One day last year, I saw a girl walking on 5th Ave with shoes on that were the total inverse of the ubiquitous Tory Burch Revas I had seen everywhere. The shoe was gold but the medallion was black. I literally did a double take. It looked awesome. Soon after, I saw those flats online but never pulled the trigger because Revas have never been comfortable for me (I’m the only one, I know). Then I saw these tiny Tory Burch Kitty wedges in gold and a resin medallion (whatever that is) that basically is the same look but potentially without the same discomfort I get from the Reva’s elastic back.
Super cute, right? I was only able to find my size and this color at Jildor Shoes, so if they don’t work, it’s pretty much over. I didn’t think that would be a problem because the insole felt so cushioned and flexible that they were bound to be extremely comfortable. And…did I mention, how cute are they?? Gold is my new favorite neutral for sure.
Unfortunately, even though I got my normal US size, they fit just a little too tight length-wise. I felt the back dig into me every time I took a step. Half a size larger would’ve been perfect I think. Sadly, I cannot find these anywhere half a size larger, so I’m woefully returning these. I’m seriously considering trying the gold Reva version of these because that’s how cute and versatile I think these are. Should I? Hmmm….
Here’s a last parting shot of these way-too-adorable wedges…
