Are They Worth The Money??
I’ve done a couple of specific designer product reviews (all linked below) and they’ve been a huge hit. So for my next review, I thought I’d tackle the popular Mach & Mach Crystal Bow Heels. You’ve probably seen these heels (or a similar style) while scrolling through your Instagram feed or watching your favorite TikTok accounts …and you may be wondering, “Are they worth the money”?? I’m breaking it all down for you below…

5 Rare Luxury Designer Dupes You NEED: Look Expensive On A Budget With These Pieces
There are quite a few style options available by Mach & Mach. They have everything from pointed-toe pumps to mules to slingbacks and more. The crystal bows have quickly become a popular and easily recognizable detail in the fashion world. The pair of sandals I bought are the triple bow square-toe slingbacks. But some of the other popular shoe styles you may recognize are the Double Crystal Bow Pointed Toe Pumps, the Crystal Double Bow Square Toe Slide Sandals, and the Crystal Double Bow Pointed Toe Mules. You’ll notice they all have the gorgeous crystal bows but some of their other styles also have beautiful pearl details like these.

Mach & Mach Break-In Time
Break-in time is a big deal for me…I don’t have time for uncomfortable shoes! Like you, I’m a busy mom, wife, juggling a thousand things. There was NO break-in time for these Mach & Mach heels. I’ve bought a lot of designer heels over the years, and I would say these are the most comfortable out of the box. I would happily wear these to a wedding and not even think twice. Note: I can’t speak to the comfort of all the styles, but this pair is really comfortable and manageable for heels!
Mach & Mach Sizing and Fit
They come in EU sizing, which can be confusing. Most stores will give you a size breakdown, but I still want to give you examples in case you’re confused…
EU 36 = US 6,
EU 38.5 = US 8.5,
EU40 = US 10
…and so on.
My usual shoe size is 7.5 and I ordered the EU 38 because Nordstrom’s site said they run small and suggested ordering 1/2 a size up. The EU 38 fits perfectly. I also wanted to note that they’re easy to get on and off, feel secure on my foot, and I don’t even have to undo the strap… I just slip them on by pulling them over my heels. That could be different for everyone but they’re super easy for me.
How To Find Discount Mach & Mach Heels
I know these shoes are VERY expensive so I wanted to share ways that you can pick up a pair for less.
These shoes don’t really go on sale so try finding them at online consignment, resale, and/or discount stores. You can check Vestiaire Collective for flash sales. Find big selections at Farfecth, Net-A-Porter, MatchesFashion, and Nordstrom.
If you still don’t want to spend the money, there’s are a few look-a-like options out there that I’m sharing below…
THE VERDICT: Are They REALLY Worth The Money???
Simply put, the Mach & Mach sandals are beautiful. I love looking at them on the shelf. When the sun comes through the window, they catch the crystals and shine so beautifully they look like glitter or like some sort of Instagram filter. They make me happy when I look at them and when I wear them. It seems like they’re Cinderella slippers that have transformative powers that make me feel incredible every time I put them on. Right now, in my style journey, I’m investing in pieces that will 1) last many years, and 2) make me happy. These shoes do both of those things. So for me, I think they are worth the money.
