The Sofft Fiorenza pumps in Chianti Patent are like my own personal ruby slippers. With their signature padded insoles, you can expect the same all-day comfort that you’ve come to love from the Sofft brand.
These shoes are my pick for the best red shoes to invest in for Fall 2009. I decided this based on style, comfort, value for the money, and versatility.
Style: An updated and very classy looking Mary Jane pump that is perfect for Fall. The Chianti red patent leather is so striking and beautiful. Pictures really don’t do any justice to these shoes.
Comfort: Besides the amazing color, these shoes are surprisingly comfortable for having a 3 ¼ inch heel. If you have foot problems and can’t wear high heels, you should definitely give these a try. The heel doesn’t feel as high as it looks and the wide strap holds the shoes on snugly. I have several pairs of Sofft brand shoes because not only are they extremely comfortable but very stylish as well.
Fit: I recommend trying these shoes on in a store if you can. The toe box is small and you may find that either sizing up will help with this problem, or getting the wider width. I got them in a size 7 M (standard) width and they fit me quite snugly. I suspect someone with a chubbier foot than mine, might have a problem getting their foot fully into the shoe comfortably. It’s not narrow width wise as much as it’s just vertically small if that makes any sense. If you are looking for a roomy toe box, then these probably aren’t a good choice for you.
As you can see, these shoes look absolutely fabulous in the sunshine. These are the prettiest red shoes I’ve ever seen… All of the pictures I’ve seen of these online really don’t do justice to the shoes…
Value: Sofft brand shoes are extremely well made and they are known for their dedication to delivering comfortable footwear in incredibly fashionable styles. Perfect for work and office wear or for anyone who is on their feet all day. I would definitely recommend the Sofft Fiorenza to anyone who is looking for a stylish high heel shoe that is also comfortable enough for all day wear. Perfect for an office style look or work.
Versatility: While I absolutely adore the red, I realize not everyone wants red shoes. Don’t worry, you can also get these in shiny black patent and smooth black leather. Regardless of which color you choose, these are the perfect pumps to add to your wardrobe! These shoes look great with skirts and dresses, of course, but they even work with skinny ankle jeans, leggings, boyfriend jeans rolled up, and shorts with tights too.
If you are interested in purchasing these gorgeous shoes, you will be able to find them at several online retailers. The best deal is to purchase them on ShoeMall.com for only $99.95.
