Rated 3 out of 5Â by b5jacks Cute But Could Be Better
I have to agree with the first reviewer on this shoe in all of her comments. What she described was what I found when I received the shoes today. I'm normally a size 7 but I ordered a 6 1/2 and 7 since I knew this brand to run big. The 6 1/2 was okay, snug at the toes. The 7 was longer but would have worked, but they did gap around the ankle and seemed a bit too long.
The leather isn't soft and was stiff. The toe area was not comfortable and felt like man made material. The ankle/ back end of the shoe is very stiff. There is a small indent in the middle of the "platform/flat form" of the shoe you can barely notice in the pictures but this makes the shoe very narrow in the middle going to the heel so for me it made the shoe wobbly and not as stable as a full flat form or wider wedge. If you are used to wearing high heels this might not be a problem. I just like a little more stability for my ankles.
These shoes are a cute idea but the quality for the price point didn't match up for me.

I usually wear 7.5, but on this one, I had to go to 6.5...I don't know if that is going to be the case with everyone...the top part where is ties was too loose, and the sole was too long...and that was a 7! I thought it was going to be too small! The brown wasn't as brown as pictured..I imagined it would be darker, richer,if it were polished up..the leather was really dry...again..don't know if that will be the case with all of the shoes...I liked the style, have a hard time with heels, but am not sure it is at the right price point...I expected better leather..also the shoe is very light...I don't know if I like that...it feels as though the entire platform is hollow, different than a wooden one..maybe some will find that a good thing..

I would never have bought them if they had not gone on sale as the quality is definitely not worth &160.00. But seeing as I purchased them for $50, I cannot be happier. The heel is definitely narrower than the top of the shoe, so be wary when walking around/turning quickly/getting out of the car/running to catch the bus :)
Note: the color on the web is slightly off- it's more of a gray-brown which, in my opinion, works with more outfits. But that could just be me :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by FreeFaery I LOVE THEM !!!! I DO !!!!
I have been searching for a shoe like this for a long time. I love high heal shoes but I have foot pain due to worn out cartilages where my largest toes meet my foot. I can no longer wear high heeled platforms or high heels of any kind. I am able to wear these because I can get the height of a high heel shoe without the slant that puts painful pressure in the wrong place. I hope to see more shoes with heels like these. For me these shoes are very comfortable and definitely worth more than I paid for them. I would recommend these shoes to anyone especially for those of you that may be experiencing similar problems with your feet. I hope this review has been helpful.

I LOVE these platforms; I was too shy in '70's to wear them (I'm 5'9'' !), but I've got to say, these are really hip.
I wear with anything - shorts, dresses, or leggings, you name it!
Sure, they are light, but that's OK as I can really kick up my heals in these!!!!!
One thing, tho, they are rather slick, but haven't taken a fall yet!!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by TaniaM Great platform!
I read the other reviews and was scared to buy them , but I took the pludge and bought then since they were on sale anyways and I loved the look of them. I was suprisingly shocked. They were comfortable, They look so cute on, and they were not hard to walk in as others have stated. I wear a size * and I have a wide foot and they fit great, and look adorable and a bit different then most platforms. The color is a little worn, but it give the show charm, and they are still definitly brown. Overall great purchase!

My biggest complaint with these shoes is the color. I got the "dark brown" because in the picture they are a very warm, chestnut brown. When I received them, I was disappointed with their dusty,dull, almost gray appearance. Also, the snakeskin-type texture on the side is much more pronounced in person. Walking in these was quite difficult, as the actual base of the shoe is quite narrow. I really wanted to like them because they're very cute and different, but just had to return them. They do fit true to size.
