Although I read some of the reviews, I was still HOPEFUL. They came today and when I first opened the box, I was really happy with the gray color. After inspecting them further, the design and the way they are made is not good. I agree with another review.. your heels slip out as you walk (I even went 1/2 size down) because of the elastic sides and the HEEL is made irregular. It sticks out at the seam where your heel would rest against. They would be comfortable if you wore them for only a few hours but I am so scared the heel is going to break off and I end up breaking my tail! :-( One more note... one heel came scratched up on the back like an evil bird got a hold of them with his claws.. not sure what thats about. If you order them.. order a little smaller as they do run big.
