Norbert - Gnome
Today I am going to talk a little about my latest character heel addition Norbert. The Autumn/Winter range is just around the corner and I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of all new styles especially new characters. We have had a distinct lack of character heels in the past few weeks, apart from these beauties giving everyone's bank balance a hard time after appearing on the website just one day after the Star Wars collection had been launched.
This particular pair were actually released a couple of years ago under the name ''There's no place like Gnome' and it seems the Irregular Choice had either found sizeable stock or given us a little treat with an additional print run of these as there didn't seem to be too many pairs listed on the website and in turn sold our very quickly in the popular sizes.
You can tell that it was part of the 2013 collection by the box and sole. No something to be worried about personally as its easily in my top three sole designs by Irregular Choice and I am just pleased that I was able to nab myself a pair as I already have a pair of Chuckles (HERE) that are very comfortable.
The design for these is very simple and follows suit with alot of the Thumper heels which have the same design in different colours. The upper of these is on solid piece of blue fabric covering 90% of the shoe. The rest if made up of an intricate band of embroidery around the base of the shoe. For me combined with the button of similar style it always reminds me of a Russian doll or Russian tapestry. If you read a few of my blogs you will become accustomed to my strange thoughts on designs, for that I apologise.
