A couple of months ago, I was wandering around Starhill Gallery when I came upon the Sergio Rossi store. I’m not familiar with the shoe brand although I have heard of it. It just didn’t quite stay in my consciousness. But that evening, I peered in the window, saw an absolutely lovely pair of blue pumps (I don’t have blue pumps!) and a small sign with the 4 letter word we so love – S.A.L.E! So I stepped in.
I have not stopped lusting after the shoes since!
The shoes, even on sale, sported a 4 figure price tag so I was content to just try them on for size and comfort and walk away. It was the comfort level that really blew me away, because I could have sworn up and down that a shoe that looks like the one above, would not be comfortable. I mean, look at that spindly stiletto heel! That pointy tip! That height!
But you know, it was comfortable. Very comfortable! Darn :P
It was my first time trying on a pair of Sergio Rossi pumps, and they were impressively comfortable despite the height. The carpet in the store was a thick pile carpet but even then, I did not feel like I was about to twist my ankle and break my neck.
The height felt comfortable, I did not notice the super thin stiletto heels and I could walk upright, without having to compensate by leaning forward as sometimes happens when you wear a shoe that’s too high for you. I could walk quite normally and that is saying something.
I was particularly taken in with some nude pumps in store. The ones with a platform, as you see in this image above, were very comfortable. They did not feel heavy nor clunky. I also tried on a pair of blue suede heels quite similar to the electric blue one above, and they too felt very comfortable. I caught sight of myself in the mirror in store, and went “Damn! Those shoes make my legs look like they go on forever!”
The only shoes that I felt did not feel quite as comfortable was the ones with lower heels or flats. That was a surprise! Also, I take a EUR36 and the fit was spot on. I could and would have walked out of the store with a pair of lovely nude pumps, if sanity did not prevail :)
I’ll still lusting after them though. Maybe next sale ;)
Does anyone own a pair of Sergio Rossi heels? Is it love or should there be something I should be concerned about?
I’d love to know if anyone does own a pair of SR shoes and can share their thoughts on them. Are they worth the splurge? Are they comfortable? :D
