I wanted a pair of cute and stylish shoes for going out in the evening on my upcoming trip to Rome. Thought I'd try these based on some travel blogs and they seem to fit the bill. Of course, I've not tried them on about a mile of cobblestones yet, so we'll see. They are really sweet looking on, have a nice little heel, and look well made. The only issue is the toe is a bit narrow (and I don't have a wide foot), but I think since they are leather that will stretch a bit and it's not uncomfortable right now. Also, the leather wrap runs all the way down to the sole on the heel, which will get a lot of nicks and wear. It would've been nice to have a little black 1/8" hard material "cushion", but overall they were well worth the purchase - so cute!
