I received these shoes a week ago and I love them! I have the black ones and I wear them with jeggings and shorts but they look especially nice with cropped jeans. Style wise, these are definitely head-turners. Even men have told me the shoe is sexy. The toe is not an issue with me, it's all about how you rock the shoe. Personally, I leave the top strap undone and that gives it an edgier look. I'm purchasing the grey ones today!

I got them in the grey/suede combination size 8 and I wear them every day. They look good with everything - bootcut, flair, skirts, yoga pants, skinny jeans - you name it (though as the other reviewer said the trendiness of the shoe and height addition combination lead to all eyes on you especially in rural areas but I am only 5'4" on my stretchier days so I appreciate any comfortable, hidden heel) - I usually go with an 8½ preferring thicker socks but these seem to run half a size to big as an 8 was perfect for me. As another reviewer stated the toe does turn up slightly. I like aesthetically what this provides to the shoe and frankly my big toe does that naturally which leads to a propensity for me to get up on my tip toes. Once I broke these sneakers in a little, as they arrived stiff, they literally feel like natural extensions of my feet. I am always looking for shoes that make my feet look smaller, and if you do the same these provide that illusion of smaller size feet. I also tried on multiple sizes/colors of the Ash wedge sneaker and it just looked awful from the side (and way less comfortable, like walking on a wooden block) for the money in a size 9 and a size 8 though cuter were far narrower in the toe bed. I highly prefer these Madden wedge sneakers in comfort and style. There does seem to be a high arch to the shoe as after a few days of wearing these straight I recognized a faint strain in my high arched feet but its a super rare occurrence (good support). I got and returned these in gold and think they look like moon shoes. No comparison to the grey/suede combination except in general style. I think the color variation just adds more to the shoes, though. I do plan on getting the black leather. I adore these shoes and need a pair that I can wear daily as I already spilled coffee on the suede. As much as I do not want to be that girl with the same expensive shoes in multiple color variations, I adore these for practical and style reasons that far out weigh social conventions.

Converted Skeptic here! I have held out on getting wedge sneakers for quite some time-- I was worried they'd look too clunky or trendy. I ordered these babies and I'm a convert!! They're amazingly comfortable to walk and stand in, and they're pretty dang cute. I definitely found my new footwear for concerts at Red Rocks!!!

OK just got the black ones last week so I have 2 pairs, black and silver and love them both but I REALLY love the black. MUCH better than expected! They look so great on! I see Steve Madden came out with them in red which I'd LOVE to get them too! Wish Zappos would get that color. :-( and awesomely fast delivery from Zappos AS usual. :-D

Saw a pair of similar shoes at a New York Nets open practice and I instantly fell in love. Unfortunately every pair I found in store everything but perfect...too big, too high, too ugly, etc. But I finally saw these on the web site read the reviews and took a chance. I love heels but can only tolerate them in small increments. I wore these all day no discomfort at all. However, I would have bought a size down if I knew that it was a wide width shoe...guess I didn't read carefully. Overall awesome shoe.

I ordered these in silver last night at 10:30pm and received them by noon today - wow, even hubby was amazed and was like "No way, how'd they get it here so fast. That's impossible" Love at first sight, even better in person, I love these new kicks. I ordered my normal size and they were perfect. I'm going to get them in black next month and I think they are a lot nicer than the pricey Isabel Marant ones.

All I can say is get them. Get them now. They arrived today and the leather is so high quality and they're so comfy on. And they're so chic for sneakers. I can't wait to wear them. You can't even feel the platform in them. They'll be so cute with leggings, skinny jeans, and tapered sweats. I am a 9 or 9.5 depending on the shoe. I usually order a 10 in sneakers. I ordered a size 9 in these and they fit perfectly.

I must admit I hated this style at first (saw Beyonce with the Isabel Marants and thought they were terrible) but they have grown on me. I purchased the pink and they look super cute on! They run a whole size too big. I always wear a 9 in Steve Madden, tried them on in the store and felt like I had on a clown shoe. Ordered an 8 from Zappos and they fit perfect. Thinking about purchasing a 2nd color.

I really loved these shoes and hated to return them but there was a problem with the straps. After putting them on and trying to put the straps in place, they were very short and all the Velcro showed which made them look bad. I do not know if all are made that way. If it was not for the very short straps and Velcro showing I would have kept them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Betsey Johnson Nexuss

Let me tell you one thing. I LOVE these shoes! I was saving my money on Isabel Marant's sneakers, which cost about 600-700, when I saw these, I was like WHOA! couldn't believe how always identical these shoes look like. I mean not even that, these babies are so comfy I want to sleep in them! And one more thing! I'm getting one more pair in Pink. Omg I love these! :)

I ordered these in the blue/yellow combo and think they look amazing. I'm usually a 7.5-8 in most shoes and generally size up for sneakers. I ordered an 8 since these are whole sizes only. They definitely run big as I am swimming in the 8. If you are between sizes, size down. Haven't worn them yet so I can't really confidently comment on comfort but I think they will be comfortable. I'm hoping to exchange but Zappos is already sold out in a 7.

The instep seemed off, one heel higher than the other. When they broke in, I bet you won't feel it. I was too worried to chance it!
