hello ladies, I just got some black suede declics thinking I was buying 120's, however i now have them and after measuring the heel it measures 130mm (from the top of the back of the heel to the tip) and they feel really high on - would this be a 120 or a 140? I do love them so will eventually master how to walk in them I am sure :P

neiners I would say about the same - you look really comfortable in them - I feel like I am going to topple over - even my maggies dont feel as high but then i think they have a biger platform...I love the colour of your BTW :smile:

Sounds like they are the 140s.
thanks jet, i am so gutted cause i have been after some 120's at a good price forever, but I got these at a good price so i probably will keep them and just practice - if i can master these may be i can move onto the pigalle 120's :biggrin:

Those look like 140's to me! The declic is sooo gorgeous in that heel height!
What size are they? They might differ in heel if you are a smaller size.

18th of January, they have been missing ever since. Holland says they are in England, and England claims they are in Holland :cry:

thank you all for your advise the consensus is that I MUST learn to walk in them....
baby- you are soo right - they are very sexy, just not the way I walk in them yet - hee hee, but i do plan to learn - any tips would be appreciated.

iloveredsoles-they are a size 37.5 - maybe that is why they have a 130 rather than a 140 (blessing!!)

ikaesmallz - yes they have a small hidden platform - only about 10mm though i think.

neiners so sad about your declics..that must be very frustrating :sad:
