I found these shoes to be true to size. I ordered them in my usual size (5.5) and they fit perfectly! They're not to narrow and not too wide--I feel they're the usual width most shoes are (they are a stiffer material though so unlike something like tennis shoes, there's not too much give if you do need them wider). The stiffness of them, due to the leather-like material (if not real leather), helps them keep their shape really well though! I find this helpful when storing. And don't worry, it's not so stiff it's difficult to get on. I found them really easy to get in and out of.
These shoes are really tall! Which isn't a bad thing--for me at least. I love tall shoes so these are great. I will admit they are taking some getting used to though--while I wear platforms often, I don't really wear heels too often. I definitely don't think these are an ALL day kind of shoe. These are great for going out and spending a few hours in though!
I got them in the color "Wine" and found the color to be true to what the image on the listing shows. I absolutely love them in this color as well! They give a pop of color to a dark outfit and have this edgy/grungy vibe--which is fitting for my style. I also really like the look the texture/material of the shoes give.
The soles have a little bit of padding but not by much. This doesn't make them uncomfortable but I would invest in some sole inserts if you plan to wear them fairly often (I do this with most of my heels anyways). The thickness of the heels keeps them more stable when walking (I find I can be a bit wobbly at first with thinner heeled shoes--but these ones help me wobble much less because of the thick heels). The shoes are also light weight, surprisingly! They don't feel heavy and your feet don't feel weighed down by them.
So overall, after a bit of getting used to (if you're not used to heels) I find them fairly easy to walk in and wear. I absolutely love the color and love the style of them! The shoes are really nice quality and are well made. These are definitely one of my new favorite pairs of shoes.
I plan to wear these shoes with more of my darker outfits. I have a lot of outfits that are mostly just black or monochrome. I feel these shoes will add a subtle pop of color with a lot of my outfits that only contain shades of grey, black and/or white. I don't plan to wear these daily but am definitely going to wear these for any short events or when going out for a short time and a nice occasion.

I really love these shoes! They fit perfectly/are true to size. They're made from this rubber-y, silicone-like material which is actually pretty comfortable and not very slipper (which I was semi-expecting). The soles aren't too padded unfortunately, but I think the material it's made from makes it softer and comfortable to wear. The straps are adjustable and I was able to easily adjust them so they felt secure and my feet didn't risk slipping around. There is a bit of a rubber-y smell at first, but I found that goes away fairly quickly.
I got it in the "Nude" color and found it to be just slightly lighter than the photo listed (which some color difference is to be expected due to various things--such as monitor differences, lighting, etc). I still love the color though! It's not drastically off or anything, just a shade or two lighter and is still great for summer and spring. By the way, these are great for summer and spring (like I just mentioned), no matter what color you get them in!
The shoes are fairly light, for being so large platform wise. They're easy to walk in without your feet feeling weighed down in any way. I've been able to wear them all day and have had no problems. Keep in mind, I've worn nothing but platform shoes for a few years now so I'm very used to shoes like this--I know it can usually take some getting used to.
The shoes do appear to be a bit on the more narrow side. I don't have wide feet so that wasn't a problem for me, but I feel that is something for people to be aware of.
The shipping was fast! I selected just the basic shipping method and they arrive in around a week.
Overall, I'm incredibly happy with these shoes. I think they're super cute, they fit my style (especially for around the summer and spring season--which is what I wanted these for) and they're easy to wear throughout the day. I love the color and I love the texture/material.
I plan to wear these shoes mostly in the spring and summer. During those seasons I tend to wear more light neutral colors (such as various shades of whites and nudes), as well as pastels. My style very much leans more towards a boho or festival style, so I figured these shoes could compliment that. I'll probably mostly wear them when I want a pop of color in an all white (or mostly white) outfit or with some of my more pastel/holographic styled outfits. The nude-pink color definitely gives me a variety of style options. I even find myself throwing them on when I just need to make a quick store run or something!
