In my shoe book, Clarks is filed under Comfy heels but boring designs. Ok, I’m being kind. Its more like “Clarks – Comfy but Frumpy” Tell me you disagree 😛 But some of the more recent designs are starting to catch my eye and when I spotted the ad for this pair of bright yellow heels, I just knew I HAD to have it. I just HAD TO!
Don’t you think they are adorable? Its ok if you don’t, I love them and I actually went and hunted them down right here in Malaysia. Oh yes, we get these here and if I might say so, they are just as adorable in real life! The shoe is suede which sent up a bit of warning bells. I’m not terribly good with wearing suede shoes because they tend to wear out faster and its hard to clean, and yellow is potentially going to be a mess if it gets dirty.
The only problem is I could not wear them. Boohoo! 🙁
I went to 2 Clarks stores to hunt down the Dollar Craze heels. The first in Bangsar Village only have them in navy blue suede which is pretty but definitely not as pretty as the yellow version. I then went down to the store in MidValley Megamall where they have it in both navy and yellow and in my sizes too!
What’s the problem then? The Dollar Craze heels only come in Wide Fit for wider feet. I have rather narrow feet and usually take a narrow or medium fit shoe and the Wide Fit is just too loose around the top. Size wise, I felt it fits true to size. I take a UK4 or sometimes UK3 in Clarks shoes and I could wear both sizes. The problem was in the fit 🙁
Otherwise, the shoe is very comfortable. There is a softness and a bit of spring to the step so walking in it was super easy. The heel height which is about 2.5inches maybe, is a good comfortable height without putting too much pressure on the back and legs.
The buckle bit also tended to hit at my ankle which might be attributable to the shape of my feet. The yellow which is labeled as Ochre is a little deeper in person but I just love the punch out holes and crimped edging that makes it look oh so delicate!
It would be nice if Clarks made this one in a normal fit, and in normal smooth leather. Needless to say, I’d be all over it! I’m on the hunt for a pair of yellow shoes now! They look so fun and sunny on my feet!
Have you seen the Clarks Dollar Craze shoes? Yellow shoes – do you have a pair?
Now, will someone who has wider feet than I do please go and buy these and make me jealous? 😛 This is about the only time in my life that I wish I had wide feet 😛 I believe its RM368 but I could be mistaken.
