Go on.. no one is counting


jeffrey campbell clogs

Ups.. Yeah I know.. I have to calm down with buying clogs.. or maybe not.. plus I am totally allowed since I am skandinavian and they could pass as our national shoe.. Anyway here is how the story went.. I was in topshop just strolling around with Tasha, catching up on the new stuff when I remembered a rumor I heard about Jeffrey Campbell shoes being sold at topshop...(?) So I thought I'd ask around... No. No sorry we don't. I am afraid, was the answer I got about 5 times until I made it into the section that sells Office shoes... and here I got my answer. The only ones they had left were these clogs, in my size. They spoke to me and I answered. 

So to you UK people that are interested, Office will be stocking Jeffrey Campbell from now on and they will receive a new batch of these clogs in black & tan in mid May. ( ps. these run small, I had to go up a size)
 
I also have to share the best shoe fitting trick, that I had to use on these. Some of you may have heard of it, works best on leather/suede shoe that feels too tight and rub your feet.. 

1. wear the shoes on bare feet inside your house for a while so you know which part rubs and may cause blisters 
2. buy moleskin tape/ fabric bandaid from the pharmacy and wrap a strip around the sore spot 
3. soak your feet in water then dry them leaving the tape wet 
4. wear your shoes with the wet tape on and the tight parts will mold perfectly to your feet, without stretching the whole shoe.

Tadaaa.

I've only heard of the wet wool socks and ice bag method..so this was a completely new tip for me!

Those clogs are amazing, I wish we had Office (and Top Shop for that matter) here in Finland..

Hi Sandra,
UAHOOOO incredibly cool !!!
We call them in Italy "Zoccoli" and they're often open toes; soooo sexy !!!!
Luckily summer is coming and zoccoli are back as the most trendy and fashion summer shoes, at least here..
Tell us that you're going to post some pics of you wearing them (or other wooden heeled mules)bare feet .......
One kiss from Italy, Max

Hey! What european size do you normally wear and what US size you got from these shoes?About to order these myself and not sure what size to get! I would appreciate your help. xx

SANDRA said...

HI! I normally wear a 37 but in these 38 was perfect.. Not sure what that is is US cos I have us sizes between 6-7 so check jeffrey campbells or the websites size chart to be sure.. but I would recomed to go a whole size up and I have heard other say the same about these shoes.. hope this helps! xxx

Anonymous said...

It did help indeed,thank you! I think I'm gonna go with the 38 aswell. Normally wear 37 like you but I'm afraid if I'll go with the 37 (said to be US 6 on the site) it'll be too snug and don't want that to happen! Have you gotten a chance to wear these yet? I've read they're suppose to be pretty comfy! :)-P-

SANDRA said...

HI, Yes I think you are making the right decision! 37 in these would have been too small and it would look horrible if the heel would be outside the shoe, you know? 38 was almost too snug when I first got them.. now they're perfect. They are super comfy too, I wear them all the time... Try the streching trick I wrote about, it really helped with these! good luck.. you will soon have wonderful shoes! :)

Anonymous said...

I really do hope that I'm making the right decision! :) You're right though, it'd look terrible if the shoe was too small. I think this pair will be the most popular summer heel in my closet! Getting these in nude. :) Thanks for your help and tips! -P-

SANDRA said...

amazing! I also have a pair of the white ones on the way...... they are so lovely that I need them in more than one color! let me know when you recive them how they fit! and if they don't, I'm sure you'll get you money back on ebay!

Same thing happened to me, it was just a random visit to Topshop, and normally I don't even go to that section with non-Topshop shoes, but because I didn't find anything interesting in Topshop itself (went to see their clogs in real life and got so disappointed- they r usually great at height, but clogs' heels were way too low 4 my taste) I decided to check other brands, and saw these clogs!! I couldn't even dream of finding JC there, so grabbed a pair in black in my size but also found them too small so they didnt have a next size in black anymore (I was shopping 2 days earlier than u I think) so went for bigger size in tan, thinking I might exchange later but I never returned. They really are cool, tan is easy to match, plus not as popular as black version. It feels like the whole size is too much tho, half a size would probably fit better, but I don't mind cause I love to wear socks with heels anyway :)

Hey! First of all - love your blog, it is inspiring everytime you post something new! Im about to order these shoes and another pair from office - do you know anything about the sizes in general when it is shoes from Office, or is it only these shoes I have to get a size bigger then usual?
Keep up the good work, im looking forward to it(;

SANDRA said...

Hey, sorry it took a while to aswer... as for the office shoes... I would say they run true to size.. but jc are smaller :)

xxx thanks for the lovely comments everyone!
