My avatar is a pic of my Rene Caovillas wedding shoes! They are exquisitely made, but alas, I only own one pair bc my life only requires one pair of cinderella-like shoes.Oh, absolutely, the fit is everything. Valentinos, Gianvitos and Aquazzuras are some of the best shoes for me as well (in terms of comfort). I don't own any BVs, only one pair of Saint Laurents, so not enough experience to comment and have never heard of Malone Souliers. What about Rene Caovillas? I am sure you own quite a few pairs. Even though I was familiar with the brand for a long time, I only bought my first pair several months ago and absolutely fell in love with them. So comfortable.
