It wasn’t love at first sight with this shoe, but I kept seeing it around and finally tried it on. It was a sexy pair of shoes but I kept debating on whether or not I really needed another pair of heels. The first time I tried it, I tried a 7.5 at one Nine West location in Scarborough. It fit a bit loose (even with my thick tights) around the ankle and I had the buckle on at the tightest. I decided to wait another few days before I considered buying the shoe to ensure it wasn’t my impulsive shopping kicking in. Well, it was a Friday and I was relaxing after work by window shopping and I had to try it again (this time I was tights-free). The friendly sales person couldn’t find a 7.5 (apparently this shoe is flying off their shelves) but suggested I try the size 7 because apparently Nine West tends to design the shoe 1/2 size larger than most. I perused the web via my iPhone and saw many postings on Nine West shoes being a bit larger. I gave it ago and I had to have it! So now I’m drooling over my new pumps!
I absolutely adore these heels. However, warning to those with wider feet (me included). The front of the shoe is very narrow, so you’ll see and feel a bit of spillover when you have the shoe on. I mentioned this to the sales person and she noted that yes, the shoe’s front is designed a bit narrow and I will spill over a bit but that it was just the way shoe was designed. Since I won’t be running any marathons with these shoes, I was happy just to have them for special occasions and work. The damage? About CAN$147 (with taxes included).
