I'm desperate to find a pair of tan 'Fly London' sandals, 'Tram'
Style in size 6(39). It's the only thing I've asked DH for and nothing else as
A birthday present and my only other summer footwear is a battered pear of flipflops. I was SO looking forward to these so I was a bit confusedwhen I opened my candle and hand cream.

I've looked everywhere on the net and these all seem to be sold out in this size and colour.

I'm gutted! I know it's no biggie in the grand scheme of things but I would have bought them myself if I'd realised that DH paid me and my one wish absolutely no attention. angry

I looked on Schuh and it shows them in stock in tan? Not doubting you, just thought I'd see which ones they were as I love their quirkiness as a brand.

Snow off to look right now
<legs it>

Amazon seems to have a few different colours in a 6. I think these are the ones my friend has, and loves, so hope you get them!

Nooooo! The colour you're seeing is camel I think - tan is lighter. Thanks though - grateful for you at least trying cake

HexBramble Sun 31-Jul-16 22:58:53

Amazon doesn't have tan in 6. Thanks though...

I've glared at DH so much today that he has now put a bounty on finding these. He's promised to send whoever can find me those shoes, an envelop of goodies.

Help!

Are you sure it's not camel you want if you want the light ones?

HexBramble Sun 31-Jul-16 23:33:12

Agent, the tan ones are an earthier and lighter shade again (think light tan). Thanks though.
I'm still so annoyed.

Even my candle is making me itch a bit blush

Oh didn't see 2nd pic. Pic to left is camel and the pic on right is tan.

AgentProvocateur Sun 31-Jul-16 23:35:12

But look at the description - they have camel on photo on right, and tan on photo on left.

HexBramble Sun 31-Jul-16 23:41:22

Yes, I can see
That what you are saying is correct, but I can't see them
Anywhere on the site from end - purple
One's and camel
One's are only ones I can see....confused

Sorry they're the camel not tan!

Nearlyadoctor Mon 01-Aug-16 07:22:44

Just done some research and I think you will find 'tan' is an old colour from two years ago. Camel tan is this seasons 'tan' so may be the best you can get unless someone on eBay is selling any.

I think that your search problem is due to sites mis-naming the colours and photos being deceptively darker or lighter. Check the fly london website - they have the lighter brown shade / camel / what I would call tan in stock in 39. (As do a few other sites if it is a colour naming issue).

I also want these now! Just need to decide on colour...

AFAIK tan hasn't been available at all this season, only camel as I've been looking since last September! I do like camel though and lighter than in the photos

I'm a slow typer so x-posted with nearlyadoctor. grin The appearance of the camel colour varies massively in photos I've seen online!
