When I got these I was unsure of the chunkiness, but I have to tell you they are the most comfortable high heels I have! They feel like I am wearing flats yet have that elegant height. I have bad feet and cannot wear heels and this is a great solution! I want to order them in the natural, too.

I love the kork-ease brand and have several of their styles. I was waiting for Zappos to get these since I have to buy from Sundance and pay shipping. However, I was very disappointed with the cut on these- they kill my fit just putting them on, forget about walking in them. I hope folks have better luck than I did because they are super cute.

I bought these boots in Nero and I love the fit, comfort and style. The boots are true to size. I highly recommend them. I am trying to get another pair in 8 but they are not available. I know that I am going to wear these out. I love the boot's, style and sleek look.

These are a gorgeous deep red color. However, I am sending them back because they make my feet look huge and even though I went up a size (I can wear an 8½ or 9 but since I would be wearing these with socks I ordered a 9), the opening is a bit tight and rubs on my ankle when I walk. If the leather was a bit softer this would not be a problem. They also did not have as much padding on the insole as I expected.

I really wanted these boots! But I couldn't even get my foot into the boot, and when I did, it felt like they were 3 sizes too small - hard and uncomfortable. And I have very average feet that always fit an 8.5.

Simply put, these are awesome. They're comfortable, easy to walk in despite the platform and super cool. The charcoal is a good color too. I'd highly recommend them. Get a pair and enjoy the complements!

Shoe Love!! I've had these out of the box just moments, but think I'm already in love.... As I had hoped, the platform makes the heel feel so much smaller than it looks (it's higher, but it has just a little more incline than a Dansko or Ariat). The fit is perfect, the quality is top-notch, the color (I got carbon) is nice and neutral. These will be great with jeans (for a longer leg-line, thank you!), or with dresses and tights (cute bootie). I've tried on Kork-Ease before, but the price is more than I usually like to spend. This time I'm going to KEEP them and LOVE them and not regret it.

Love these boots! They are so comfortable and offer great height. I ordered deep burgundy, and the color was more like a purple instead of a red, so I returned them for another color. The purple color is pretty, but for the price, I wanted a more versatile color.

I was so stoked to snag the last 7.5 in the Charcoal color (sorry ladies!). I spotted these at a boutique last year when I began my quest for the perfect black boot that was 1st - comfortable, and 2nd - not too dressy/not too badass (these lie nicely between the two). A year and many fruitless searches later I still had these in mind, and to my delight Zappos had 'em! The price was slightly steep, but I know Kork-Ease always delivers when it comes to quality. Comfort-wise I give 4 stars only because my foot is somewhere between medium and wide-ish so breaking in may take a couple wears, no biggie. They are still a dream to walk in and give my 5'3" frame a nice little boost in height. Style-wise, 4 stars as well because I kind of wish the zipper was shown off on the outside. The fact that the color is a deep charcoal with (very) slightly darker toe and heel and not jet black/shiny all over helps bring the boots down a notch and helps them fit into my often-more-casual style. I'm a huge fan of the platform styling because, as a very curvy and aforementioned short gal, I feel like it helps me look a little less top-heavy (this was my main problem with the Dolce Vita Jax boot). Also I have to mention...I ordered these at 10am Tuesday and they were at my doorstep by 2pm Wednesday...and I live on an island where all mail typically takes an extra day. Color me impressed! I don't know how Zappos does it, but keep it up!

These are so stylish and modern looking yet retro too. Very comfortable and stable. I don't wear heels usually over 3" because I don't want to break an ankle but not an issue here as the platform makes it about 3".

So fun and fabulous. Love how the platform lets me have that just-right amount of extra height. The color is a great neutral but a nice change from good ol' black.

These boots are much more comfortable than expected. I originally bought them to be a going out shoe but I find myself wearing them almost every day. They make even leggings and a sweater look put together.

I couldn't wait to try these out because I've never worn Kork-ease before, and I wore them as soon as I received them. They fit like a glove, totally comfortable, I think the lightest shoe I've worn - especially for a platform. I've worn almost every style of Dansko, and as comfy as those are - they are a pretty heavy shoe, so the lightness of the Kork-ease feels amazing. The deep burgundy color is great, too - a modern neutral that can be worn with anything. I am looking forward to trying other Kork-ease styles, especially the adorable summer sandals.

Wow. If these boots weren't so expensive, I'd buy another pair immediately! I have a pair of Kork-Ease clogs, so I knew I'd be getting really comfortable boots but I really didn't expect them to be as amazing as they are. These are very true to size and are easy to walk in. The platform gives great height and doesn't sacrifice comfort. The charcoal color is really nice and goes with both denim and black pants/leggings well. I highly recommend these boots.

I wanted a pair of ankle boots that I could wear with skirts and jeans. I ordered this pair and the Wendy (also by Kork-Ease) to compare. In my opinion the Marlo looked great with jeans, but a bit clunky with skirts. The burgundy color is really pretty for fall. I only wore them for a few minutes, but they seemed very comfortable. I typically wear a size 7 and the 38 was a great fit with a medium-thick pair of socks.

These arrived today and I am impressed with their beauty, comfort, and the quality of the boots. I purchased the deep burgundy so that they would go with black or brown, and love the color. I was looking for a smart pair of comfortable boots that I could wear on campus, and these would definitely work if I lived in a more moderate climate, or only walked on sidewalks and cleared cement pathways. Problem is in the salty slushy snow that often covers the areas I have to walk on in winters here, I am afraid that I will damage the beautiful leather (and stitching) that surrounds the heels and toes of the boots. I wish that I could keep them.

Interesting shoes. Incredibly comfortable, right out of the box. Clunky looking. Probably not the best boot to wear with skinny jeans or leggings, but definitely okay with regular jeans/slacks. Hmmm...the jury is still out on this one, but the comfort is making me lean towards keeping these!

Well maybe its because I don't have any clogs but I do have mad platforms, and even more flatforms but I find that these move all clunky. I feel like a geisha. They look great but they mess up my gait and I dont usually worry that cause I'm all about its better to look good than to feel good. Yes the footbed is padded. Its just that the uppers are stiff and the ankles dont move. They are on the narrow side and I'm keeping them because they are teal!

I love the style of these shoes and they are super comfortable. But the color (carbon charcoal) leaves something (a lot) to be desired. In the picture they look like they are almost black, but in reality they are more of a cross between and ugly brown, gray and a little black. I wanted to wear them with black tights and a black skirt and they looked ridiculous. I thought maybe they would work with a gray skirt but that was even worse because the color is not brown, nor black, nor gray. It is just plain bleak.

I need soft shoes. I bought this one because of the platform and low hill, which makes me a little taller without killing my feet. This one was not so comfortable, although some people may think that is acceptable. For me it isn't since I have to stand on these shoes all day, run to the airport and walk a lot. Bummer is that all the very soft shoes are so ugly and don't have some kind of platform to make my feet reach the floor when I sit down (I am only 5.1"). Most of the shoes have those ridiculous height that I refuse to wear. A platform like this one counterbalances the heel, which is perfect for me. I think this shoe is to the narrower side because I bought half a size larger (I always buy a half size bigger because I have wide feet) and it still felt snug. Otherwise it is true to size. The looks are okay, nice if you dress sporty.
