Â by GeoInCalifornia Shiny, Sunny, Flexible & TTS!
I was disappointed that the Yuzu Mary-Janes by Schuler and Sons ran narrow. So I ordered these on the spot when they appeared online.
SIZE: I ordered my normal size 8. My foot runs wide across the front, and is narrow through the arch and heel. I was worried these would make my foot appear wide like on the model in the July catalog. They DO NOT! Although I imagine they could if your foot is wide across the arch.
FIT: These are TTS, with just a bit of space behind my heel. The platform wedge is easily negotiable if you are used to heels. My first thought wasâ€¦ over kill with the tiny fussy buckles. But low and behold, I can slip these off without unbuckling. Then unbuckle the top strap to put them on. All six straps are on the tightest hole over my narrow arch. There is plenty of room for play in the straps.
The best part isâ€¦these are completely flexible to walk in. An absolute JOY!
The only negative isâ€¦ my painted toe nails rub against the front and create a little squeak. LOL!
CONSTRUCTION: Top notch details: anti-slip sole, lining is well padded, buckles are equipped with elastic for comfort. The leather is soft and shiny, with a rich mottled yellow appearance. I found not a single defect in my pair, unlike the Yuzuâ€™s.
Iâ€™m blond with pale coloring. The color does not wash out my feet. However, Iâ€™m not sure this color is for everyone.
My Take Action Dress has a new Soul Mate. Highly recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by NYCprofessional Thin black suede
Most of the reviews here are for the patent leather yellow version of this that I somehow missed. This review is for the black suede version shown in the picture and which I ordered (and returned).
The shoes look cute online, but in person they're really clunky. The toe-box looked really huge on these, and wound up being quite unattractive on me. In addition, the material was thin and flimsy, which made these feel as if they were a far lesser quality than I'd expect for the price.
Maybe a different color would work. I really need a pair of cute black pumps, but these weren't it. They went back.

I have a slightly wide foot and Miss Albright shoes have never been a good fit for me. Never enough room in the toebox or too narrow. I loved the look of these, and didn't hold out much hope with these fitting me either. I am normally between a size 8 and 8.5 depending on fit of shoe, and my store apparently didn't have any half sizes, so I tried on the 8. It fit perfectly! These shoes are true to size, and I would recommend sticking to your 'smaller' size, since in the 8, I still had plenty of room. The toebox is wide, so great for us with wide feet, and the color is gorgeous. I am normally used to wearing at least 4 inch heels, so these shoes felt very low to me, but very comfortable and a good height for wearing all day. The one slight negative were the straps. Luckily they can be adjusted, because they will dig in to you, if you have a high instep.
