These shoes could not possibly be more comfortable (the inside, both the sole and the sides, toe box, the whole works that touches your feet, is beautifully and incredibly softly padded, without looking funky on the outside of the shoe) and is dressy enough to go to any event short of "glamorous", and even then, if you wanted flats, these would be the ones I'd choose. At the same time, I can put them with a pair of jeans and do my usual walkabout in the neighborhood and be just as at-home in them. My only concern, and I knew this going in, because I love suede, is that I won't be able to wear them when it rains so I don't ruin the beautiful suede exterior. I bought all three colors and am glad I did. Found a great coupon for savings and decided I wouldn't wait, fearing they would run out. I did order the blue ones first, then immediately got online after I received them and ordered the black and purple ones. The price is over my budget without a discount, but these puppies are built to last, and I did find them at a substantial discount one day, so I consider these investment shoes. If you think you like the style...you will be over the top when you feel the fit. Go for it!
