Recently I realised that the only flat shoes I had in my possession were my Asos Velvet Flatforms & a pair of brogues.
Of course I was happy looking at all my gorgeous shoes, but I did wonder if maybe I really did need a pair of proper flats.
So I spent the next few weeks searching high and low in my favourite stores. Unfortunately most of the stores just had the same generic ‘ballet flats’ which don’t appeal to my sense of style. I did find a lovely pair from Miss Selfridge, but unfortunately I needed a half size, which they don’t do.
So I finally turned to my trusty ASOS! The only reason I hadn’t gone there in the first place was because I wanted to try the shoes on in person. As I mentioned before I’m usually a half size, but my shoe size also varies between 3-5 depending on the store, so it can be difficult.
I settled on these LULA Colour Blocked Pumps.
The little heel poking out means that they look slightly more ‘grown up’ than regular flats and I choose the black as they would go with most things (this is always my problem!).
I was so happy and relieved when they arrived as the size 4 fit perfectly and the shoes are great quality.
Another thing I have found about a lot of flats is that the quality isn’t so great and the soles tend to wear quickly.
I took advantage of the 25% student discount ASOS were offering alongside free next-day delivery.
I would suggest people sign up to UNiDAYS (if you’re a student) and the ASOS newsletter, just so you know when the latest offers are taking place, as they usually only last a few days.
