My New Public Desire Shoes

So a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled across a company that made me feel like I was in heaven. I was just jumping from one account to another on Instagram, just casually browsing when I came across a site for Public Desire. After looking at the photos on the account and seeing loads of amazing shoes, I knew that I just had to buy some as soon as possible; so that's what I did.

A couple of days ago, I ordered the Atalia Cleated Sole Platform Heel Boots and they arrived today. At first, I thought they were too big and I felt disheartened (I hate sending things back), but after putting on two layers of socks, they fit perfectly. I know that people shouldn't have to do this but it saves the hassle. 

The platform is 2 inches and the heel is 6 inches. I found them quite hard to walk in at first but I think over time, it'll become easier and make sure you're wearing comfy socks! I wore quite thick walking socks with these and they felt much comfier than just wearing normal socks.

However, these shoes are beautiful. I ordered a size six in these (my usual size in shoe) and they turned up a little big, but I'm going to order another pair of shoes from Public Desire; the Kelis Cleated Sole Platform Heel Shoes and I think I may have to order the size 5 because they are open toe shoes which means I obviously can't wear thick socks with them, and hopefully the 5 will fit better than the 6. If the size 5 are too small, I have no idea what I'm going to do. I guess I'm that awkward 5.5 size which shops hardly ever do.

    1. I didn't send them back, I stuck with the size 6 and they were slightly too big...

  2. did you ever end up getting 5? im also a 6 and worried about sizing, thanks :)

    1. no i didn't "/ if you're a 6 - same as me - they will probably be slightly too big
