Groove is releasing a new line of stuff for Pullip called MIO (short for Make it Own) items in the line include everything from blank doll kits to shoes. GrooveUSA very generously sent me samples to review here on my website this is the second part of the shoe review. If you missed the first part don’t worry it can be be read here. This post will focus on the Taeyang shoes as well as how well the Pullip shoes do or do not fit the rest of the Pullip family.
Probably one of the most asked questions I have received about the MIO items is how well do the Taeyang shoes actually fit as some of the stock shoes are so tight that they basically require you to slit the shoes along the back if you want to get them off and on easily (using a hair dryer to warm up the shoes is also a popular method of getting ill-fitting Taeyang shoes off/on). Today’s
victim volunteer for the shoe photos is Taeyang Kaito.
How well do they fit Taeyang? Fairly well, they come pre-slit in the back. Kaito is wearing socks underneath and they were still fairly easy to remove put on when he wasn’t wearing the socks I had no issues getting them off and on.
How well do they fit Taeyang? I’m happy to report even while still wearing his stock socks, the tassel shoes were easy to put on and easy to take off. I didn’t even have to resort to using a hair dryer or slitting them along the back they actually fit!
Set 1- Engineer Boots x Rubber Soles shoes
MSRP– 1890 yen
How well do they fit on Dal? They are a bit big on dal but not terribly so, they could certainly work on dal if you want them too.
Please note that the high heels were so comically over-sized on dal that I didn’t bother photograph them.
Please note neither pair of shoes in this set fit Isul.
How well do they fit on Dal? Not very well at all, they are way too huge for Dal even with leggings 😦
How well do the fit on Dal? The boots fit on dal rather well, upon closer inspection they appear to be a repaint of Dal Natalie’s shoes with a bow added.
The Boots did not fit Isul so I didn’t bother trying to photograph them. The strap shoes however….
More pictures of the shoes are available on my flickr.
