AWW YEEEAH - I went for the patent leather ones and I am in looooooove. Emily and I are planning on going grocery shopping in them just for the hell of it (and to get out of the apartment for a bit). YES they are as comfortable and wonderful as everyone says they are. These will be perfect for going out in winter - I'm really happy I purchased these! Emily's aunt and bébé cousin will be arriving home soon so we have to do that panic super speed cleaning up and the head down to Whole Foods (yummiest food EVER).
