Since my school days, I’ve been well known for my love of shoes. One of my best friends likes to tell people about the time that our school rewrote the uniformrules to stop me from wearing my fabulous red clogs with my uniform (well they hadn’t specified that school shoes had to be black...)

My first pair of Irregular Choice were quite ‘normal.’ I came across them in TK Maxx, a mid heel with an upturned toe, like witches shoes. I loved them! I remember being on a hen do in Leeds and buying the black and white striped Can Can boots and soon after that, I went to the Carnaby Street shop for the first time. I don’t think I ever stopped from there!

I wear a lot of my shoes to work and they are a great way to meet people. I work in a large organisation and the number of people I’ve met, simply by chatting about which shoes I am wearing, is brilliant! They are a great conversation starter and always put a smile on people’s faces. I have made some fantastic friends through Irregular Choice. A particular highlight for me was the recent Star Wars launch, seeing the culmination of years of hard work for the Irregular Choice team pay off, being there to experience the excitement on the day and of course, the chance to buy some amazing shoes (even my husband was excited about the Star Wars shoes!).

I love the versatility of Irregular Choice; there is a pair of shoes for every occasion, a pair to suit every mood. I love the fact that they push the boundaries, and that every single time I think I’ve seen it all, that Irregular Choice can’t possibly do something else, they go one better. I love the fact that they’re not to everyone’s taste, as actually that’s what being irregular is all about.
