While shopping for holiday gifts couple of days ago, I wondered into Fendi to find the biggest markdown already, 60% off shoes. My gosh, that was like music to my savvy ears. Sales must be slow because markdown usually stays at around 30 ~ 40% off before Christmas and 60% off, after Christmas.
Anyway, I fell in adoration with this pair of Fendi B patent heels and tried it on for size immediately. This style comes in black or purple patent. When I tried on my usual size 37, the heel literally fell off my foot so I thought 36.5 then. Shoe goddess must be playing a evil shoe joke on me yesterday because size 36.5 heels fit at the heel but my toes had to curl under to fit into the toe box. So this is my conversation with my SA...
SG: Darn it, such comfortable shoes and such a deal. (Girls, that pair of heels feel comfortable. I just know if I can find the right fit, I will live in them.)
SA: It's narrow in the front, you just have to break them in...
SG: I don't believe in breaking shoes in because they should just so right from the first try.
SA: We just need to stretch them out for you in the toe box.
SG: But... my toes are curled under now; I don't know if I can talk...
SA: You just have to break them in because they are patent leather.
Well, I didn't buy them because I figured at 60% off I still had to pay close to $300for them after tax. I should be able to slip my feet in these heels and say ah... perfect. So savvy people, do you break in your shoes or are you like SG, shoes should fit perfectly from the beginning? From my own experience, shoes that are break-in required usually just sits in my shoe closet and what a waste of money.
