My mother-in-law, who usually has impeccable if somewhat bland taste, swears by the shoes of Stephane Kelian (among others). Which she, of course, buys in New York or Paris. Now, I don't live in either of those cities, and I'm dying to know how these shoes feel. Online--it's slim pickings, although I did manage to find one model on Bluefly, a black or taupe or orange slide, which is fine, I guess, but I was looking for something more dramatic--like these shoes spotted by Shoebunny on Heidi Klum.
The point is, my mother-in-law had to suffer because of ill-fitting shoes--pointed shoes, to be exact, and had to have a pinky toe removed, or half of it, I can't remember, so bad it had become (I think it was hammer toe, if I'm not mistaken). Since that surgery, many years ago, she's only chosen very comfortable shoes--you know, Gucci loafers, Mephisto walking sandals, Stuart Weitzman shoes, or Stephane Kelian. She swears by this last one as being super-extra comfortable and stylish.
Anyone had any experience with this brand? Tips? Any online place I can get it from?
