LOVE! Are those the "New Show Girl" Model. I am planning to get those for my next pair in the bright yellow and gold. Every time I see them I think they look so cheerful.

Thanks :)

They are actually the "La Coquette." The "New Show Girl" has a lower heel and laces, not a buckle. They are pretty spiffy looking as well. I chose the "La Coquette" because I wanted a buckle.

I was very worried that they wouldn't fit. I went through some turmoil picking the size. Ended up getting the 6 1/4. Side note, I showed them to my boss and she was like "you have tiny feet."

Like any pair of character heels they will take some time to get used to. The day I taught tap for thirty minutes then ballet for an hour then tap for thirty minutes they were fine. They day I taught for two hours but ended up wearing them for three, it started to hurt. But, after a while I am sure they will be just fine. It's just a part of wearing heels.

I still love them. They are much sturdier than other character shoes I've worn. I haven't gotten to tap as much as I would have liked to this past year (hopefully that will change soon!) - but I still love them.

The only wonky thing is how the strap to the buckle rubs on my foot.
