I'm also VERY pleased to see you are fielding personal shopper requests. For about two years I've been searching for the perfect pair of Navy Closed toe pumps for work. I've searched high and low for the perfect pair. Here's my criteria: 3 to 3.5 inch heel. Round or Almond toe. Leather or patent, No suede. Navy Blue, not royal blue or metallic but Navy. Less than $300 please. If it's over I'd probably consider just want to stay away from the $500 and up range. I always gravitate to pumps like this, just not suede, or these. Thank you in advance for your time, assistance and expertise! Jaime"
