Keep Or Return: Topshop Kerb2 Leather T-Bar Shoes






Topshop Kerb2 White / Topshop Kerb2 Pink

I have wanted a pair of t-bar mary janes for such a long time. I'm sure some of you will remember those Clarks Magic Step shoes from when you were younger. They came with a key that could turn a lock in the bottom of your shoes to reveal some pictures on the sole. I used to have a pair when I was a little girl and I really wish Clarks would bring them back, at least then I could get a pair for Chloe! When I spotted these on the Topshop website it was love at first sight. They instantly reminded me of those awesome Clarks shoes. They come in several different styles but I really couldn't decide between the white leather & pink leather pairs. My local Topshop didn't have them in store for me to try on so I figured I would just order them online & then I could return one of them. They arrived this morning and I'm having the hardest time choosing! They both look so cute but at £60 a pair, I can only really afford to keep one of them. I feel like the white would be more versatile because they would go with everything but the pink ones are ever so lovely too. Which is your favourite? Or do you think I should bite the bullet and keep both?




The frilly socks I'm wearing are also from Topshop. They were 3 for £8 so I couldn't resist getting them in every colour. I love this socks & shoes combo, I think its absolutely perfect for Spring. I probably look like a five year old wearing these with the Kerb2 shoes but I love them anyway!

  1. They're gorgeous and I adore the frilly socks. I am more drawn to the pink but I'm not sure why - I think the white would get scuffed and dirty (slightly) more easily and I think there's just something lovely about the pink ones! xxx

  2. They are so so cute! Very you! I think the white are more classic though :)

  3. I have the blue, lavender and black pairs of socks from Topshop, I love them! Also, I think you should definitely keep the mary-janes, I love them and they look great with the socks.

  4. Wow these give me a serious blast from the past! I think everyone had those shoes at school. Definitely keep them. They're perfect with tea dresses or in the winter with tights and just too nostalgic not to keep them :) xx

  5. I think the white are more classic and would go with more, but I think the pink are cuter and won't show up scuffs/dirt as much!

  6. very difficult choice but I would say keep the white ones, they're still super cute! I have the pale blue socks, now I want them all! xo

  7. I think the white pair is the one with the most potential. You could pair it with everything, and by the way I think both are really cute! keep the white one...

  12. I remember those Clark shoes1 I kept the plastic key for years after I grew out of the shoes. I say keep the pink. They're a little bit more unique compared to the white ones:D

  22. I think you should only keep one pair, I wouldn't think you'd get enough wear out of both! My favourite is the pink pair, and I think because they're such a pale pink they will still go with lots of things! I'll definitely be wearing socks and bare legs this spring/summer!

  30. Keep the white ones, the pink may keep longer, but the white will go with more outfits. Also, when this pastel trend is over, you can still wear white shoes for the next S/S 2013 season.

  32. I think the pink ones are far cuter! :) xo

  33. ahh what a tough choice!! i'd say keep both and if you find your not wearing one particular colour very much sell them on Ebay in a couple of months? but if you really have to choose one colour i'd say the pink, you'd be able to wear them in winter easier and wouldn't show up the dirt/scuffs. They would also brighten up so many outifts and they look super cute with the socks.. which I will have to buy..hehe. What a lovely nostalgic post!! Me and my friends used to call the magic shoes Princess shoes, I remember feeling so special wearing them.

    Ahh I just had to look on youtube for the video

  35. Definitely had a pair of these when I was younger and I remember absolutely loving them! These are so lovely, I'd definitely say pink are my favourite ones and as they are so pale they would be very versatile too I think! I love the colours of all the socks!

  39. Really like the white pair, and they'd go with pretty much any summer dress!
    AND YES. I had the magic steps! But then I lost the key and was stuck on the same picture forever. This killed me.
