So, I have this notion that some things are classics and will forever be closet staples. Classic black Louboutins to are me one of them. I got the suede Eloise 100. genuine suede to me indicates luxury and makes shoes look so much better. I'll be honest, I've lurked on some post where people notice minuscule microscopic flaws that I've rolled my eyes at. I wasn't expecting aldo quality for a $700 pair of shoes. It seems harsh but its true. I've bought better quality Saks brand suede pumps on sale for less $100. I feel so disappointed that I played into "hype" like all I'm paying for is the brand and not the quality. I'm contemplating sending these back to Net-A-Porter. I really hope this was a glitch and not indicative of the brand quality.
