Studded Platform Ankle Boots- Say No More!

Hi ladies,

FINALLY I have them! It took me two failed purchasing attempts but the third one was the lucky one!

These boots are all over the place. They come in lots of colours, textures and materials.
At the beginning as with so many other trends I didn't like them. I thought they were huge, clown looking and a bit OTT.

But after few tries at in the shops and seeing how clever fashion bloggers combine them with casual and glam looks I started to like them!


The original ones will set you back something around £120! OUCH. There is no way I would pay that money. So after a bit of research I decided to embark on the Ebay journey.

On my first attempt I went classic black suede.
They were cheaper than these (only by a tiny bit like £5) but the seller realised she didn't have any more size 5. Then I decided to go for the studded ones with another seller. They were not as nice as these ones and thank god the retailer sent me a message saying that some studs came off and that she couldn't replace them and bla bla bla. Fail! So after two refunds I said to my self- this last chance to get them or they are not meant to be!
Thank god everything went fine :)
I got them and I love them.


It's a super soft and I would say expensive looking suede and the studs are really pretty, delicate and so well done. There no sign of cheap shoe maker. They look lush!


In my opinion the studs are very good. They have this pyramid kind of shape. They look medieval in a way. Love them. The only thing is that you need to be careful not to rub the shoes against each other. Not that I would do this consciously but I guess with these shoes you do notice a bit more of you have clumsy feet :)


At the front you have the laces but the zip on the side makes the putting on and off a pleasure and you can say the laces are for decorative purposes only.
I love the square finish on the front.


Now, I haven't used these. It's bloody raining every day in London at the moment and there is no way I'm taking these for a ride in this weather.

I have been wearing them at home (as you do when you are over exited) on the carpet and on normal floor and they seem very comfy!
The have huge platforms so that helps with the balance and the pain free experience.



Anyhoo- I love them. I will use them with my leggings (they are like my second skin), with maxi dresses, with jeans, with skirts, with shorts, with dresses...there's nothing I couldn't really use in conjunction with these boots. 

I'm in love ;)

They were super fast! The shoes came very nicely packed in a big box with lots of paper inside and there wasn't a single scratch on the shoes.
