Nina 'Bessy' Pump
These are beautiful. Fit perfectly. Nice heel height for a family wedding in spring. I think they will be very comfortable for the day long celebration and go beautifully with my Lilac silk shift.
Definitely pros and cons
I purchased the black shoes and they are beautiful. These shoes are definitely pointy and I wondered if I would hate that but they look classy and the arch is very sexily designed. I admired them on my feet while I was sitting down, resting, from standing in them a while. They aren't all that comfortable. The toe is narrow and I have a narrow-B width generally. I was surprised that my toes felt absolutely schmushed in this toe bed. I was aware of every step I took and in the background of my mind while I was standing, I felt my feet aching. Nevertheless, I grinned and bared it while dancing. Much to my amazement, not a single blister after an hour or two of rock and roll dancing!
When the shoes first arrived, and I tried them on, I notice that the heel of one shoe kept slipping off my foot. One of my feet is slightly smaller, by a half size. To rectify the slippage, I got a heel insert which I adhered to the shoe just hours before I went out, and it did the job well. My heel never slipped out again.
The next day, my feet were only a little sore and like I said no blisters.
I ordered this shoe in a half size down from what I normally wear, and they fit perfectly. I bought them to wear for my husband's company party and they were very comfortable the entire evening which is unusual for a dress shoe, which is probably due to the lower height. I danced in them all night and didn't feel the need to take them off. They are a quality shoe in both fabric and style.
Ruined my night
I needed shoes to go with an evening gown and bought these in a pinch. I probably should have walked around more in the store. I knew they weren't super comfortable when I first tried them but thought I could tolerate them and maybe break them in. Boy was I wrong! My feet were tore up by the end of the evening. It's hard to explain what is wrong with the fit. My feet are an 8 medium-not wide, not narrow- and most size 8 shoes fit well. These felt tight in the toes, yet slipped around on my heel enough to leave blisters. Just awkwardly made. I was glad to return them!
