These are quite a pair of shoes! The quality of the leather is excellent, they don't appear to scuff too easily (though I can't guarantee kicking things), and the design is very cute. I love the little bows on the front. That said, the comfort level is not very good. You'll definitely want to wear nylons or stockings with these, at least to suspend the inevitable pain that accompanies wearing these for long periods of time. Maybe it's just my exceptionally flat feet, but I have a hard time wearing high heels (or rather, most shoes, come to think of it) without incurring a lot of pain after walking/standing for multiple hours. I gave these heels the ultimate test wearing them to Dapper Day. I was there for about three to four hours and walked almost the entire time non-stop. My feet were not very happy by the time I got back to my car. Out of my group, my feet probably hurt the least, but that's not really saying much. I had some very mild blistering around my toes where the peep-toe opening is and the bottoms (the ball and heel) were aching pitifully. Three to four hours doesn't seem like a very long time for me, but again, I have the flattest feet in the world. That said, these are more comfortable than a lot of other pairs of heels that I have. The ankle strap is nice and makes it very easy to walk. I don't feel awkward wearing things whilst walking, which is always helpful. No girl wants to feel like a duck when wearing high heels. I'd say that if you have average or usually-not-sensitive/flat feet, these would be excellent shoes for you! If you have flat feet...you can try a pair of insoles and see if that helps. That's next on my agenda.
