1.) They're sexy without a doubt
2.) Very comfortable
3.) Beautifully designed
4.) Internal Foot Padding
5.) Platform Helps With High Heel
Please let me explain. I have rheumatoid arthritis, needless to say, I have VERY weak ankles. My doctor once told me my ankles looked as if they would collapse. Being that I have this disability, heels have always been my desire, but never been possible for me. My mother always scolded me for even trying to wear heels when I knew I couldn't. I wouldn't last 20 minutes in heels, not to mention HIGH heels. I've always had to wear wedges instead and even majority of them were a "no-go" for me because of the height. My ankles would burn in them. However, I purchased these shoes after reading all of the great reviews on them and I'm very happy I did!
These are the FIRST pair of pumps (not second...not third...but FIRST) pair of pumps that I am able to so much as STAND in let alone walk in like I own them. *snaps finger* The fact that they are "chunky" or thick pumps helps out with balance ALOT. Not to mention the tall platform attached to the in-step. They feel like 2" heels like another reviewer stated. I'm very excited to have them because like I said, I would see women prance around in their 5+ inch heeled stilettos w/ or w/ out a platform like they don't hurt! I couldn't wrap my brain around it. I've always been slightly self-conscious and fairly insecure and ashamed of my disability because I like to be as feminine as possible. I'm a girly girl and i'll admit it. Every woman wants to feel sexy, like a hot mama at least one day in her life. Heels complete that look. So without me being able to sport any, I've always felt a bit ashamed as an 18 year old college student. BUT THESE....they don't feel like tall heels at all!
Now here are some things I want to let you in on...
1.) The Size: I know people said they run pretty big, but keep in mind that these are sold in only Medium sizes. With that being said, all you narrow or wide footers need to improvise. I, myself, am a wide foot. I ALWAYS have the hardest time sizing my feet because they are VERY VERY SMALL but WIDE. I know it can be frustrating. I can still fit a size 5 in flat shoes but heels are trickier because of the curves the shoe has. Since I am a wide foot, I ordered a 7.5 first...then I thought to myself "these are Medium sized shoes, I'd rather be safe than sorry". With little to no heel shopping experience, I found myself very skeptical to order heels online. So that "better safe than sorry" instinct kicked in. I canceled that order immediately and ordered an 8. Remember that thing I said about wide footers? Well, it worked! I'm glad I ordered an 8! They fit me perfectly with just enough comfort room!
LADIES...you have to remember that EVERYONE'S feet are different whether they're long / short, wide / medium / narrow, chubby / slender. Not to mention everyone's HEEL size will be different from their SNEAKER size. The construction of the shoes are different. SO YOU CANNOT ADVISE EVERYONE TO GO A HALF SIZE DOWN!!!! Buyers, you have to buy for yourself and shop smart. If you know you have wide but short feet, buy for the width, you can ALWAYS make shoes that are too big, smaller with inserts and insoles but you CAN NEVER make shoes that are too small, bigger. (shoe stretches aren't worth it majority of the time). I always say, I'd rather have too much room than not enough. The 8 fit my feet JUST right. ALWAYS buy shoes for your width, the length can always be readjusted. Remember, these are MEDIUM fitting shoes, NOT wide, NOT narrow. YOU have to improvise. I ordered a half size bigger to accommodate my wide width. Narrow footers, order a half size smaller to accommodate your narrow feet. My sister has medium width but LONG feet. She tried the shoes on as well and she fits them PERFECTLY as well. See how it works? She wears an 8 in medium shoes. She wouldn't have needed to improvise for her shoe size like I had to. Now we're both happy! HAHA.
2.) The Comfort Level: When I first put the shoes on, I said "oh yeah, these feel nice". I stood up and walked along the carpet of the dorm room I stay in and felt amazing in them!! They are unbelievably comfortable! I was shocked that they had comfortable padding inside of them. Breckelle's brand of shoes like these were ROCK HARD. Here's the only drawback to walking in these shoes all night, they LACK padding down by the ball of your foot. Everywhere else has nice padding except here. So be prepared to purchase some insertable insole paddings for extra support.
3.) Like many people said before THEY ARE SLIPPERY on the bottoms. I stay in a dorm room with half carpet, half hard rubber floors. So with that being said, you cannot feel the slipperiness on these types of floors. However, I tested them out by taking one of the heels and running the bottom across our wooden bathroom door (in the illusion of hardwood flooring). Would you believe me if I told you the shoe almost slipped right out of my hand?? These are dangerously slippery on hard, slick flooring!!! YOU WILL INJURE YOURSELF IN THESE SHOES. They are a death trap. So like one reviewer said and I completely agree, YOU WILL NEED SOME GRIT TAPE FOR THESE SHOES! You will need some anti-slip tape or something!! These shoes are TOO SEXY to be busting your stuff on the ground in them, especially if you're wearing a dress for the evening. (ugh talk about a ruined night / date). I fault them for making a defective bottom for these shoes because believe me, YOU WILL SLIP. They have NO grip whatsoever. So definitely, before you wear them outside of your home (or on your hard and even flooring) PLEASE buy grit tape and stick it to the bottom of these shoes!!
4.) The Material: I ordered these in size 8 Black - New or something like that. They're the all black suede kind. The heel is even black on them. Now, if you ordered ANY kind of suede you know they're prone to staining right? Especially the light colored suede colors. Anybody here who's owned Timberland boots knows the struggle of keeping suede looking like new! I love the way they look and feel! They're so sexy looking! My comment was "you'd get laid wearing those" lol and my sister said "you'd get laid WHILE wearing those!" they're a man magnet (at least they seem like they would be). But I came up with the conclusion that you shouldn't wear these suede boots in the winter time. Suede is more prone to damage in the winter because of the snow on the ground or the salt on the ground. They tend to get wet, lose dye, or get white stains on them in the winter. So if you aren't planning on being indoors at a concert or party in these, I wouldn't wear them in the winter. They're sexy for parties and concerts but not for casual wear outdoors in the winter. Well, I ended up buying TWO more pairs of these shoes (now you understand my obsession) tonight. I brought the tan leather and the black leather ones. These will do JUST FINE in the upcoming winter. The others will not. Be cautious of that! Next summer, I'll purchase the Burgundy and Royal Blue suede boots, but not this season.
5.) They DO NOT have a zipper. Be prepared to sit down somewhere and unlace and lace up these boots every time you want to put them on or take them off.
Anyway, they're AWESOME shoes! They're my first set of pumped heels that's not a wedge! So I can't express my excitement enough!! Just take my little advice I put above and you'll love these shoes as well!!! They're amazing!!! Remember, be prepared to purchase some grit tape for the slippery bottoms and some foot insole cushions for the balls of your feet (your front right next to your toes) because the boots have comfortable padding everywhere else besides there. You'll begin to notice that hard spot after a few hours. So take note of that! They're tall heels, but they have a tall platform to accommodate you. So beginners don't feel bad, THESE ARE FOR YOU! Just subtract the platform height (2") from the heel height (5") which is 5-2=3" so believe it or not, you're literally only handling 3" heels!! You can do it!! They're so comfy! I just brought two more pair tonight!!!
BUY!!! BUY!!! BUY!!!!
Ps: I am usually a size 7.5 and the 7 for perfectly!!!
I hope this review helped and I hope that you love your shoes as much as I do!!!
Edit- The heel has snapped off after being worn maybe 6 time. Which clearly I am not happy about.
