This is one of the most beautiful pair of shoes I own. I receive many compliments on them. I wore this shoe as a bridesmaid in a wedding and we were told to simply purchase a pair of silver shoes. My feet were in a lot of pain by the time we got through the pictures, ceremony and then the reception (more than the normal amount you might feel after wearing heels all day). I was so happy to finally kick them off at the reception and it actually took a while to regain feeling in a few toes! Perhaps 4" heels were far too tall to expect comfort all day. If you will be wearing them for 2-3 hours or perhaps longer with much sitting involved, you will love them! But if you need them to be comfortable for 2+ hours of mostly standing, I would not recommend. Otherwise, a beautiful shoe that I hope to get use from again in a less demanding setting!
