When I was placing my last Royal Vintage Shoes order I couldn’t help but add a second pair to my cart, in addition to the Lorraine heels which I reviewed last week. I am such a BAIT Footwear fan and so I chose their Lacey heel in cream. Read on to find out my thoughts!
The Lacey heel is in an Art Deco-style T-bar design in beautiful cream vegan leather, closing with a gold side buckle. The first time I wore them (for this shoot) I found they rubbed a little just under my ankles, however I have worn them a few times since (with preventative bandaids!) and I think they just needed breaking in as now they barely rub at all. The Lacey also features BAIT’s wonderful squishy insole and a toe area that doesn’t pinch – great for a day in the office or a night out.
BAIT Footwear styles are produced in sizes US6-11, and they go up in half sizes. I wear an NZ6 which converts to a size US6.5; this is my standard size for BAIT shoes, however I have also tried a size US7 (in the Lorraine heels) and not noticed much difference. The heel height on the Lacey is 4″ but with a 1/2″ platform in the front which definitely ups the comfort factor.
The Lacey heels are unfortunately currently unavailable on the Royal Vintage Shoes website, however I’m hoping that they’ll bring them back for the Northern Hemisphere summer as they’ve been very popular. You can follow their Instagram for updates! Royal Vintage Shoes do ship internationally for great rates (considering that shoe boxes are so bulky!), and in my experience they will arrive super fast.
