|Black Quilted Ballerinas – Next
Charming Nude Ballerina – Russell & Bromley
- Both shoes are leather and leather lined.
- Both have double stitched quilting.
- Both have flexible rubber soles.
- The only visible difference is the gold tag.
- The Next ones are £40, R&B ones are £155
Now before you state the obvious that one is black and one is nude, the point here is more about the fact that the look so similar on every other way. The R&B ones are available in black but the Next ones are not available in nude. If you are looking for less expensive nude ones, Claire found a different pair in Next at only £26..not as comparable to the R&B ones but not bad nonetheless.

Claire’s Spend vs Splurge Conclusion…….’if you can afford the R and B then great but I
struggle to see any difference between them and the Next ones…yes, time may tell….the leather must be a better quality. Here’s hoping it’s at least £100 better!’
So, over to you…do you think it’s worth paying for quality? Or would you rather have two or three less expensive things instead?
UPDATE: (3 weeks on) Claire admits to me that the Next ones are cutting her feet still but the R&B ones are like slippers…
