In truth, I was skeptical about trying out these new offerings in the Queen Transcendent line. The first time I met the original Elizabeth, I thought she was gorgeous, but uncomfortable. When I finally realized that I had to go up a full size (from my usual size 9), I was still doubtful about actually adding anything from this family to my collection. I tend to like a lot of wiggle room in the toe box. The narrow toes are an adjustment for me.
This season, there are some major additions to the Queen Transcendent line. Since its arrival with the signature heel, this has been incredibly popular. Though I do not own a member of this family (yet), I decided to give this season’s offerings a shot.
I tried on the Escarpin in size 9.5 and these seem to be a perfect fit. (That means you should size up 1/2 a size.) I was surprised that they were really comfy. Compared to the original Elizabeths, the new Queen Transcendents seem to run slightly wider, making the toe box roomier and thus, making my feet happy:) The glittery finish is gorgeous! Coupled with the heel, this is definitely a head turner.
I also tried Victoria on in size 9.5 and they were perfect. Again, I had to size up 1/2 a size. I love the green on this boot. Yes, since it’s a boot, that means the fit on this is very secure and for me, is the most comfy Vog in the line. I’m not sure if this goes with anything in my wardrobe. However, if you’re someone who likes a little bit of vintage with a dash of goth, this totally fits the bill!
Finally, I decided to try on the Elizabeth in this season’s new color. Purple is my favorite and I’m a total sucker! One thing you should know about these is that the heel is purple. It’s the only one in the family without a black heel. I tried these on in size 10 (a full size up). While I think these are gorgeous and more comfy that I had originally thought, I’m going to have to just look at them in adoration. They’re so pretty, but I’m not sure what I’d wear with them.
I know many of our readers are fans of the Queen. For those of you who are, I’m sure you’re going to fall in love with the new additions:)
