I got outbid on the Zara asymmetric pumps last week. I say “outbid” – I didn’t even get the chance to bid, because after watching them all week, the seller abruptly withdrew them from auction, and added a Buy It Now price for some mystery buyer. Don’t you just HATE it when that happens? Mind you, the final sale price was £130, which was way more than I was willing to pay, so I guess it didn’t really matter! I’ll still keep my eBay alert going, but I’m slowly losing hope of ever finding those shoes at a semi-reasonable price, so the search for similar ones continues, and this week it leads me back to my old friend, Buffalo, and these red asymmetric pumps.
First up, I should say that I found these on a German site, so they’ll only be available to some of my European readers at the moment. As you’ve probably seen from the various other styles I’ve shown from this brand, though, Buffalo is stocked by various other UK websites (my sponsors at Spartoo and Sarenza both carry Buffalo shoes, for instance). I really like the asymmetric shape, although I can’t help wishing these were available in a matte upper rather than a patent one, because I feel the patent is cheapening the overall effect slightly here, although that may just be the effect of the flash in the photo, who knows.
These are also available in a neon green and a similarly bright pink, both of which are far too bright for me: if you’re into neon, though, you can click here to see them.
