When Rainbow Club emailed to offer me a pair of custom coloured shoes, I didn’t even need to think twice about what colour I would choose. You probably guessed from my overuse of purple over on Bonjour, Blogger! that it’s my favourite colour which has been the case for as long as I can remember. It took longer to choose which shoes I was going to wear, but I went for the Stevie satin pumps because I don’t wear heels very much outside of work.
I intended to wear these for a friends wedding recently and take lots of photos in the beautiful countryside but when I was about a mile away from the hotel, I realised I had left them behind in Bristol! Super annoying. Still, a week later, I had a chance to really test the shoes out when I wore them to take part in the Bath in Fashion bloggers preview day. I knew there would be lots of walking so this would be a good chance to see how the shoes would hold up all day.
These photos were taken at the end of the day, and the shoes were still perfectly comfortable, despite the amount of walking we had done! The shoes are slightly padded on the inside (although this didn’t affect the actual sizing of the shoe – no need to size up or down on this) which meant they were still super comfy after 8 hours of wear. I even had a few people complimenting my shoes when we were in a shop – very unexpected!
Rainbow Club were also very kind enough to send over a pair of shoe clips which can help you change up the look of the shoes. I chose the Selena shoe clips because, well, go big and sparkly, or go home. The shoe clips are literally just that – like a little hair clip on the back of the sparkles that allow you to pop the shoe clip anywhere on the shoe that suits you – I like them on the back of the shoe!
One of the things I noticed while browsing on the site to get the links for this post was that after the wedding, you can send the shoes back to Rainbow Club and have them dyed into a more everyday sort of colour – like getting two pairs of shoes for the price of one!
I’d totally recommend these shoes if you’re looking for a specific colour shoe for an outfit – not just for weddings!
What a cool idea! I love the colour of these and it’s great that you can get them redyed too!
