    YUmmy! Love the pink trim on those! Are they from Tango-wear??? How'd you get pics to post? I've tried a couple of times and can't get it to go the usual way... ( the <img src="stuff"> method).

    yep tango wear! love them only took 6 weeks this time!
    Got them on special offer and persuaded my mum she needed a pair of custom shoes so I only had to pay the special offer price of the shoes!
    I did it as an attachment (scroll down on advanced reply to "manage attachments") and then clicked on the paper clip up on the reply tool bar.

    yeah- it seems like with them- ordering several pairs at a time would be the most efficient method because of the high postage.

    OK- joining in the fray. I have searched the entire north american continent of Comme il Faut dealers for these shoes...and I finally found them. I think they are an old pair from last year (I saw the originaly pair on someon else) and it appears to be a match made by the stars! They *just* fit without being too big and the heel is JUST RIGHT!. Slingback, purple paisley, 3" heel...what else could I have asked for???

    I still can't get the pic to post correctly...:confused:

    Oooh, purty. Not me, but purty.

    That's the same style heel (sling + strap) on the shoes I'm wearing now. Makes your legs look soooooo long.

    love the shape on those heels...

    yep- the stilettos are the best. :) Though, my taste in shoes is VERY girly, sparkle, plenty of flowers and fru fru...not for everyone!

    That's ok...there's room for all! I'm just glad we have a choice now! It wasn't always that way.

    Black patent leather and 4" straight heel not for you??? Too bad.

    Oh, Bastet! They are so pretty!
    Are they from Dance Diva? I was looking at that pair myself, and in the end thought the print was kinda too strange for the shoes... I was oh so wrong! They are cute. Not too much, at all. Just right.
    Next time I know, I will ask for the whole picture rather than making a judgment by a small fragment, lol.

    it'll come up as pop up window becasue I couldn't get it to load in the post so maybe you have disallowed popups? I know how you feel. I work as an artist and so I wear messy, comfortable clothes during the day. Tango is the only time I dress up.

    chartreuse slingbacks? sounds cute!...must go see....

    Yes- from dance diva- she was very helpful on the purple pair, though better at phone contact than email (she travels a lot so has her phone with her all the time). She has a pair of green and gold mary jane's with an exposed arch on one side that sound cool...but I am off limits for some time now.:rolleyes:

    Tango wear made those?


    Giving Comme il Faut a run for the money. I'm definitely going to check those guys out. The shoes LOOK great! Please post and tell us how they feel, hold out, etc?

    tango-wear does a pretty good job. You can also have a look at tangoshoedivas.com for a few reviews. She's bought several pair from them.

    I have a purple pair that is relatively comfortable. Heels a little higher than I like, but they made them to measure for fit. I find them a decent shoe. Could use more padding in the foot but I complain about that in all my shoes. Shipping is a little expensive so it seems people tend to pitch in and buy a couple of pairs to defray the cost from the reviews I've read.

    Wait...I thought they were CiF's. Did I miss something?

    the purple paisley ones are CiF...but I think she may have been looking at the ones from the earlier post with the pony print and pink trim? Was I wrong about that ME?

    I do have a pair of purple and black m.etallic shoes from tango-wear though...I can't pass up purple m.etallic.

    The shoe diva has reviews on shoes and a good source for shoe buying in the US.

    Comme Il Fauts all the way! I've tried them all.... best in construction...sexy & sturdy. They do make a 3.5" heel, it was surprisingly more comfortable than I thought it'd be.
