Irregular Choice - Nick Of Time

(23 Posts)
riskyinred Sun 26-Feb-17 15:27:43

Looking for help. I'm desperate for a pair of the black glitter (or even the red/black ombre glitter) IC Nick Of Time in a size 42/8. I've spent pretty much all day trying to track a pair down in my size but no luck.

So two things: can anybody find any in stock that I cannot?
And if not, can somebody recommend another brand or something similar? Need them for this coming Friday night. I want outrageous bows and glitter to liven up my very boring red dress. I'm not that bothered by cost.

Ooh these are the only ir choice shoes I've ever liked! You might find similar in red or dead I will search

Have you tried Schuh's instant messenger facility on their website? They have very helpful actual humans who will do a search of all the physical stores nationally for any shoes out of stock online. Can usually get them to you within 48 hours too. They've come to our rescue many times!

Thanks Coffee, will try that.

I have these in a uk size 8. I love all Ruby Shoo styles. Also have some gorgeous red ones. They're too high for me. Worn once. Would be happy to sell them on if any good?

busyboysmum Sun 26-Feb-17 16:13:29

These are the red.

I was coming on to say Schuh as well smile

I used to love Irregular Choice & still have a few pairs, but they have changed and suddenly got very ugly & clunky. Haven't been tempted by a pair for about 3 years now (not yours OP, yours are OK smile )

Isn't a 42 a 9? Are you somewhere in between 8 and 9?

MiddleClassProblem Sun 26-Feb-17 16:21:45

eBay also has them new with a polka for bit in an 8 for £79

riskyinred Sun 26-Feb-17 16:40:15

Size 42 is an eight. I have trawled Ebay. Can somebody link me to the size eights?

There is a FB page - irregular choice buy, sell and worship. They have In Search Of albums where you can post the style you're after and if someone has them for sale they can reply. Also a lot of retailers come on once a month on a Payday thread where they post all their sale shoes.

You can waste hours smile

Here are the polka dots but they have other colours if you just pop it in the search

There's an IC shop in Camden selling only their shoes. Might be worth ringing? I agree Ruby Shoo are similar but take heed, I ordered a 7 off Amazon and they were tiny and very overpriced. I'm normally 6.5/7. As you're on a tight deadline you want to be sure the size is right.

Join the Facebook group. Irregular choice buy sell and workship. These ladies know everything. Plus the independent stockists are in there too so I reckon you will find them no bother

iamapixiebutnotaniceone Sun 26-Feb-17 20:37:57

Definitely join the Facebook page! Use the ISO files x or IC Curtain Calls are similar flowers

imjessie Sun 26-Feb-17 20:40:26

I'm sure I saw shoes like this is schuh today in Portsmouth .

riskyinred Sun 26-Feb-17 20:58:32

Thanks everybody. I've joined that group. Also bought these as an alternative so I've definitely got something for Friday but will continue to search. Huge, huge thanks!

MiddleClassProblem Sun 26-Feb-17 21:00:27

Yay! Hope you have a great night with them x

Try giving Skape a call. They are a distributor so they might be able to track some down.
