The Gianvito Rossi heels has been on my radar for sometime. They are definitely the most comfortable pair of heels I own. They are a stunning 105mm pair of high heels. The design of the shoe is absolutely a work of art. The arch makes your legs look a thousand miles long and not to mention the clear sides give it that extra sexy feel while keeping it classy.
I have researched a lot about these heels and for me, I do think these heels run a bit smaller than normal but not a lot. I am usually a 6.5 US but I tried both a 6 and a 6.5. While the 6 is a slightly tighter fit, the 6.5 was a tad too loose for me.
The heels are definitely designed for slimmer feet. This is an opinion personally but I do feel based on the shape of the shoe, the shoes are catered for slimmer feet sizes.
The comfort for a 105mm sky high pair of heels are amazing. They feel extra sturdy, well balanced heel so your weight is not gushing to the front and the plastic sides do not cut into your feet. I was a bit skeptical about the sides but they ended up fitting extremely well.
Christan Louboutins vs Valentinos vs Gianvito Rossi
For me, it was down to the CL and the Gianvito but in my opinions the Gianvito definitely takes the win for comfort and style. While CL has the iconic red sole, the comfort of them are just… not there. I’ve also looked up multiple reviews online and the majority of the girls do say, they are one of the most painful pairs of heels they own. Hands down Gianvito is the best investment purchase I own so far.
How do you afford a pair of Gianvito?
Yes, the prices are steep. They run for approximately $745 USD, $996 Canadian at retail price. To get steals on this, you need to get on FarFetch. FarFetch is an online retailer with shipping and free returns. Every so often, you will get deals sent to your inbox notifying you about recent sales. I got mine for $530 USD after shipping which is 30% off the retail price. Plexis are included in the sale but I have yet to see them for cheaper than 30% off. As well, they are getting more popular so prices are prone to increase for these heels.
