I don't really wear heels and never something this high. The 1" platform really helps because the heels are actually only 3" high. Also, the platform blends with the heel very well, so they don't look trashy. A size 10 is usually a little small on me, and a 10 in this is almost
a little big. I would say they maybe run a half size big. However, I am happy because I can add comfort inserts and not have anything squished. Also, being a little bigger gives room for my toes that may be squished otherwise. My only concern is that my toes area is a little smooshed, but I think a regular heel-wearer would have no problem. The toe is a rounded like an almond. The shoe in general is almost
a tad bulky, which I love because I am curvy, and they balance my legs out a bit. I haven't worn them out of the house, but they feel much more comfortable than a normal heel. The actual heel is thicker at top and comes to a smaller (but not tiny) tip. I didn't find my ankles wobbly or anything walking around my house, and they usually are. The bottoms are a tad slippery on the wood floor. But for a perfect shoe, I can deal with scuffing up the bottoms before I wear them. I ordered the Gold Glitter color, and they are more of a blonde/champagne gold then a yellow gold, which I love. I wanted something like nude pumps but a little nicer for a wedding, and these are perfect. The glitter sheds a little but not nearly as much as I would expect. Also, I just got them so I am sure it will decrease in time. Still, it's not an awkward amount or anything. Also, I was worried about where I would be able to wear them after the wedding and although they are gorgeous, they aren't as "loud" as I would have thought. I could easily wear them with jeans and a black shirt for a night out. The almost
nude tone of gold really takes them from loud to cute. I have a wedding in 8 days and will be wearing them for 10 hours (and dancing). I promise to update after!
