There are really cute shoes and would be easy to walk in if they would stay on your feet. There is about a 1 inch hidden platform. I usually wear 7.5-8 but I had to order 8.5. The perforated part is too loose at the top of your foot so you tend to walk right out of them. They are so baggy they look like they're on the wrong feet. No need for a zipper! I tried to put a ribbon thru the perforated part and tried to make them tighter but they are so cheap they rip. I am out $120 + shipping for 2 pair! The royal blue is a great color and matches with the lapis blue cord blazer perfectly, if you like to be matchy. If you have wide feet these shoes may work for you, however the shoe bed is too short, even at an 8.5 for me. No way I could go to a 9. If you can buy a larger size and have wide feet then I might recommend for you. Shame, they are cute!
