These heels are perfectly gorgeous and comfortable! Based on some of the reviews, I was really worried that the toe box would be super-cramped, but it was only a tiny bit tight on the toes of my bigger left foot -- nothing like what I was worried about. (I recently got a pair of Pour La Victoire
Irina pumps, and those -- while mind-blowingly gorgeous -- really do have a cramped toe box and are nearly impossible to walk in. These heels by Sofft
are nothing like that sort of discomfort, while still being pretty sexy and maintaining that platform look!) These Ramona heels just need a teensy bit of breaking in. To help that process along, for the past few hours I've stretched the toe box of the left shoe ever so slightly with a high-heel stretcher (a great investment, by the way -- make sure you get the ones specifically for high heels, not flats if you in fact want to stretch a high heel), and it's already made the shoes
fit like a dream. I could probably have done the same thing by just wearing them around the house -- they were only slightly tight, not impossibly so. The main picture here doesn't do them justice; they really are a hot-looking pair of high heels, but they don't feel at all as high as they look. I've had two ankle surgeries after shattering my right ankle, and it's difficult for me to wear high heels in general for any length of time, but these are no problem; I plan to wear them to a wedding in October, and I'm not at all worried about having them on all day long. I generally wear a 10.5 to 11, and I got a size 11. My heel slips out of the back of the right shoe a tiny bit (it's my smaller foot), but that's easily fixable with a heel insert. Oh, I was also worried that the black wooden stacked heel would look tacky since it wasn't covered in patent leather, but it doesn't. To get a better idea of what the shoe looks like, make sure you watch the video that is available under "Larger Image and Additional Views." The thicker heel gives them a kind of retro-glam feel (and some added stability), which I love, but they are still thin enough to look young and hot, which is hard to find in a size 11. They are also not too high - I am already a tall girl, and some heels (like the aforementioned PLV's) make me positively Amazonian. These are just a nice little boost. The cherry on top of it all is that I ordered these shoes
at 7:30pm yesterday, and I received them this afternoon! These shoes
are worth every penny: buy them! Amazing shoes
; amazing service.
