As promised in my previous post which featured a pair of shoes from this order, here is my review for my mini haul from Wholesale7.net!
Total price of items: $28.45USD
Shipping fee: $32.98
I paid a total of $57.71USD including shipping via Paypal, for 3 pairs of shoes- which means that each pair was just under $20USD!
I used EMS express shipping, and the package arrived a week later (to Australia). The three pairs of shoes came packaged in two boxes, with 3 shoes in each, which I found to be very smart and shipping fee-saving indeed.
Colours: Green, Red
Weight: 1.1kg (relevant to shipping costs)
I ordered this style in two different colours- green and the pink/red colour. I was in love with the super cute design, with the round toe, thick and rectangular heel, and the ankle straps! Plus of course the lovely candy pop colours- I wasn't sure about the versatility of the green shade but I tried it with white denim shorts and a floral bustier in this post :)
I'm extremely, extremely pleased with the outcome! The shoes have kind of a smooth, matte finish. There are no stitching problems or irregularities anywhere. They look very well made, and look exactly like the stock photos in both design and colour. My favourite part is the heel- I love how they're not rounded or tapered towards the end like most, but from a side view they look like straight, rectangular columns. Gives the shoes a pretty unique look and I love the way they contrast with the rounded toe.
5/5 (for both pairs)
Weight: 1.3kg (relevant to shipping costs)
The material of the shoes is slightly scratchy and feel a little cheap. The ankle straps are also actually pretty flimsy and thin. So when the shoes are worn, they don't wrap around your ankles smoothly but there will be an awkward little part sticking out. If you look at the close-up stock photo you can see what I mean. However it's not too noticeable, and it's not like the photos were misleading, so as long as the straps aren't actually falling apart then I'm perfectly content with this tiny flaw!
I'm just finding things to nit-pick over for the sake of a review, but really I'm very happy overall. The design is exactly what I expected from the stock photos and the shoes are pretty comfortable to wear, albeit being rather tight around the toe area, so I probably wouldn't want to wear them for a whole day. Only for that will I take off half a point :P
I'll be posting up a photoshoot with these shoes later on in the week, so look out! :)
Overall, I am super duper impressed! I did another haul from Wholesale7 for which I did a review here , but my experience this time was much better (probably because I didn't order any clothes)- although many people have had bad experiences with ordering shoes from Asian wholesale websites. If I was guaranteed the same level of quality for my next order, I would definitely be making Wholesale7.net my one-stop shop for shoes at super bargain prices. I'm uber happy at receiving such value for money! When they get in some new arrivals in the next month or so I might just be making another order ;)
