Review: Brantano; Clarks Tustin Talent Shoes

Thursday, April 21, 2016

I have a slight shoe obsession. They are one of my biggest weaknesses. Brantano sell shoes for all the family from a range of different brands. I was sent these Clarks Tustin Talent shoes in dark tan from Brantano to review. This 70's inspired shoe has pretty cut out detailing and stand out stitching to give a vintage look.

The shoes are made from leather and have an amazingly comfy sole with cushion plus technology. I have found, as with most leather shoes, they gave me blisters at the back of my heel when I wore without socks, so do wear with socks or tights until you have broken them in. Apart from that they are actually really comfortable to wear. I have quite wide feet and haven't had any problems with the shoes width at all and they don't feel restrictive like many shoes do. I am a size 7 (UK) in shoes and the sizing is pretty perfect for me.

I love anything vintage looking and this time of year, my favourite outfits are usually dresses with tights or long floaty skirts and I have to say these shoes really suit that style! As I said above it is sensible to wear with socks, I find that ankle socks with a lace trim look gorgeous with these shoes. I got a few pairs from Primark a while back but have also seen them elsewhere.

They are not particularly cheap but I very rarely by cheap shoes now. I prefer to go for quality over quantity as I feel a good piece of footwear can make you feel great! They cost £55 which I think is very reasonable for a decent pair of high quality shoes. This also means they are eligible for free super saver delivery from the Brantano website. They also have free returns on all UK orders making it hassle free to change sizes if needed.
