Not really the quality I thought I'd get from Nine West
on March 29, 2012
I purchased these pumps in black. I typically buy cheap, quickly replaceable basic shoes like black or brown pumps because I wear them so much and tend to wear out the soles and heel taps. However, this time I decided, actually because of wearing them so much, that I'd spend the money for a nicer pair of shoes that would hopefully last me longer than the cheap ones I usually get.
The first issue I had was with them running big; I bought an 8, which is my typical size, but had to return them for a 7.5. The return process with Amazon went fine; it was an efficient and relatively quick process.
Once I got the shoes that fit, I loved the style and look. However, I was disappointed to find that by my second wearing the finish on the toe, stem, and back of the pump were already starting to chip off. The inside lining of the left shoe also sticks out over the top lip of the shoe. It's probably not noticeable to anyone other than me, but since I see it every time I look down at my foot, I notice it a lot. I guess I expected more from shoes that cost 2.5 times what I usually spend. I'm certain there are probably black heels that cost more than the $55 I spent for these; I guess I'm disappointed to find that I either need to go spend that extra or stay with my cheapies.....as this Nine West pair is proving to wear the exact same way as much cheaper shoes.
