1. I love this style. I have wanted a pair of these for years. I finally got a pair at a price I was comfortable with paying, the shipping was fast and they looked great.
2. I have found several of this heel style with varying uppers and all in the same price range. I am so excited as I may be able to get more.
Here is how things progressed:
Put the shoes on, they felt great. With many heels of this height having a tall platform, they are not the most stable on thick carpet. I was careful & got several pictures taken (You can see all of them by clicking the link at the top of the page). I finished with the pictures, stood up and the left instep strap came right of the shoe. I was devastated. I inspected things more closely to see what the issue may have been. The possibilities are as follows:
1. Manufacture issue
2. Knock off designer
3. Sold to eBay seller who repaired it spit and glue style and resold as new
I am leaning towards the knock off manufacture at the moment, but I have had this brand of shoe fail on me before. I also got them from an eBay seller, so it is possible the manufacturer is of poor quality. I can honestly say I do not think I will get another pair of shoes by this manufacturer again. Pity really, they have some sexy heels.
Not having enough information on the origin of this particular shoe, I would be wrong in assuming all their products are of low quality. However, as I have had the same failure in two different styles of the same brand of shoe, I would make this statement with confidence; “I will not purchase this brand from eBay sellers in the future. If I am able to examine a product from this manufacturer in person from a store to see the quality first hand and possibly try them on I may consider these two experiences as flukes and the result of me being had by imposters.”
I have to say, the seller is being very good about things. We are working out a solution to this issue. It goes without saying eBay purchases are a gamble and most of the time it goes in the buyers favor. Nobody can expect perfection from a eBay purchase. Most of the time you are purchasing something used or handled from another consumer and you have to expect some flaws. I have been eBaying for nearly a decade and I can say I have only come across a dozen issues of all kinds. So no hard feelings there.
