Shoe Love: YSL 'Tribute Mary Jane's'

How do I love shoes?
Let me count the pairs...

If you have been a follower of the blog for awhile you will know that I love shoes. I am always looking for new pairs and you can often find my latest lust worthy pair in my What I Want Wednesday posts. After my Shoemint review and a few pics of my closet on Twitter I had quite a few of you comment that you wanted to see more of my shoes. Well, my friends, I am going to show you! This will be a post every week or two. I would love to hear from you what you would like to know about the shoes or designer. All shoes are NOT made equally so ask away!
 
Of all the designer shoes that I own, the brand I have the most pairs of is YSL. I swear these shoes were made for my feet and I fall in love with a new style every season. In. LOVE. This pair is one of my most comfortable. Cognac is such a staple color in my shoe wardrobe and I love the richness of color in these shoes. This pair is a mix of leather and suede which makes them a little different than the other pairs in my closet. I also really fancy the intricate design that covers the toes. It is pretty and interesting.

YSL 'Tribute Mary Jane's'

Designer
Yves Saint Laurent

Fit
YSL runs true to size. This pair is a size 39 (US 8 1/2-9) and fits perfectly. I have found that their close toe pumps tend to be on the smaller side. But I think that is because of my wider foot. Majority of YSL heels are between 4-6 inches tall. These shoes are not for those afraid of wearing HIGH heels.

Wear
These shoes are tough and can take a beating. I have worn them all day at work, out on the town and out to dinner. The platform in front gives a little more stability when walking and helps balance out the HIGH heel.

Comfortability:
This pair of shoes was so comfortable from day ONE! I did not have to break these in and I was able to wear them for 8 hours straight. I am a HUGE fan of suede shoes because they tend to give a little and mold to your foot. I am sure that is why they were a little more comfortable from the beginning.


*** This is where your questions come in. I will add to this section if you all want to know more. I appreciate the feedback***

DISCLAIMER: I feel more comfortable in HIGH heels. I worked in Retail for 8 years. YES, I wore HIGH shoes every day so I am used to being in them!

  1. I LOOOOOOOVE these. Oh if only I could fork over the money for designer shoes. :) I'll just live vicariously through you. Can't wait to see more of your shoes!

    I love heels, wear them all the time and have always loved them - even when I was a little girl. I'm rarely ever seen without my heels on and when they're off, people are amazed at my real height. Lol. I swear to everyone that they're more comfortable to me than flats are but no one believes me. I recently read an article about how bad heels are for you, but, oh well. Ya live once. Might as well wear cute shoes. :)

  9. Those shoes are AMAAAAAZING! Platform Mary Janes are definitely the most comfy pair of heels out there, but these don't look 'school girl' like some you see. I need these in my life!
