baldy12 - They do look rather heavy at first glance, but I think you could make them look nice by pairing them with a pair of shorts or a summer dress. I've seen the red version before and don't like them as much, however.

PursePrincess - Nay. The gold is too extreme and ends up looking tacky, especially when paired with that wooden heel.

Jungla - Those are lovely shoes. The neutral color ensures they'll match with many pieces and the simple design can make them transition from a day shoe to an evening one. Yay!

handbaglover - Nay. I've always been hesitant with prints on shoes; they can only be paired with so many outfits. That print is especially tricky to match with something.

kentucky*derby - This is actually a difficult decision for me! I can hardly decide, but I'm going to go with the Ernesta. Personally, I think it'd look nice with both casual wear and evening wear, whereas the Mary Jane heel is a bit more formal and wouldn't look as nice with relaxed clothing.

And see, that's what I DON'T like is the T-strap. Without the T-strap I'd say the two would be an equal toss-up.

Thanks everyone, I'll try them on again at lunch. If money were no object I'd get both!

I had a similar thought when these came out ... they reminded me of not-cool shoes my mother wore in the 70s ...
