Although the pair I received had a manufacturer's flaw, the shoes are cute, sexy, and quite comfortable for such a high heel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlleyKat Such a cute bootie!
I really love this bootie! I am particular about the shape, styling and general architecture of a shoe, and I was beyond impressed with this one's silhouette. It has a streamlined, yet still unique look that makes it incredibly modern. Since I wear a 6, I was pleasantly surprised with how much smaller and more compact the shoe looked in person, once I saw it in my size. It gave me such an elongated leg line even with the chunkiness of a platform style, and I LOVED that!
The hidden platform means that this is super-comfortable. The heel feels low when you're wearing it, but you still get the elevation that makes you feel on top of the world. I feel like a force when I walk in the room and almost like I could do some butt-kicking in these shoes. The material is soft and seems durable and of great quality for the price. I expect the texture to stay more intact than a true suede, whose color can fade in patches after extended wear.
So far, I have worn these booties out running errands as well as to a gallery opening. They were SO comfortable for both occasions that I almost forgot I had them on! I wore them with skinny pants and with a short dress. They looked equally great with both! In the pants especially, they made my legs, which are petite, look a mile long. Just be careful when exposing your ankle with skirts and dresses, because despite the look, the ankle is lower than you'd think. Only really low ankle socks will remain hidden. I would definitely recommend these shoes to a friend if I didn't want to be the only one in town rocking these!
One last thing: They are just a touch too big. Not a half size, but in a typical way with booties since some people wear them with very thick socks.
