Talbots Shoe Reviews

Before regularly reading personal style and shopping blogs, I had never really thought much of or about Talbots.  To me, Talbots always seemed like a brand that didn't carry pieces that would suit my sense of style, but I found lots of accessories that I liked, as well as a few flirty dresses.  Anyway, Ema of My Closet, My Baby, and I always writes about her favorite pieces from Talbots, and her review on the Pointy-Toe Pumps inspired me to check out Talbots' website.  I came across the shoe section of the Red Hanger Sale, and I was so excited to see that several of their shoes come in a wide width which is perfect for my wide (or "extra-stable" as my dad calls them) feet.  

Overall, my experience with Talbots was positive.  I felt the prices were reasonable, the promotional codes excellent, and the customer service helpful.  I will definitely keep an eye on their shoe selection in the future.

1. Pyramid-studded Leather Ballet Flats in Surf Blue ($42.72) - I think the color of this pair of flats is super fun.  These shoes fit TTS, and I do like the pyramid studs. They're made of leather, but aren't as nice as the Studded Leather Ballet Flats.  I think the studs are glued on, and I'm a bit afraid that if I pulled really hard on them (though I'm not sure why I'd do that. :D), they would just rip off.
2. Patent Leather Pointy-Toe Pumps in Cameo Rose ($35.52) - I ordered these shoes in 8W, but they're actually a half-size too big for me.  I've always purchased shoes in size 8, but have secretly suspected that I'm actually a 7.5 in terms of length but need the roomier proportions the size 8 offers.  I ordered them again in 7.5W, and I'll see how that fits.  If the 7.5's end up being too small, I think I'll just use some inserts for the 8W's or something.  Other than the sizing issue, I really love this pinky-nude color.  It's so pretty!  The color doesn't totally blend into my skin, but still elongates my legs.  I'm not sure my photos do the color justice.
3. Studded Leather Ballet Flats in Black ($33.10)- I'm not sure I love these flats.  I think I expected them to look a bit edgier than they actually are.  That being said, these flats are really well made.  The leather is soft and luxurious, but the material isn't supple; it's sturdy and will stand up to being scratched and stomped around in and will still hold its shape.  The footbed seems to be cushioned fairly well.  These flats have a sturdy half-inch heel that adds a tiny boost of height.

If you're planning on placing an order at Talbots, you should try using the code 023087249 for an additional 20% off + free shipping.  I believe you can only use this code once/Talbots account.  The prices I've noted include the July promotion code, as well as my my area's sales tax of 6.25%.


  1. FYI: Talbots is having a secret sale where all of the shoes I've purchased are $29.99. I'm going to call customer service to see if they'll give me a price adjustment! :)

  2. Thanks for the info! I recently discovered Talbots and have been very pleased with my finds there. These shoes are all fabulous. I am seriously going to check out the pointed-toe flats for sure.

  3. I love Talbots shoes, they're so comfy and the deals can be beat elsewhere. Loving the pointy pumps! =)

  4. Great review, Jane! Their "cameo rose" color is really gorgeous...like a pink nude. It elongates the leg nicely! I like the variety of shoes that you ordered. Did they let you price adjust?

  5. @Petite Asian Girl - They didn't let me price adjust, so I ended up just ordering them again & returning the first order. It all worked out in the end. :)

  6. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could
    a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
    two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
