Me again sorry for bothering you guys but I need some urgent advice as some of you might know I have been looking for the ariella talon booties but really don't want to pay retail CL shops here have not marked them down and the leather version goes for 660 euros plus shipping that's 680 euros. I can only dream about all the fabulous sales you guys have in the US.... Now I did find a pair in gray suede a bid under retail about 510 euros incl. shipping I think that's about $730 or $750. Should I get them? I did want black but honestly I don't need black... I think they could be nice for early spring, weather in the South of France is rather rain free. (it's been pooring for a week but that's unusual) Does anybody have the gray ones are they very hard to keep looking nice? If I get them should I size one size up from my usual CL size?
