Just that really.

Have tracked down a pair in sale at £45, but now not sure if I want them. Are they too bling/shiny?

I like them, they look stylish and comfy.

Sorry, but i hate ugly shoes and i personally find these types of sandals clumpy and ugly, even though they are trendy

CherryBonBon Sun 19-Jul-15 18:37:44

Probably comfy but eye wateringly ugly.

Don't mind the silver at all, but I also think the shape is really ugly

MelanieCheeks Sun 19-Jul-15 18:53:03

I think they look pretty versatile, would go with many outfits. What had you in mind?

Hideous. Sorry!

I love them - they are really fashion-forward. 'Ugly' (actually I don't think they're really ugly but that's me) sandals are where it's at this season, totally go for them.

Agree ugly sandals are the thing atm. I avoid ugliness generally, but if you're comfortable with that they're just the thing!

ShotgunNotDoingThePans Sun 19-Jul-15 19:20:17

Sorry for repetition of 'the thing!'

Wow really divided opinions here.!

I like the 'clumpy' looking sandals that are around at the moment in general though can see how they seem ugly if your tastes are for daintier shoes. It was only the brightness of the silver that worried me. Think I'll definitely go and try them on tomorrow to see if they're as comfy as they look.

'Comfy'. The kiss of death. Don't buy them!

Oooh, I really like these, but then I'm a sucker for silver shoes. Saw them in the sale but not my size (d'ya know where I could get them in a 4? wink)

NashvilleQueen Mon 20-Jul-15 09:37:40

I'm not keen but what do I know? They were originally £150 <faints>

polyhymnia Mon 20-Jul-15 10:59:03

Agree £150.00 would have been a daft price for them. Sorry, don't know where to get a 4 - I just phoned up one of the central London stores to see if they had my size (41) because they sold out in the branch nearest me.

Metallic shoes go with everything. I like them.

They are obviously marmite shoes - strong views for and against. Off to try them this afternoon.
