I'd be having so much trouble finding a nice pair of slingback pumps in rose gold, and I'm glad these were the ones! They look even better in person, and complement a wide variety of color combos. They are definitely high, but I felt secure wearing them, and they held up through rehearsals, a wedding, and plenty of mingling and photos in and outdoors. I definitely took them off after several hours of moving/standing, but for shorter periods, they're perfect. I have never gotten so many people commenting on how much they loved my shoes. They were a hit! I usually wear a 7 US, and the corresponding size matched up perfectly.
