Okay… so I’m probably overanalyzing (per usual) but I just realized my shoes have a flaw. The satin fabric on the left shoe is not flush with the bottom of the sole. It looks “puckered” — the same thing is on the side of the shoe.
I got them on 6pm.com, and sent them the photos. They saw the issue and agreed, but unfortunately, they don’t have the shoe in stock anymore in my size (I ordered them Tuesday, got them Friday, and they have already sold out. UGH)
So… how noticable is it to you? I seriously feel like I’ve been searching high and low forever for a pair of light blue shoes with some bling. It was completely serendipitous when my shoe savy Bridesmaid or Best Man messaged me with these gems.
6pm offered a full refund + shipping costs — or a refund on just the cost of shipping if I want to keep them — but I can’t decide what to do. I was picturing these artistic beautiful up close and personal shots of my shoes on my wedding day (my photog takes some amazing shoe shots lol) — but now I’m bummed.
Am I being a spazz for something that is really not the deep? (Ok, I know I probably am but maybe I just need to hear it) 🙂 xo

You’re not overanalyzing. I responded to your original 4 inch heel post and just told my story and didn’t mention that I loved your shoes because I noticed the imperfection :/ However, I’m sure your photog can just edit it out and most of my shoe pics are not of the front toe anyways.

@mwitter80: =( so, it IS really noticable then. i definitely don’t want anyone to think “wow. those shoes look like garbage” instead of “wow. those shoes are stunning!”
return them and keep searching? =

I love your shoes, imperfection and all! 🙂 I’d keep them.

I think you should return them if they’re flawed. What about getting a blue shoe and adding shoe clips for the bling? That might open up some more choices for you.

Being that the shoe is unavailable, I would keep them if you really, really love them. You could always ask the website if they can give you a steep discount due to the flaw.
It should be really easy for your photographer to Photoshop the images and make them look the same; my dad is a graphic designer and does that kind of stuff all the time. If your dress is a full-length gown, it shouldn’t really matter because there won’t be many photos showing your shoes.

Maybe you can fix it. What I would do is use an exacto to make a tiny slice at the bottom of the pucker, add the teeniest tiniest dab of good glue and push the fabric downward. Once it dries, trim off any overhanging fabric that may be the result of the excess fabric that caused the pucker to begin with. I only suggest this because you love these shoes soooo much, there are no replacements in stock, and you are obviously concerned by the flaw. However, personally, I think it’s no big deal to wear them as is. Nobody at the wedding will likely notice such a small detail and the photographer can definitely edit these if it bothers you so much. I know exactly what you meant when you mentioned the shots of your shoes because a lot of the photographers now do take shots of the shoes on their own in a photojournalism kind of way but editing will be no problem.

I have to say that those shoes look fabulous on your feet! I didn’t notice the pucker until it was pointed out.
If you love them, then consider it a shoe with more character.
Maybe 6pm can offer a shipping refund + credit towards another pair of shoes?

Keep them! Hardly noticable at all (I wouldn’t have noticed until you pointed them out.)

Keep them if you love them. I wouldn’t have noticed and there’s no way any of your guests will notice either.

If they are the shoes you want, I’d keep them and wear them.

@brikee: I asked them if they would give me a partial credit of some sort if I kept them and they said they can only either fully credit or credit shipping. “Their system isn’t equipped” Although one of the supervisors is going to call me back Mon or Tues because he wants to talk to his manager to see what they can do given the circumstances.
thanks bees 🙂 I think I will keep them and just ask my photog to edit them. I seriously have been looking forever for a light blue shoe and just cannot find one. I’d be open to attaching a blingy clip, but it’s the light blue shoe part that is hard (well, and finding one that isn’t hundreds of dollars too)

I wouldnt have noticed if you never pointed it out. More than likely its only noticable up close and if people know its there. As long as you dont plan on putting your shoe in someones face haha I dont think anybody will notice! If these are your dream shoes I say keep them!
