Shoe Love and More Cowbell posts where I shared my love for the Aquazzura Sloane sandals. I resisted the temptation to pick them up at Neiman Marcus while I was in Georgia and I am so glad I did. As I prepared this post, with the exchange rate they are listed at $595 US or $690.74 CDN and that is before Duty, GST and shipping charges are included. When shopping US sites the markup for Canadians can be nauseating at times and I have clicked many a web page closed due to the price disparity. This was one such case.
Inside the blue wrapping paper and signature ribbon was the most beautiful azure shoebox. Along with the sales receipt there was a personalized "Thank you" note card and information on how to use the free return service if the shoes did not work out for me. I was encouraged to call, email or live chat with any questions or concerns. It seems obvious that customer service is an important aspect of The September and that gives me confidence to shop there.
Upon opening the box: a large cobalt blue dustbag with Aquazzura's signature pineapple motif and an inspiring quip on the inner lid, "If the shoe fits, buy them in every colour!" As if I need any encouragement.
Aquazzura is a new-to-me brand and I'm impressed with the quality materials and workmanship on these shoes. They are flawless and absolutely gorgeous. The suede is buttery soft and the color exactly as expected.
