Shoe Lust : Zara Girls’ Combined Glitter Ballerina Flats (2-14 yrs)

I first saw these glitter flats on Wendy of Wendy’s Lookbook and fell in love. I love the black glitter with pink trim contrast. The shoes are not stiff and had the size 5/38 fit out of the box, I wouldn’t have struggled with keeping the shoes as much as I did.

I wear a size 38 in Zara women’s shoes (normally a size 7 in flats and 6.5/7 in pumps) so I ordered the size 5 in girls fully confident that they would fit similarly. I was wrong. The kids size 5 was at least a half size too big for me but size 4.5 was not offered and the size 4 was no longer available by the time I received these.

I was ready to send them back but decided to wear them around the house to see if maybe I made my choice too rashly. It turns out that while the shoes are too large, the ankle straps keep them on my feet relatively well and with shoe inserts the gap can be closed.

After a long struggle I decided to keep them. They have just enough sparkle to liven up days involving running errands. 

Sizes are mostly gone in the larger sizes (except girls size 6, or EU39) but the price has gone down to $29.99. If you have a little one to shop for or have slightly larger feet than me, here’s the link for the shoes.
