jmeetsj:  I looove the Choos so that gets my vote. Unless you have money to burn, I’d get a pair that you can wear again for nights out. I got the Evelyn for my wedding shoes and I definitely plan on getting more than one day’s use! Also my personal take on the curved heel is that when you look back on your wedding photos in 2, 5, 10 yrs, your shoes might look outdated instead of classic if you go with something trendy.

KC-2722:  Funny Bianca-related story: I’m not really one for big platforums/more ‘modern’ styles, so when I was looking for a pair of Loubs (treat from my lovely mum) it was between the New Simple Pump 120mm and the 85mm Simple Pump (no platform). The guy in the store persauded me to try the Bianca as I’m young and should try something more ‘fun’; I tried them, looked in the mirror and went ‘Oh god no, my feet look like hooves!’. Awkward, yet pretty funny lol

jmeetsj:  They look better on than in pics but, I find them underwhelming in comparison to the more detailed Choos and Louboutins you posted.

Walter Steiger makes a nice shaped heel, and the shoe itself is more impressive (imo).

First pair.   I do like “ugly” shoes very much with that said I personally would try to find a delicate pair of shoe with the curved heel.

jmeetsj:  Go with the Choos.  You will not regret it!  

I have the Kole shoe ( in black) and they are AMAZING! Just be sure to order a 1/2 size up – I normally wear a 7 1/2 but went with the 8 (Size 38) and they fit like a glove.

If you haven’t gotten them yet, I would order soon.  They sell out very quick.  Also, I recommend buying them diretly from a Jimmy Choo boutique.  If you order them online through Jimmy Choo you will be charged a foreign transaction fee.

Sorry I can’t upload a pic – WeddingBee isn’t working that well this morning.

barbie86:  Exact same experience! I went in for a simple, single soled pump and he tried to convince me on the Bianca. I put it on, stood up and sat right back down.. It was SO hoof-like on my food and I could barely stand!

KC-2722:  So glad I’m not the only one who felt they were hoof-like lol; the guy was really shocked, but my mum was like ‘Hmm, yes, you have a point…’ ๐Ÿ˜‰

I didn’t find them terribly uncomfortable (though I did feel about a mile tall lol, almost like I was wearing stilts..), I just really didn’t like them :-/

Very pleased the the ones I went for, much more elegant and classic!

niki2015:  I would only ever buy new from a reputable retailer eg Jimmy Choo direct, or a department store (here in the UK the main stockists are Harrods, Harvey Nics and Selfridges, with Browns also stocking them), or a reputable online retailer like Net-a-Porter/The Outnet. They all have sales in July and late December/early Jan, and you can usually expect discounts of 30-50%; the longer you wait, the bigger the discount, but popular styles and sizes get snapped up very quickly. I’m a popular size (38.5-39) so if I see something, I’ll buy it straight away if I can afford it; I don’t hang about. I was lucky and during the height of the recession a lot of designers were massively slashing prices; so I picked a few pairs up at that time for 50% off.

With Gina, you can get even bigger discounts; I’m on their mailing list and 3 times a year I get sent a code for 20% extra off any sale items. With that code I’ve managed to get shoes retailing full price at £600/$950 for around £230/$420 ie a huge saving.

I also live near London so have access to sample sales which are well worth a look; got a fabulous pair of Dolce and Gabbana heels for 70% off.

I think I’ve paid full price for just 2 pairs; my Loubs, and my Jimmy Choo wedding shoes (which are in a ‘classic’ range that hasn’t been reduced; they’ve actually gone up in price since I bought them 3 years ago).

I’ve also recently starting buying off eBay. With this though you really need to know what to look for (as there ARE fakes on there), and unless you’re OK buying used, you won’t save much eg I recently bought a pair of Choos for £55, and a pair of Ginas for £40; both have been worn, and the Ginas have a scuff on the heel, but they came boxed and with dust-bags. So that can be another way, though I know some people are funny about second-hand shoes (I’m not, used to buy/wear a lot of vintage stuff).

barbie86:  Thanks for the tip, especially suggesting Harrods! I forgot all about Harrods! I know how could I forget and its not a US company and it ships to the EU so no need to add duty! ๐Ÿ™‚
