I'm in my 60s. I've reluctantly moved away from heels for dressy occasions because of the aches that come the following day from wearing them. This divine pair however, are heavenly to wear and do not extract a price the following day! They fit securely by design, have enough heel for the desired effect while not being so high as to be "asking for trouble" .... and, let's face it, they are GREAT looking for every angle.
To date, they're my favorite shoe purchase all year (and that is saying something).
