I got black, pewter, and med gray, and they really match their web pics well. The black is very black with a soft sheen - perfect! The pewter is only slightly metallic, so it is a great neutral with anything. It's kind of a metallic dark gray, pretty much like an antiqued bronze color (the pic of the one that is named "bronze" actually looks more like a copper color). The med gray is not gray - it is really a cool taupe-tan color (as in the website pic) and very neutral like the pewter.
Note: If they feel a tiny bit loose in the slingback strap, try tightening the laces instead of tightening the strap. It really makes a difference!
These heels are an amazing value for the price! Just be sure you can handle the heel/platform height (4.75"), platform weight (not light), and heel shape (not terribly sturdy). I love high heels and have strong ankles, so I am very pleased with them. I can't wait to wear them out to work or for fun! They look especially good with wide-leg trousers or jeans, plus any kind of skirts or dresses.
As a "vertically challenged" (5'4") guy married to a 5'6" giant (HA!), I usually try to avoid heels which are too feminine. This shoe was on sale and the height and platform pushed me to buy them....
The shoe looks somewhat U-G-L-Y in the picture, but actually looks really nice on your foot.
They fit true to size and and the laces allow you to adjust fit along the top of the foot for max comfort and security.
I usually lean towards wedges because the heel tends to disappear under your pants, but the additional height pushed me to ordering these.
If you aren't already a "professional" heel wearer,you need to practice walking in these before wearing them out for a long time. I am quite comfortable in heels, but find that these can be challenging at times, especially when walking down slight inclines and on steps.
I've worn them 3 times now and one night to the casino for about 5 hours. They were comfortable to wear and weren't "painful" but you have to focus on walking naturally...
That being said, the height is truly a wonderful thing. My wife wore western boots with about a 2" heel and these actually allowed me to appear to be about 1" taller than her for once.
I was concerned that they may become painful during the evening, but I stood at the craps table for a couple of hours and roamed the slot machines looking for that winner and didn't feel anything... Calves were a little sore, but that's not the shoe's fault...
If you like and are comfortable in HIGH heels, these are great. A little practice and anyone will love this shoe!
Quality is great, what you would expect from Nine West.
