BCBGeneration Marci Review
Let’s look at the pros and cons of wearing high heels.
In the pros section, some might say that they make your body look amazing. And it’s true. High heels have the added benefit of elongating the leg, of accentuating the derriere, and of making even the basic jeans feel like a runway-worthy attire. Women like Victoria Beckham and Anna Wintour are legendary for their abilities to wear high heels all day long. But for most of the women out there, high heels are special treats for special occasions.
For some of the ladies, they’re reserved for nighttime fancy outings with the husbands and partners. For some of the ladies, high heels are a staple for a night out with the girlfriends. But there are some brave ladies (like Posh Spice) who wear them to work, to a school run and pretty much everywhere else. The cons of wearing high heels are the constant pain, the blistering and the cramps.
However, let’s look at one fantastic high heel shoe. The Marci model by BCBGeneration. It’s classic, it’s simple and very much beautiful. But let’s dive into the specifics of the Marci pump, and look at the pros and cons of the shoe.
Heel measuring 3 inches in height
The shoe runs a size smaller
A flaw that could damage the overall quality of the shoe. When you’re wearing high heels, and especially heels that are 4 inches in height, every bit helps in order to keep the pain away. The cushioning and the padding are the number 1 remedies for the pain relief, but when they can’t be found in the midsole, it’s up to you to make improve this section. If you choose so, you can put padded insoles that are removable or gel cushions in the toe area that could soften the blow.
The kidskin composes the entire upper’s surface, and one line of small visible thread is seen on the top of the upper. The seam in the upper is perfectly aligned to grab the synthetic lining underneath the upper and the leather used in the upper and fixates the two materials in one glorious unity. If you take a closer look at the surface of the upper you’ll notice that it doesn’t have any type of embellishments, jewelry or beading. Although some of the models will have glitter on the surface of the upper, the embellishments are left out in every possible Marci pump. The pointy toe does look amazing against the clean, simple nature of the upper, and a small gold pendant with the BCBG logo can be seen on the back of the shoe.
The kidskin leather, although very thin is very durable, and so is the synthetic outsole. As opposed to the natural rubber outsole, the synthetic one will get damaged less quickly. That’s especially true for the front side of the upper where the toe area begins. That particular area is the first to come in contact with the terrain, and usually, the first one to get damaged. With the synthetic outsole, you don’t need to worry about that. The durability will shine through as time goes by.
The firm and strong nature of the synthetic outsole, and its durability helps a lot in the stability of the Marci pump, but it’s not always enough.
