Ever lusted after a pair of designer shoes, whether it be Jimmy Choo, Dior, Gucci or Christian Louboutin, and always stopped short of purchasing due to the price tag? Well fear not as today ladies I bring you Cinderella Me.
Cinderella Me is the UK’s first designer shoe hire website that allows fashion focused females to wear the likes of Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin and Gucci at a special occasion, wedding, party, interview or event and still have money to pay the rent and eat for the rest of the month! For a monthly fee of £9.95 plus whatever the cost of that particular shoe, you can hire a pair of designer shoes for a week, and then return after use. It's that simple!
When I first heard about this company and the idea behind it, I did think ''Hmm cool idea'', because if you're like me currently clobbering together the pennies to own a pair of designer shoes, having this service at the click of a few buttons sounds like a great service (sparing you a good few hundred quid).

Now although I do find this to be quite a good idea, my mind instantly heads towards the hygiene department! I am quite picky when it comes to shoes, and no matter how well I know the person, I will not let people borrow my shoes. Anyway I digress, but Cinderella Me claim that all shoes are only ever hired out 8 times to ensure all shoes remain fabulous and in good quality, and undergo a thorough cleaning process to ensure no 'germs' are left harbouring in the shoes. After reading about the cleaning process and etc, I still am not so sure I want to be tottering around in shoes worn by 'x' amount of people, no matter how thorough the cleaning process is. However the most appealing thing with this service is the low cost of fee of hiring high end shoes, right? . . .
Simple. Affordable. Hygienic. Secure
Cinderella Me claim to be affordable, saving you hundreds of pounds by simply hiring your favourite designer shoes. However in order to take advantage of this service you have to become a member, paying a monthly fee of £9.95. If you then wish to hire a pair of shoes for a week, you are then subjected to paying that set fee for those particular shoes; for example Christian Louboutin 'Pigalle 100' will set you back £59.95 for the week, Jimmy Choo 'Axia' £44.95 for the week. Yes, it is pretty cheap to 'sport' around a fab pair of designer shoes for a week, but the £9.95 member fee? I can't help feel that it's a little bit of a catch, because what if you don't want to purchase a pair of designer shoes next month? You still have to pay the £9.95 which is potentially wasted money.
Cinderella Me aim to offer a great service providing women with the option of hiring designer shoes for a set weekly fee. Although in order to take advantage of this service you must first become a member and pay the monthly fee of £9.95. The overall concept I do like, and find it very cost effective if you simply don't want to splurge out on a pair of designer shoes. However if you're hygiene OCD (like oneself), and don't fancy wearing shoes worn by 'x, y and z', then this service might not be for you.
I think I will continue saving my pennies for my own designer shoes . . at least I won't have to give them back at the end of a week!
What do you think? Will you be hiring designer shoes or will you just save and purchase your own shoes?? Would love to hear what you have to say.
