A black captoe bal with jeans??
Should be avoided 100% of the time.
I wouldn't exclude the combo based on the balmoral styling alone. And I avoid absolutes. The setup may be difficult to pull off but I wouldn't dismiss it entirely.
Anyone have insight on the return policies for the seconds that ship to Canada, didn't get my shoes yet but I'm a little worried about the fit. I tried ordered the Kenilworth in 7.5D after trying on some flatiron 7.5d that fit perfectly (8 were too big). I then realized that the last wasn't the same so I dug deeper and finally found a store that had some Kenilworth in Montreal, the 8D, when tied extremely tight seemed to fit OK (i.e. the heel barely lifted).
Having said that, I'm hoping for the best, hoping that the 7.5D will fit but I just want to make sure I have the proper tools to deal with the return if it comes to that. Any insight is welcome.
