The Very Prive has been my most coveted shoe and until recently has long alluded me. Now I have four with one on pre-order. The four I currently have are the tortoise shell, patent black, kid skin black, and burma lava/gray with the nude patent on pre-order. I am probably going to return the burma and the kidskin black with red tip. I thought the burma would be more silver and the cut is a little too generous for me. I cannot keep a kidskin and patent in the same color, so the kid skin will go back. I was considering wearing the kidskin for daytime and the patent for night, but when I look at the two, the patent makes a statement. The way the patent catches the light and the deep red of the toe just about knocks me out.
