Here are more pictures of the Sam Edelman Noura pumps - I'm not sure why they look kind of dirty brown on lastcall.com's pictures. But the color is "moss green", and it definitely looks green, like these pictures below I got from shoes.com.
This is my second pair of Sam Edelman shoes, and I do highly recommend this brand based on my experience. I still love and wear my Mallory slingbacks allllllll the time, they are like my go-to shoes now. I got these in size 6 since they didn't have 6.5 left (I normally wear either 6 or 6.5 but prefer 6.5) and was worried they may be a little small because my Mallory slingbacks are size 6.5 and I can't imagine those being any smaller. But these are a perfect fit! I say any time you can mix fashion and comfort, a little higher in price is worth it - these currently go for $120 but I think I got them for around $90 because they had an additional coupon code.
Here they are on me:
And here is the Donald J Pliner Pausha:
I guess these may be more bronze than green. I love the shiny bronze details mixed with army green stretchy canvas material. These are very interesting to look at, and they are very very comfortable as well! It may look like they might be hard to put on, but the canvas does stretch (though not a lot). I have slightly higher arched feet, so after a few hours of wearing, I do feel that the canvas part is a little bit tight around my feet. But maybe I need to wear them in more.
These are size 6.5, and they are 4.5 inches high. There is not much of a platform so they actually feel a little bit more arched than the Sam Edelman shoes. But if I wear them out for a night, I have no discomfort whatsoever. I think these shoes look very unique and definitely more classy. I got them for $95 on Ruelala, down from original price of $235. So I think the black ones on Donald J Pliner's website that I linked to in the beginning of the post is a great deal at $89! Black is always nice, and those have a combination of patent leather and stretchy canvas which is fun too!
And they are on me:

So I now have 6 pairs of green shoes! LOL! Maybe it's time to stop...
