  1. ASOS has released quite a few new heeled styles recently that appear to be ‘not available’ in sizes up to UK13. From past experience this would suggest that they may be available soon. Styles include, ‘Cheryl’ knee boots, ‘Kara’ OTK boots, ‘Exactly’ slouch boots, ‘Kendra’ black patent OTK boots, ‘Eventful’ ruched boots, and ‘Niki’ high heeled mules. Watch this space...
  2. That’s where the pause button comes in handy. The pointed toe ankle boots in the first shot, and the rounded toe courts would be my favourites. Some very nice match shots used in the editing of the trailer.
  3. I’ve used stiletto-heel-tips.co.uk once before to buy some metal heel tips as a replacement. They were a good company to deal with and I would use them again.
  4. Now also available in silver... https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-phoenix-pointed-high-heeled-court-shoes-in-silver/prd/20556429?colourwayid=60064023&SearchQuery=&cid=4172
  5. I’m not sure that having a large collection counts as a downside, unless you’re referring to your bank balance! I wish I had a larger collection, or at least one with more variety. The lack of opportunity to wear them certainly would be a downside.
  6. The latest ASOS style to be made available up to a UK13 https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-phoenix-pointed-high-heeled-court-shoes-in-black-patent/prd/14839453?ctaref=recently+viewed I don’t think these are as stylish as their Penelope courts, which have a higher and nicer shaped heel.
  7. Some guys (with smaller feet) get all the luck! I would think the shaft length increases. There is a fractional difference between the 12 and 13 but that could just be coincidental. I look to have less going up over the knee than on Freddy’s, but I am 6’ 3”.
  8. They are quite odd. I find it makes the boot a bit more interesting, though still deciding which to keep, if any.
  9. I agree they are a generous fit. I really like the profile of the boot, but not a fan of the view from the top. Nothing to do with the pointed toe but the sides just seem a bit too baggy - they bulge out unnecessarily. I’m not convinced going down a size will improve on this. I tried mine on with some skinny jeans and I liked the overall look a lot more. Mine have just enough width at the ankle to fit over the top of the boot. I think the 3” block heel on the Chelsea boot is probably the upper level of “manly” heel. They do feel like you’re wearing a heel, but obviously not to the same extent as a 5” stiletto. I also bought the ASOS Cuban heeled western boot, and although the heel is only a slighter lower than the Chelsea boot, the difference in angle and shape means they don’t feel like you’re wearing a heel at all. The shape of the western boot’s sole is more triangular than the Chelsea boot, which has more of a s-shape.
  10. If it was somebody who deliberately swapped them over, then I thank them. Both boots fit perfectly. Normally I’d have only one foot that felt good, and would have to put up with the other either being squished in or go up a size and leave the other with too much room. I tried them on with skinny jeans this afternoon and they look great. So good, in fact, I wanted to fling open the front door and take a stroll down the street. But the world’s not ready for that. I’ve clearly got skinnier legs than the ASOS model, so there is a little room inside the boot shaft, but not much. They fitted over the jeans fine. I did have a stroll indoors, and on carpet they were a breeze to walk in. I mentioned before that the heel measures 4 7/8”. They are set back but with a subtle curve, meaning the heel tip falls just inside the back of the boot.
  11. Maybe you’re right. The box also had two sets of spare tips. Although, the double imprint on the sole does seem more of a manufacturing error. At least I didn’t receive two left feet!
  12. I collected the ASOS “Kendra” boot this morning. Those that have read the other thread on ASOS will know that I originally bought them in a UK12 but found the left boot a little too tight. Like many, I have one foot larger than the other - in my case a whole size. I had an opportunity to quickly try them on this morning. I tried the left boot first (my larger foot) and although still tricky to get on due to the narrow styling, the fit was okay. Not as much difference as I thought there might be, so I did double check the size on the boot. The box definitely said UK13. On the sole of the boot “13” was imprinted, and also printed on the inside of the boot was size 13. I tried the right boot expecting to have a little bit more room, but was surprised to find a similar fit to last time. Which is not too bad, as this is my smaller foot. I checked the sizing on the boot and found this... In case it isn’t clear, it seems to have both 12 and 13 imprinted on the sole. I checked the inside of the boot... It looks like someone has tried rubbing out the “2”. Very odd. I compared the boots, and although not noticeable, there is a difference when held next to each other. Difficult to show in a photo but here goes... There’s no difference in heel height, thankfully, so I don’t think any one would notice when they’re on. Is this fate? Were these boots meant for me? Did ASOS read my post and decide to send me a larger left boot and smaller right boot?! Part of me feels funny about having boots that aren’t a natural pair. But, they both fit and there’s no visible difference when on.
