So last December, I ordered these babes from Karmaloop. The fabric was bubbly and warped, so I sent them back for another pair. It two about two/three weeks for me to get my new pair, and they were the black suede. I called to tell them they made a mistake and they said sorry, but the checkered ones were sold out. Sadness! So I just kept the suede. But now! They’re back on Solestruck! And on sale. So I ordered the 7 because the 6.5 kind of hurt my toes. The 7 are too big, so I’m just sending them back for a 6.5. The crap I’ve been through JUST for these shoes is almost at an end! Hopefully by next Friday, they will be mine! Properly mine!
