This is the second pair of these shoes I have bought. I loved my old ones so much I googled Ella to see if they did them when the first ones lost their crystals. This will happen again inevitably but that’s the only thing that seems to wear out. My old ones are probably 4 years old. For value for money. I would say I had my monies worth. They are a great fit and feet don’t hang over the back or front. They’re not tight. But true to size. Look lovely on with both casual and smart outfits. I am a size 6 and they are perfect.
