I love these shoes. They look just like shoes I have! My favorite thing about them is that they slip on really easily but stay on well at the same time which is a rare combo with AG shoes! I kind-of wish they made them in a more neutral color because the periwinkle is pretty random and doesn't go well with a lot of things - I'd like to be able to use them with more outfits. I agree the price is steep but I got them as a surprise gift so I don't really have a comment there.
