*updated below*

Hello Internet, sorry I have been neglecting you this week. It's just all this summery sunshine malarkey is so novel. Will you forgive me? No?

What about if I gave you some shoes?

I thought I saw an eyebrow raise just a glimmer then. Now, Internet you are a
UK shoe size 4
European size 37
US size 5 and a half
aren't you? Excellent.

I wish I could skip about in these cute Peter Jensen rubber soled pumps but they're too small for me. So if anyone wants them, I'd be more than happy for you to skip about in them instead. They say 38 on them but they aren't. I know this because I have little narrow dainty feet and take a size 37 or 37 and a half at most. While I can put these shoes on my feet, I can get roughly ten minutes of wear out of them before I can't walk anymore and have to take them off again. I don't want to be responsible for anyone else's pain so only enter if you're a straight up size (eur)37, (US)5.5, (UK)4. I've only worn them a couple of times and they're so perfect for spring...and it does seem that amazingly it is spring. SPRING GIVEAWAY...YAAAAAYYYYY.

Oh and that smudgy bit on one of them isn't dirt or foot mould or anything. It's where I took the shoe off in the park in Paris and put it back on again so you're even getting a little bit of the Jardin du Luxembourg thrown in. How generous am I. Also they do have laces, I just prefer them without so I'll put those in as well.

I'm not going to do a competition or anything like that - that would be a bit discriminatory against other shoe sizes, non? So just tell me in the comments if you're a size 37 and you want them to skip around in, then Lola will pick a name out of a hat soon-ish. And remember to leave an email address with your comment so I can contact you.

All I ask is that if you get them, you take a photo of yourself wearing them (it can be just of your feet if you like) and email it to me or post it on your blog (if you have one) and let me know.

Happy spring!

*EDIT* Oh fuckit. My moleskine says a euro 37/UK 4 is a US 5.5 but other conversion charts I've looked at disagree. They all seem to differ so if possible go by your UK or European size as I know those are correct...

I am hoping that you may still have these...I have been searching high and low for a friend who is looking to replace the pair she had (yes, she wore them and loved them that much!).

My email is:

I have my fingers crossed, and would be eternally grateful.
