This shoe is gorgeous on. However, my feet started hurting almost instantly. The problem is the heel height pitching you forward. I used to be a ballet dancer. So, the last thing I want to do is have to stand on my toes again. That's what you'll be doing in these shoes.
I would not purchase this item. I bought them and then did not even wear them because they were so uncomfortable. The only think that is appealing is the shape of the soe the super glossy and very uncomfortableness is not cute.
These shoes will absolutely kill your ankles, make you stomp to walk, and have no padding or support. (I wear lots of 3" to 4" heels so I'm not a prude). They also do not look like mirror-images of each other and are a horrible black plastic. STAY AWAY!!!!!!
the picture of the shoe is very nice but its one of the hardest shoe i have every had to wear. Don't know if is the instep but the shoe is literally impossible to walk in, am gonna try and get a pair of insole to see if that will work but until then i just have this shoe sitting in closet am so disappointed.
These are a beautiful deep gray, high shine pump, so I was happy to order them to add them to my wardrobe. And, I often wear 4 inch heels, platforms and stilettos, so I walk in almost anything. However, these are impossible to walk in. They are at such a steep angle (point your toe as hard as you can and this is the angel), it is impossible to step without having to bend your knee so severely as to almost be in a lunge. It's very hard to describe, and I tried walking all over my office all morning. The only way I could walk without looking like an 8 month old just learning to walk was to move incredibly (and ridiculously) slow so as to barely stride ahead more than 10 inches. I had to go home at lunch and change my shoes. Seriously, your foot is at such a sharp angle, you simply must plant your foot flat, there's no way you can stride, which is why it looks so funny. Additionally, the finish catches and smudges against each other. If your feet happen to touch when you walk, it doesn't just brush past, it catches, makes a squeek, leaves a mark and will pull your heel out of the shoe! Unfortunatly, I didn't return mine in time. They'll be going to the Goodwill, although I'm almost afraid to give them away for fear some other woman will try to wear them to an interview!
