There's something about a red sole that just makes people melt. I've had my eye on a pair of Louboutin's for the longest time, and finally I caved from the pressure. Here are my deliciously delightful new pair of So Kates.
I know I know, I teared up a little bit too when I finally opened up the box. I ordered the 120mm nude patent leather So Kates, and I couldn't be happier!
So after deciding to treat myself with a new shoe purchase, I went on the hunt. Of course, these highly sought after shoe was not available on the Christian Louboutin website, so I decided to continue my search online through Ebates. I thought to myself, if I'm going to spend over $700 on a pair of shoes (this includes tax), I want to do it the smart way and get money back through ebates.
The one huge problem that I faced with most sites that carried the So Kates, was that my size was on backorder. From Neiman Marcus to Barneys, I would have a wait time of nearly 3 months. I was lucky enough to find them on Saks' website, but was smacked with disappointment when they couldn't "find" the ONE PAIR they had in stock.
After a few weeks of searching on my own with no luck, I enlisted one of my stylist friends to contact their "connections." Literally 30 minutes later I got a phone call from the Christian Louboutin boutique in Hollywood with the LAST PAIR IN MY SIZE IN THE ENTIRE USA!
Yes, my friend is that good.
I'm absolutely in LOVE with these babies! After I received them I was a little bit hesitant about the sizing. I'm usually a 37 and after reading reviews, decided to go up to a 37.5. My foot is a pretty normal width so I figured I'd be good with just the half size increase. When I put them on for the first time, I realized that the width of the toe-box on the So Kates is pretty much made for the narrowest food on earth.
I was completely nervous and went straight to the Madison Avenue boutique to get an expert opinion. After trying on the shoes with the sales associate, she told me that because the shoes were leather, they would stretch to the width of my foot and I should have no issues after a few wears. Safe to say she was right, and I can't wait to order my next pair in black and eventually get the leopard pair, oouu La La!
