I had once called these shoes the "Ultimate Vegas shoe" and after seeing them in person, I can't think of a better description. The shoe signing I attended required a purchase, and these were the shoes I decided on after a helpful sales associate sent me numerous pictures, and then trying them on in person (a dedicated shoe lover always makes an informed decision).
They are ridiculous and over-the-top, but their uniqueness makes them that much more special as I associate them with fond memories of my DC trip.
Sizing is slightly small, but I took my usual 6.5 for open-toe. Fit is narrow as well, but I tried on a smaller size of this shoe that had obviously been tried on and stretched out, and the leather seems to stretch quite a bit.
