I know you all have waited a while for this blog to pop up, and here it is! This pair was kindly gifted for my birthday, and I was in desperate need for some decent black sandals! I hope these don’t let me down…
This is (in essence) the 2nd part to a review I did of the Victoria’s Secret Light Shaping Tights.

Getting Them On: these heels are super easy to get on. As they have that ‘barely there’ look to them, it’s super easy to slip your feet into them. I will say wearing hosiery does make them slightly loose under my foot. I tried these when I was barefoot, and they fit me perfectly and my foot was not sliding everywhere.
On The Feet: so I mentioned that wearing hosiery does make it a little hard as my feet slip a little in them. They have a smooth insole to them, which doesn’t work well with smooth hosiery. Wearing these barefoot, I have no issue in them.
The heel height is high, however they are easy to walk in if you’re used to this height. There is no platform at the front however your foot isn’t arched too high up so it is bearable to be in them for a long period of time.
The fit of these are true to size; I felt these were slipping a little with hosiery on, but with bare feet these fit me perfectly fine. I had no issues with them at all. I will say these are not made for wide feet, so if you require this – these may not be the pair for you. You also have ankle support around the back of the heel, which I know is a biggie for some people.
The feel of them are lovely; they are faux suede so you will need to use a protector on them to keep them looking pristine and nice. They also can damage easily (I have plenty of pairs like this to know), so you will need to be careful in them so they don’t scuff.
I do also love that stiletto heel; it wouldn’t have the same appeal if it was a block or kitten heel. It really works with the pointed front of the sandals. And speaking of that point – I love them! I thought they looked super classy and was different from a standard rounded pair.
The buckle strap around the ankle is adjustable, and is a normal buckle too. I have had some where it’s a clasp on and it was super weird. These are the normal ones and they can also move so you can sit the buckle wherever you like! I sat mine a little further to the back as I prefer it like that.
I really liked this pair and they were super comfortable to be in for dinner. I walked around everywhere in them and they did not hurt or make my feet ache. I love that point on them and that they are decent quality too. I would happily recommend these!
