I love these. Anyone know who does a good range. Saw a lovely silver glittery pair by french sole but tres expensive.

Office has some gorgeous ones in silver, gold and red (there are two types - these are the softer, wider ones) for 14.99. But I'd get a move on as I think they're selling out of the silver ones fast.

I bought a pair two weeks ago and have barely had them off my feet.

they are shit if you have fat ankles, sorry but they are, you need a balletic pose to carry them off, otherwiwise you look like an upside down milk bottle

I saw a gorgeous gold quilted(Chanel stylee)pair on a gorgeous sylph-like Japanese girl yesterday. Actually it was in Kensington so they probably were Chanel! But agree about needing the skinny ankles.

Primark have a few different pairs for £6 and they are really nice.

French sole are very good - you can order on line or there is a fab shop in Chelsea. Cheaper ones in Accessorise and Oasis.

Thank you. Well I don't have skinny ankles but I was going to wear them with Jeans anyway so not much of ankle showing. I think I will get the French Sole ones even though they are £65 as they are the nicest I've seen and look comfortable.

Accessorize do glittery ones cheaper than French Sole.

bought silver sequin covered pair from kurt geiger. £55. fab

Thank you, but I wanted soft leather as my feet swell when it's hot. Accessorize ones are probably synthetic aren't they?

french sole are lovely. also annello and davide (same sort of price) and yes much better in leather than plastic!

New Look have hundreds

i got a silver leather pair for £20

plummymummy Sat 03-Jun-06 22:52:04

Ah yes, but not silver glitter like french sole. I love them. They are out of stock of the ones I like. I'm going to slope off and sulk now.....slope, slope, slope.....................
