I cannot wait to wear these shoes at my September wedding! They are even more attractive in-person than on-screen. The gold and red are classy, cheerful and bright without being gaudy in any way. The block heel is elegant and not too chunky. I am a reliable US 7 in shoes normally, and the size 7 here fit me perfectly. Customer service even emailed before shipping my order with a request for me to measure the length of my foot to ensure a good fit. The sticker on the bottom of the sole says size 37, whereas a US 7 usually translates to a 38, so I was worried they might be too small when I saw the sticker, but the sizing was just perfect - I would rely on the website and customer service's guidance on sizing. I have worn these around the house for about 30 mins, and they are very comfy right out of the box. Upon opening, there was a smell (guessing dye and/or glue), but a day of airing out was all it took for the smell to dissipate. Great quality, and a unique shoe from a reputable company; there is really no equivalent anywhere else online if you're in the US (trust me, I looked). My only request of East Meets Dress... when are y'all going to make these as a flat so that I can kick off the heels after the ceremony and dance the night away at the reception in style?
