Yesterday I didnâ€™t even know these shoes existed. Today, theyâ€™re all I can think about. Perforated suede, luxe animal prints, a chunky four-inch wedge and a summery peep toe front â€“ itâ€™s likeÂ Jeffrey Campbell invaded my shoe dreams and brought them to life. Had I not made a rookie error, I would have saved myself a chunk of cash and a hell of a lot of time.
Unfortunately, my first reaction was to write about these magnificent lace-up bootie wedges and halfway through writing this post, the nude sold out in my size. So with a half written article and a serious case of shoe anxiety, I did what any fashion obsessed writer would do â€“ I put my life on hold to track them down.
Three hours later, after coming to the devastating realisation that they were sold out online, I found them in a boutique 15 minutes up the road. And with the initial trauma of the loss still raw, I didnâ€™t even blink at their excessively high store mark-up or the ridiculously rude store assistant. My Mary Roks were safely in a shoebox, swinging in a bag that was attached firmly to my clingy hand. So whatâ€™s the moral of the story? When youâ€™re dealing with cult fashion items, you canâ€™t afford to get distracted.Â Literally.

hahah! You sound so much like me Laura (I love these too), whenever i go to tell someone about something i love, they sell out or i discover the website doesnt ship to Australia. mysterious ways of the world.
I wanted these so bad!! as you said, sold out literally worldwide (size 7 anyway..) soo I took the more ‘rad’ option of the exclusive screening in blue version – so excited for them to come!! great taste by the way (;
@Pippi – I am so glad it’s not just me – I feel like I am jinxed! You should have seen the mission I went through to get The Brazilian Butt Lift Workout DVD. This Jeffrey Campbell mission paled in comparison – hehe.
@Elly – That’s what size I am too – it ALWAYS sells out first. But what are these blue babies you speak of – they sound fabulous!
I was lucky and got them on sale at LF in the US. I think I paid around $50 usd for them!
Glad you found them! In case anyone was looking for them in an 8.5 or 10 (US size), we’re down to our last two at http://www.envishoes.com . We do ship international ;).
On a related note, Envi loves We Are Handsome. We featured you guys on our blog a month or two ago: http://blog.envishoes.com/root/?p=1181
Love the Mary Roks wedges, especially in grey. I already own a pair but for anyone who hasn’t nabbed them yet, I came across this listing on eBay for $50/new pair! http://tinyurl.com/37f5ywx
