I'm a huge fan of the Avery shoe, and previously purchased both the colorblock-suede and the tweed loafer styles. I've been eyeing these velvet pumps online, as I love the shape of the shoe and how it looks retro but modern at the same time. However, I wasn't sure how practical a velvet shoe would be. Fortunately my local J. Crew store carried them, and I was immediately won over by how gorgeous they are in person. The color is the same as depicted online, and looks very rich and saturated in person. The velvet has a slight sheen to it, that deepens the color or makes the color brighter, depending on how the light catches it. The shoe is well made and flatters your foot. I found the fit to be TTS and took more normal size 7. The heel is a comfortable height but the shoe fits a little tight initially, so it will take some breaking in.
