These are really cute little shoes
! I got them to wear to a trade show in Las Vegas with some pants that are not long enough to wear with taller shoes
. They required no break in, and they have adequate padding under the feet. If you are someone who needs arch support, you will want to put an insert into the shoe. They are very cute, and look smart - I was a bit concerned that they would look like old lady shoes
(I'm 32), but the little metal rivets make them look a bit more hip. And, I drive a stick shift car and tend to wear out the back of my shoes
quickly - the backing on these comes in handy for me in a very functional way! My only complaint is that the synthetic material makes my feet get really sweaty in the shoes
on a hot or humid day. I didn't notice this while wearing them in the air conditioned hotel trade show environment. Because of this, they may not be a great choice for someone living in a hot climate.
