With the help of some great bees, I think that I may have finally found a pair of shoes that are going to work for me. One problem, the reviews on Zappos are about 50/50 that they fit true to size vs fit a 1/2 size smaller than labeled. So, no biggie, I was just going to order a 7 1/2 and an 8 and send the one that didn’t fit back (LOVE ZAPPOS RETURN POLICY)…anyway, I digress. They are sold out of size 8. So, question of the day. Anyone own a pair of Bouquets Bette? Worn them for your wedding, or any other all day occasion? How did they fit, were they comfy, did you wish you would have gotten them larger and used gel pads, wide/narrow, etc?

Did you order them? How was the fit? They are in my top 2 right now and the other one I’m looking at is said to be a whole size too big.

@BethyD: I ordered them yesterday. Thankfully Zappos must have gotten more in, because they had 8’s. I ordered both the 7 1/2 and the 8 because I have to try them both on. They should be here tomorrow, I will let you know how they feel!

The shoes arrived!!! I am quite pleased with them, the color is exactly as it looked online and the bow is positioned nicely to still allow the peep toe look. I still have to try them on with my dress, but I am hopeful!!
@BethyD: In regard to the fit, the 7 1/2 worked best for me. The 8 slipped off the back of my heel, so I would vote true to size as I normally wear a 7 1/2 in heels (although I wear an 8 in flats). However, I could tell the 8 were a customer return, so not sure if they had already been ‘broken in’. They are fairly comfortable (in the 30 minutes I had them on). Not too high, not too much pressure on the ball of my foot (but a little more than would be comfy all day…although breaking them in might help), toe box is VERY comfy (not pinchy at all), heel isn’t pinchy either. I do think that they are a tad higher than noted on Zappos. Zappos says 3″, and per my measurment I would say closer to 3 1/4″, but they still worked standing next to my 5″11 FI when he had his dress shoes on (I am 5’9″).
A couple of small things, the bow is positioned so that on my feet when walking my big toe grazes it…this may drive me insane, but I was able to bend it up a bit and then it wasn’t doing it anymore. The inside seems a little ‘sticky’ to me…might be a sweaty shoe… I am going to look around for insoles today for both the ball pressure and the stickiness factor, and then try both sizes on again with the insoles in.
