Review: Chelsea Crew Sergi heels from Royal Vintage Shoes

Today I’m bringing you my review of the Sergi heels from Royal Vintage Shoes. Read on to find out why they’re so amazing, and why I had to have them in both colours!

The Sergi heels are available in red and gold. I just got the red first because the gold was sold out in my size, but as soon as they were restocked I jumped in and got the gold as well. The red is a slightly darker red, which is perfect for winter but I find they go well with my brighter red clothes too. The gold is a little brighter than the Gatsby heels, and just right for topping off an outfit for an evening out (or for work if you’re like me and see gold as a neutral).

The Sergi heels are a t-bar heel made from faux leather. Like all Chelsea Crew heels that I’ve experienced, they’re made to last. I’m especially impressed that this style has a really squishy insole, which makes them super comfy! They are have a 3″ heel which means they won’t kill your feet at work, but makes them elegant enough to wear with a cocktail dress for an evening out. The strapwork at is beautiful and covers your toes enough so you can pair them with tights in winter to make them the perfect all-year-round heel; hence why I had to have both, and I hope they make them in more colours!

Chelsea Crew sizing ranges from US5/EU36 to US10/EU41, and the Sergi heels are no exception to this. I bought the US6/EU37 in both the red and the gold, and being my usual Chelsea Crew size it remains the perfect fit. The Royal Vintage Shoes site confirms that most customers should stick with their regular size, and the heels have buckle closure to ensure you don’t walk out of them.

These beauties retail for $65USD through the Royal Vintage Shoes website, which is such good value! They will kindly deliver all over the world, and I recommend getting in quick because they are selling fast!

We had been at the Classics Museum Calendar shoot and she was lovely enough to let me keep my hair and makeup from that for this shoot. You can check out her business page for Debonaire Do’s here!
