Poor Strap Quality
The shoes are gorgeous in person. I was so excited when they arrived. However, as I unbuckled them to try them on, I noticed the straps are incredibly frail. These are not durable, quality shoes. They are antique in the sense that they actually seem 60+ years old. The leather on one was already cracked at the point where it was buckled and nearly broken in half. The other strap's hole was very stretched out where it had been buckled. Seeing as this is the part that actually keeps the shoes on your feet, this is a major problem. I was very disappointed. I may try exchanging for another pair to see if my pair was just a fluke, but if the second pair is similar I'm looking elsewhere for my wedding shoes. This is not the quality that I expect for this price in shoes. Very disappointed.
