Shoe Lust : Miu Miu Mary Jane Platform PumpFebruary 23, 2012
I have a soft spot for mary janes. They can look a bit immature but I love that the straps keep the shoes securely on my feet. I ordered two pairs during the big end-of-the-year sale at Nordstrom's but ended up returning the black ones.
In pictures the shoes look almost pinkish but in real life the red is almost absent. I would call them a light beige rather than a light pink. I think Cipria (or "face powder" for someone with fair skin) is a pretty good description for the color.
The shoes are well made but by no means are they worth their original price tag (which is a hefty $700). I got them for almost 60% off. The heels are about 5" tall (with a 3/4" platform) but on my feet they feel more like a pair of 3-in heels. They are still not made for standing on your feet for eight-hour days but definitely not uncomfortable for their height either.
Do you wear mary janes? What are your thoughts?
