Last week, shoe website Sarenza contacted me to ask if I’d like to review a pair of their shoes, as part of their brand ambassador programme. Well, I thought about it for all of 0.58654 seconds before agreeing, but as soon as I started to browse the website, I realised I had a tough choice ahead of me, because they currently have over 9,800 pairs of women’s shoes on the site. Which is a LOT, even for me.
Luckily this is exactly the kind of challenge I love, but rather than make the decision myself, I’ve decided to place it in the hands of you, my readers and let you choose my shoes. I’ve selected four pairs from the Sarenza website which are within the budget and currently available in my size: you just have to tell me which pair you want me to review – simple, no?
I’ve put a poll at the end of the post, which I’ll check again at around this time tomorrow (I don’t want to leave it too long in case the shoes sell out in my size!): whichever pair has the most votes will be admitted into my Shoe Challenge, and I’ll style an outfit around them soon. Here are the contenders:
1. The Wildcard: Carvela ‘Assess’
Some of you may remember me showing you these shoes earlier this year. I loved them then, and still love them now, but I must confess, I have absolutely no idea what I’d wear with them!
2. The Classic-With-a-Twist: STUDIO TMLS ’Louanne’
A simple shape and a bright pop of colour: perfect for Spring!
3. The Brand I Don’t Normally Buy: Iron Fist ‘Sugar Hiccup’ platforms
I think I’m alone amongst shoe lovers in that I’ve never really been a huge fan of Iron Fist. I do, however, rather like these shoes, which combine a neutral upper with sequined skulls.
4. The Heartbreaker: Ted Baker ‘Keanah’
Yes, I know: I already have these shoes in pink, but… I love them. And I don’t have them in THIS colour, which is why, left to my own devices, these are the ones I’d choose.
I’m NOT being left to my own devices, here, though: I’m placing the decision solely in your hands, so place your vote in the poll below (and feel free to drop me a comment explaining your choice, if you like) and whichever shoe has the most votes this time tomorrow will be the next pair of shoes to enter the Challenge, courtesy of my Fairy Shoemothers at Sarenza.
Use your power wisely, o’readers!
