Seeing that Topshop now sell shoes in a size 2 (yes that’s right, a size 2!) online and in store got me ridiculously excited. Unfortunately, not every brand in the world stocks size 2’s and when they do, they are often still extremely hard to come by! I love Topshop shoes, so it always made me so sad when I couldn’t buy any of them as they didn’t have my size. Now they do, and as you can see, I decided to treat myself. You may notice there’s a nice colour theme too… I just can’t get enough of black shoes!
The first pair I bought are a cute pair of trainers, which I actually picked up in the sale for just £12, how good is that?! I haven’t properly broken them in yet, so I can’t tell quite how comfy they are just yet. I absolutely love the stitch pattern on the side of these, it just adds such a nice girly detail to them. I don’t own many lace up shoes, only my Converse and Nike trainers, so I’m looking forward to getting more wear out of these.
I also bought some heeled sandals. I’ve been wanting some shoes like these for a while, as they aren’t too high for dinner or a date, but they’re not too low to go out clubbing in either. Not to say that going out clubbing in flats is a bad thing, but when I go I tend to wear a pair of shoes with a bit of a heel, it’s just what I prefer to wear. I’ve actually worn these clubbing and they were super comfy to wear. I also love the chunky feel of these shoes and how flattering they look on, and not to mention how versatile they are. These shoes are great for dressing up a pair of jeans and will look gorgeous with so many skirts and dresses too, so I’m very happy with this little purchase.
My final shoe purchase was a pair of slip on trainers. I’ve had a pair similar to these from River Island for so long now and they were getting pretty worn, so I decided to invest in a new pair. It took me weeks and weeks to track down a new pair, as I couldn’t find anywhere that stocked shoes like this in a size 2. But, I was out shopping with one of my friends, and we found the last pair of these in a size 2 for just £7 in the sale! I definitely felt like someone was watching over me, it was the best feeling ever. If you’re a size 2 and can’t get hold of shoes easily then you will understand, haha. I was desperate for a new pair as shoes like these go with so much. You could wear them with jeans and a simple t-shirt, or you could even mix it up and put them with a day dress and a bomber jacket to add a cool dressed up but dressed down kind of vibe.
Topshop, you’ve done well. And please, never stop stocking shoes in a size 2! Also, I’ve linked the shoes I bought below. I can’t find the slip on trainers online anymore so I linked some similar pairs.
Have you bought any new shoes recently? Do you struggle with finding shoes in your size?
