The Naked Stud

Category: Pumps (covered), 5-inch heels (I measured)
Bought from; when: The Fashion Barrage; September 2010
$$$: RM120 (excluding postage) I think? Can't remember
RESELLING FOR: RM110 with postage!
I bought these for two reasons. Reason #1 - I needed a nude pair (they look pretty nude on a typical Malay girl with tanned skin like me), and reason #2 - the studs seemed fierce (I was going through the everything-must-be-studded mania at that time). I was pretty ecstatic when I first laid my hands on them, because they were visually perfect! Smooth nubuck suede, sturdy ultra-high heels, comfy padded insoles and immaculate workmanship. The seller was pretty efficient in answering all my queries prior to purchase, and after paying, I got them the next day. I tried them on, and I found out they were about a size too big (they are US10) for me - bummer. So I bought the gel thing you stick at the back to make them fit better, but it didn't work. THEN I noticed that the insoles have these tiny, tiny micro-holes, like pig-skin lining. I did some research, but still couldn't decide whether they are really made of pig-skin lining or not, and I did not have time to ask a professional (read: cobbler) about them. So, I think I'm gonna resell this pair. I'm so reluctant actually, because I've been looking for a nude pair everywhere, forever. If only they are a size smaller, and don't have those tiny suspicious micro-holes..
So, do you know anyone who might be interested in them? Guaranteed like brand-new, except for a few VERY faint scratches on the purple outer soles, and a missing stud on one side of the heels (already missing when I got them from the seller). Buzz me!
