The shoe section at Marks & Spencer is one of the best on the high street, but it’s not often that one particular pair causes a frenzy quite as big as this.
The Fran Bow Court Shoes, part of the store’s collection of footwear created by fashion influencers that launched earlier this year, flew out of stock in a staggering three hours when they first arrived on the M&S website, leaving hundreds of fashion fans disappointed – but now they’re back for a second run.
Despite the fact the restock only happened this morning, many sizes are already showing as sold out once again, but Fran Bacon of The Fashion Lift, the blogger behind the chic pink bow design, says there’s more on the way.
‘There is more stock it just needs to be replenished online,’ she assured her 81k followers. ‘Will keep you updated but don’t worry there are shoes there!!! There will be more stock available of all sizes.’
In a statement shared on the listing, Fran shared her excitement about the opportunity, saying: ‘I have worn M&S shoes for as long as I can remember. I love the statement bow and how feminine they feel.
‘It was important to me that they represented my personality and I think it has been captured so well. The neutral colours mean they can be worn with everything, dressed up or down; I think I’ll be wearing “The Fran” all summer.’
Those who’ve already been lucky enough to place an order were rejoicing in the comments, with one writing: ‘I was waiting for these since their initial launch, I’m so happy to have them at last. Can’t wait to wear them with everything!’
‘I got mine the other day (lucky with the timing online after checking every ten minutes for days),’ said another. ‘And can’t tell you how much I love them! Well done Fran you’ve designed a cracker.’
And if you’ve not yet managed to snag a pair? Keep refreshing, as Fran is certain there’s more on the way!
