I bought the shoes for a 50s themed photo-shoot and they were very cute and exactly what I was looking for but they were very small! I had to send them back and exchange them for a different shoe entirely.
I ordered these for a Wicked/Oz themed social event and was very happy with the choice. I wore the RED pair with black & white striped tights and a cute black dress and got compliments all evening. They are high, but the platform takes off some of the stress. I normally wear 7.5-8.0, and the size 8.0 was perfect with the tights (with thinner pantyhose, would have added a cushion toe insert and would have been fine). I like that they have a wider toe box. Walked and danced in them for several hours and made it through the evening, though my feet definitely felt it that night and the next day. But it was worth it! Note: These are not an every-day shoe ... glitter would wear off over time. But perfectly fine for special occasions. Will look for an opportunity to wear them again.
I very much appreciate the design and elegant look of this dress shoe. The shape of the heel and the T strap are exactly what I was looking for. The down side is that the shoes arrive well wrapped in tissue and plastic bags in their box, but when unwrapped, they have an awful odor which I am hoping a good airing out will eventually dissipate. The shoes were made in China, and I have noticed this unpleasant odor emanating from other items that are imported from China. It smells like some sort of fumigant and I suspect that the chemicals are probably noxious if not downright toxic. In addition to the unpleasant odor, there was a smudge on the outside heel of one of the shoes. It isn't worth the time and effort to return the shoes when a bit of cleaning fluid will take care of the problem. It's a good thing that the shoes are black!
