I found the ‘La Loco’ style on Bluefly.com (http://www.bluefly.com/Velvet-Angels-tan-leather-'La-Loco'-platform-pumps/cat20458/305615302/detail.fly?referer=ca_froogle&cm_mmc=ca_froogle-_-na-_-womens_shoes-_-305615302&mr:trackingCode=B1B1BCDF-6B4D-DF11-BAA3-0019B9C043EB&mr:referralID=NA) and ordered them with the excitement like it was Christmas. When they arrived, I was jumping with joy. I couldn’t wait to feel this extra padding hug my feet. The first day I wore them to work, I was seriously amazed.

This new line of kicks caught my attention because they have this amazing super padded cushion in the ball of the shoe, not to mention they go through the roof on the va-voom scale. The Velvet Angels line is from Irvine, California and they design “luxury-attainable footwear for the sexy woman that has a strong sense of self and is continuously seeking to update her fashion-forward style.” Hello? Have we met?? Its like they’ve known me all my professional life! J
The 5” heel truly did not matter in terms of my comfort level. They have about a ¾” visible platform but they also have another ½”– ¾” platform inside that comprises that additional padding in the ball of the shoe. To add to the yumminess, the padding has a suede-like covering for extra softness. And where do I start on how tall they make me feel?? I can see all the dust on the tops of the cubicles around the office! The fact that they match my skin color almost perfectly makes me legs look like they go on forever - ever - ever - ever... *swoon* ;)
I have to say that after testing these babies out, they really are fantastic shoes. I had some hiccups with my order but the fab team at Bluefly.com and Leslie Nelson, Director of Customer Sales, came through to make me a happy camper. Very special thanks to Leslie and her team at Bluefly.
'La Loco' comes in tan, black and yellow. I’m looking forward to seeing more of the Velvet Angels fashion-forward styles that are all about the pleasure principle.
