very pretty, don't love the tie
I ordered these for my January wedding to coordinate with my gown, which has some embroidery details that remind me of the filigree look of these heels.
I love the delicate look, the fact that they feel lightweight and secure on my feet, and the beautiful silver color, which is much shinier in real life than the "pearly" look of the photo. I also love that I can smell the real leather, and that they seem to be beautifully made. They fit my feet well and look dainty and elegant. Which is great, because my feet are small, but not exactly perfect.
I don't love two small details, which aren't enough for me to dislike the shoes.
1) the ankle portion may not fit every type of ankle, and on me it sort of buckles a bit in the back (bony ankles, thanks Mom). It's very slight, and hard to describe.
2) And this is the biggest whine - the tie is just a sad little thing, and the bow does not sit well no matter how you tie it. It looks like an afterthought in real life, and because it sits front and center on the ankle it is a noticeable detail. I'm ditching mine and have ordered a vintage silk ribbon to replace it, which will be gorgeous. That is the only reason I removed one star, and again, it's a very easy fix. Just not one that I would like to make after spending $250!
Overall, I'm very happy with these beautiful, unique shoes. I won't have trouble wearing them after the wedding either!
