These are my dream shoes!
These gold glitter heels are a dream come true!!! I have worn them to every social event this year and have had more compliments on them than I can count! I added a pad to the front for extra comfort...now I can stand for hours in them without any discomfort! My new favorite pumps!!!

poorly constructed and will fall apart on second wearing
I bought these shoes for my wedding a year ago because I adored the look of the shoe, thought they fit well, and that I would be able to wear them for most of the night. I also thought they would be a fun pair to wear again from time to time at formal occasions. I wore them for my wedding and they worked great. Last weekend, I wore them for the SECOND time to a formal event and halfway through the night the heel of one of the shoes snapped off when I was doing nothing more than walking across the room. For $300, I would think these shoes could be worn more than once! If you are going to invest in expensive shoes for your wedding, my suggestion is that you go with a more reputable brand where you know you will get better quality construction. I would hate for your heel to snap off during your wedding like it snapped off of my shoe last Saturday!

Beautiful, Worth It
I loved these as an idea for a wedding shoe. I almost went with a different brand (as $300 seems a little steep), but the italian craftsmanship and little blue stone on the bottom put me over the top. I have a gold engagement ring with a hidden sapphire on the interior of the band, so the fact that they were reminiscent of my ring made me sentimental.
The quality really is very good, and they are beautiful. As other reviewers have said, they're more of a silver/champagne color at first glance. I have a silk wedding dress, and they do stick a little to the slip, but it shouldn't be enough to cause any problems.
As for sizing: I have very short, fat feet (length wise I'm 5.5, width wise I'm 6.5). I usually fit into 6's perfectly, and I ordered a 6. They fit me very well. Both the length and width were perfect, very comfortable. I'm guessing that the reason that some reviewers are finding the shoes run small is because they have thinner feet than I do. So, if you have pudgy feet like me, I'd say definitely go with your normal size.

These are gorgeous. Definitely keeping them, although I don't plan on wearing them at my wedding (I already have wedding shoes). Runs a half size large (I am a standard 7.5 in almost all shoe brands, and for this pair, the 7 fit perfectly). Highly recommended!
