Everyone always raves about how comfortable they are on other forums, so I figured, why not? They look super cute in the picture and they come in a ton of different colors (16 to be exact), so if these work, I can buy one in each color to match every outfit!
I opened the box in excitement.
They looked nice, and seemed pretty soft. But something was rather stiff about the elastic heel. I slipped the first flat on to my right foot, and.... I knew right away that they had to go back. =( I could already feel the digging into my ankles, and wearing them for long periods of time was not going to be pretty. They definitely had to go back. I brought them to UPS that same afternoon. I shoved them back into the box so quickly, I forgot to take a picture! I really should be used to having to return shoes because of discomfort, but it never fails, I always feel disappointed when a shoe doesn't work. If you have some not-so sensitive feet, I would definitely give the Me Too Legend Flats a try. Unfortunately, they just did not work for me.
On Tuesday, the other two pairs of flats I ordered arrived in the mail. This is the first box:
They are Me Too Lulu4 ballet flats in Pine Green. The first thing I thought when I pulled these shoes out of the box was: This flower is GIANT!! LOL. The shoes themselves also looked a little large which concerned me a little bit. I slipped them on and they fit really well! Lots of padding in the footbed. The right shoe was a little large, which was expected...but otherwise really great! The back of the heel was pinching just ever so slightly, but nothing a little Dr. Scholl's can't fix. Overall, I really liked these. But SO isn't so fond of them. HAHA.
This is what the little shoe tape looks like:
I highly recommend this Dr. Scholl's tape. If there is a spot in your shoe that constantly rubs, then just put this little tape inside and it will solve the problem. It is thin, yet soft and cush-y. You can find it in the foot care aisle of your drugstore. I think I will have to place a heel grip in the right show to help it fit better, but that's no skin off my back.
I put them aside and moved on to the next box, the Block Giselle Roll Up Flats. I purchased them from WinkNYC.com with their new customer code: CSS8 for 30% off. They look super comfortable in the picture, and I've heard of women saying that they are super comfortable, and the nude-ish color (actual name of the color is "Cigar")? Perfect! So here they are:
I was slightly taken aback when I first opened the box, but the moment I slipped them on, I was in LOVE. I can honestly say, that these are most comfortable flats I have ever put on. EVER. No digging. No pinching. Absolutely comfortable right out of the box. I didn't even have to slip on a sock liner. WOW. The Me Too Lulu flats do have more padding in the footbed, but these are still way more comfortable overall. I HIGHLY recommend these. They are TTS, but they fit like a true ballet slipper--very snug...but not uncomfortably so. If you like a little wiggle room in the toes or have a wider foot, you might consider going up half a size. These shoes are making me consider returning the Lulus and ordering another pair of Bloch since they are a more classic shoe, and probably will stand the test of time. The Lulus are a little bit more trendy, and with minimal income its probably best not to keep them. I'm about 80% sure I'm going to send them back. I'll have see if I can get another pair of Bloch flats first!
