Please can you help me find a more affordable version of these Jimmy Choo flats. I like the pointed toe flats with the wider strap, it doesn't have to be decorated like these ones are. I've done loads of searches but can't find anything even remotely similar!

There's these. Depends on your definition of affordable, but they're definitely cheaper then the Jimmy Choos

And these which I realise are miles and not black, but I'd keep an eye on this website once autumn styles start coming in https://vitagrace.co.uk/collections/shoes/products/irina-pearl-strap-mules-auburn

Are these any good? Only a couple of sizes left, though.

Thanks both, those are all lovely, the last ones aren't in my size sadly. I do really like the first ones although ideally I'm looking for more of a wide strap like the Choos. Will keep looking, any more suggestions please let me know because I'm currently trying to decide if my credit card can take the hit and I already know the answer is NO!!

@pomegranatefizz it's still quite early into the season when AW stuff starts coming into stock. I would suspect you'd see more styles like this come in once Sept & Oct hit.

They are nice enough but do people really spend that much money on SHOES?!
(Sorry that is no help for you OP in finding sensible ones)

Forgot to say that Russel & Bromley and Zara both have something similar but they're square toe, but you said you wanted pointed.

Zara have pointed flats but the strap's got a chain on it

Juancornetto Sun 23-Aug-20 13:24:16

Scratch that, they're square toed

pomegranatefizz Sun 23-Aug-20 17:21:08

@WineGetsMeThroughIt Good point, and I think AW stuff will be even later this year. Russell & Bromley have some beautiful flats! Thanks for the heads up.

@Juancornetto I really like those, have never worn square toe though and worry they'll make my feet look even wider!

@mrbob I guess lots of people do, those that can afford to! I realistically can't!

The strap isn’t as thick as the JCs but they’re nice for £18 I think!

Ooh I’ve seen some like this in Charles and Keith

@cujo ooh those are spot on! I like them too!!

pomegranatefizz Sun 23-Aug-20 21:50:29

@cujo Amazing!! These are perfect and I've never even heard of this brand so wouldn't have found them. I've ordered them, thank you!

Amazing--they make so much more sense than the Jimmy Choo's. What fun! In also tried searching and found nothing for pomegranatefizz, but ended up ordering something for myself that turned up as I was looking. Totally different vibe, but I cannot wait to get them!

@pomegranatefizz glad I saw this and was able to let you know! Luckily I had ordered these last week In the beige (but haven’t actually got them out the box yet)

I had also never heard of the brand but had seen a link to them in some ‘flat shoes for the office that aren’t ballet shoes’ feature. They seem decent enough quality for the other pair I ordered so I’m pretty happy.

pomegranatefizz Mon 24-Aug-20 17:37:56

@cujo Also brilliantly timed as I checked back earlier and they've sold out in my size! Thanks again!

@blisstwins Yay, always happy to help enable new shoe purchases!
