You'll still end up on a revolving dance floor in the middle of the river.

I was so excited when the nice people at Voucher Codes got in touch, asking me if I was willing to test drive these absolutely stunning shoes from Schuh, and I course said yes. I mean, just look at them. They are GLORIOUS. Super high, covered in sparkles... Oh, I just want to wear them to SO many parties, dance all night whilst getting steadily drunker on free wine and then stagger home barefoot, eyemakeup smeared all over my face, holding a glittery shoe in each hand.

The reality, though, will see me with a different pair of shoes in each hand because these shoes DO NOT FIT. I have pretty wide feet - okay, very wide, I actually wear a size 6 when I'm more like a size 5 - and these shoes are not made for girls with wide feet. There isn't a lot of give in them, and as such they pinch a lot. Wearing them out for the night is, sadly, unthinkable. I hope you know I mean this with the utmost sincerity when I say that I AM DEVASTATED.

But my loss is your incredible gain, if you have narrow size 6 feet. I am giving these beauties away! All you have to do to enter is...

- leave a comment on this post with your email address (written 'at dot com' style is fine) 
- follow this blog via GFC
- to get an extra entry, 'Like' my Facebook page and/or tweet this: I've just entered @essbeevee's giveaway to win some sparkly Schuh heels at http://essbeevee.blogspot.com

Entries will close in 2 weeks on 13 December and I'll announce the winner shortly afterwards!

If you aren't a size 6 or are just not lucky enough to win, you can get your own pair here - and make sure to look at the Voucher Codes website for some great Schuh discounts!



  1. Schuh Discounts? I love you! lol

    I got these bad boys in purple a few months ago, yes they're gorgeous and I love them but they caused the side of my feet to blister and bleed.

    I think Schuh's own brand high heels are the most uncomfortable shoes I own and I own a few! Strangely their beauty always dazzles me into forking my money over anyway.

  2. Hoping this is my lucky day, they're so sparkly and perfect! And extra tall for the shorter among us...

  3. Oh god they're amazing I so want them! I follow as Lauren-Ella and my email is lauren_ella@hotmail.co.uk. And I tweeted! :)


  4. They are FABULOUS darling! Such a shame Schuh didn't make them wide enough :( personally I think all shoes should mould themselves to your feet, it would make more sense and save me buying those heel grip things all the time! Might I have the chance to win them? My email is dani.lodhi@hotmail.co.uk! Thank you :D xx

  5. WOW!!!!!! They are amazing and I have narrow feet :)
