I really wanted the black corta pumps in patent after purchasing them in leather. The patent just makes my heart skip a beat. Saks is completely sold out in my size and no one else seems to have the shoe. Therefore, I purchased a half size smaller and a half size bigger. The smaller size is bearable but I can anticipate some serious pain after an hour. The half size larger is just that. Can I stuff? What would you tPFs do? I really love these shoes hence my desperation. I feel like one of Cinderella's stepsisters.
