I bought these darlings and am over the moon with them. I finally have a pair of ankle strap pumps that work for my feet! Although the heel is below three inches, ideally I’d have preferred a lower heel. That said, their comfort, fun pattern, and elegant silhouette sold me lock, stock and barrel. Their cushioning footbed and soft leather was key, as was the elastic insert on the ankle strap that makes it easy to stride. They are not eight hour shoes, but I’ll thoroughly enjoy them on shorter trips. Also available in cheetah.
