My friend Stephanie made my day a few weeks ago when she told me that Charlotte Russe has exactly what I was looking for!
Charlotte Russe's Uber Faux Suede Platforn Pump are priced at just $30! They are currently running a buy one, get one for $10 promotion on all styles. You can't go wrong with two pairs for $40. On top of that, if you sign up for their e-mail list you will receive a 10% off promo code. You can get even more discounts with these $5 off coupons (in-store or online).
The only issue is that they do not come in half sizes. I know many ladies will purchase a half size up if their size is not available, but I am not one of those ladies. These shoes truly are exactly what I was looking for so I decided to take the chance and ordered the half size up. Since their return policy allows you to return online purchases to their retail stores, in the event that I had to return or exchange I knew I wouldn't have to pay for return shipping.
They definitely do feel a half size too large, but I was able to make them fit properly with the help of Foot Petals. I added Heavenly Heelz in the back/heel of the shoe and also Killer Kushionz on the soles to make the shoes more snug. The final product? Success! They now fit perfectly and I do not see myself having any trouble walking in them. I am going to test them out tomorrow at work, so if I happen to have any accidents or issues I will be sure to keep you updated.
Of course I took advantage of the buy one, get one for $10 promotion. A review of the second style I ordered coming soon!
