Review: Jeffrey Campbell Lita Dupes

Hello!

This review has been a long time coming. It's not a secret that I'm a contender of the world's clumsiest person championship. I manage to somehow trip up in thin air so heels... aren't really something I'm much of an expert with.

These however, are an exception to my frequent falls. I was intrigued by the Jeffrey Campbell Lita shoes (yawn - cliché) due to the huge hidden platform masked by the height of the heels. Will it give you the illusion of longer legs? Yes. Would they be easy to walk in? Maybe. Would they fool everyone  into thinking that I can walk in 5/6 inch heels without breaking a sweat (or in my case, my arm?) OUI!

I decided on some eBay dupes first to see how I'd get on. Now, I love me a statement printed anything so when I saw this crazy paisley number, it was a flurry of PayPal passwords and manic 'checkout' clicks. Jeffrey Campbell doesn't seem to offer this particular print in the range so it won't be able to fool those beady-eyed fans but these designer-inspired platforms are worth every tut and shake of the head from loyal customers. They're very comfortable and with help of the platform attached to the bottom of your feet, you don't seem to notice the height of the shoes either. You'll get to feel like a giant without having sore toes or blisters to match. Score. It definitely doesn't strain your feet or force them to bend at an unrealistic angle like stilettos/non-platform heels do. I took them with me to Madrid in June and managed to walk for 4/5+ hours on cobbled uneven streets without any injuries to report (although my eyes were fixed on the floor with every step that I took). A winner in my books.

 I definitely recommend them and think I'm ready to take the plunge into purchasing the real deal soon... or use the money to buy 3 more pairs of dupes. Bonjour burgundy faux leather shoes. 

If you're interested, you can find the heels here.

What do you think about the Jeffrey Campbell Lita dupes?

  5. Wow these shoes are amazing!!! Not sure I really need the extra 5/6 inches though, I think I'd end up towering over everyone! :(
