    This brand deserves a thread all its own. Julia Lundsten is a remarkable designer that is on the rise.

    They can also be purchased at www.asos.com and Labour of Love London (or through Far Fetch.com) - both sites are having sales on at the moment the s/s 2009 range, although Amelie Boutique has been the cheapest place so far for s/s09 shoes, with very few sizes left!

    I definitely will, I should have them in my possession early next week.
    You should post your boots too when they arrive ^_^

    These shoes remind me a lot of architecture. I think its the textures and colors used together. I really really like them :smile:

    leyla, im with you on this point, this season is the most appealing. older seasons are interesting and distinct but dont have the panache that this season does.

    S/S 2009 pink & blue wedges

    - these are fairly narrow and I would say run half a size small. I got them in 37 ( I normally wear 36 - 36.5) and they fit me well.

    i received mine last night and discovered the same truth, they run narrow in the toe box. love the quality and the design though.

    i'll take some shots tonight.

    those are keepers lulu...
    your legs...the shoes...the colors...are all so pretty.

    Cannot wait to see photos of your boots - I know some ladies who have bought them, but have never posted photos...

    The lady who I bought the shoes off of happens to work for Julia/Finsk in London, so she warned me that the shoes tend to run narrow. Hope it is not too much of a bother for you, and that you are able to enjoy them ^_^

    sadly my boots ran really narrow so i had to send them back. cant say enough about the workmanship, it was top notch and i loved her use of leather and wood together, they reminded me of an armadillo.

    i would size up a full size next time.

    I found the same thing. I went a full size up and they are still a tight around the toes.

    Did you get the ponyhair wedges?

    does anyone know where it's still possible to purchase the FINSK black pony (or suede?) & wooden wedge ankle boots? are those still in production? also, for anyone who has bought them, are they actually walkable?....or more of a piece fit for a museum/collecting?

    they seem to be sold out everywhere
    u can probably walk with them just for a few hours maybe but I dont know that would be great to know if some tfsers purchased it
    I actually wanted to buy them but they look like more like a collecting piece as you mentioned it
