Just wore these beauties to 3 weddings and I can truly say I never even thought about taking them off. The heel is the PERFECT height! As someone who is tall, I always struggle to find a shoe that look pretty on the foot without being too tall, and these fit the bill in all areas. The silver is bright and beautiful and they look so stunning on. Wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the square toe, but since I went with my true size there was the perfect amount around the toe, not too much. I am usually a 9 in sandals/heels and a 10 in sneakers/boots, and went with the 40. Truly so comfortable all day and night - I got so many compliments! Was nervous to splurge for the wear and tear I knew I was going to put on them, but the quality of these are BEYOND, the leather is butter soft and I can tell they are going to last. These may be my first pair, but they are definitely not my last! Cant wait to try the sandals and boots.
