These very nice pumps are now on sale for HK$2,080, plus HK$270 shipping by DHL Express. The two sizes left are 36.5 and 38.5. (Note: Mytheresa says these heels run slightly small, and recommends trying half a size bigger. In other words, these should fit sizes 36 and 38 respectively.)
These nude / "biscuit brown" colour heels would go perfectly with any light or bright coloured summer dresses. The 100mm heels are also the perfect height and width.
We have previously suggested some shoe shopping tip here. Now here are a few more:
Miss Curator's Tips on Shoe Shopping (Part 2)
- Try half a size bigger: Find your dream shoes but they don't have your usual size? Try half a size bigger with a pair of insoles. The insoles not only make the shoes half a size smaller, but also serve as a cushion that makes high heels more comfortable. Also try to get the gel insoles that stick (e.g. the Dr Scholl's DreamWalk). The cheap white ones that shoe shops throw in for free usually slip around when you walk, which makes it very uncomfortable.
- Expand your online search: The same principle above applies to online shopping. Expand your searches by also searching half a size bigger. For example, if you are normally a size 37, then search for both size 37 and size 37.5. You will be surprised how many more search results are generated. This is because most people know (and therefore search for) their shoe sizes by rounded up numbers. When there is a good deal (like these Mulberry ones), the half sizes usually sell out last.
- Big rather than small: If you are having a hard time deciding between two sizes (e.g. where size 37.5 feels too big, but size 37 feels too small), always go for the bigger size and just slip in a pair of insoles. Also, don't forget that your feet will expand after a few hours of walking. So shoes which are slightly too small on the fluffy carpet of the store might become extremely uncomfortable after a couple of hours.
- But not TOO big: We know we recommended insoles a lot in this post, but they DON'T work miracles (Surprise! Surprise!). It doesn't matter how beautiful the shoes are if you end up never wearing them. If they are one size too big, then they are too big. Ignore the shop sales when they tell you that a full insole can reduce the size by one size (as opposed to a half insole which reduces the size by half size). With limited exceptions, full insoles normally DON'T work in high heels and narrowly-shaped flats because (1) they are ugly and cover up the beautiful Jimmy Choo/Prada/Gucci trademark, and (2) they make the shoes too tight but taking up too much "bottom space".
- [Note: the exceptions are (1) Tod's flats which are quite wide in shape; and (2) trainers which are, again, widely shaped (but not the new narrow designs which are currently very popular. Dr Scholl's also have these new full size DreamWalk insoles endorsed by Heidi Klum. But Miss Curator remains skeptical, and would recommend that you try any new shoes on with these insoles before buying.]
