These Marks & Spencer party shoes are set to fly off the shelves

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a little extra sparkle – or actually, a lot of extra sparkle, if these new Marks & Spencer slingbacks are anything to go by.

A snap of the fabulous pair was reposted from stylist Fatima Truscott’s Instagram account to the M&S Fashion PR feed, and instantly attracted more than 5,000 likes and hundreds of comments from followers who loved the glitter-infused look.

‘Oh my I need these sparklers in my life!’ exclaimed one commenter, while a second agreed: ‘I’m buying them immediately.’

‘I’ve just ordered these and can already feel my feet twitching with joy,’ another declared.

In fact, the £35 shoes have proved so popular that some sizes are already sold out online, much to the disappointment of one commenter who wrote: ‘I want to cry, they’re out of stock in my size.’

Block Heel Jewel Slingback Court Shoes, £35, Marks & Spencer

Boasting a pointed toe and a small block heel – high enough to give a boost to posture, but low enough to allow you to stay on the dance floor all night long – the fancy footwear is set to be the party shoe of the season. Dress up your denim, set off a midi dress in style, or add extra razzle dazzle to tailoring for an event; no matter how you wear them, compliments are practically guaranteed.

And if you love the look, but aren’t so keen on the full-on glamour of the all-over glitz? Marks & Spencer also has a black pair in the same fit, with a more subtle jewel detail and an even lower price tag of just £19.50 – so you shall go to the ball!
