adorable and well made
after having some fit issues with the ballet shoes (size 41 not even close to fitting), I ordered these w/some trepidations and they fit beautifully, true to size, esp. in the toe box. and, as others have said, the little puff comes a bit mashed but unfolded w/a little spritz of water and cornstarch. I dried them w/a hair dryer and sprayed the shoes w/scotchguard because girls, we know how fast the ivory shoes get dinged up. I love the delicate color and the softness of the leather. they fit immediately, as is often the case w/italian-made shoes, and the sale price of $80 was excellent. so, although my heart was broken re: the ballet shoes, with these shoes it is now on the mend.

The perfect shoe!
I was nervous about ordering these for a few reasons. Fist because the other reviews said that the shoes ran a half size big but they were not available in a half size smaller. Second the description says that the shoe has a 3" heel and I didn't want to end up towering over my groom. However I shouldn't have worries at all. They fit perfectly and the heel is much shorter than I expected. The are so fun and comfortable. I am not worried about dancing the night away. I also can't wait to pair them with some fun skirts on my honeymoon. They are such lovely shoes I am going to show them off.

These shoes were everything I was looking for to complete my bridal look. They are fun ad girly and really well made. They are comfy and fit exactly like they should. I was nervous because I saw the other reviews saying they run large, but I ordered my normal size anyways and they fit perfect :)

These shoes are exactly what I was looking for; I'm so glad they exist! They're so fun and go perfectly with the tulle skirt on my wedding gown. Plus, I got them when they were an additional 40% off for $50! Probably the best deal I've ever gotten. As for fit, I'm usually an 8.5 but I went with an 8 based on another review. I'm glad I did because I think the 8.5 would've slipped off when I walked- the 8 is a little snug but feels secure rather than too tight. They're a little narrow across the top but will be fine once I break them in- or I might take them to a shoemaker to get them stretched a bit. The heel is the perfect height since my fiance isn't too much taller than me. One thing to note: when I opened the the box, one of the tulle puffs was a bit crushed and I thought I'd have to exchange them, but I just laid the shoes upside down with the puff flattened and it held its shape perfectly afterwards. Can't wait to wear these in May; thanks BHLDN!
