They are a little too wicked for me, they look great on the catwalk, but I can't imagine walking around in them in real life...perhaps only during a formal do.

As for the Lanvin sizing, I do not owe any lanvin heels. But I often go up half a size in their flats as the sizing is Italian. Hope that may be of some help to those who are considering these shoes

At far as the sizing, I have a pair of lanvin heels in 38, and I wear a 37.5 or 38. They seemed to run pretty true to size

I seriosly love the red patent ones though
I found them too theatrical and too fetish like. great party shoes(to certain parties), but a little too much for daily life Did you order them already? I'm curious to see how your wear them - what bags, outfits, etc.

They look like nice art pieces...I'd put them in a glass case to display with spot lights

I don't like the black ones, but the red ones are hot!

I'm part of the group that loves these shoes....they're some of the coolest, most interesting shoes I've ever seen. I couldn't care less who designed them to be quite honest, but the fact that they came from the king of ladylike chic just makes them even cooler.

Love the patent open-toe in black and red, the sandal with the ankle strap and the black satin pump.....they all make me wish I was a women for a while.

I think they looked fabulous on the runway, but judging by the Luisa via Roma pics, the actual production shoes look cheap and poorly made.

^ I think it's just the LVR pics. They are taking them for a ankle below eye level so the platform looks unproportional to the shoe. Half their pics dont do any justice to their merchandise.

^meant "from an angle" in the post above this one

But anyways, barneys has these on their homepage http://barneys.com/index_flash.html

I've tried calling the barneys store to waitlist but everyone there seems clueless. There are no lanvin boutiques in the US as far as I know, where else can I try?
