I brought this shoe about a month ago when they were having the buy one, get on for $10 (it may still be going on) at Charlotte Russe. In fact, I purchased a pair of snake skin pumps along with them (will post soon. They.are.badddddd.). I love the shoe, but I will say that you need to scuff the bottoms really well before wearing them out. I had a nice fall this morning on my walk to the water fountain at work!
