Been obsessing over these for a while now, and they popped up in an 8.5 today on NM - I couldn't resist.... http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?cmCat=search&itemId=prod37260013 Picture from NM - My questions are - I usually would order an 8 in a shoe like this. Will an 8.5 work? I tried on a pair of CL ankle tie wedges in a 9 before, and they were way to big. How well do these skinny heels hold up to someone who is not exactly skinny wearing them? I probably shouldn't have ordered them, but I love the look. Maybe I'm going through a midlife crisis? Someone who is a total klutz, 48, and has back problems and bad knees probably shouldn't even be looking at these. But I want them!!!!
