These shoes are one of my later SA items, so I haven’t actually had the chance to wear them a lot except for indoors, but I will still try to give you a proper review.
Because I’m light years (and about $370) away from owning the SA dress, the shoes from this episode were very low down on my list of Clara items to get, but I realized that I don’t actually own a nice pair of black pumps, so I started to low-key look for them. I kept seeing a handful of pairs on Vinted alone, but they were never in my size and most of them were a bit more expensive than I would have liked. From what I’ve seen on Vinted so far, most sellers wanted between £35 and £65 for the Clarks shoes, but I got a little luckier with my size and got them for £20 (postage included). I’m sure that if you search eBay, you will find a pair sooner or later, but for postage reasons, I decided to stick to my German Vinted site for this pair and not get tempted to buy from abroad with horrendous shipping costs.
The shoes run true to size and I can comfortably fit in my UK5 pair like I had hoped I would. I also discovered something that’s probably gonna turn these shoes into my favourite party dress shoes: the Clarks Chorus shoes are padded and just walking around my living room in them was very comfortable, so I can see myself wearing them a lot when there’s an occasion for fancy shoes. They have the perfect height and the padded inlays make them really comfortable.
