Valentino SS13 Rockstud Flats in Patent Fuschia Calfskin
A part of me is a real girly girl and I LOVE hot pink anything, which reminds me of Barbies and candies lol. When this color came out, I knew it would be a hit, but I felt like I already purchased 2 pairs of Rockstud heels recently that I should pass on these. Fast forward a few months, Neiman Marcus just so happened to receive another batch of inventory when they were also doing their promotional GC event. I couldn’t resist and purchased these flats.
Comfort – Not the greatest… because the front is narrow and pushes my toes flat down when most shoes have a natural curve to allow your toes to angle up 10-15 degrees.
Craftsmanship – I don’t know what is up with Valentino, but this is my second pair with a CROOKED stud (as you can see in the 3rd pic of the shoe on top). My other Rockstud kitten heels also had this problem. That’s 2/3 shoes with defects = 67% prevalence! Do Valentino not hire quality control staff?!?!
Overall – I’d give these shoes 8/10 as the style definitely deserves extra points, but comfort-wise and quality both lose a point each.
