Little Booteek – Review

Little Booteek are a UK based company selling Gothic and Alternative clothing, shoes and accessories. I’ve bought from them before a few times as their prices tend to be good and they also have a lot of offers on. You can find my previous posts in the reviews section.

Recently they started stocking bat shoe wings, I LOVE shoe wings and bats so I really wanted some. Just by chance I spotted a very special facebook post by them offering you the chance to win a pair but more exciting than that you could get them for free! You just had to pay postage. They often have offers on certain items that you can claim for free and just pay postage on. It was one free pair per order and I was so excited I placed 3 orders. I bought a few other items too as I felt guilty just buying the wings even though it was totally fine to do that. The wings retail on their site at  £7.99, these were free but postage was £3.99 so it was like getting them half price. They come in a choice of pretty colours and there are glitter ones too!!

Other items I bought: pink unicorn ring £1.99, skull spoon £1.99, paw gloves £2.99 and Nightmare Before Christmas t-shirt £4.99. Postage was £3.99 on each order.

The items only took a couple of days to come and were all packed in strong card boxes. Unfortunately the unicorn ring was out of stock but they had refunded the money straight back to my paypal.

Bat Wings:

I really love the bat wings! The bat wings are made from a thin piece of foam with metallic fabric sewn on either side. The glitter ones only have glitter on one side which makes sense so it doesn’t rub on the shoe. They are fairly flexible and soft enough that they shouldn’t rub or damage your shoes. I’m not sure they are worth £7.99 really but they are a novelty item and all the shoe wings I’ve found tend to be that or more so they aren’t overpriced just seems a lot for something to decorate your shoes.

Paw Gloves:

The paw gloves are quite cheaply made. They don’t fit your hand well and lose a lot of fleece bits but they are quite warm and have a lining. £2.99 isn’t too bad but there may be better gloves to buy in that price range.

Skull Spoon:

I’m not sure how well the spoon would wear with regular use but it feels better than I expected it too. It’s quite thick and heavy, I don’t know if the silver coating may chip or tarnish but I bought it for decorative uses so for that it should be fine. It’s totally worth £1.99 though, look how cool it looks!

T-Shirt:

The t-shirt is quite small for a L, it is also fairly short in the body. I don’t think it’s the best quality and I doubt it will wear and wash well but I could be wrong. The website states it should be about £15 RRP which it’s definately not worth, they are selling it at £4.99 which isn’t bad but I’ve had better things for around the same price.

Sum Up:
Overall I can’t fault Little Booteek. They sent the items really fast and they were all well packed and as described. The wings were an amazing deal and the other items I chose were all cheap and so I knew it was a bit of a gamble as to what the quality would be like. I wouldn’t recommend the t-shirt or gloves personally but other people may be quite happy with them, it’s down to personal preference. I will definitely be buying from them again in the future.
