These shoes were the result of a quest – a quest that took about two years until the prize was secured.
When I first bought my Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, I wasn’t necessarily bought in by the designer, but by the look and feel of the shoes. It was an attraction that developed slowly. But when I first spied these Prada, I completely and totally fell in love with them. I discovered them after they were already sold out in stores and a seller on Purse Forum had posted them. They were pricey to begin with and I wasn’t too keen on buying (barely) used shoes. Those shoes ended up getting sold and I was left flower heel shoe-less.
So I began my eBay quest and stalked the site for a very long time. I used these shopping tips to evaluate buyers and set up a saved search.
The months ticked by and several pairs popped up in suitable sizes. The pricing was still quite high and I had to resign myself to the fact that I would likely get a pre-owned pair (ekk, someone else’s foot!) I would also get it at a discount, but it wasn’t going to be steep because the style was so rare and unique.
Finally, I found the perfect pair on eBay. Though they were worn, they almost looked store worn because the wear was so light. The sizing was also right on. It has been hard to find a similar pair of shoes, but I love shoes with three dimensional flowers at the side, like these Stuart Weitzman shoes (please let me know if you see a similar pair of flower heeled shoes).
