    If our concept of self is defined by our perception of what others think of us, and you're just shallow enough to base your self-worth on what others think about your shoes...then you definitely want this pair for your collection. I've worn them once, and no less than 7 people within an 8-hour space exclaimed with various permutations of "cute shoes!", "I love those!", and even a "*where* did you get those awesome shoes?!" (Only one of these people was my mother, so this purchase can bring with it an element of stranger danger -- consider yourself warned that unfamiliar citizens may accost you with these shoes as pretext.) Poetic Licence as a brand makes shoes whose quality is commensurate with the price: these are comfortable, the heel pitch not too steep, the leather soft, and the colors vibrant and lovely. They run true to size, and seem to be well-made. I'll be buying another pair in blue as well. Yep, liked them that much. Minus the unwelcome stranger comments.

    I got these shoes in green. They ran true to size for me... I usually take an 8 but once in a while I get a 7.5, however in these shoes the 8 was perfect. The toes are not too narrow and have a lot of room which makes them comfortable to walk in. The actual shoe itself is high quality and very soft. The thicker heal makes them really easy to walk in. They are super cute and I would recommend them to everyone!

    Loved these shoes for about a week, until the bottom started peeling off. By about 10 days of wear, the entire rubber bottom had peeled off. Unfortunately I bought these shoes in winter and didn't start wearing them until spring, after the return window had closed. Now I'm stuck either paying to have these practically new shoes resoled, or just toss them. It sucks. Called the company and they said they couldn't do anything except through Amazon, which is no longer an option since I've had the shoes for a couple months. Boo!

    these shoes are so adorable, feminine, yet sturdy and completely comfortable. The leather is supple, so you don't even have to worry about breaking them in. I get so many compliments on them. I would love to own every color of them!

    I am amazed at how comfortable these shoes are! I usually have trouble wearing heels for a long time, but these I can wear while standing for hours and am completely without pain.
    They are also adorable and make my feet look tiny!
    I sometimes have trouble finding the right size shoe in Poetic Licence. I usually wear an 8 or an 8.5 and in these the 8.5 is perfect.
    I especially love these because I love to wear just a jeans and t-shirt and these shoes will dress up a look perfectly!
    Highly highly recommend!

    I love these shoes! they are so beautiful and fit very true to size. I have never, ever worn them and not been literally stopped in public with comments. The other day, I was walking in a parking lot and someone driving by hit the breaks and rolled down the window to comment on how beautiful these shoes are. And - I have them in brown - which I thought was a more subtle shoe! These are a must have. only thing is you need a ball of foot cushion in the sole for all day comfort. If you are considering these, buy them. Also, they just came out with a summer version with flowers instead of houndstooth, which I can't wait to purchase!

    I own these in green. They are more comfortable than I would expect given the height of the heel, and they look great. For me these did run a little small; I had to go a half size up from my usual.
