I own this shoe in mint green and every time I wear it I get at least a few compliments. The 4.5" heel height advertised is deceiving due to the platform, and I don't find that they feel nearly that tall at all. I can walk around and dance in them for hours and I am anything but good at wearing high heels. The thick ankle strap and curvature/placement of the toe fabric is very flattering and these guys look awesome paired with a retro dress. Cannot recommend them enough.
