For my next pair I was a bit more careful. And I did my research. Did you know that Melissa shoes are so much cheaper in the Philippines? It was a test of patience (and how much people love me :p), but it's well worth it. Because lookie what I got!
Melissa x Jason Wu Ultragirl Lace flats. In the correct size, this time. Looooooooooove.
And this is a bit weird, but they smell so good! They have this bubblegum scent that can be quite addictive; I actually had to stop myself from sniffing my shoes like a lunatic. And according to the Melissa website, it stays for months. Too cool.
For rubber flats they are remarkably comfy, although they do need to be broken in. I almost got a blister the first time I wore them, but it was from the friction between the rubber and my skin, and not because of the shoe edges, if that makes sense. But I haven't experienced any discomfort since.
I'm tempted to purchase the other colors as well; they do such an awesome job of brightening up an otherwise gloomy rainy day. ^^
