I was so excited when the postman delivered these gorgeous Pilates shoes!
You see, I have foot issues. I hate bare feet…and the thought of standing bare foot and doing Pilates or Yoga makes me shiver…so I tend to just slide around in socks and do the best that I can.
But not anymore. I took these beauties with me this morning and was incredibly impressed!
Not only did the packaging make me smile…
So I managed foot slides, roll-downs, the clam…all sorts of moves in my Pilates class today, without any sign of slippage. I also had a little thought, as I was trying to point my foot during a certain move, that it was the closest to feeling like a ballet dancer that I would ever get!
Actually, I have found myself wearing them around the house too…I am not really a slipper person, as my feet get too hot, so these are perfect for my slippery wooden floors at home.
I have to say a massive ‘thank you’ to Lisa and Eleanor at Daisy Roots – I was really cheeky and asked them for a pair in return for a review…something that I have never done before. I did warn them that I was incredibly honest, and that if the shoes were a bit pants, I wouldn’t be telling any fibs in return for a freebie! They have faith in their Pilates shoes…and so do I now. If they can prevent my not very stable bodyweight from sliding around, then they are good to go as far as I am concerned.
If you fancy purchasing a pair, they are £26 and can be found here. They come in black, pink, and baby blue and are lush to wear – so soft and squidgy! They also do a wider fitting one for people like me who have square feet!
I will give you some bumpf off the website too – or else I won’t feel as if I have done a good job…
