If you’re looking for new clothes and shoes on the high street, Marks & Spencer is one of your safest – and most purse-friendly – bets. From stylish picks backed by Holly Willoughby to exciting collaborations with big brands, M&S is proving itself as a go-to for affordable clothes.
But while trend-led styles may come and go, there are some fits that have become bestsellers for the brand year after year – and now, one of the most popular offerings of all is back on our radar for 2021.
In previous seasons, the M&S Leather Square Toe Pumps have flown off the shelves in double-quick time after being hailed as the perfect staple flat. The unique details, like the almond toe and v-shaped dip, make the shoes look like a high-end line – but in fact, they’ll set you back just £35. Not bad when you consider they’re real leather too.
Customer who get their hands on previous runs praise the footwear’s comfort and versatility: ‘Stylish and extremely comfortable. Really good quality for the price,’ wrote one on the M&S website.
‘Now have 3 pairs in this style, they are so comfortable,’ agreed another, while a third added: ‘I have finally found a pair of ballet flats that I adore.’ One even said ‘they feel like you’re wearing slippers’ because they’d found them so snug on their feet.
That sounds like exactly what we need after spending pretty much all of lockdown in slippers and flip flops. Head to your local store pronto and you might just manage to beat the crowds and snag a pair.
In addition to neutral hues like black, cream and tan, M&S also has a smart navy and a cool gold metallic version of its M&S Leather Square Toe Pumps to take you through the day and into the night.
