Inside though, it all becomes more familiar. People feverishly digging through boxes upon boxes of shoes to find that magical pair (or two). With prices starting at £50, it’s understandable that crowds are drawn in from all over London, this is my second Rupert Sample Sale, and I have learnt my lesson, so I chanced missing out on the best stuff and dropped in late on the first day. Despite my timing I picked up some amazing deals. I would therefore suggest visiting either before or after the lunchtime rush, for a more peaceful time to do your digging.
The rare and elusive Gold Collection even pops up here, they are extra luxurious versions of his classic line, and are priced accordingly at over £700, and here I only spent £150! These are my second pair from the Gold Collection and will explore these shoes in detail in the future.
So I know that for most people spending £90+ on a pair of shoes is a ridiculous concept, but consider this, we can sometimes spend as much on a night out and let’s face once the booze is drunk all we have to show for it is empty bottles and a hangover. I think I’ll take the shoes thanks.
