I ordered these for my 18 yr-old daughter who must adhere to a "all black" dresscode for work. These shoes are in my opinion, black. Yes they are silver on the sides - but they are still black shoes to me. They are a stylish wedge loafer. They have a bit of hardware detailing on them at the top of shoe box, and at the back on the heel - which are also black patent (toe & heel). SO CUTE. My daughter was nervous about the silver on the sides - but I wasn't. First day she wore them, her manager said, "Wow, great shoes, where'd you get them?!" Mother knows best :) Oh - and yes, she told me they are comfortable, for being on her feet during her shifts.
I ordered 2 different styles of Aerosoles Women's shoes and received them very quickly.
One pair had no packing or wood stabilizers running from toe to heel. This pair is slightly big so I am thinking someone wore them around the house for a while and then returned them to Amazon. I will keep these shoes, simply because I need to wear them very soon. I am unhappy though, because I wanted unused, new shoes that fit a little snugly, as new leather shoes do.
The other pair I ordered from Amazon, had packing in toes and had stabilizers. This second pair of Aerosoles have a nice "new" feeling fit, and are sized perfectly.
