Valentino Couture Bow d'Orsay Pump
Gorgeous Shoe, but the Sizing is AWFUL
I've been eyeing these shoes for over a year now and my husband finally treated me to them for my birthday. I've never been so disappointed. I wear a 5 and ordered the 35. They were so big I was literally walking out of them. Toe pads and heel pads weren't enough to keep the shoes on my feet. Nordstrom even indicates on the product page "Runs narrow, order 1/2 size up." Give me a break. Do NOT order a half size up. I ordered my true size and learned that these shoes run at least a full size too big (my feet are even considered wide). I've been told the smallest this shoe comes in is a 34 but that Nordstrom RARELY and BARELY gets any in this size. So I had to return the shoes and now I'm on a wait list hoping they get a 34 sometime this year. The shoe is gorgeous. I would give it 5 stars if the sizing weren't so terribly off.
Love the shoes!
I love the shoes, but I have to give it 4 stars because they didn't come in the red Valentino duster. My husband bought me these originally and they came in a nice duster. I had to exchange them for a different size and they sent them without the duster. For the price, they should come with the duster!
Nice Look, Nice Desiger, no Comfort
I love nice designer fashion, however I have learned that comfort is more important to me than look. Nice look, nice shoe for quick ware... not for wedding!
why buy shoes when you can buy Valentino's?
I adore these shoes. So classic and sexy. I have them in black because despite loving the other colors, I'm too sensible. I had to get a half size up AND even they they were too tight. I took them back after trying to make them work like a hundred times to return them when I learned that they can stretch them.
I haven't worn them out yet as I got had them stretched tonight. But that really made a difference and I ended up not returning them after all.
