Click below for my review and to see if this is petite feet friendly!I was super nervous to pull the trigger and spend this much money on a pair of pumps but since I have worn my black Aldo pumps into the ground, I figured instead of getting more cheapie ones that kill my feet, why not invest in one that is of high quality and hopefully will not slip!
I am a sucker for packaging and was shocked the box wasn't prettier...yes it's the small things that get me...I love pretty packaging- especially when you are spending this type of money.
But when I opened up the box and saw this:
I was no longer upset about the boring brown box:) I love shoe pouches and the mini extra heel pouch SOLD ME! LOL
Ah...the infamous RED LEATHER SOLES- soooooo gorgeous. And I am a total sucker for anything make in Italy- ever since my 3 week honeymoon there, I love everything Italian!!!
I didn't even want to take the pumps out of the box- they are so pretty but had to make sure they fit!! When I slipped my foot in one of the pumps, it was like HEAVEN.
Here is my review:
FIT/SIZING: For any petite ladies who have trouble finding pumps that don't slip, well I am here to tell you, the size 35 (US size 5) fit perfectly w/no slippage. No need for any added padding or foot petals! I walked around in my house (since they are new- I could). The sizing I would say must run a tiny bit smaller than most 5's because I have never had this luck! Even my Aldo size 5's have some slippage.
QUALITY: Made in Italy...must I say more? The leather is like unlike any of my leather shoes. It's truly unbelievable. I have to say it is my first pair of pumps that is this expensive and this well made.
HEEL HEIGHT: Heel height is 3.5" which is the perfect height. Most of my Aldo pumps are 4" + so this felt very comfortable. I decided on the regular leather vs. the patent ones because of the heel heigh. Patent ones were 4". I think I made a smart decision!
SLIPPAGE?: I can't believe I am going to say this but NO slippage! This alone is worth the money! I am a true size 5 (can't fit into a 4 or 4.5) but have realized not all size 5's are not treated equal so anytime I find a small 5- it's worth any amount!
VERDICT:Keeping, keeping, keeping and want MORE, MORE, MORE! My next mission is to get these in the stone color.....but I may have to refrain and wait just a bit longer!!!
There were so many different styles to choose from:
I ultimately decided on the Simple 100's regular black ones instead of the patent simple 100's for the classic heel and classic leather w/rounded toe. Since I wear pumps for work every single day, I figured this would be a good investment for me (FINALLY). I hope I will have the courage to break these in soon...I am quite nervous- I don't want to ruin them!!! Did I make the right decision going w/the Simple 100's?
