gorgeous, but VERY tall!
these shoes are absolutely gorgeous! the platform and the tapering heel make them comfy to wear all night. BUT, they are incredibly high. as a 6ft tall woman i thought i would splash out on some high shoes, but these are crazy! i didnt take into account the heel height + platform obviously. as much as i love them i definitely need to pick my audience or the average person end up getting neck cramp!

So Today and so Fashionable
I had serious qualms about ordering these shoes and was reluctant to wear them at first.Since I am over 6 ft. tall they really push the limit.However,I had no problems with the Wales,Bradford and Throne so I put them on for a date with a 6 foot 7 inch boy friend.He thought they were great.The heel shape makes the easier to walk in than the true stiletto and they are geometrically very appealing.Toe shape and vamp help to create an alluring presentation of the forefoot.I chose the beige as they went so well with my dress.I wish I had all the colors in my size 14.Thanks again to Barefoot Tess for providing these fabulous shoes and freeing me from my aversion to 5 inch heels.

These fabulous, fantastic pumps rock!,
I normally wear a size 14M in Samanta (though I've found a couple styles that run about a size small), and have been very impressed with the quality all-leather construction and very chic, smart designs! This is now my ninth pair in this brand. I first tried Viv Platform Pump in 14W and found them to be HUGE. They fit like a 15M with a huge gap at the back of the foot. Back they went, and this time I ordered size 13W. They fit like a glove! Width is perfect, and length is perhaps a trifle short (very little extra toe length, but adequate). At least there's no gap at the back of the shoe. Since I don't plan to go hiking in them, I don't forsee any problems. And, oh how fabulous, fantastic they look! I love the gleaming high heels that soar to 5-1/8 inches high in the back, and the wide-cut throatline that reveals some toe cleavage. Since they have a 7/8 inch thick covered platform, the heels don't feel nearly that high. The overall styling is very flattering to my very big feet and slenderizing to my legs! I am so grateful for Samanta! Now I no longer have to choose from stodgy, matronly styles in my size anymore! :o)). Please offer more heels from this incredible, innovative designer.

I would start by saying these shoes are totally worth the money. THEY ARE NOT CHEAP. But I find that a good pair of shoes are worth the money, as long as its not a ridiculous price for what you are getting. These are very classic, very sexy, and actually very comfortable. You cant necessarily see this from the picture but they are very durable. Solid shoes, awesome purchase.

Didn't Work for Me
Out of the box, this shoe is SASSY and GORGEOUS! I love it in person even more than the photos! I was SO excited to try it on! I don't mind price when I can find a great shoe that FITS and is GOOD QUALITY! But I was also glad to catch these on a (rare) sale!! :-)I first tried a 13W. It was too wide -- even for my wide foot. But the pain I was experiencing in the toe area cannot be described! My left foot is about a 1/2 size larger than my right, and it was in terrible pain! So, I thought perhaps I cut it too short on the measurements...ordered the 14'sThe 14's had better width for me, but STILL hurt in the toe area...HOWEVER, I had PLENTY of room in the back...as if the shoe would be great if I could somehow shove my foot further back (I don't think ball of foot pads would have worked in this case though).As an aside, they ARE very high, but the platform makes them very walkable. At 5'9 I don't mind the extra height and I know they would have been perfect for dressing up or down...So sad that I have to return these!"
