A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to kill two birds with one stone when I went to check out the new Quill City Mall as well as attend the grand opening of the latest addition to the XES shoe empire.
XES Premium Boutique adds another feather to its cap with this new outlet at Level 4 of the Quill City Mall at Jalan Sultan Ismail in KL.
I’m equally excited about the opening of the Quill City Mall because it is so close to home, houses a sparkly new double-storey H&M as well as a complete AEON Department Store and has enough shopping options to bankrupt me.
The shoes that caught my eye that day were these pretty ballet flats that are available in a trio of ice cream shades – dusty pink, mint green and vanilla beige.
During the launch, I was given this style in the beige and they are so comfortable and soft they feel more like socks on my feet than actual shoes.
I rarely have much luck finding comfortable shoes but I’m completely in love with these ballet flats by XES and feel that I have to purchase this shoe in both the pink and mint green now.
This, girls, is the perfect shoe for travel.
In the past, I’ve hesitated to buy ballet flats because this style seems to pinch my feet but this pair feels perfect. They hug my feet without any discomfort at all and are cute to boot.
In fact, my new XES ballet flats wear like a second skin and are so flexible and comfortable I was able to to wear them to the park for some intense bike-riding and they did not once catch on the pedals or drop off my feet. These are common problems I have when riding with any shoes but sneakers but these are so much prettier than sports shoes, don’t you think?
The fact that they fold neatly in half makes them really impressive and because of this, it’s possible pop them into a plastic bag and toss them into a regular-sized handbag as a pair back-up shoes.
XES produce all their shoes in-house and their full collection includes a wide gamut of styles ranging from the casual to a broad selection of work and dress shoes but at XES it is never only about just women’s shoes.
The XES range caters to the whole family so there are plenty of options for men and children too. In fact, almost half the store is dedicated to men and children’s shoe fashions.
As the case with all XES stores, shoes reign supreme but there is also a dedicated range of the brand’s bags too because shoes and bags are like best friends, right?. Most of us can’t think of great shoes without thinking of a nice bag too.
You can find this latest addition to the XES family at Quill City Mall
(Opposite The Sheraton Hotel, KL)
Opens Daily 10am – 10pm
Alternatively, if you’re out of town, there are more than 80 XES outlets across Malaysia and you can check their official website for exact locations.
