REPORTING FROM CHICAGO


I went to Ikram this afternoon. Here is what they have. A BIG NADA!

Well, maybe not quite. 6-INCH does not exist-they did not and WILL NOT get any. They had the 4-inch cones in red patent and green satin.

I asked for a 40 in red and all they had left was a 36 and a 41. I tried the 41 on and although left one was ok (my slightly bigger foot) the right one was not a great fit. The price tag read $895.00 The SA said that they are the ONLY store who carries these shoes. There is NO waitlist. They will NOT be getting any more of these shoes.

The shoes were high but very comfy otherwise. They also felt light on my feet. I would not mind buying the 4-inch had they had them in my size.

So, I dont know what to do now. Any suggestions as to how we all are going to locate these shoes?

that makes me so angry! why wouldn't they produce the catwalk-high version? it's so upsetting because those are the version in all the ads and editorials!

I saw the satin ones too and the dark patent color. They run very small.

Why didnt you just order them off Luis via Roma?? Of course, they're sold out now lol, but.....isn't that a european site?? You may never find it in the states. They had the 6-inch open-toed version....

the version on the luis via roma site used the runway picture, but the heel height was listed as 100mm, so it was the shorter heel as well.

The SA said they do not exist. It may very well mean that Ikram did not buy them

or

No US stores thought they were sensible enough to wear so they did not get them

By the way, I think the sandals are more fab than the pumps. Pumps are gorgeous but the sandals were something else

the exact pair I tried on today (shorter heel of course)

iluvfashion,
yes those are very hot!! i just liked the pumps because the heel was conical all the way around, the sandal's heel is rounded in the back and squared off in the front.
the red patent is gorgeous though, if they had that one in the higher heel i'd get the sandal as well.
i talked to lanvin paris today, and according to them, they are not releasing any of the runway height shoes to the public. that really sucks!
i'm letting my pumps go, i hate to because i went through so much drama and money to get them from paris, but i'm into VERY high and dramatic heels this season. anyone get the sky high balenciagas? or are those shortened too?
oh, lanvin also informed me that the turquoise patent shoes were for the runway only. another bummer.

yeah, that is a bummer! Those were so pretty.

I bet alot of people who ordered from via roma thought they were getting the 6-inch version.

What is the point of making shoes for the runway if they won't be releasing them to public? What do the buyers do at these shows? Pick out stuff they cannot buy for their stores?

i'm not a fan of the sandal. i much prefer the pump...



and these two ... ...



... but neither of these are being produced either... the first pair (crocodile/iguana) was featured in new york times magazine and the credit said "show piece only" ....

are these lower-heel crocodiles commercially available??

I love the pumps and the white/croc ones. I still can't believe they aren't making these.

Are the lower ones worth $900?

Ooooh, Brian you are making my mouth water

I am still upset about the whole thing
These pieces are gorgeous and it is a shame that they are for runway only
