Shoe Review: Carvela ‘Australia’ pink patent peep toes

Carvela Australia

SHOES: Carvela ‘Australia’ pink patent peep toes
PRICE:  £140.50

For this month’s Sarenza Brand Ambassador pick, I chose these pale pink peep toes by one of my favourite brands, Carvela. This choice was a bit of a no-brainer for me: I’d seen these shoes in the Kurt Geiger store in Edinburgh earlier this month, and had instantly fallen in love with them, partly because of the gorgeous, curvy shape, but also because the pale pink upper is the perfect “nude” for my skin tone.

Now, I already have more than my fair share of “nude” shoes, obviously. The pair I wear most often, though, are almost at the end of their life, and will probably have to be retired at some point this year, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have these ones in reserve. And honestly, I don’t think you can ever really have too many pairs of this style of shoe: I’m definitely not worried about how I’ll “save” them in the Shoe Challenge, let’s put it that way!

These shoes are far prettier in real life than they are in these photos. Even more importantly, though, they’re probably one of the most comfortable pair of heels I own: I find that patent uppers can be a little stiff and prone to rubbing when they’re new, but not these ones: they’re super-soft, and really a pleasure to wear. I went for my usual size 4/37, and the fit is perfect, as it always is with Carvela: this is one brand I never have to worry about sizing with, and these were no exception.

These are £140.50 at Sarenza, and also available in a beautiful bright blue, which I also have my eye on. Click here to buy a pair.


  • They look lovely. But at this price range, I don’t get the use of man made material intead of real leather. Maybe it’s a good thing though, otherwise I would have a lot more expensive shoes 🙂

  • Love love love love love! Was actually drooling over them this very day in House of Fraser! I’m also very keen on the blue, it’s such a pretty colour and I love the snakeskin effect.

  • I have to agree with Ophelia, what’s with not using real leather? Although! If they are really soft I won’t complain… well I guess I already did, but I will stop complaining now. My dream shoes are nude patent, and I also having legs of the whitest white need pale pale pink (or possibly actual white) shoes to call them nude, so these are totally perfect.

  • Love them. Interested to know why they’re called Australia. Or maybe KG has just run out of inspiration for names. 🙂
