The shoes arrived today, and “disappointing” is the operative word. I’m a consistent size 9, and I can barely squeeze my toes into these pumps. They’re so uncomfortable that I don’t even think going up a half size–or even a full size–would make a difference.
Clearly, there’s a valid point to buying more expensive shoes than these. Give me the more costly Cole Haans, Stuart Weitzmans, and Donald Pliners any day.
