Rated 4 out of 5Â by tnlady Very lightweight
When I first felt the package, I thought I had received an empty box. These shoes are very lightweight, probably because there isn't very much padding in the insole. The collar is padded, and they are actually comfortable, but not to use as a walking shoe or for long periods on your feet. These are more of a shoe to be worn as a statement out to eat, or to run errands. They are not the color the picture shows, they have a lot more brown to them, more of a taupe color. They are definitely not a winter boot, but with some thick socks, would suffice in cooler weather. If you are a 1/2 size, size up....not down. They are a little higher on the ankle than a hi-top tennis shoe, so you can roll-up your jeans, or wear a long skirt, cute with shorts, and even shorter skirts. The studs keep them from looking too casual, so you can dress them up or down. I have worn mine out once, and got a lot of "where did you get your shoes" questions and compliments.
