So technically these are my second pair of Cls since I also bought boots on eBay but I am so excited about them it's like they're my first! They fit like a dream- though my heel is slipping out of the left one a little bit but I am sure I can fix that! They were described on eBay as black with plum undertones but they look more bronzy to me. And the pics I took look silver. True chameleon shoes I guess! They have more toe cleveage than I'm used to but I think I might grow to like it. I adore them regardless and I cannot wait to start wearing them! To what I have no idea.... lol. One question- The scales seem to be coming up a little on the back of one of the shoes. Is there something I can do or have done to them to protect them? i heard they can catch on your clothes and get ruined. Thanks! I hope it's ok but I went a little picture crazy. The lighting in my apt is so bad. And my cat wanted in on the action. Lol.
