    Default Carvela Platform Sandals

    So I think it's safe to say the platform sandal is back and better than ever. And, as you can tell from my latest posts, I'm quite obsessed with them. So for those of us that have champagne taste on a beer budget, I think I may have found a solution.

    I was browsing for some platform sandals, and I came across a brand called Carvela. I think this may be a UK based company because every site I search for to buy their shoes comes up in the UK. They're all less than $300, and most well below that. You can see everything that is available via polyvore.

    I found a few styles that I really like.

    Anchor Platform - $210 at KurtGeiger.com, $220 via asos.com
    Available in blue and pink, 5.25" heel


    Ghost High Heel - $236 via asos.com, $215 via debenhams.com
    Available in white and blue 6" heel


    So how about these? Is the lower price something that makes you like them more? Do you think they way they look is worth the price? I personally think these are priced well - not too expensive, but not cheap. I think they look well made, and also look really pretty. I think this is a brand that is worth giving a shot.

    Great finds Alex!!! I like the price point much better. I would definitely try these especially the second shoe in white.

    I agree - the price point on these are really reasonable, and I would definitely try them. I'm really liking the first pair, and they look less pink and more tan. I wish I could see them in person, because I don't know how they fit.

    These look great and the prices are reasonable. I love the 1st pair but would like to see them IRL too.

    Not bad!! I like the second one the most. That would look so killer with a nice summer dress! Love the prices too.

    I tried to find someone wearing these in a picture, but no one seems to be modeling them anywhere.
