From Belle’s Closet: Sole Society Giselle Pumps
Jun 11, 2013
I’m experiencing what could charitably be described as difficulties with the Two Ways post. What difficulties you ask? Oh, I thought I finished it this weekend, and I didn’t. Checked it off the To Do List, when it was only half done.
To make sure that you were not wholly without content this afternoon, I re-tasked this post that was supposed to run on Thursday instead.
Welcome to Belle’s Closet, the occasional chronicle of my favorite purchases. Last month, I bought these “nude,” ankle-strap pumps on a whim, and I love them. The pleating on the front is a stylish accent, and the shoes are of a decent quality given that they’re constructed of man-made materials.
My adoration is surprising since I usually avoid any shoe that is more than 3.5″ high. But these are just a hair over at 3.75″, so I made an exception.
They’ve been my shoe of choice for evening events for a few weeks now. They’re fairly comfortable, though I did have the toe-box stretched and I added an insole for a bit more padding. But the heel is wide enough that they don’t feel rickety when I’m walking around.
This is my second pair of Sole Society shoes. I also bought these woven flats that have a Middle Eastern feel to them. And I think I might buy these high heel sandals as well, as they have the perfect 3″ heel and would be great for summer.
Honestly, I’ve been happily surprised by Sole Society. It does take a bit of breaking in for the shoes to be comfortable, but they have more style than their price would suggest and I find the quality comparable to my other shoe line of choice, Zara.
