Â by GeoInCalifornia Size down for these Rare, Exceptional Beauties!
I did my research before ordering. I found the Quefa (Anthro used the Chie Mihara name) in Black and Purple elsewhere, with gold or black leather wrapped high heels. Only Anthro has the Quefa in the low heel. Andâ€¦only Anthro has the Quefa with the fabulous gold leather piping across the front.
Iâ€™m reminded of my childhood tap shoes. Shuffle, hop, step, reverse! Thank you so very much.
SIZE: Iâ€™m normally a 38.5 in Chieâ€™s, rarely a 38 or 39. I usually take a US 8. My foot is a bit wide across the front, with low vamp and narrow heel.
FIT: I ordered size 38.5 since the description states TTS. I found them to run Â½ size large. My heel slips out the back. You can see the extra space in the attached photos. Not only is the shoe too large, itâ€™s also difficult to tighten the laces over the brass fittings. Other than that, the fit and quality is exceptional as anticipated.
I re-ordered these in size 38. I have now paid for these beauties twice. I am not one bit sorry. I ordered these on black Friday at 20% off. I was also given 20% off when I re-ordered.
The toe and heel of the shoe are hard. The leather looks like patent, is soft and flexible, but has that shiny film over top that Iâ€™m not wild about. Iâ€™ve had shoes with similar film, and found they scratched easily. I hope that is not the case. I want these to age gracefully, since I plan to be buried in them. LOL!
Extra heel caps, travel bag, cushioned engraved leather liner, and slip resistant sole included as always.

I really love this shoe! I could not wait to order it but it doesn't come in 10 (41)! I have never seen that. Shoes always go up to a size 10! So disappointing.
