lovely shoes, though what do women with foot problems (huge bunions, wide feet, orthotics, etc.) wear?

They’re fab – but I must say I gave up the ballerines a few years ago and now only wear the Gainsbourg ‘Zizis’…

I was thrilled to find the exact pair I wanted at the rue de la Paix boutique on sale near San Francisco months later!

I have 3 pair and love, love, love them!

Enjoy,
