Got to love the postman when he brings new shoes – today my very first pair of Rocket Originals arrived 🙂
Siobhan has had a pair for a couple of months now and loves hers (a cream pair of ‘Lucy’), but I wasn’t quite sure about the styles and colours available to take the plunge and buy my own… that is until this weekend when I spied the most fabulous gold leather ‘Ruby’ sandals on the website! I bought them straightaway, almost no hesitation!
While I was hoping for a style with a higher heel, ‘Ruby’ has a very flattering low wedge and they are very comfortable, not to mention shimmery and sparkly!! I love metallic shoes as they tend to go with anything and everything 🙂
I have quite wide feet – my left foot especially is quite podgy and my right foot is slightly wider than a standard fit. This style is slightly tight across the widest part of my foot (around the potential bunion bit!), but they don’t pinch at all and I can feel them getting comfier by the minute.
Both Siobhan and I are a UK size 5 (EU 38) and we each find Rocket Originals are true to size – Siobhan has much narrower feet than me, so that added to my hesitation initially when I was considering the fit.
Rocket Originals is a small family business bringing us vintage style shoes and clothing – they are so passionate about the authenticity of the 1940s and 1950s styles that their products go beyond being inspired by the styles of that time – they very much are the styles of that time! Each style is named after style icons of the era, too.
We have both been impressed by the speed of service (ordered on Friday night, delivery on Tuesday), quality and styles from Rocket Originals – we may only have one pair each right now, but we know we’ll be on the look out for more to complete all our outfits 🙂
As well as ladies shoes, Rocket Originals also offer knitwear, belts and men’s shoes and socks.
