So here it is, the beautiful Decollete 554 100mm in Patent Nude.
So this is actually my second pair of loubs and they are absolutely GORGEOUS!
I went for the nude colour as my other pair are black – nude and black go with pretty much any outfit, fact. No one can deny that surely? I went for a 100mm heel as I was thinking about being practical, they are easy to walk in (for me) and therefore will get more use out of them compared to a 120mm heel.
`You will see they are similar to the pigalle but with just a few differences which I will go through. I will be comparing them to the pigalle which are one of the standard most popular design:
- The heel is thinner and more of a pencil heel than the pigalle, which you might say makes them a little harder to walk in but in my opinion makes them look a little sexier than the pigalle. When I tried these on at the same time as the pigalle there wasn’t much difference for me, but this is coming from someone that wears heels every day, so a little bit of a skinner heel doesn’t make s massive difference for me.
- The fit of the shoe itself and the toe box is narrower. If you have wide feet, these are not the shoe for you. I have narrow feet and they fit perfect width wise. I struggle with non designer shoes as a majority are too wide for my feet, that’s how narrow my feet are. I’ve heard that the toe box stretches with wear, this is yet to happen to me on either of my loubs but maybe because I have narrow feet, there’s nothing making them stretch? Just food for thought.
- The toe box is longer than that of the pigalle. This actually helps me as I have quite long toes (interesting fact? gross more like) and therefore it gives that little extra room for your toes to stretch a little. It is debated between people whether this makes a difference or not, I think it does in my experience.
I love love love these Decollete’s and I chose them over the Pigalle’s, because of the reasons above. That is not to say I would never buy the Pigalle’s though, they’re still a beautiful shoe.
I bought these from Selfridges in Manchester, where the service was great and would definitely recommend purchasing from there!
Thank you for reading my lovelies!
