[Bodyline review:] GOLD Double strap 'tea party' Lolita shoes (Shoes251/s522)

Double Strap Tea Party Lolita Shoes [link]
("gld" aka Gold)
[Review of sax blue]
[Review of Silver]

Heel Height: 0.5in (1.2cm)

I always find these shoes to be mega cute when I see them on Bodyline's site and so many girls wearing them made me want to try out my own pair. However I have found that no matter what size I buy they end up giving me a look similar to clown feet ~_~;;

The sizing in these shoes seem to run a bit large. I normally order a 245 (US 7.5) from Bodyline but the sax blues ones I had done so with were much too large on me. Upon ordering the size 240 in gold however they fit nicely so I would recommend ordering a half-size down if a full size already feels a bit large from Bodyline.

The toe box is very rounded and unforgiving size wise if you have longer feet but would seem to work well if your toes are a bit wider. Because the toe box is also rather roomy height-wise it would be very easy to add in an insole into these without totally smashing your feet. The bows are large and cute and I really do like these but I think I'll personally stick to the heeled styles Bodyline has to offer (my favorite being shoe300!)

The gold coloring is very interesting. It's not a flat gold like shoe300's gold and instead is textured with what seems to be a clear protective layer over it. It really helps these shoes sparkle and shine and I LOVE the texture! I really wish Bodyline released more shoes in this gold color!

The newest colors! Gold and silver! 

The gold on shoe251 and shoe300 are very different! Which do you prefer?
