Gorgeous but not for mobile wear.
on April 16, 2013
These pumps are beautiful: the color is the perfect shade of medium blue; great detailing; soft leather; a touch of unique character. That said, they are IMPOSSIBLE to walk in, in fact you cannot even stand wearing then without feeling the pain and tension caused by the unfortunate shape of the arch. Because they are so pretty and I so wanted to keep them, I thought maybe the issue was with me and I just had to re-train my legs after wearing comfortable boots for most of the winter; however, when I put on my other shoes of equal heel and platform height, the difference was that of night and day: I wasn't super comfortable, but I COULD stand and walk! It is these pumps, not me. They just do not seem to be made for use that involves touching the ground. I suppose they would be great for occasions which involve only sitting and dangling your beautiful footwear in the air.
