Review: BCBG Tina's Pump







Omg, I went crazy shopping this weekend!  And per usual, I could not resist buying shoes, but for a good reason this time :) The heels on my old pumps wore away so that the metal bit was sticking out and I despise making that clack-clack sound when I walk (it sounds so...obnoxious), so new shoes were a must.



Anyway, I saw these at Macy's and JC Penny's but were OOS in my size in both! Curses! Then I stopped by DSW and there was one 6.5 size left. Score! These pumps are OOS on DSW's website, so you'll have to go in-stores if you want these. I have also seen these on Amazon, but the seller has marked them up atrociously.







Price: I got these for ~$60.00 at DSW. This was how it was priced at Macy's and JC Penny so I feel like I got a decent deal.



Fit: I swear one of my feet is larger than the other. My small foot fits 6.5 perfectly but my other foot is too big for a 6.5 and too small for 7.0. So basically I just have one uncomfortable shoe, though tis not BCBG's fault. Btw BCBG does not make shoes in wide and the actual shoe is rather narrow. Basically, if you have wide feet, you will not find this shoe comfortable.



Material/Style: A beautiful, shiny patent leather! I love the almond toe, the mini-platform, and the classic design. Can't go wrong with pumps like these. The inside is lined with a super shiny silver material. I kind of wish there was a bit more "tread" on the soles though.  Thankfully, the shoe is cut high enough there is no "toe cleavage" sticking out either (a minor pet peeve of mine).



Quality: Pretty good, what can I say. No wiggling heels, no stray threads. Nothing digs into the back of my heels either.






Frikkin crappy photo....so grainy.



Overall

Almond toes are my favorite style when it comes to heels so yah! I don't have much to say about these beyond the fact they are a classic shoe that is perfect for work. They are pretty comfortable too (as heels go), though I've worn them for only one day so far. I am pleased with my purchase and would recommend them for any career women looking for a pair black heels. However, people with wide feet beware.



Lastly, I have a followup post coming up comparing these and Mossimo for Target shoes....let's just say they look very similar....
