"I have blister-prone feet. For whatever reason, whenever I wear new shoes for the first time, they rub and I wind up unable to get my poor feet into anything other than flip flops for days. I was expecting the same thing to happen when I wore these Nina pumps to a wedding I attended last night, and came prepared with an arsenal of bandages. Imagine my amazement as I tore up the dance floor without once feeling like I needed to remove these gorgeous shoes! Not only is the heel low enough to not completely kill after a while, but the shoes don't rub anywhere on my feet at all. The gold is a lighter champagne color with lots of shimmer, making them a fun wedding or going out shoe. Definitely packing these when I go to Las Vegas next month!"
