The heels are too tall and they hurt the soles of my feet, but...
...but dang, they look good. I feel sexy and confident when I walk around in them. Not quite the sexy/confident of a dominatrix, but alarmingly close.
The biggest size (10) fit me fine, so I special-ordered my real size (11) so I can get away with wearing thick comfy ski socks inside, to spare my poor bones a little. I also like that they're lace-up for the cool look and good fit, but have full-length zippers so that getting in and out isn't such a struggle.
Padded insole, my ass.
So, I am excited. I predict a lot of prancing around in these when they arrive, since I am highly unaccustomed to sexy shoes, and have little to no experience in heels...at all. I normally try to avoid Stupid Girl Stuff that makes no sense or is painful or expensive, but I'll allow myself this one blind spot. This time.
