1. I wanted to avoid patent leather (at that time)
2. I would like lower heel
My typical size is 6.5 to 7, and it seems my feet are a bit wide. I did have hallux valgus problem ten years ago.
Heel height -2 1/2 in. Material -Leather Size -6.5 Color -Black
What I did like
The overall look was beautiful. You can see they are well made. The leather was smooth and not thin, which I like. The heel height was not too low not too high, good height for someone who are not used to be in heels for long time. The material is stiff.
What I didn't like
The toe shape. They are a part of perfect pumps, yet kitten heel do not have round toe but more pointy. This toe shape caused problems to my toe- pinching like crazy as soon as I put them on. Maybe too small? As I mentioned the material is stiff, which I usually like, but not when they don't fit me well. It'll take a while to break in. I was not sure about the toe shape after breaking in. It is possible they mold weird shape caused by my ill-fitted toe.
Return. Even though I loved the idea of this shoe, but I didn't think I can wait until the leather would be soften and my toe wouldn't be pinched. I would not have loved that toe shape.
