Ooooh that’s so risky to get closed shoes without trying it on, they could be hideously uncomfortable. Can you go find similar shoes to them in a store at least before you order?

I don’t know…I’d do some research on the company. Find out if they’re even an authorized dealer. I’m mainly saying this because Less than $200 for a designer that can run in the thousands smells off to me. Now…if you truly don’t care whether it’s legitimately CL and love the look of them, go ahead and order. But if finding something that isn’t a knock-off is important to you I’d hold off for a moment. 

EDIT: I’ve been told CL runs small in the toe box and some designers (not sure if CL is one of them) recommend you order a half size up. I have a pair of Choos that I needed to order a half size up for the same reason and I am SO glad I did. If you did order and they are truly CLs or replicated just like them I’d almost order a half size up. If they’re too big you can pop some foot petals in there.

I would also double check if these are real. The heel colour seems a little too pink, and I have never seen a pair for less than 300$ even on clearance

ETA, didnt see previous post

@Taeyers:  Don’t get me wrong. There’s always the chance that they are authentic. But if they’re truly authentic they should have been closer to $1000 originally. Not $300-ish originally. There’s just something that seems off to me. But they’re very pretty so if you like them just buy them and hopefully the fit works for you. 🙂 I’m really only mentioning the rest in case authenticity was important to you.

@Taeyers:  I know there was a thread floating around here a while back where a bee was asking whether or not a replica designer shoe was just as comfortable as the real deal because she was interested in not spending a butt load of money. I can’t remember what the consensus was…maybe you’ll have better luck finding the thread. Again, I don’t have CLs but the Choos I bought are FAR more comfortable and the workmanship is far better than any other heels I own. Hands down. I don’t know what your budget is but bluefly.com is an authorized retailer and sell tons of designer shoes on discount. Not $700 off kind of discounts but you can at least knock a couple hundred off. 

I guess another thing to consider is they probably won’t be terribly uncomfortable given how thick the heel is (more support). But it doesn’t seem to say how tall it is. That would worry me unless you’re fearless. 🙂 Do the other sites keep $60 if you return them?

I own 8 pairs of Louboutins and those are definitely fakes. There is no legit Louboutin shoe with a retail price less than $500. That said, I wouldn’t particularly consider Louboutins comfortable. I have various styles and the most comfortable ones are actually the more open and strappy designs in my opinion. I had to take mine off halfway through my wedding. So maybe the knockoffs will be more comfortable actually. But it really is a gamble.
