Those of you who know me will know that I have had a little obsession with the Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers for quite some time. I already developed a little collection of hidden heel sneakers or trainers over the past year and a bit, but from brands like Topshop, River Island and ASH. My dream pair was always the Isabel Marant sneakers, but I could never afford their price tag and I always assumed they would be too heavy and bulky for my small legs. I didn’t live anywhere near a place I could try them on, so I always put my lust for them at the back of my mind (even though I would check eBay now and then).
I was out in town with my boyfriend on the weekend and we took a wander into Square Boutique in Bath. I’ve been in their multiple times before as they stock brands like AG Jeans, J Brand, Rag & Bone, Marc Jacobs etc, so it’s always been a store I was fond of. I didn’t know that they had started stocking so many Isabel Marant pieces though! That’s when I saw these! The Isabel Marant Bekket Over Basket Sneakers in Khaki, in the sale! They were literally a dream price, one that I didn’t think I would ever find these shoes at, that’s for sure! I was hoping that they had a size 40 as these run a bit small, but unfortunately they were out of stock, so after trying the 39 and them being quite tight, I put them back on the shelf and left the store. It was unfortunate because they were so flattering and looked amazing.
Just like most things, these were playing on my mind as we were walking away, so after about 10 minutes, we went back to the store and I decided to take them home with me. I thought for the price, I couldn’t say no, even though there’s no returns on sale items. They are quite tight on me and squash my big toes a bit, but I am currently doing the sock trick to stretch my shoes out, in the hope that they will fit me after they give a bit. They are suede, which I know stretches out a huge amount, but these are one of my most coveted shoes and they are so gorgeous in this brown/olive combination that I just don’t want to let them go. I am determined to make them work and I will keep on stretching them as much as possible! Have any of you got the Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers? Even my boyfriend likes these and he generally doesn’t like me in sporty looking shoes! Do you like them? If you do, you can purchase lots of other colour combinations and styles online at stores like Matches, Selfridges and My Theresa.
