Which did happen by the way :)
Image below is the Steve Madden P-Heaven flat in black patent. I have this shoe in a deep purple as well and has been one of my favorite go-to flats for the past 5 months. I found 2 pairs of this, the other in a nude to which my friend happily purchased as well. Priced at $25 dollars it was none to shabby. It's also currently available online at Famous Footwear for $54.99.
What I like about Steve Madden flats is that it's comfortable and doesn't cause me blisters even though I've been on my feet all day. It may not be the longest lasting shoe in the world, but if you take care of it, it'll last longer and you'll enjoy many many days in comfort!
