LOVE these. I'm reading a book right now by Anne Fogarty, and she proclaims that she considers a red shoe to be standard. She didn't like boring shoes! Alas, the two pairs of flats that I bought today were taupe, and tan/white. Definitely standard! And though I love these, I do wonder if the arch is as pronounced as the illustration shows. If so, I would definitely not be able to wear them, cute as they are.
