Search the internetz for the best deal, of course!
I searched and searched and then I searched some more. At the beginning, it was more out of curiosity. Like, what's the best price I can find out there? Take a look at what I found:
(Prices are shown in € or $ as stated, excluding shipping costs)
Brown Zoenas, €135 down from €225, Net-a-Porter
Studded Georges in black, $338.00, Shopbop
Brown or blue patent leather Cornelias, $200.00 down from $340.00, Piperlime
Studded Georges in grey, $338.00, Shopbop
Black studded Zoés, €225, Net-a-Porter
Pink Zoés, $159.99 down from $335.00, Piperlime
Bow back Cornelias in red, blue or brown, $238.00 down from $340.00, Shopbop
I also found some great prices at Footlux, and some not so great at YOOX, but none of the styles I liked. Same with BarefootTess, Zappos and 6pm. Just don't bother, seems like they stock the styles that couldn't sell anywhere else.
Eventually, I ended up at the Italian on-line boutique L'Inde Store. And there, I found a good deal:
Crimson red Zoés, 50% off, down at €108,00 from €216,00 and with free shipping. In my size.
So, I gave in.
Now, they're home safe, keeping company to my first ones...
The beginning of an obsession?
PS1 Stella, they do run true to size, if not half a size bigger. My ideal size is 38,5 and and all my ZARA flats are a 39. If I could find a 38,5 in Maloles I would buy that, but 39 is just fine too.
PS2 I am yet to find stores that stock Maloles in Greece. I think I'll send an e-mail to the company, to try and learn more info. In the meantime, if you know any actual stores that sell Maloles here, please share!
PS3 I forgot to mention, the shipping wasn't just free, it was super-fast too! Like, I ordered them Wednesday night and the UPS guy knocked on my door Friday noon. Thumbs up for that!
