Shoe Review: JG Shoe Lace-Up Sandals9:00 AM
Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share a pair of shoes that I'm currently obsessed with at the moment. These black lace-up heels can add an edgy element to even a simple outfit and I'm a big fan of mixing edgy and girly pieces.
I first saw sandals like these on Wendy which were designed by Schutz. Unfortunately, my Cinderella feet are too small to fit the smallest size available so I commissioned my favorite petite shoe-makers at JGShoe.com to create a similar pair for me and I am totally in love.
Here are a few similar options:
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen them from this casual outfit. I also wore them with my Yumi Kim romper in my New Media Rockstars photoshoot. Not kidding, these sandals are so easy to pair I was surprised!
As you guys may know, I am quite petite and have difficulty finding shoes in styles I like at my size which is just a touch below a women's US size 4. Considering most shoes start in at least a size 5 or 6, it goes without saying that the selection at size 4 is often sparse and expensive. Pumps in a size 4 slip off my heels entirely so I began searching online for a petite-specific shoemaker and stumbled upon JG Shoe.
When I was in South Korea this Summer I actually got the opportunity to visit the JGShoe headquarters (more on that in a vlog coming soon) and talked with the founder about creating custom-designed shoes in my size. After sending a few photos and instructions to create them in a comfortable 8cm (3.15 in) heel, this is what I received in the mail and I've been smitten ever since.
The back of the heel has a zipper which helps the lace-up element to be less of a pain to get in and out of. You may also notice they also came with a bright red sole which I didn't request (don't want to step on the toes of Louboutin lovers out there), but they assured me that it's easily switched out and future orders won't be made red.
If I were to make any changes with the order, I would've gotten this style in a 9cm heel instead since the laces make the shoe very steady and comfortable. In fact, I may reorder this again in nude and do that very change. Overall, I am incredibly happy with the comfort, quality, and look of these shoes and wanted to share in case some of you have small (or large, since they customize in almost any size) feet.
I also wanted to share a coupon code for my readers for 10% off your order at jgshoe.com: frmheadtotoe10. I don't personally get anything from the coupon, it's just something I thought would be special for you guys. Hope it's helpful for those of you struggling with finding custom-sized shoes like me!
