The green patent peep toes came and at first I really liked them. I'm not big on green but I have a ton of tan and red dresses that I could pair them with. Upon closer inspection, I noticed the gold toe material is scratched. It's strange as the soles are untouched but the toes on both shoes are clearly scuffed. I tried to take close up shots but it may be hard to tell. I pay more for certain items so that I don't have to worry about this. If this is what they look like now I fear what they will look like after a few nights out. What do you ladies think? I added a few other pics of the shoes and because they are so dark put a black piece of paper against them for comparison purposes.
