I just tried on Nina’s Electra in Grape Luster, and they were surprisingly comfortable and true to size! The only disappointing part was that what was advertised as 4″ heel was really 4.5″!!! I measured it from the floor to the highest point that the base of the heel comes to (see picture attached). 4.5″. No joke. I mean, how does everyone measure their heels? I feel like I’m seriously missing something here and need to start browsing for “lower heels” online.
That being said, has anyone tried Nina’s DYO option? Is the 3.25″ Electra really 3.25″ to the base of the heel or is it higher? I have been going crazy trying to find cute purple heels that are not too high (even 3.5″ heel is a little pushing it). Nina’s Electra is definitely a strong contender for the wedding shoe; that is, if it’s not 4.5″ tall! Please help!
On the note of purple heels, I’ve also tried on Badgley Mischka Randall and Randee. As cute as the designs are, I felt like I was going to trip and twist my ankle the entire time! It’s so sad because I really want to love them too! Sniffles.
