Which Pair to Buy?

Jun 30, 2014
Hello All! Would like your input: which pair should I buy - that I would get the most benefit from - now and say 5-10 years from now?

I have these:
New Decoltissimo 85mm Black Patent and Decollete 85mm Nude Patent

Which do yourecommend I get: electric blue or black kid?
Decollete 85mm Electric Blue or Decollete 85mm Black KID

My apologies, tried to make pictures smaller.

Thank you!

I'd go for the blue patent as you already have a the décolleté in black patent, blue would add more variety. Do u think you'd get a lot of wear out of the blue? I.e. Can u see yourself wearing them very often? Do they go with clothes you have in your wardrobe?

Thank you for your feedback! I can see myself wearing the blue...to give an outfit a pop of color. Of the two, most of my wardrobe go with black. I really like the blue; I'm just concerned if it's trendy and would look dated rather than classic 10 years from now.

In my opinion, since you already have the black patent, I wouldn't go for the black kid. I would only go for a second pair of black, if my first pair would be suede and I wanted another pair that can withstand a little rain as well, but with the patent you already have that.

Now, for the blue. I think it is an absolute beautiful color, it can really brighten up an outfit.
That being said, it is not a color I would buy with the intention to have as a versatile, classic pair that would match my entire wardrobe. When I would buy a popping color like that, that I can only pair with a few outfits, I would keep in mind that it would not be a pair I'd wear a lot.
It is not a true classic color, but I don not consider it a real trend color either; it's appropriate for all ages and occasions, so yes, in 5-10 years, you can still wear them.

Some unsolicited opinion: Decollete looks fantastic in red/Pavot kid leather and that is a true classic color (it compliments every wardrobe, always) that pops as well. But I don't know if red is a color you like...


Vintage CLs please

I like the blue Decollete. Since you already have nude and black patent covered, a bright pop of colour would be a good choice. A closed pointy toe stiletto is very much a classic style. It's fun to add color.

I would go for black patent as you can also wear tights with these. the scratches or dents wont be as visible as other colors in my experience..
