Gucci Unboxing

Following on from my last post about Gucci I am pleased to share with you some recent purchases. I had some store credit due to a faulty repair to the shoes featured in the previous Gucci post. I was deeply saddened that the shoes had been damaged after being resoled. I gave my shoes to Gucci to add a rubber sole to them however after being sent back twice the damage to the shoes were still evident. I was a bit perplexed as to how they could become damaged and unfortunately Gucci did not offer any explanation however they did apologize and do their best to resolve the situation.

I was invited to the Bond Street store pick an alternative pair of shoes to replace the damaged pair. Initially I was looking to exchange for the same pair however they were sold out as they were produced in limited quantities. I tried on several pairs however I struggled to find a pair that lived up to the previous ones. What attracted me to the shoes in the first place was the color. I already have several pair of black shoes so immediately anything black was taken out of consideration. This didn’t leave too many to chose from however the last pair I tried on were the pair that I took home with me.

With some persuasion from my Sales Assistant I tried on the Vegas loafers in a lovely shade of bottle green from the Pre Fall collection. These weren’t my initial first choice however I was surprised how much I liked them when I tried them on. For what was available they were the most similar in style to my previous pair having a square toe and a blocked heel. Having  decided upon them I then realized I had some money remaining to make up the price of the previous pair.

With Summer approaching  I decided to go for the classic web stripe sliders. Unfortunately they were out of stock however my Sales Assistant ordered a pair for me which came in no time. The sliders will be an easy go to shoe in Summer for adding a touch of class to simple outfits.  What was initially an unpleasant experience turned into a positive one however I would be reluctant to send my shoes away again to add the rubber sole. Even though I had to make several trips back and forth to the store I cannot fault the service I received in store. I feel that the sliders will get lots of use throughout Summer however I’ve still to break in my loafers for the moment.
