Lolita Rocking Horse Shoes: Ribbon or Leather?

GAH! If has already been posted, delete >,<''

WOAH, FIRST POST *cheer*

Hi,

I was planning to order Loli rocking horse shoes, but I couldn't decide whether I wanted ribbon straps, or leather straps. Considering I never ordered/bought any Lolita shoes TTvTT'' (hehehe, new to Lolita) I thought it would've been a better idea to just ask more experienced Lolitas ^^ What are the pros and cons of ribbon straps? What are the pros or cons of leather straps..?

I was also planning to order shoes from rosechocolat, but I read reviews saying the shoes are bad quality and the heels are made out of foam.. Is that true? o.o Or is it a Hit or Miss company?

Also, where did you get your RHS?

Kyaan~ Thanks so much^^

Here is the Info I collected from you guys! Thanks :)

Leather RHS


Pros:       
  

-Sturdy

-Keeps shoes from rolling out of place

-Doesn't get damaged as easily

-Doesn't untie itself

Cons:

-Seems to roll down socks (doesn't stay up as long)

-If strap snaps off, it's hard to replace.

-Harder to deal with (tying, storing, cleaning, etc)


Ribbon RHS

Pros:

-Easy to replace (it's ribbon XD)

-Light, easy to manage

-hiding/removing ribbon makes it easier for storage and gives some variety in ways to wear your RHS (RHS without straps)

- Don't fall down as easily

Cons:

-Ribbon gets dirty easily and straps need to replaced more frequently.

-Falls down easily (depends on the way you tie it, I guess o.o)

-Harder to lace up (the ribbon is too flimsy)

Of course, most of these Cons can be fixed with the amazing Toupee Glue (sock tape/glue)~
