I have a massive collection of amazing shoes. Some are conservative pumps, others are sky-high stilettos. There are Tod’s driving loafers. Then there is my “Pieces of Art” Shoe Collection. These are the ones that I keep in clear boxes so I can display and admire them when they are not in use.
The latter are where these pumps are categorized. This pair of YRU ANGL Winged High Heel Pointed Toe Pump remind me of a few decorated high end pairs I have including several from Sophia Webster’s amazing, over the top line. What I like about the YRU pumps is that they are at a price point that they can be worn more frequently, not just on special, “make sure to get my shoes in the picture” occasions. I have a few highly conservative pinstripe pantsuits that the style of the leg is quite long, and I love that I can wear these heels and when I cross my legs these fun, fantastic stilettos peek out from under my pant leg – a bit of whimsey and personality for an office setting. If you have a creative job in a corporate setting, these are perfect.
I tend to gravitate towards thicker heels, so I am delighted that the 4.25” skinny stiletto is as stable. I was able to walk around at a brisk pace (while carrying heavy items) with ease – and not just “high heel” ease. As far as size, I’m closer to a 7.5 but decided to buy the size 8 since they don’t offer half sizes. As with many stilettos with high vamps, it took a bit of wiggling for my foot to get in but fit perfectly once they were on. So if you are a half-size on shoes, I would recommend going to the larger size.
I’m very impressed with the craftsmanship on these shoes: though they are not leather, they look and feel like it. They come in high-end packaging and include extra heel taps to keep your pumps looking and feeling new. The quality of the shoe box is excellent too – reinforced cardboard that is meant to protect the heels and they aren’t crowded in the box at all.
I opted for the black, but they are also available in creamy white if you are looking for a fun and comfortable wedding shoe.
All in all, these are fun heels that are actually quite versatile. The comfort factor makes them ideal for a night out or a long day. But they are definitely meant to be shown off!
