In a previous post I mentioned how I had fallen in love with the Balenciaga cut out boots. You'd also know how they cost more than $1,235, which I could never pay. Here's where the story gets good. I've been following this online store named Romwe for some time, but never bought anything. So here I am browsing their shoe line and I see a Balenciaga knock off for only $100!
Needless to say I just had to get them. After a server problem, I had to contact Romwe via e-mail. I was expecting bad communication and my e-mail being answered very late. However, I was pleasantly pleased and surprised. The communication was great! They answered my e-mail almost immediately and it wasn't an auto response. They were really kind and the customer service was divine! It took a couple of weeks for the boots to get here, since they're shipped from Singapore (if I'm not mistaken), but they got here.
At first I was really worried about the fit (I'm a worry wart when it comes to shoe fit) but they fit perfectly. I decided to test them for a couple of days and give a review instead of jumping in an writing about how beautiful and shiny they are... which is well... true. I wore them for 3 days, making sure each day I had to walk a lot. On the 1st day I wore them to college and had no problem what so ever. Same happened on the 3rd day, when I had to run errands. And on the 3rd day I wore them to work (from 11am to 3pm). Let me officially say how comfortable these shoes are! I'm just in awe how good they feel, even more than my Doc Martens! They're really a good investment, and if not the shoes per say, then the store. Truly, it's worth it. The prices are good and the customer service is good.
Also, keep in mind that they're really easy to wear. Black goes with everything. It's a statement shoe and it's a really fun experience to style them. It may also be a conversation starter. A lot of people stopped me to ask me about my shoes (which I always make it awkward). Also a fun fact is that the shoes say BALENCIAGA on the inside, you can giggle about that and fantasize you have some Balenciagas, you're choice. I know the boots are now retailed at $130 in Romwe, and at the moment are sold out. I'm sure they'll restock them soon, since they got really popular. Until the next post, everyone have a nice weekend!
