I've been on the hunt for some affordable black leather oxfords and tracked down these - Yay or Nay?

Time to help Retro out here...

I'm going to Yay! those. It's a proper balance of classy and chic. They would be even more so if they were some shiny leather. But if this is what you want or what you're unsure of, I say yay.



You got me vote. Those are winners there.

Viktor & Rolf heels
I think it might end up being too tacky? With the patent it seems like it might be over the top?

Let me make a quick note about something before I offer my review of the pumps in Post #10,975. There are those who say, "I'd rather reserve my judgment until I see these shoes in person." To me, if it doesn't look lovely in pictures, then chances are that it may not look good seen in person or being worn on someone's feet. Having said this, let me chat on these shoes.

You fear those shoes may be too tacky? Not only tacky, but ugly. [B]Total Nay![/N] The two-tone design, huge flower thingy at the toes, and the heels of these shoes... ugh! Good luck trying to go the other way with my review. These things are terrible! Too much going on here for my liking. Halloween is on October 31st; NOT June 17th! Pass these shoes up at once (don't let your eyes or wallet tell you otherwise)! Those pumps are an epic fail. Defend these all you want, they're terrible. End of story.

I don't think the shoes are super ugly but I don't particularly like them either. I agree that they can easily look too tacky so NAY from me.

eh, if you're already worried about them being too tacky - there are always other shoes. So I do vote Nay.

Marginal nay from me, the heel is just too much. The rest of the shoe is OK though (not that that makes any difference!)

pinkplasticgun - I do like the white and black combination, but I don't like the three different themes together - the heel + the patent dual colours + the ugly flower piece...its a nay for me.
