L.K. Bennett 'Maddox' Wedge Pump
This is one of the most beautiful shoes I have ever purchased. I wear an 8.5 but bought an 8 because the 8.5 was too large. I thought the 8 would eventually stretch a little. It never did. I ended up taking the shoes back. And, the shoe is quite high. I looked great but was never comfortable.
Gorgeous wedge. Classic, timeless style.
Begs to be worn. Purchased in black and would easily have purchased in the beige/nude color too. Will go with everything and I know I'll get lots of wear out of them. Nicely made and should hold up well too. Know that the fit works, and for the most part is shaped well to cradle your feet, but is a bit off. I am a true 9.5 and the 40 is a tad too long, but not enough that my feet slip out when walking, and a tad too narrow (on the outside edge of one shoe). Also, I have high arches and will need to add arch support to make the fit comfortable for all day wear. They are lightweight, easy to walk in, and oh-so-pretty, but will have to break them in and adjust them a little so they fit well and can handle for prolonged wear. Worth the cost for the quality and versatility, they'll last, and look great, for a long time.
These are my second pair of LK Bennett. My first pair were a pair of black flats and they were so comfortable! I was looking for a pair of basic black heels and wanted to try these since Kate Middleton has a similiar pair and wears them all the time. They are beautiful IRL, but a little stiff since it's patent leather. Sure they will soften with wear. Get them while you can!
I'm so fortunate that you had these VERY popular shoes in my size. I ordered a half a size up based on the reviews, and they fit just great. In truth, i might have ordered my "TRUE" size if they had been in stock, but it was either go slightly larger or be out of luck, so i took a chance. I'm *slightly* nervous about these shoes stretching out as i wear them and subsequently getting too large - that has a tendency to happen especially with slip on wedges, but i'm sure i can address it with a heel grip insert thing if it does eventuate.
With regard to these shoes, i LOVE them!! They are gorgeous, the color is perfect and the heel is awesome. they are comfy (very mushy inside) and i cannot wait to wear them (if only it would stop raining!!!!). i look forward to wearing these shoes all.of. the. time since they are so neutral they will go with everything that i own. Love the heel - it's high enough so it doesn't feel school marmish, but not so high that i feel like an overaged Lady Gaga tempting an ankle sprain.
