J. Crew Martina Patent Wedges in Casablanca Blue

Hi Everyone!

I received the J. Crew Martina Patent Wedges in Casablanca Blue yesterday.  I've loved these shoes since they appeared on the J. Crew website.  I was concerned,  however, about the height of the wedge.  After seeing these lovely shoes in this lovely color on the wonderful shopwithm and the wonderful Dani BP, I knew that I had to try them.  I am SO glad that I did!  Here are a few IRL pictures:





I really like these shoes!!!  I sized up a 1/2 size to a 9.5  

What do you think of the J. Crew Martina Patent Wedges?  Do tell!

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. WMM: I know, this is so out of my comfort zone! These shoes are super comfortable. I don't know how long I can wear them throughout the day, but they are very comfortable.

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  2. Aren't they lovely? I really love mine, although I haven't had a chance to wear them for long periods of time yet. I think they will be quite comfortable though. The color is so pretty too.

  3. Gorgeous! I've really been wanting a pair in the skin tone color, how sturdy is the wedge heel? Is it good enough for wearing to work all day?

    1. Tasia: Thanks SO much! The wedge heel is very sturdy. I definitely think that these shoes can be worn throughout the work day. I rarely wear anything but flats, and I feel confident that I could wear these shoes during my work day.

  4. I love these shoes! I'm in the club with you ladies. I wore the tortoise ones for hours, pushing a stroller in between lunch and a few stores. I had brought backup ballet flats. On the way home I looked down and couldn't believe that I still had them on.

  6. Love the color, and they look great on you!! I don't know why but I've also had to size up to a 9.5 from a 9 recently in J.Crew shoes. These seem like they'd be so versatile...must check them out!

    1. roxy turtle: Thanks SO much!!! I love the color too! I've been moving between my normal size 9 and 9.5 in J. Crew shoes this season too. Please let me know what you think when you check these shoes out!

      BTW: I was in an Anthropologie earlier today, and an SA asked me if I follow Anthro blogs. Of course my eyes lit up! We had a wonderful conversation about how great you are!!!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  7. Rynetta, your feet look sooo good in those shoes, and the color is TDF! I wear 8.5 but I would swear your feet look smaller in them, very pretty. I usually cannot wear J.Crew shoes, the are too stiff and no padding, except of course for Valentinas (but I always have an extra pair of flats/flip flops with me just in case).

    1. ajc: Thanks SO much!!! I was a little worried at first because the initial pictures my hubby took made it look like my toes were crammed in the shoes. I'm with you, this color is gorgeous! And, I'm all for any pair of shoes that make my feet look smaller, LOL!

      Thanks SO much for being here!

  8. Agree with AJC, the colour is UNBELIEVABLE. The high gloss patent "makes" it. I love wedges, I can live in them. What I don't like are platform wedges, where the soles are thickened up front. These look comfy and stylish. Would love a pair in kitty print (a la Gigi's). Thanks for the reviews!

    1. Closet Crisis: I totally agree with you and ajc about the color!!!! It's really striking IRL. I can't do platform wedges at all. These wedges are super comfy!

      Thanks SO much for being here!!

  9. I have a question. I purchased the martina in both the apricot mist and turtle patent. I did size up, but I notice that has the day goes on my shoe stretches out and I have about a thumbs width between my big toe and the tip of the shoe. How much space would you say is too much?

  10. Bronwyn Ritchey: I only sized up a 1/2 size. Did you size up a whole shoe size? And, a thumbs width doesn't seem like too much to me, but it's hard to tell without actually seeing how much room is left in your shoe. I hope that makes sense. I really needed the extra 1/2 size in these shoes. My normal size would have been too small. I hope this helps!

    Thanks SO much for being here!

  11. I hope you still have these. They'll look so good w/the silk moonglow top.
