I stopped in the store to pick out something for my 30th year class reunion on the day of the event. Didn't know what I was looking for but I was certain I would find it. This shoe was perfect for an evening of dancing. I was on my feet for 4 hours mixing and mingling with classmates. I received so many compliments. I purchased them in black because it works well with many items I already have. The height is perfect for someone that does wear heels too often. I will definitely get lots of use out of these shoes for many events to come.
