I am so excited to have finally found these Valentino Rockstud heels! I had two dilemmas when it came to purchasing them: heel height and sizing.
I am usually a minimum of 10cm heel height type of girl. This pair is only 6.5cm. I prefer the three ankle strap design over the two ankle straps. For me the two ankle straps cut off at an awkward height at my ankles. I thought the three ankle straps looked more flattering on.
Secondly, I read a lot of reviews online most of which mentioned these run small in size and it is best to go up half an size.
I am normally size 36.5 but I ended up ordering size 37. I was anxious to receive them but when I tried them on to my relief they fit perfectly.
There was no question about what colour ankle straps I wanted; nude of course! It elongates the legs which is especially important given these heels are medium in height. Also I knew I wanted patent pointed toes. What can I say, I am obsessed with patent leather heels!
