My shoes I was soooo excited to get came today. I opened the box and I was caught off guard. They looked reallly big and long. But they are a perfect fit. Size 8. The ONLY thing that made me instantly have shoe regret is the picture and the actual shoe and ribbon do not look anything alike. The ribbon is way too long and was all crinkled. I didn’t think I would have to wrap it twice around my ankles. I thought once like in the pic from the website and it would lay nicely. Nope, not the case at all. The ribbon is stiff and just does not match the shoes. All crimped and wrinkled in the back. I can easily find another ribbon,probably a satin one. Not whatever this material is.
What do you think? Bridal or no? I feel for $43 plus shipping I was getting more…

they’re cute!! You have them tied on the ankle different to the last pic from the website. Maybe thats why you feel the ribbon isnt laying right

What about ironing them and cutting them shorter?

Could you maybe iron the ribbon on a low setting to get it smoothed out? Or you could maybe go to a dance store and see if they may have some ribbon that you could buy that they use on their ballet shoes?

If they are made of satin (the ribbon) DONT iron them, that could cause them to melt. I would try to steam them. I think they are cute, but look really ballet-ish to me (former ballerina) so I wouldn’t have a desire to wear them. BUT with that said, if they are comfy and you like them, I think they’re keepers!

Yeah the ribbon needs a trim. It’s not satin. I found a pair of icy blue glitter pumps on here so I will wear these for the reception. This bee that makes them is very fast at responding ive been emailing her for a while and totally forgot she had these blue peep toes they’re awesome!! So i will change after the ceremony 🙂 I’ll go to a dance store just to see what they have as far as ribbon. I could not get them to look like the picture at all.
