I purchased these shoes for a black tie ball, the shoes were exactly as you see them in the photograph. They are absolutely STUNNING. I have since warn them with just a pair of navy blue fitted pants and received many comments.
The shoes are very tall but very comfortable for the height, they fit really well and I just love them.
My 12 year old daughter can't wait to be able to wear them.

The shoes look exactly like the picture. They are pretty comfy for the height. The fabric is soft and not scratchy. The fit is slightly larger than a regular size 5, but it might work better for me since I have to walk and dance on them for a few hours during the wedding and reception.

Gorgeous! semi comfortable
These shoes were fantastic looking!
The bow is very proportionally sized and held up well in shipping. The mesh body of the shoe is beautiful. It's not so transparent that the silver color gets lost. Very feminine and classic. People came over to take pictures of just my shoes they loved them so much
I ordered two sizes because I didn't have time to get the wrong size and reorder. I'm a pretty typical size 7, but occasionally I need to go up a half size. I had a hard time choosing between the two because the toe box of the 7 was slightly less comfortable than the 7.5, but the 7.5 was much too wide.
I ended up settling on the 7. I made a good choice, because these were easy to walk in and I didn't feel cramped at all. However, the fabric these shoes are made of has a tendency to rub. It is instantly apparent when I tried them on that they could be very uncomfortable, especially over the toe area. I avoided this (and wore them for hours and hours without pain or blister aftermath) by wearing several bandaids and gel blister pads on each foot.
I don't think it compromised the beauty of the shoes, because I got many many compliments, but it wasn't ideal.
They are very solidly made shoes, and I thought they were worth the price because they are so attractive and versatile. If you're willing to prepare your feet to wear them, then I think they are a great addition to any closet!
