There really are no words to explain how absolutely frustrating it was to try and hunt down a pair of Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers (especially black) for the past few seasons/years. I either couldn’t find them, missed them, or couldn’t afford them. I was determined to get my hands on them this time around, and with the help of wonderful Mandi (findmeamuse), I did! I passed my name around to boutiques around the world like hotcakes, and it was done. I don’t know which was harder, tracking them down or waiting months for them to finally arrive!
They are beautiful. Gorgeous. >Insert whatever adjective relating to amaziness here<. I was a little skeptical of the python print at first, but the execution is second to none. It’s subtle, but obvious enough to add just a little bit of texture. I’m waiting on 2 other colors, since I couldn’t make up my mind, but the black Bazil is doing an excellent job of convincing me.
For anyone who’s confused by the sizing, these sneakers are in EU sizes (printed on the shoe & box), not FR. I’m a size US 9 and ordered a 39 & 40 since there were conflicting opinions, and I decided to stick with the 39 (I’m also a 39 in the Bobby sneakers). My feet are a medium width, and the 39s are a good tight fit with thin socks, whereas the 40s fit well with thick socks. I was told they do stretch out a little with wear, so away the 40s went to another lucky girl (or guy too, apparently!). ;) That being said, it all boils down to preference of how you like your shoes to fit.
I’m also waiting on a pair of the Betty sneakers in black, due in by the end of this month. Horrible. I know. I have a problem. There’s going to be a lot of back and forth going on in regards to narrowing down what to keep, and I’m sure my bank will hate me (if they don’t already). XD
