Casadei Blade Pumps

22 posts in this topic

Recently learned of these and have really fallen for them. Maybe not $700 worth of falling, but still think they are lovely.

The spare heel makes it look like a sketch of a heel, and I also like the juxtaposition of the steel and the leather.

Does anyone own a pair? Are they a joy or pleasure-is-pain to wear?

I have four pairs of blades; Softy metal, Peplum and two pairs in black one of which is patent.

'pleasure-is-pain to wear' as you mentioned.

If you're in the market for a pair then keep an eye out for sales at their online boutique, they have a habit of slashing prices now and then.

Sorry for the late reply

 

I found a copy during the summer from Treds although not so sharp and elegent, I felt quite acceptable.

Slightly tight across the lower foot but stretching and becoming comfortable. Heel balance is good, doesn't feel heavy.

They were sale stock at that time but may still be available. (orig price was £30).

I have a pair too. I posted pictures on the "Who has bought some new shoes" thread.

They are black suede.

 

Beautiful shoes; they run tight so half a size up would be a good choice.

I bought them in Farfetch -they were shipped from Biondini- so I paid full price. But they are worth it.

 

Craftsmanship is excellent. Much better than the Louboutins' I own and similar to Brian Atwoods'.

 

Here, in Argentina, Prüne made a similar shoe but with a wider metal heel looking it from the back and more or less as thin as the blade from the side.

I have two pairs of pumps one pink satin and one red suede with golden trim. Additionally I have a pair black suede overknee boots with front zip and golden lacing and a similar pair of ankle boots. I guess i'm kind of casadei blade obsessed. The boots tend to run a little bit small so i would suggest maybe a half number up. The pumps are better especially the red suede pumps are pretty much true to size.

Hi Amanda, Sorry but tall heels is just not me, I prefer something a lot lower and not so girly. styles I can wear everday, that's the way I am.

Totally love those. At $348 discounted on the pink or the blue, I am really tempted.

There are quite some discounts there at the moment.

I like them, but wish I could afford them!!

Being able to afford something depends entirely on the importance you attach to it.

Quite correct Amanda.

Amanda, you need to post pics of them on

 

 

Thank you for the invite but I don't actually relish the idea of posting pictures of myself here.

Just the shoes.

I'll think about it.
