L.K. Bennett 'Sledge' Pump
Winter rose is just a delicious color, it's so beautiful! But the shoes turned out a complete disappointment - they seriously feel like made of wood, so stiff and cluncky. Really surprised how the dutchess wears them all the time. Back to the store.
I waited a long while to purchase these.. I have 3 other pair of LK Bennett shoes.. all 39's.. I purchased these as well in 39, but should have gone up half size. These with the platform do not fit like the flats or the Maddox. I loved them, the color was lovely but returned them for size. Will order again :)
Kate Middleton can't be wrong!
and she isn't. These are now my go to shoes (in Taupe) for dressing up for business as well as casual with jeans. I normally wear a size 9 1/2 to 10 and purchased size 41 and these fit great. Very comfortable, classic yet sexy heels.
Gorgeous and Reasonably Comfortable
I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with this shoe. I thought the hype was going to be undeserved, but I'm glad to say that I was wrong. They're beautiful shoes and surprisingly comfortable for their height. I'm used to wearing high, high heels (3.5"+) and there are few that you can wear all day long without problems -- these are one of them. They're the perfect work shoes -- classic, beautiful lines, modern heel and style. I completely understand why the Duchess adores them. They're my new go-to staple for work and classic dress-up events.
However, I also followed the advice on sizing and went a size up. I usually wear a 9 in most US shoes and 39 in Italian shoes. I've never ordered UK shoes before, but I went with the 39.5 and they were perfect. And not too narrow either -- for those that found them narrow, I don't agree. I've got a medium, B size foot and I find these a nice fit.
