Q: Where can I find a decently priced pair of red mary-jane type shoes? I live in Australia but am not adverse to online shopping. Also, I am not a fan of the platform or the super-high stiletto- probably why I am having such trouble finding these shoes!
I have to confess, I had a lot of problems with this myself, because I know next to nothing about Australian-based stores and websites, which is why I’m hoping some of my Aussie readers will come to my rescue here!
At the moment, the trend does tend to be for high platforms and heels, so Mary Janes without those are a little thin on the ground, too. I did manage to find these Carvela Mary Janes at ASOS.com, which ships to Australia: they’re down to £40, and most sizes still seem to be available. The heel is about 3.3″, which isn’t overly high, although obviously that’s a matter of opinion!
Another option I thought of was to try some of the US-based departments stores: I know both Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom ship internationally, although Neiman’s doesn’t tend to be exactly “reasonably priced” and Nordstrom isn’t carrying any red Mary Janes that fit the bill at the moment (or not that I found, anyway): it could be worth keeping an eye on the site, though.
Anyone else got any suggestions? Spotted any red Mary Janes, either in Australia, or available to ship there? Do tell…
