I wore these shoes for my wedding, as I couldn't justify spending a ton of money on a pair of shoes that were going to be used for one day. I was able to use these for my rehearsal dinner as well, and they were super comfortable! I was fearful they would be a bit too casual for my wedding dress, but I was pleasantly surprised at how they transitioned from cocktail dress to formal lace wedding gown.I walked/danced in these for hours the day of my wedding and didn't take them off until the very end of the night. I never had an issue with the back strap coming unvelcroed and the straps didn't bother me until I'd been on my feet for literal hours. I should also note, I'm usually one who prefers wedges as I like a "clunkier" heel and the stability that goes along with them. These shoes provided both of those things in a way that was much more appropriate for a formal event. The best part is, I can wear these again for future occasions, since they don't scream bridal. I searched months for wedding shoes, but it was definitely worth it to find these unexpected gems.
IMPORTANT: These are NOT 4" heels!!!! Someone said that in the reviews, and I hesitated buying them for so long because I thought that was too high. These are 3.5" (pics attached) AND they have a front platform of approximately 3/4". So the heel height is under 3" -- which is a HUGE difference from a 4" heel. These shoes are really comfortable and supportive - my weight isn't resting on the ball of my foot, but rather my heels, which makes such a huge difference. I am not big on heels and I LOVE these!!I have a 6.5 in another Naturalizer shoe but a 6 fit me better in this. The narrow is no joke. I thought I had somewhat narrow feet but I couldn't fit my foot in the shoe. Huge difference between the narrow and the normal.
I saw this type of shoe on Health.com article "10 Comfort Heels That Won't Wreck Your Feet". It fits great, is comfortable & is still sexy looking. I like that it gives right at my bunion bump (see pic). The footbed is smooth (unlike the sister shoe style Pressley which has a pad but the stitching is right at the wrong spot for my bunion bump). I got black & I would get it again...maybe I will in another color. Also, made in Vietnam not China.
