18:50:03

I think yay! I love them. Anything I've had from mint velvet has been good quality too.

Scarletforya Fri 25-Sep-15 18:51:02

Nay. They have similar Primark, plus I think they look a bit masculine on the foot. (app apart from the glitter)

Yay but they're over priced. MV seem to have really hiked up their prices lately. They're in danger of pricing themselves out of the marked because the quality hasn't risen with the price.

Lunastarfish Fri 25-Sep-15 18:54:14

Lovely but the price is a piss take

burnishedsilver Fri 25-Sep-15 19:12:04

Market, not marked.

ilovetosleep Fri 25-Sep-15 19:17:54

I really love them, the price puts me off though (could you share the code?!) Boden have some v similar but sold out in my size sad

lurkingabit Fri 25-Sep-15 19:33:19

Not for me, sorry. Can't imagine you'd get your money's worth out of them.

ipadmad Fri 25-Sep-15 19:53:02

I found the code on Mumsnet - it is NEWYORK15

ipadmad Fri 25-Sep-15 19:54:02

Thanks for the opinions - I'm not going to buy them - agree that probably won't get the use out of them

whatdoIget Fri 25-Sep-15 19:56:08

I've seen similar in asos and new look, may not be your bag to wear cheaper stuff though

ipadmad Fri 25-Sep-15 19:59:55

Thanks - will check those out whatdoIget - happy to go cheap and cheerful

LordPeterWimsey Fri 25-Sep-15 20:07:24

Nay. DD has some like that for under a fiver from Primark. Can't imagine paying that money for them.

Haha, sorry I posted and then ran off for supper and movie with the kids... I meant SEE, not WEE.......
