These are great shoes.
These give me height without being too dramatic so I can wear them anywhere including work. I purchased the faux suede, material is a good dark black and seems like it will hold up well. I am a women's size 5.5 so I can get away with wearing a size 6 (these are sold in men's sizing so I bought size 4), but I will say these are a wide shoe. If you are the kind of person who has narrow feet, or do not like extra toe room you might not like they way they fit. I wear a lot of flared pants and I love the way the front of the shoe sticks out, it looks chunky and perfect for what I want it to look like. The price is very affordable compared to other styles.
