It is my 8 year anniversary with my fiancee! 😀 As a treat he gave me a lovely gift of these shoes that I have been eyeing up, the Iron Fist Daytime Sleeper Creepers. My boyfriend actually managed to get these in the sale at only £35.99 rather than the original price of £52.99. Also if you sign up to their newsletter you get an extra 15% off. Which pretty much pays off the delivery fee and cheeky VAT that they add at the checkout.
Iron Fist Daytime Sleeper Creeper Review
This box was covered in gray plastic, but my boyfriend removed that and wrapped in wrapping paper. IronFist has very pretty packaging and its all nicely wrapped with branded tissue paper. There is also scrunched up cardboard paper inside the shoes to keep their structure.
Gorgeous shoes! I don’t mind paying a bit extra when you get shoes that have pushed the design and you get something unique and interesting. Added details on these shoes are the brogue design looks like bats. There are attached bat wings and the sole is coffin shaped.
- A unique shoe, I have never seen anyone with these before.
- Very sturdy although not too heavy as they use a thick foam for the sole.
- Vegan ‘Leather’
- Bat wings are removable and I could wear them on other shoes.
- They are a lot higher (1 1/2 inches ish) than normal creepers, so I will have to get a hang of walking in them.
- The shoes needs a bit breaking in, especially the back as it rubs a little.
- I did have a fault with the shoe…..
The problem with my shoes was that I found a small nick on the underside of one of the bat wing.
My fiancee emailed the company and they responded straight away. They apologised profusely and said they would send me a new pair, no extra charge. Unfortunately there wasn’t a new pair in stock in my size. So, I could either send them back and get a full refund or get 20% refunded if I decided to keep them. I decided to keep them as the damage is really minimal, you couldn’t see it when worn and I still loved the shoes.
Although, there was problems with the shoe and it was disappointing. I cannot fault the staff for trying to fix the problem.
In conclusion I LOVE these shoes and cant wait till I feel confident enough in my walking abilities to wear them without falling over! I am currently wearing them around the house!
