Beautiful choice for my "something blue!"
Observing that two other reviews had mentioned this ran small and I have rather wide feet (I often specifically seek out brands with "W" sizes), I ordered two pairs - one a half a size up and another a whole size up. Size 8.5 works me in most brands and shoe style; I'm happy to report that the Size 9 end up fitting perfectly, so I returned the other pair to a nearby BHLDN store. I even walked around in the pumps on hardwood floor for thirty minutes to test whether they would result in pinched and painful toes, but I'm happy to report my feet remained intact and unscathed!
These shoes are seemingly rather well made and evidently, under conditions compliant with the green initiative. The bows aren't nearly as seamless as they are in the site photos, but still rather pretty. I should mention that the bottom soles are leather and will scuff up on hard surfaces and random floor/ground debris will easily adheres to the leather material. I wiped mine with a damp paper towel after testing them out and the soles are now unevenly colored, which of course doesn't affect the salient aesthetics or functionality of the shoes. Just something to bear in mind if you wish to have wedding photos highlighting the bottom of these heels as there is an adorable blue rhinestone embedded in the arch of the sole.
These shoes are currently on sale on $80, which is an incredible price for quality Italian-made wedding shoes. Highly recommend!

These are beautiful shoes and really well built. Surprisingly comfortable. I took the advise of the one review and went a half size up. Good call. They were perfect!! Can't wait to wear them.

Gorgeous shoes but they definitely run small!
I purchased these beautiful shoes is in the pale blue Cinderella colour. They are leather lined with leather soles. The blue crystal on the sole under the heel is a cute touch too.
These shoes definitely run slightly smaller than my regular size. Also they are a narrow fit. It is difficult to see in the pictures on the website but there is a built up platform inside the shoe at the front. This makes it a rather tight space for your foot to fit into. I am returning mine and I've ordered a pair half a size bigger.
I'm pretty disappointed with the amount I've had to spend on postage for these shoes (almost $150). But they are so gorgeous!!! If only they weren't so narrow/small...
