Gucci 'New Hollywood' Pump
A new twist on the classic Hollywood pump
Higher than the classic Hollywood platform (which has a 3.5" heel) these are surprisingly comfortable. I usually don't go higher than 3.5" because I can't reliably walk in them, even when a platform accounts for one of those inches but these are pitched perfectly making them easy to wear. With jeans, they make my stumpy legs go on forever!
I usually wear a 40.5 in Manolos, a 40 or 40.5 in Choos and it's potluck in Louboutins but these fit me perfectly in a 39.5 so I would recommend sizing down. I did try the 40 but my heels kept slipping out, assuring a future face plant at an inconvenient moment.
Thanks to Cesar at the Fashion Valley store, who helped me with these and the new Choo Agnes snakeskin pumps.
