I recently purchased these ALDO pumps with its beautiful crochet overlay and chunky wooden heel. I was browsing the website, and the model on the front page was wearing these and I instantly fell in love. They look totally cute with socks on too, which is a bonus! I would style these with patterned ankle socks rather than these H&M knee high ones, which is all I have at the moment.
One slight problem... The size 7s (which I'm wearing in the photo) are a tad too tight, while the size 8s are a tad too big. The 7s pinch a bit under the ankle bone (which I can fix by loosening the buckle), and they feel like they'll pinch my pinky toe if I wear them for longer periods. I've always said that you should never buy something if it doesn't fit, but I just couldn't help myself! What do you guys think? Keep the 7s, go for the 8s, or just return?
