Remember when I gave a sneak peek at my new Abel Munoz shoes? Here's my full review!
Before I begin, I want you to know that Abel Munoz is not only an extremely talented shoe designer, but is also a genuinely kind person who takes the time to answer emails. So if you like what you see, and want to get in touch with him, send him some fan mail!
Abel Munoz is a couture shoe designer and Costa Rican native based out of Toronto who understands the power heels hold over women. His shoes are sassy, yet refined and beautiful, made for women of “any age who love luxury and shoes.” They are architectural, bold and streamlined, a nod to his graphic design background. Abel Munoz is a rising star whose shoes fit right in perched next to any Jimmy Choos or Louboutins.
Part of his Spring/Summer classics collection, the Abel Munoz 'Jackie' shoe is flirtatious and modern. I spent a good five minutes or so just admiring them in the box, the smoothness of the leather, the elegant heel, the ribbon tie. Then, I decided to do something bold: I wore them, straight out of the box. No break in time. And after an hour-and-a-half of standing and getting ready for an evening event, I was amazed to find I felt no discomfort at all. NONE, ladies! So, I decided to wear them to the event, and I'm so glad I did. Not only are the shoes eye-catching and serve as the perfect complement to any spring ensemble (try a bright cocktail dress!), the thick padded platform and supple leather provides endless support and comfort. The only con (and it's a small one) is that it takes a little time to get the ribbon tied straight.
I received many compliments on my 'Jackie' shoes over the course of the evening, and I felt confident and lucky, as if I were privy to the well-kept secret of Abel Munoz. You see, he only has stores in Canada, Colorado and California. But after that night, I have a feeling a few ladies from the party were checking out his site.
Kristen Wiig, Saturday Night Live Star who's also starring in the new comedy Bridesmaids, has been spotted in the 'Jackie' style. Shania Twain and Jeanne Beker (Host of Fashion Television) are also fans. Visit www.abelmunozaccessories.com for more information and to find a store near you. I highly recommend Abel Munoz shoes to all of my shoe friends looking for high heels that don't hurt!
