Esoteric Temptations | Ros. Size 10 (but I’d likely need to size down to 9.5). Apologies for the strange picture above. It’s been a while since we’ve done the FlueReviews, so getting into the flow of what/how to take pictures of the Vogs takes a little but of getting used to. In fact, if any of you have suggestions on what you want us to show you in the pix (such as more sole, side, or top views), please feel free to let us know (via comments, email, etc.). Moving on….
As I have said countless times, I’m not a pointy toe gal, so I knew that Ros and I wouldn’t necessarily be good friends. While we wouldn’t necessarily sit at the same lunch table, we would definitely get along as genuinely good people. Yes, Ros is genuinely good folk. First off, she’s HOT!!! If I’m being honest, I’m pretty sure I can’t pull off something this sexy. I just don’t have the wardrobe to give this gorgeous Vog the respect she deserves.
OMG. Both the black and pink (I call bs; it’s red!) iterations are simply divine. Please note the detail on the heel, the different textures on the leather straps (they seem to be suede and patent leather, while the body is regular leather), as well as the hardware on the buckle and down the top center of the shoe. Of course, the Swordfish toe makes this a chic rocker/goth addition to your collection. For me, Ros is a no-go because of the pointy toe and the heel height (I prefer platforms for the heels I wear). However, if you’re a pointy toe shoe lover and are looking for something with that sexy edge, then Ros is for you. In case you’re near a store, I do suggest stopping by to check her out because the pink look so different in person!
For the love of Vogs,
NB: In Fluevogs, I’m a women’s size 9. Depending on the fit and family, I size up or down from there. For example, in most Minis, I’m a size 8.5. In the Fellowships, I’m typically a size 9.5. However, I do have wide, flat feet and Morton’s Toe, which makes sizing a little strange for me. Admittedly, these days, I like a little more wiggle room in the toes and I don’t like to bother with extra stretching. Therefore, I’ve been sizing up in my more recent purchases.
