i bought these to look drippy, not to run around in. so i was not super disappointed when i found out they are not the most comfortable shoes. i am a 7.5/8 us w, and i went with the eights, because sizing down is just a little risky. the eights fit me perfectly. They’re like perfect little punky clown shoes (and i say that in the best way). they’re pretty easy to walk in for platforms, and the bottom is nice and cushiony for ur feets. the backs did rub a little on my heels with the little fishnet socks i was wearing, but thicker socks might help with that. the other thing i noticed was that the roses are only held on with glue. upon arriving, one of them had a glob on the top, so i pulled it off (because it looked like glue and i didn’t want glue on my rose) and it sort of unraveled a bit. not completely, but enough that i have to fix it now. i will probably omit the glue and just sew it in place so it’s more sturdy. all in all, i think the pricing is fair for what you are getting, and if you are looking for a new pair of black shoes for your collection, these are a solid choice. the slight uncomfortableness is made up for with that fact that they just fucking look cool imo, but you can decide for yourself!
