Eek! I don’t know if you follow Solevoice, but last week I blogged about a shoe that caught my eye and I knew at the instant I touched it that it had to be mine. The first thing that drew me in was the color–bright orange. Oooh! It just got my heart pumping, because really, who has a pair of orange shoes? (Okay, admittedly, I did, but you get the idea.)
I liked that there was a sling back. And a wedge. And a diagonal mary-jane strap.
But, you know, sometimes beauty is only skin deep.
Then I tried on the Palladium Inglewood.
And they were soft as pillows, and the concealed platform made it feel like I was wearing a flat…not a wedge. And, amazingly, the shoe fit my wide foot very comfortably…no crowding of the toes or anything. I totally was not expecting that!
But only the test of time would reveal this shoe’s true character. After wearing these bad boys for almost a full day, the results are in. They’re still fabulous, and here’s a video that’s all about it:
As you can see, there are a few sensitive spots, but it’s overall a rather stunning shoe from a brand I really knew nothing about up until last week.
The Palladium Inglewood is available in both my orange color in addition to walnut on Solestruck.com for $84.95. If you love the black or fancy a gray fabric, you can order them from Palladium’s official Web site.
Four-and-a-half stars! My new favorite pumpkin-colored shoe!!
