Topshop Gwenda, £58
Yes, it’s THOSE Topshop ‘Gwenda’ pumps: the ones I fell in love with when they were first released a few months ago, but which instantly sold out in the green colour I love, and started popping up on eBay for around £100 per pair. Don’t you just HATE it when that happens?
Topshop have now released these shoes in a variety of other colours (I also really love the lilac version), but I had my heart set on the green version, so when I looked at the Topshop website last week and noticed that they’d briefly come back in stock in a couple of sizes, I didn’t waste any time. I’m assuming they’d perhaps had a couple of pairs returned, because they disappeared equally quickly, but it’s always worth checking back from time to time if there’s a particular pair of shoes you’re really interested in.
As I mentioned when I first wrote about these shoes, I love these, not just for the colour, but for the wonderful, low vamp and low-cut sides. This isn’t a shape for everyone: these DO give a hint of toe cleavage, which I know a lot of people aren’t keen on, but I think it’s a great way to add interest to a classic court, and these have the kind of shape I usually associate with a more expensive brand.
As some of you know, I’m a big fan of Topshop’s shoes, which I generally find to be good quality, and true-to-size: in fact, in terms of sizing, I’d say they’re one of the more reliable brands on the high street: there are never any surprises for me when I order shoes from Topshop – I can reliably go for my usual size and know it will fit. And with that said, now I just need to track down a red pair…[Disclosure: these shoes were purchased using a gift code from MyVoucherCodes.co.uk. All opinions are my own. ]
Simple but classic! Now what was that about a lilac version?
That’s a great color but difficult to pair with outfits I suppose. Gotta blend it right I guess.
Are these shoes comfy?
They’re not as comfortable as slippers, I guess, but I haven’t had any issues with them.
Love. I’ve only just caught the ‘Topshop Glam’ train, and now I feel a new obsessive eBay trawl coming on…!
Hello! Can you please, please tell me the difference between Gwenda and Gwenda 2, and any other types of Gwenda!? The box of my black suede ones said gwenda2? Are they all gwenda2? Xxxx
