These are, hands down, the most comfortable stilettos I have ever owned. Now comfortable for stilettos isn’t the same as comfortable for bunny slippers, but still. These are major.
Dolce & Gabbana fuchsia suede peep toes, perched delicately atop my Hermes Fleurs de l’Opera foulard.
I know, as a photographer I make an excellent fashion writer. What I don’t know is HOW Dolce and Gabbana make these darn things so comfortable.
My feet are just over 4.2″ wide ( the so-called average foot is about 3.6″) and while most shoes I bring home require stretching and a breaking-in period wherein I suffer for my art, I plucked these off the floor at Neiman’s, adjusted the buckle –actually I added another hole in the right one since that foot is wider– popped them on my feet and happily wore them for 6 hours the next day.
Now I know there’s a recession on, and we’re all pinching our pennies, but if you CAN swing it, I really really REALLY suggest picking these up.
These are shoes you’re going to have for the rest of your life.
They’re amazing now, they’ll be amazing when you’re 60. Sexy but not TOO sexy, and classic without being dull. This is investment shopping, and they are on sale. Go get ‘em.
