The sensible tan leather sandals

I haven’t worn high heels since the beginning of the pregnancy. It’s not comfortable, definitely not healthy and it just feels wrong to totter around in stilettos .

So I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of very simple leather sandals in a decent quality, that can replace my beloved jelly shoes,  and live on my feet for the rest of the summer.

And yesterday I found the right pair.

These Silas sandals from Office are both cheap and comfy. And they have that perfect durable rubber sole which guarantees a long shoe life and steady feet, even on the most slippery of surfaces.

They cost £58 and come in navy blue too. Buy them here.


Elastic band sandals

Jeg leder stadig efter praktiske sandaler, der kan bære mig gennem sommeren. Faldt over to par på Offices hjemmeside, som jeg ikke har set i butikkerne. Første par hedder “Herman” og er magen til et par, jeg havde sidste år. Måtte smide dem ud, da de var slidt op efter måneders konstant fod-udnyttelse. Fås også i pink og blå og koster 40 pund. Køb dem her.

English: I’m still looking for practical summer sandals, and spotted two more “elastic band” sandals on the Office website (I haven’t seen them in any of the shops yet). First up is the “Herman”. I actually had these last summer and wore them to death. So SO comfortable, so might consider getting them again.  Come in pink and blue as well. Price: 40 pounds. Buy them here.

Og så er der dem her, som til forveksling ligner. De hedder “Liv” og er fra mærket Blowfish og koster 35 pund. Fås også i pink og gul. Køb dem her.

English: The second pair are almost identical  but are called “Liv” and from the brand Blowfish. Cost 35 pounds and come in pink and yellow as well. Buy them here.

Wishlist: Summer sandals

I går begav jeg mig ind til forfærdeligt befærdede Oxford Street, for at tjekke High Street butikkernes og især Topshops skoafdelings udvalg af sommersandaler. Jeg ledte efter et praktisk og behageligt alternativ til mine trofaste (men ikke så kønne) “Jellies” og havde forbudt mig selv overhovedet at overveje plateau og høje wedges.

Jeg prøvede blandt andet denne Nicklin sandal fra Aldo. Koster 40 pund i sort og den grå er på udsalg lige nu på Aldos website.

English: Yesterday I went to the most dreaded place of all, Oxford Street and Top Shop’s shoe department to look for some practical summer sandals. I seriously need a comfortable pair as I always end up wearing my Jellies. High wedges are no-go this time. So, although they are a bit boring,  I might end up getting these Nicklin sandals from Aldo. Price 40 pounds (the grey ones are on sale right now.)

Prøvede også disse fra Kurt Geiger (Huong 120 pund) men kvaliteten var for dårlig til prisen. De ser faktisk lidt billige ud.

I also tried one these from Kurt Geiger (Huong 120 pounds) but the quality wasn’t that great considering the high price. They actually look a bit cheap.

Og jeg prøvede dem her fra Carvela (Klauss, 95 pund),

And I tried these from Carvela, Carvela (Klauss, 95 pounds).

Jeg overvejede endda at købe at par sandaler fra Office som var næsten magen til mit favoritpar fra sidste sommer, Aldos “maune”. Office’s nye version har en lavere hæl, så de egner sig bedre til hverdagsbrug. Her er et billede af Aldos version.

I even considered buying a pair from Office that is almost identical to my favourite Aldo suede wedges from last year. Main difference is that these have a lower heel and are more comfortable for everyday use. I can’t find a picture of the Office ones, but here’s Aldo’s old version.

Jeg spottede også ret mange fine på Kurt Geigers velassorterede website. Må kigge forbi butikken senere og prøve dem på. Her er nogle af dem:

I also spotted quite a few nice ones on Kurt Geigers brilliant website, so I think I’ll have to stop by the shop later. Here are some of them:

"Lotus" from KG by Kurt Geiger, 75 pounds. Synthetic material though, so might not be that comfortable. Photo via kurtgeiger.com

Kurt Geiger "Depp", 120 pounds. I quite like the quirky look of these, but would def. need to try them on. Photo via kurtgeiger.com

"Links", KG by Kurt Geiger. 65 pounds. Very nice but not practical enough. Photo via kurtgeiger.com

"Attila", KG by Kurt Geiger, 65 pounds (before: 100). I really like these plus they are on sale, yay!! Photo via kurtgeiger.com

"London", KG by Kurt Geiger, 59 pound (before 85). I like the basic and classic look of these and can imagine myself wearing them all summer. Photo via kurtgeiger.com
