I recieved my secret shop teaparty replicas from Muted_Serenades today! I practically pissed myself, there so cute!
Now for the real review X]
I have a size 6.5-7ish US size and my feet are WIDE. I was honestly really worried that they wouldnt fit, like the montreal shoes I had. However that is not the case! They fit like a dream! When I first put them on they were a little tight and my toe touched the tip, but after about 10 minutes of wearing them, theyre absolutely perfect! No pinching and no squeezing♥
They are surprisingly comfy, I love it! I could walk in them for a long time and not have any problems. Unlike most replicas with the unfinished edges, they have finished edges that dont dig into your skin, even the back! The straps dont hurt or are uncomfortable. They straps too are finished.
The straps confused me for a second, cause they have this little tiny metal thing under them and i didnt know why..until i lifted it up and it snapped off. They straps convienently snap to the shoe so that you can make the straps the tightness you want and put them on speedily for the next wear. I love that feature, i hate fucking with straps XD. And of course they have detatchable bows in the front that clip on with little tiny sharp parts to attach to the shoe and stay.
I was surprised to see that the bottoms were rubber and did have a little bit of grip.. i mean theyre no hiking boots but theyre deffinately effective. Ive seen payless shoes with similar traction. (see pictures)
Onto the pics!

Traction: the heel has that weird pebble looking like grip and you cant really see it but from where the first strap is to about the toe is the line style grip, its actually quite nice.
