  1. Can anyone tell me if they have had any issues with her ballet flats?

    Thanks!!!!:confused1:
     
  2. Has anyone heard anything about these?
     
  3. Well, I didn't really think about it and I wore them in the rain. They soaked all the way through the bottom since the soles are just thin leather with rubber patches on the sole and heel.

    On the right foot the seam in the back where the leather is sewn together sometimes bugs me.

    Other than those two issues I absolutely love mine. I had a HORRENDOUS experience with Sue London's website. I think they have the most atrocious and unforgivable customer service. I will never buy from them again. I can't say anything bad about the shoes though. In fact, I regulary search for them on ebay and Bliss. Actually, I do have one complaint. I think they are overpriced. :smile:
     
  4. I have 3 pairs. I've not had any issues with quality. I wear them to bum around in when I don't want to wear my Lanvin flats. Because they fold, they are definitely not as comfortable walking on the street with them. I have to agree with Lawchick, their customer service leaves something to be desired.
     
  5. Thanks for the info...so you think they are over priced? I need a pair that's comfortable but I do want them to last. I'm just scared to get a pair of Lanvins because of all that i have read about the soles wearing out. I prefer leather flats that are super soft and that's why I was leaning towards the Sue London's. Hmmm...now I think I need to find a different brand. Any suggestions.?
     
  6. I would actually try Sue London. I love them I just can't get over how mad I am at the people that run the company. It's hard when you love a product but hate the company.
    Call Bliss. They have Sue London slipers on sale but showing up as unavailable for immediate shipment. Maybe if you do a phone order they can find a pair for you. There are 2 pair on eBay now in a size 6. Sue London recommends sizing down if you are in between sizes. I tried on an 8 and a 9. I wear a 8.5 but my feet are a bit wide. The 8 was way better! Whatever you do be warned about trying to order direct from Sue London. You will probably be sorry you did.

    I have heard really good things about Repetto and French/London Sole shoes. I have never tried them but they get rave reviews on this board.
     
  7. I did find them on Bliss...I'm going shopping this weekend and if I can't find anything I like then I think I'll try them. I wear a 7 1/2 8 so I think the 8 will be a great size. I know what you mean about having a great product but crap customer service. I try not to deal with companies like that. I just wish these shoes were in the stores in GA. Thanks for the info...it really helps.:tup:
     
  8. what is bliss??
     
  9. ^^They don't sell them on Bliss anymore! They had only black for awhile (for like $125 or $100), and then they went on a crazy sale to $25 (which I missed), and they never restocked.
