*UPDATE* So I finally had a chance to wear my Sherona Wedge Sneakers just yesterday. Since we were celebrating my cousin’s bday, it was the perfect opportunity. When I first put them on I kinda of felt empowered, but in no way a sexual way. LOL. I felt tall and confident. Everything a woman in these times needs to be. I know that might sound a little silly! But, it could be my age that makes me revolve around being so independent and strong. Strange how fashion can make oneself feel so beautiful! Fashion sets us apart from others, makes us feel unique. It’s one of the best ways to express yourself. I have to say this because it seems to be a problem amongst girls/women nowadays; even if you wear the same top or style as another girl, it doesn’t mean you are copying each other. It’s going to look different on you as it does on her. No one is exactly the same even if you are twins. So, flaunt what you got with confidence, dear! Little bit of a random tangent, nevertheless pretty important, back to the review!

Time for a little back story, JustFab.com is an online monthly subscription service. They’re plenty subscription services out there nowadays, some of the popular ones include, LittleBlackBag, Glossybox, Birchbox, Beautybox, JulepMaven, ShoeDazzle, JewelMint etc. They are so many that it’s pretty hard to catch up. I’ve heard they even have food related subscriptions now! I would totally sign up since I’m such a foodie, but I’d be totally broke! Hahaha! Anyway, JustFab is a website that sells fashion statement items such as shoes, handbags, apparel and accessories at a reasonable price. Kimora Lee Simmons, former model and the creative force behind the brand BabyPhat, is President and Creative Director of JustFab. She states that fashion shouldn’t have to be expensive in order for one to look amazing.

Now that you know an overview of JustFab, I want to say that I really enjoyed buying these shoes. The website is clean, color-coated and really easy to navigate. Plus, the reviews from actually buyers were extremely helpful. I would talk about JustFab more but I feel that you, my dear readers should check out the site and see for yourself. It’s quite fun taking the style quiz too and see what they pick out for you. Btw, I’m not sponsored by JustFab! These are just my own opinions.

Wedge sneakers have actually been popular in Asia for a long time. Yet, the trend is just coming here to the US. I’ve always wanted a pair, but I couldn’t find any that I really loved. I wanted a unique looking pair of wedge sneakers, even though the styles that are typically in department stores appealed to me. When I saw these bad boys on JustFab, I instantly gravitated to them. They looked different from the wedge sneakers I had seen. More importantly, they were taupe! I love neutral colors, they go with everything! After reading the reviews, I couldn’t help buying a pair and the price just beckoned to me. I paid about $21.75 USD. It would have been less but since I live in CA, I had to pay extra taxes. -.-;;;;;

I had to wait about a week and half to receive my package. It was quite a hefty package at that, I thought it didn’t belong to me at first. It came with my Sherona Wedge Sneakers, of course, a catalog and information about returns and such. When I opened the shoe box, the shoes were wrapped nicely in tissue paper and my very first impression was, “Wow, it’s just like the shoe I saw online!” I was quite pleased, because even the color was true to the picture. I saw a review that said it was more of a green than a taupe, but I completely disagree with that. Maybe from afar you’d think that, but these shoes are definitely taupe. I saw a few inconsistencies but nothing worthy of disdain, so I was happy. For the price, I honestly wasn’t expecting anything amazing. I used to order from wholesale sites and it was definitely cheap but when I received my items, they were definitely cheap. Lol. You get what you pay for as they say. But these shoes, they looked expensive and when I put them on for the first time they were surprisingly comfortable! They were squishy, almost padded. The first time I wore them, I didn’t wear them long enough to say they are comfortable in the long run. The next few times, I’d wore them to run errands and my feet were completely happy campers. No pain whatsoever! I went grocery shopping just fine with these babies on and I was even able drive them on without the high wedges bothering me too much. What I really love besides the fact it is very comfortable to wear is, that you can wear them down, for say, everyday looks and dress them up, for say, going out with the gals. Multifunctional! Who doesn’t love that? More bang for you buck! Plus, they make you feel tall without making you feel like your going to fall on your butt if you take more than five steps. The heel is about 3”. So it is great for shorties, like myself!

Bottom Line:

Price: Definitely a steal!

Versatility: Great for everyday wear, parties, casual events or going out on the town with the girls.

True to size: Some people had problems saying the shoes were smaller or narrower than usual and that you should order at least a half a size up. But, I’m usually a solid size 8 and I did not have this problem even though I do have wide feet. These shoes did not squish my wide feet at all. Some reviewers, also said you need to wear thinner socks to wear with these shoes. But, I used my regular sporty everyday socks, which have a pretty good thickness to them, and I had no problems. Good to note, however.

True to picture: Yes! It looks just like the picture you see on JustFab. The color, the laces, everything! I was quite pleased.

Comfort: I would say these are pretty comfortable! I went shopping in them and ran errands all day with them on. My heels started to feel a bit comfortable after like 6+ hours, but not to the point where I felt that I needed to take off the shoes. It was just a feeling of being on your feet all day–just tired. Then again, all shoes would feel like that after wearing them all day.

Would you recommend this shoe: This is a question they ask other users who’ve purchased that shoe in particular on JustFab. Yes, I would recommend this shoe to a friend or even a stranger if they asked. *wink* They have. Hehe.

I hope you enjoyed my latest review. This is Marissa, over and out!

OH! And this gets Mar-Stamp of Approval! Yeaaa! lol. ^^;;;

*UPDATE*

Unfortunately, the Sherona Wedge Sneakers in color I have are now sold out! The black and white color is still available for purchase, if you want this style act fast!
