they're actually very comfortable without insoles
on October 31, 2015
as other reviews have said, despite the size of these heels, they're actually very comfortable without insoles! the reviews are on-spot with how small they run too. i normally wear a 7.5 in womens' and i ended up grabbing an 8.5. i feel like an 8 would have done well, as one of my feet is far, FAR smaller than the other (to give you an idea: it took two heel insoles just to close the gap on that one foot and it still slipped out, while the other foot fit fine), but i needed them quickly and prime only had the 8.5. the bow's a little flimsy, but i frankly needed them more for the platform, height of the heel, and the smallness of the toe more than the actual style, since i was modifying them for a costume.
i never expected such large heels to fit so nicely right out of the box, though. i only tested them for a maximum of four hours, but i'm sure i could've gone far longer. they're very, very nice shoes! however, if i DID have to peg one complaint, it's that the material doesn't hold up well. scuffs and bends stay in the material forever and give it 'crows feet,' if you will, where the damage occurred. but that wasn't really something that was a problem with what i needed them for, so i don't mind. someone else surely might, though.
