I looked for these shoes everywhere in Europe last year. I spotted them on the J Crew On Line store 6 months earlier and thought for sure they’d be easy to find. No Luck. Its not the style its the colour. Suede Kitten heels are everywhere …. but my dears…. not in Olive. I would put Olive Suede kitten heel into the search engine every now and then….in the vague hope, but then one day up they popped on sale/new, my size, I died a little.
Of course I bought them on the spot. They arrived 10 days later and when I slipped them on they felt tight across the toes. Coombs I thought, my go to Shoe maintenance stop in the Strand Arcade, they are the only RM Williams repairer outside South Australia, and if they can’t do anything for your shoes or think it would be a waste of money they tell you very directly.
Sure enough a 24 hour stay for my new beauties and they slip on like a glove. I do hope the Coombs family has a succession plan in place, they are gold.
