Nice shoes.... although the pleating on tops looks a little crushed. Usually wear a 10.5 but I could barely get the strap over my heel! Toes were squished out the front... not the look I was going for. Will return, would have been a great deal for the sale price but paying for shipping 3 times with the return makes them a deal breaker!

Very Yellow Ivory
These are very well made shoes, with leather soles that won't let you slip. They are very stiff, though, and I felt like I was clomping around in them, since the platforms keep the soles from flexing.
I was surprised by how yellow the satin was, since the wedding industry seems to have so many names for "off-white"; I would call this color "candlelight," since it is clearly not even close to the same ivory as my dress.
The satin was glued down a bit visibly to keep the folds pressed. This is not particularly noticeable, but looks less handmade than the photos indicate.
These are truly beautiful, potentially comfortable shoes that will provide you support all night. If you can successfully wear slingbacks without blisters, and your dress is on the yellow side, these are for you. If not, decide for yourself if it's worth the shipping cost to check.

Much prettier in person! Fit was good I am usually a 6 but ordered a 5 1/2 because I usually have issues with sling backs slipping off. The 1/2 size really helped with this!

Gorgeous, but run 1/2 to a full size too small
I love these Courtney heels, and they will work perfectly with my short ivory dress. However, I always wear a size 8.5, sometimes even 1/2 size smaller, but these are way too tight in the 8.5. I will have to return for a size 9 and hope that the half size up does the trick.
Love the little blue gem screwed into the bottom of the shoe! Very cute and clever to satisfy the "something blue" requirement!
