zizis in brown


repetto answered my prayers and made their zizis in brown leather. alas, they're $285, and i was saving up for a pair of ankle boots.

Erica,
Please tell me these fit better than those darn Derringers. I've loved my two pair of Repetto sandals this summer, and I would love to branch out into other styles. BTW, if you want a pair of derringers, I'll send you mine. They HATE my feet. :O(

i'm so sad that the derringers failed you. i'll let you know if i try on the penpal ankle boots, although with our luck....


i don't know what i'm going to do! the zizis are my dream shoes, but my funds are finite. why, repetto, why?

I have the zizis in black, and they are my most comfortable shoes – even more comfy than the Repetto bolchoi & sophie styles. They mold to your feet so quickly, and fit like a glove. They would be a great investment, I think.
I'm loving this rich brown - - kind of wish they had been making this color when I bought mine!

I'd wait and get them on sale. By November, they should be 40-50% off and someone will reduce them.

i tried on the rachel comey penpal ankle boots in black at bird yesterday. LOVE! they are very comfortable, at least to me. and they didn't make my legs look stumpy i don't think. i am definitely going to get them once i have the money.

Looks gorgeous . . . and this is a tricky one, depending on the size it may go fast or survive till sale season. If it is made for dancing it must be comfortable unlike the fashion shoes that concerns itself more with aesthetic than wearability, but I never owned one so I cannot say for sure, and I heard their sizing is a bit tricky.

jenny, so good to hear that you love the rachel comeys. i'm really going to have to track them down in person, or find them online with free shipping and returns.

the zizis are super soft but not too 'dance shoe-ish'. i think i would be a 39.5 or 40, which are both sizes that sell out quickly since they run small.

what to do, what to do?

I have been waiting for the Rachel Comeys for sooo long. I remember they had the same style (tassel free) last year in different colors, and I especially loved the burnt orange... it was patent, I think. But now that's gone and I'm so glad they have a navy version! Unfortunately, RC shoes tend to be problematic for me because they seem so narrow. I bought the short RC Mars bootie but had to send them back for this reason.

As for Repetto, I always lust, but they too never work for me. I always feel like every bump in my foot is accentuated! Maybe the leather will seem less thin. Let us know what you think!
