Rated 4 out of 5 by melinga OMG SO CUTE but OMG OW.
so, i had to have these shoes. like HAD TO. i just received my third pair yesterday because i was determined to find ones that fit (yep, paid shipping each time, ugh!). i've been wearing these around the carpeted parts of my house because i just can't decide what to do. these things hurt. but cute stars! but pain!
basically, these cute star shoes are making me see stars. not the good kind. the shoe is so molded that there is absolutely no give. it doesn't bend or move with your foot. you just strap 'em on and pay attention, girl. they seem to have a small hidden platform up front and a high, thick and angled heel (as you see in the pics). a lovely silhouette, however, they put your foot at an unnatural angle and walking in them feels a bit, well, off. clompy. one wrong move and ankle-twisting time.
if you look closely, you'll see there is a white border that goes around the straps as well as the place where your heel meets the shoe on the footbed. that border is a constant reminder that these shoes do not give a smidge.
about the size: i'd say they are true-to-size, if not a bit big. i tend to be between an 8 and 8.5 and the 8 is the best of the bunch. now, do i keep these silly, adorable, impractical, starry-starry pair? at $168, i faltered. at $79, i am almost convinced. it's better to look good than to walk comfortably, right? ;)

I got these in the red in my usual size 9/40. When they arrived, they were way to big. I should have went with the size 39. I also did not like the texture of the materail on the shoes. They just looked cheap to me and I sent them back. They were not worth searching for a size 39 in another store and having to call 20 different stores.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BKMAZ Hopeful-- They're so cute
I wear between 8 and 8.5 and ordered the 39. Instantly could tell they were a little too big to walk and keep on my foot, but they're absolutely adorable. Just ordered the 38's and have my fingers crosed they fit. I clomped around on the carpet in the 39's but didn't notice the problem the other reviewer had with them being too stiff.
