Love them, I'm a big fan of Jessica Simpson Shoes... I've never been dissappointed, they're adorable! Very comfortable and true to size... unusual twist on a typical white heel. The "shine" is little beige/gold flakes in the white that overall make it look like a musty eggshell. not a bad color but if you are looking for a super white-white then this isnt your shoe, otherwise... definately!
