These shoes were comfortable from the first time I tried them on. The leather is soft, and I love the black/white snake print. The shoes are roomy, but my feet didn't slip out of them when I walked. They're true to size, but if you're between sizes, I would get the smaller size. The block heel is on trend and adds stability to the shoe. I plan to wear these all summer with cropped flare jeans and anything else they look good with. They will probably be a weekend shoe for me though since they have a casual vibe. Will be a great addition to my black based wardrobe. Highly recommend.
