Oh dear, it’s been a very long time since my last post. The sad fact is, I moved to a city which didn’t have a great deal of salsa going on, and so all my poor pretty shoes languished in my closet for eight long months… no more! After another (much bigger) move, I am back on the scene, and so of course, it doesn’t take long to get itchy feet for some new purchases! I did manage to acquire a couple of pairs of shoes since we last spoke – I know, pics or it didn’t happen, right?
Now you know I can’t get enough of Volver (see previous post), so of course I love the Soribel shoes. They look amazing on, and are just as comfortable as all the other Volver styles. I ordered a size down from my street shoe size because I know the suede stretches to fit your foot, and I don’t want them to get baggy. Fits great. I also ordered 70mm heels, which sadly didn’t come with the beautiful under-heel detail shown on the higher style. As with all patent leather, the heel is prone to scuffing, but overall these shoes still look and feel as good as the day I bought them.
But it wasn’t all good news.
Supadance 1062 (why can’t they give them cute names?!) were a pair I’d been lusting after for a while. I got them off Ebay, and chanced it because they were a half size over my usual. They are definitely too big, and there are few options to adjust them. They made me feel very unsteady – lots of straps but little support. I felt cockled on the top of a 3″ latin heel. Even if they were a half size smaller I doubt they would feel much more stable. I’m interested to hear from others who have this shoe – if you managed to get the right size, how do they feel? I feel like Supadance might have missed the mark here.
Ok ok, now you. I’m sure you managed to buy plenty of shoes without me. Share your photos and links! We need an update, and we need your reviews. What’s hot at the moment? Balanceo have been getting a lot of traffic on Facebook…Time to show off your purchases and make us all jealous.
As for me, I’ve got a bottle of wine and a credit card, so I’m sure you’ll be hearing from me again soon.
