I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure - should I keep my LK Bennett shoes?

Loved them since I saw them on KM grin

Fab looking
Love the colour
Don't gape

They are v expensive!
Will I get the wear?

Sorry having a wobble!
Does anyone else have these and have you got lots of wear out of them?

They're nude wedges - you will get loads of wear out of them, I would definitely keep them!

FellatioNelson Sun 26-Jun-11 08:44:09

Wedges are a no-brainer. Elegance, height, comfort and stability in one. Keep.

pink4ever Sun 26-Jun-11 09:20:36

They are lovely and you will get years of wear out of them. A def keeper. I hate being poor and not being able to afford nice shoessad

MrsCog Sun 26-Jun-11 09:27:31

Definitely keep, as long as you're 100% sure they fit and are comfortable (this is where my wobbles normally originate). They're a classic you'll still be wearing in years to come.

165 POUNDS for a pair of bog standard looking shoes!
shock shock shock
not in my world!

FrancesFarmer Sun 26-Jun-11 09:43:27

If comfortable, yes, keep.

Are you sure they look as nice as you think.
They look quite cheap looking for the price.

THey have a primark look about them.

FellatioNelson Sun 26-Jun-11 09:47:44

I think tye would be better in matt leather rather than patent, but I still like them.

I like them very much but I don't think I would wear them. Don't have too many photocalls with my husband the prince grin
I have that colour patent shoe but in a normal court for work, which I love, but there feels like a bit of a clash between the raffia wedge and the top of the shoe which would make me struggle to identify the right occasion for them. But if you can do that, they are lovely.

harpfairy Sun 26-Jun-11 21:34:32

BTW I've seen them and they are nothing like primark!

CHOOGIRL Sun 26-Jun-11 21:43:23

I have just taken delivery of the taupe and am awaiting the black. I think it is a very versatile shoe. Have tried with jeans, skirts and dresses.

LRDTheFeministNutcase Sun 26-Jun-11 22:10:59

Sorry, I think they are awful! I've seen them in the shop and imo that colour in patent just looks cheap - are you sure they'll still give you a thrill when you've actually worn them once or twice?

glassescase Sun 26-Jun-11 22:16:37

Don't like, but if you do and they are comfortable then go for it.

applecrumbleandcream Sun 26-Jun-11 22:25:46

I agree, I just don't get raffia with the patent leather combo - looks a bit strange to me as though the patent leather is formal for work and the raffia too casual. For that amount I think there is better out there.

upahill Sun 26-Jun-11 22:47:38

I normally like LK Bennett shoes (and dressess) but I stand by my first thought. They don't look like a classy pair of shoes and you can get nicer looking casual shoe for your money than them.

Nude patent very rarely (IMO ) looks any thing other than cheap and nasty.

BTW what/ who is KM Kate Middleton I presume?

bethelbeth Sun 26-Jun-11 23:35:37

I'm not feeling the raffia/patent nude combo. It should either be a nude patent wedge or a raffia wedge. Not both. It's overly fussy and has missed the mark so to speak.

PinotsKittens Mon 27-Jun-11 10:29:34

Well now, I worship at the altar of LK Bennett (shoes and bags, I love thee equally)...and the style I love...but not the patent. Too shiny. In a matt nude leather - heaven.
