These shoes are SEXY. PERIOD. Advice- 1) Zipper hurt on 1 foot, they will break in... small price to pay for sexy legs. 2) HALF SIZE LARGE (order a 1/2 size down from usual size). If you order 1 size down they wont fit. That's it.

These sandals look cheaply made, especially for the cost of them and the zipper is hard to use. I was really disappointed.

I absolutely love these shoes! I wear them all the time. You can dress them up or wear them to more casual occasions. They are pretty expensive, but worth it. You've got to have a brown shoe in your closet, and this is the one. I always break down the worthiness of the shoe (or bag, etc) by dividing the price by how many times I've worn it until I get to something I'd be willing to pay to wear them just once - then I know I got my money's worth.

I LOVE these shoes & can't believe how lightweight they are. They truly do make your legs look much longer than they are. Because they're so light, they're much more comfortable than some of the other wedges I own. I can see how the shoe might be a little uncomfortable in the back, but it's nothing a preemptive bandaid can't fix (as another reviewer pointed out). The price is a little steep for the shoe, but I can see myself wearing these enough where it'll be worth it in the end.

Gorgeous shoe, especially love the unique stacked wedge. They look great with both skinny jeans and dresses and I have received many compliments from both men and women. I have walked many New York blocks in these, and I found them to be reasonably comfortable and durable. Even though they rubbed a bit in the back at first, it was nothing that a pre-emptive bandaid couldn't help, and as I have worn them more, the leather has softened. I am a very narrow size 8, so I sized down to a 7.5 in these and they are perfect. I will be sad to put them away when the weather cools down. Thanks Zappos!

These are beautiful and wonderful and amazing. The picture doesn't really do them justice. They look so much better on and really elongate your legs. I recommend them to anyone and everyone! They seem really comfy so far, too!

I love these shoes! I was looking for the perfect platform wedges for the summer and I think I've found them. They are very comfortable for a heel that high, and the straps are sturdy, the wedge is not chunky but thin and tapered at the heel, but I do not wobble on these like some other platforms do, which is rare. They make my legs look so long. I got the mink color and it goes well with my summer clothes. I can even wear these in the fall with black tights! The price is not cheap, but these are definitely worth it, for these will last for a couple seasons.

Love these shoes! I have only worn them a few times and have received copious compliments. I also find them quite comfortable, and not too high but I am used to heels. I am so happy I got them.

These shoes are really comfortable! Don't be scared of the height. They're so much more comfortable than heels and they definitely don't make your feet wobble (this happens with stilettos a lot for me). Plus, they look really really stylish! The quality is really good. The wooden stacked heel looks really nice and the quality of the leather is pretty good! In my humble opinion they can compare with top dollar YSL platforms. I'm going to add rubber soles on the bottom so they can last longer. But yeah men love these as well. I've gotten so many compliments on this shoe, all from men! If you love this shoe, you should definitely take a look at wedges from Cynthia Vincent's. The vibe of the brand is similar and they're also in the same price range and they are super comfortable as well!

I love these shoes! They're definitely hot, and very stylish yet comfortable. They're pretty versatile, too. I got the brown, and would get the black as well if they had my size.

I really like these with anything from jeans to capri camos to dresses. They are very high (and I own platform Louboutins, so that's saying something) and the insides are a little slippery, so I have to put in those gel inserts so my feet don't slip around in them.

Man, I wanted to keep these. They're beautiful. They are just very...tippy. Also, the rough cloth of the straps needs better lining on the toes, it rubbed quite severely just walking a few steps to test them out.

Happy with this pair so far. Wish I had bought a size 6 1/2 since I feel the leather stretched and now doesn't feel quite snug. I was size 7 pre-kids and now am 6 1/2. Got lots of compliments but be aware of walking on uneven roads. Also, the top strip of leather rubs into my big toe and makes it uncomfortable wearing for longer than one hour.

These are really cute wedges and I wanted to keep them, but the straps around the ankle were very loose and didn't look nice. Perhaps my ankles are abnormally skinny? I love the stacked wedge. Hopefully the ankle straps fit others!

These are cute, but do not fit properly. I bought these in burlap. The picture online does not do it justice; they are actually much cuter in person. However, while the shoes are cute, the arch is really high so most of your weight goes to the ball of your foot and it can get uncomfortable. Also, I wear a 10 and I actually have quite narrow feet. Although my feet fit well in the bottom half of the shoe, the strap around the ankle is huge. The fit would probably be better if it was more snug, but I feel like they are going to fall off. Even with the zip they are at least two inches too big. I wish there was a way to take it in but I do not see how that is possible.

Great shoe! Certainly not too tall, I'm 5'7 and adds just the right amount of height. Very comfortable, easy to walk in...over A. Love the back zipper accent, definitely adds to the allure of the shoe. Great with both jeans and dresses. Even with untanned skin - summer yet to arrive - the nude color is very flattering.

Lovely fit, incredibly comfortable...these shoes are a must have! I ordered in the natural leather in a half size down and the straps were loose and the fit wasn't as good. Kept the black in my regular size and love, love, love them.

I had been eyeing these shoes for months after seeing someone wear them on the reality show Most Eligible Dallas. Finally took the plunge and bought them. Love love love. I bought the black and they go with practically anything. They will spice up any outfit. I compliments on them every time I wear them. I knocked off a star for comfort. The leather band is a little tight around my toes. I will have to take them to the cobbler to get stretched out.

Love this shoe! I just received these in the Florida Sand burlap color & they are the perfect spring/summer wedge! If you are looking for the one shoe in your closet that goes with pretty much everything - look no further! The styling of this shoe makes your legs look miles long (and I'm short!). They are really a beautiful shoe with excellent craftsmanship. I wear a size 8 shoe typically & bought an 8 in these. They fit well - length is perfect - the ankle straps are a tad bit loose but not enough that I would have needed to size down. I recommend sticking with your usual size in these so that your toes aren't overhanging! These shoes are definitely worth the price tag - I can foresee getting a ton of use out of them.

I was so excited to receive these shoes, but contrary to the reviews I had read, I did not find them comfortable. I have fairly slim, bony, flat feet, and what was interesting was that my "good" foot, the one where my bunions have been removed, did not fit into the front of the shoes, whereas my bad foot did. Either the 2 shoes were differently made, or these shoes were pushing my feet into a position they shouldn't be in. They went back.

I love this shoe, but it's very narrow. I think the leather straps will stretch over time to be more comfortable on my wide foot.

DVF makes amazing shoes! I have several pair and there always the very first shoes I look at when choosing outfits. Opals are incredible and make your legs look a mile long. Yes the zipper is a little stiff at first but it loosens up after time.

I am a true 6.5 but it runs a little bit big, so if you are on the smaller size I would go down. I should have ordered a 6 but now it's sold out.
