Black pumps - I needed a pair of black pumps for the upcoming
holiday office party. I came across these and thought the look
was exactly what I was looking for. Everyone that I've shown
them too (including my excited boyfriend) loves them! My only
complaint would be the arch support is a little off. I'm in
the process of breaking them in for the upcoming party. The
sexiest shoes ever - I had been looking for sexy, elegant
black patent leather pumps for a long time, with no success. I
ordered 3 or 4 different styles, and Carrie wins hands down.
In the patent leather, you definitely need half a size bigger
than usual, as they don't stretch. Other than that, they seem
pretty comfortable for high-heels - but I have only won them
around the house. They are so, so sexy! My husband loved them.
The low-cut inside part makes your foot look very sexy even if
you have flat feet, like I do. Go for it - they are the best!
Kick A** Boots that look great too!! I've now purchased my
third pair of these and will buy another when needed. They are
kick a**, look good, and (believe it or not) go with almost
anything! I work conservative during the week, and then either
"leather" or "punk it" (or a combination) when not on the job.
Never had a transition problem. Well worth it. I'd suggest the
14 eyelets if you aren't sure about the 20's. In a state of
bliss........ Aloha, I just slipped into a pair of my brand
new docs (ok so maybe iIdidnt slip into them, it took a half
hour to lace them up! Then another three trying them on with
all my favorite sarongs!) I have to say I feel so POWERFUL in
these boots! "Hello World!".. I have the previous version of
these 20-eyes, the 1420Z, replaced by the 9663, and it has a
little "bulge" thing in the back of the boot just above the
ankle. Makes it easier to take the boot on and off because
your heel can go right through it with ease, without lacing
and unlacing every time. Don't know if these 9663's have it
though. All that aside, Dr. Martens are a great investment. I
wear them with casual skirts to show off the 20 eyelets and go
toward the "punk" side of my wardrobe; I wear them with pants
to be more conservative. I work in I.T. at a small college,
and I'm often walking all over the place or carrying heavy
monitors or printers. I had never known stability or shock
absorption until I had to carry heavy things with these Docs
on my feet, and I was instantly in love.
