So I saw these, and immediately fell in love but I was skeptical on purchasing... I caved and got them because I knew I would miss it if I didn't. I'm a true 8.5 so that's what I got and LET ME TELL YOU, these things fit like a glove! They are the perfect burgundy color and they are a perfect height. I swear I don't even feel like I'm wearing shoes! The heel is sturdy but still chic and they make almost no noise when walking. If you're on the fence about these shoes, JUST DO IT. You will not regret it. Will be buying in black as well!
