Got my first valentinos! Pleasantly surprised that they are reasonably comfortable and they go with so many outfits. Does anyone think these are/will be dated looking soon? I’m probably keeping them regardless but just curious.
Beautiful! I have worn mine a few times and the heel tips seem to be have some wear but doesn’t bother me. Rest of the shoe is in pristine condition!

Hi All! I just got a pair of Rockstud sandals from Farfetch but something looks odd to me. The box and cards and dustbag look completely different from shoes and bags I got from Valentino up until last year. Not asking for authentication but does anyone know if newer boxes and dustbags look like this? Btw I’m returning for a peace of mind

These are authentic; I purchased a pair from Harrod’s last week and received the same box/dustbag. I highly doubt Harrod’s would ever sale inauthentic items.

Thanks for the info! Definitely! I guess they changed the packaging since I last bought a Valentino item :tup::tup:

I did end up returning to Farfetch because they also run big for me and repurchased from Valentino online, and the packaging was the same so problem solved!

Hi everyone, I'm super new to Valentino shoes, but does anyone know if this combo (black pebbled calfskin with gold studs) is part of their permanent collection or seasonal? I did purchase the 100mm pair with somewhat of a deal (roughly 25% off so about $890 including tax), but I'm debating whether I should return them and try to purchase them when I go to Europe (Italy/Paris) in June, for what I imagine will be cheaper than in the US.

Or do you know if this color combo ever comes in a lower heel height?

I'm leaning towards permanent, but may only be offered through their boutiques or select retailers bc I don't see it often. If you're talking specifically about black on black, with this heel height, I know the smooth leather variation, but with tone on tone rockstuds, is permanent. However, it's also not readily carries by most retailers. Also seems like they make limited stock of these permanent styles. Most popular is ofc the two toned version with black and nude trim.

Sorry, my iPohne swallowed my text :smile:

Fresh from the boutique: Sandals, size 42, a little bit too big for me, my bad, tried them on after 1 hour walking in the heat- but oh so comfortable! Now sitting in my shelf and waiting for my trip to Meran :smile:

Hi! Love both of these shoes, I’ve been eyeing the black ones. Would love to hear your opinion on them. Tia!
I’ve worn the black ones the most, it’s really comfortable despite the lack of padding. The brown ones pinch a little and run a bit narrow so I haven’t worn it as much.
