I have ordered them, because:

a. I think they are fab
b. They were £29 reduced from £110
c. err..can't think of any other reason.

I shall most probably try them on, love them but realise I can't walk in them and send them back again.

Ooh I looooooove them smile And Carvela/Kirt Geiger in general. They'll not be too bad to walk in because of the platform and the thick heel. I have some almost exactly the same, but New Look so not as nice, and they're my go-to gig shoe as they're so easy to walk in so less chance of falling over on stage grin

Also they're £77 now!!!! Are you an unusual size that they wanted to shift?

BendydickCuminsnatch Fri 29-Jan-16 18:23:46

NC fail! Darn it.

They're £77 now, you got a bargain!

LentilStew Fri 29-Jan-16 18:26:26

Blimey! If you love them, buy them!

I may have worn them 20+yrs ago but not now. So if you're young they'll look great. I used to find Carvella/KG shoes really stiff to walk in though.

DavetheCat2001 Fri 29-Jan-16 18:41:15

I'm not young at all..I'm nearly 43! grin

I actually got them for £29 from Selfridges!

They still have them if you are interested!

BendydickCuminsnatch Fri 29-Jan-16 18:52:43

OMG I might get them. I rarely have any occasion to wear heels these days though...

DavetheCat2001 Fri 29-Jan-16 19:12:05

Me neither Bendy!!!

DO IT!!!

(you can always send them back if they are really uncomfortable)

GiddyGiddyGoat Fri 29-Jan-16 19:15:52

Bloody hell they are fugly! <<old gimmer>>

GingerNutRiskIt Fri 29-Jan-16 19:22:51

They're gorgeous! Doubt I could walk in them though!

Greengardenpixie Fri 29-Jan-16 22:00:11

OMG they are sooooo high. If you can walk in them and love them why not? Personally i think they are ugly.

Oh wow. They're real ankle breakers.

ScarlettDarling Sat 30-Jan-16 08:11:57

I hate them but then I'm 5'11" and if I wore them I'd look like a drag queen.

DavetheCat2001 Mon 01-Feb-16 20:14:51

..and here they are!

I love them..I think they are fabulous and I envisage me posing on a red carpet in them at a glittering film premiere grin

Back in the real world, they are true ankle breakers, and I'd probably end up in A&E, not v glam, so they are going back, but I just had to try them on smile

DavetheCat2001 Mon 01-Feb-16 20:22:15

I also have these, which by comparison are super comfy!

One pair of daft platform shoes is enough methinks wink

MyGastIsFlabbered Mon 01-Feb-16 20:26:08

What size did you order (angry size 5 is out of stock!)

DragonsCanHop Mon 01-Feb-16 20:31:33

They look better on than in the first picture.

DavetheCat2001 Mon 01-Feb-16 20:44:51

I got size 6.

They really are incredibly high as the platform is huge.

SewButtons Mon 01-Feb-16 20:55:10

You should definitely keep them.
I bought these
www.selfridges.com/GB/en/cat/carvela-alfred-block-heeled-lace-up-shoes_854-10004-6175454109/?previewAttribute=Wine for the same reasons that you bought yours.
I am keeping mine on the basis of they look sensible therefore they must be,even if my shins hurt just standing in them.

CakeNinja Mon 01-Feb-16 21:08:26

I generally love KG shoes but thought they looked horrible in the picture. Very clunky and as a pp brought up, likely to be worn by a man in drag!
However, they look really lovely on your feet, not manly at all, and I find KGs really comfortable smile
Enjoy your new shoes wine

DavetheCat2001 Mon 01-Feb-16 21:28:31

Thanks CakeNinja but sadly they are going back.

I'd never wear them as they are just too high to walk in.

I must have missed the drag queen jibe! grin I thought they may look like lap dancer shoes, but actually they are nice and would looked I think with skinny jeans.

How girls walk in shoes that high, let alone dance in them beats me!

CakeNinja Mon 01-Feb-16 21:37:28

Noooo shock
Gutted, I love them! I actually find platforms really comfortable although don't have any as high as this to avoid the teetering that so many girls adopt!
And I tend to get cabs door to door everywhere on nights out so walking is kept to a minimum.
Ah well, at least you have the lovely photos!

DavetheCat2001 Mon 01-Feb-16 21:38:48

In other news, I ordered a pair of these too from 7 for All Mankind

www.7forallmankind.co.uk/en_en/knee-seam-skinny-crackle-leather-black.html

Again, either going to be fabulous or Rod Stewart. I got them for £85 which is still pricey, but I have been after a pair of rock and roll trousers for a while, and liked the look of these.

Oooo dear! I've just bought these confused
