I wanted to get a pair of wedges because they are so "in" right now. But truthfully, I'm a flats and sandals girl so I wanted something comfortable. These are great. The platform allows them to look like a decent heel without being hard to walk in. They are very well cushioned and almost feel like a memory foam mattress under your foot. The suede upper is soft and comfortable. I found them to be true to size and very well made.
