UPDATE 10/15/12: After wearing these shoes a few more times, I have concluded that they are super painful and uncomfortable – so much so that I cannot wear them again EVER. I work in an office all day and I don’t even need to walk much but couldn’t stand these mary janes even at work… that is telling. I consigned them so maybe someone else can get wear out of them.
Remember yesterday when I blogged about these amazing Mary Jane platform heels from Forever21? Well they came in today! WHOO!
The verdict? HOTNESS!
Style: I am a huge fan of mary jane shoes and I’m loving the platform and the awesome chunky heel! I am an even bigger (well maybe not) fan of patent leather. SCORE! [These also kind of remind me of the Shoedazzle Ruthie, which I ordered and sent back because 1) they weren’t really the right size, 2) they were extremely damaged 3) I didn’t end up liking the style in person.] 5/5.
Fit: I ordered the 9 while I usually wear a 9 or 9.5. The 9 fits OK, it would have been nice to have a little more wiggle room but I’m hoping these babies stretch even just a little. I do have a wide foot and so there is a little bit of bunching on the sides, but that’s expected unfortunately. The ball on my foot is slightly uncomfortable but it’s not to bad. Definitely walkable! 3.5/5.
Color: I really love the burgundy color of these shoes. Perfection! 5/5.
Quality: Hard to tell at this point as I’ve only been sporting these mary janes around the office but I think for the price… can’t complain! The patent leather has a few small scuffs but nothing to write home about. 4/5.
Price: At under $25, I find the price to be fantastic! 5/5.
Overall: 4.5/5. Even though I haven’t worn these mary jane platforms much, I’d like to wager that these shoes will be a big hit! I just love them!
What do you think of my new mary jane heels?
