I think these run true to UK sizing. The heel is stable, but it's higher than I expected. The description states that the heel is 3.5 inches, but it somehow seems higher and makes my trousers appear too short. I'm used to wearing pumps in that same height, so this is a comparative observation. Perhaps the block heel with the thick sole on the forefoot are to blame. I haven't decided whether to keep these shoes because of this. The shoes seem well-made, though.
