God how I used to love these shoes! I decided yesterday that I am going to fix up a load of my old shoes. I want to sell a lot of them and get rid before my parents need the room they live in! However I loved these shoes so much. They are Irregular Choice and they are screwed.
They are gold, baggy with a small kitten heel and incredibly comfortable. However, they have fallen apart and I am pretty pissed as I barely wore them. I know it's a bit mad to say, I loved them but I barely wore them - but it's true. I was so afraid of breaking them or causing them to get damaged that I just didn't wear them. They were expensive - around two hundred - and haven't been made again. Buying these shoes made me think twice about buying Irregular Choice again. I haven't since. I am going to attempt to get them fixed but I don't think it's going to work. I can't see anyone being excited about having to fix the gold!
As you can see - it is badly scuffed on the toes, the sole is coming away from the shoe, the heel is in bad need of a repair and there are holes in the sole. Its so badly damaged for something that was worn very little. I wrote to Irregular Choice to tell them about this and ask if they fix shoes or know someone who might - and I pretty much got told to F off in a nicer way. It just wasn't anything they cared to help me with. I bought it, they had my money so why take five minutes to help someone who was a big customer (I own over twenty pairs of their shoes from era)
I didn't ask for a refund or anything - just a suggestion about where to get paint or something to fix it!
In fact does anyone know anyone that could fix a gold shoe or wouldn't be bothered by it?
