Amazing style and design
Fits true to size
Slip-on slingback design
All day comfort
Good support and stability
High price tag
The heel is slightly wide
The rounded heel is wrapped in the same leather as the uppers, unifying the look of the shoe. The round design is wide enough that it is going to be able to provide you with a decent base to stand on, increasing the overall stability and comfort level of the slingbacks.
The lining inside the pumps are also going to provide you with some breathability, which is always a good thing when you are planning on wearing them for more extended periods, or you are heading out on a warm day. The well-ventilated foot chamber is going to help keep your feet from overheating, allowing air to get into the foot chamber and cool you down. No need to feel like your feet are suffocating while out and about in these shoes.
As mentioned above, they have a slip-on style which includes an elastic slingback ankle strap. They have a pointed toe silhouette and wrapped heel, matching the materials of the rest of the shoe. There are two different color options available to purchase, both of which are excellent choices. You can go with the classic black suede with an elegant bow on the toes, or the fun tan with black polka dots (sans the bow).
Assuming you purchase the correct size of these pumps, you can rest easy knowing that your feet are going to stay locked tightly in place and will not slip and slide around inside the foot chamber. The vamp will do its part in holding the forefront of your foot down, while the slingback strap will keep your ankle firmly in place.
As for arch support, there is a moderate amount but maybe not as much as some customers would have liked to have seen. There is some padding underfoot in the way of a leather sole, but that is only going to give a little cushioning and might not be suited for those with high arches. You could always opt to add gel inserts if the lack of high arch support becomes a problem.
Ensuring that your footwear of choice is not overly burdensome is always a good thing as you will not have to worry about than holding you back throughout the day. The lighter the shoe, the better.
Yes, they have a steep price tag, but they are also not going to need to be replaced for a while, if at all. As long as you properly care for your footwear, there should be no reason that they will rip or otherwise fall apart, needing replacing.
