"These shoes are great! They're super comfy with the perfect heel that isn't too short buy not too high that you can't walk around in the comfortably for a while, They look exactly as pictured (my photo doesn't do it justice) and have a kind of snake skin pattern but it looks pretty cool. Only critique would be that they do run a little large. Nothing that a pair of thick socks can't fix right up. So if I could have I'd would've gone the half size down but there aren't any half sizes. The leather is fairly sturdy but flexible so you can get your foot in and out without much trouble, All together a great pair of shoes that really make an outfit edgy and cool."
