Visually, I love these shoes. They are completely badass, and all of my friends love them. The only downside is, the first time I wore them (for a measly hour and a half of errand running), I got a blister over the entire back of my heel so bad I was unable to walk without limping for the rest of the day and the entire next day. Three days later and I am still stuck wearing flip flops as shoes are just too uncomfortable. Holy moly. My feet are no stranger to blisters-- I almost exclusively wear Doc Martens and other shoes that require breaking in... but this was RIDICULOUS. I even used this blister preventing stick thing that works for some pairs of sneakers, but it was no match for these.
I am not giving up, because I have fallen in love and beauty is pain. And I know that Doc Martens are worth the torture once they get broken in. But I have invested in some heel pads and other items that will hopefully make my next experience with these shoes a little smoother. But if you choose get these (and I hope you do because they are beautiful), PLEASE take extreme precautions to ensure some semblance of comfort.
