As promised some pictures of fashion doll shoes from Marcia facetsboutique.com. They are Evangeline Ghastly/American model doll size, and unfortunately they are not a good fit, at least not on the heel feet the girls come with. They might fit better on the high heel feet which are sold as doll option parts and are not part of the basic doll. I will test it later, once I got them. Facets shoes are very thin and fragile, and they are very narrow. They’re inexpensive, though.
The first two are sold as Open toe sandals and Curve sandals for American Model. While both of them are too long, the open toe sandals are a better fit. If you don’t mind that the toes don’t show they are okayish. She can stand in all of the shoes, but the curve sandals easily fall off, they’re too wide as well.
These two are called Sitting pretty and Lace up shoe. While both stay on the lace up shoes give the foot a weird angle – you can see that the heel doesn’t really connect. And those tiny laces are awfully fiddly, the material is downright flimsy and probably tears easily.
These are Gibson calf boots in AM size and as a comparison DeeAnnaDenton shoes from Releaserain. Which go on if you warm them up, but they’re very tight. Once they’re on they look better than all the others, though. The Gibson boots are nice, but the front has an upturn I am not particularly fond of.
I guess it really depends on who makes the shoes if a size fits or not. I hope Iplehouse will adjust the foot size to give customers more shoe options. What’s the point in making fashion dolls with next to no shoe options to go with the fashions?
