Lucky Brand has been bringing you great quality products since they were established in 1990. Taking inspiration from their Southern California roots, they strive to bring you both clothing and shoes that embody a laid back and free-spirited lifestyle. They are known mostly for their great fitting vintage-inspired jeans, but they are more than just that, they make all different kinds of apparel as well as shoes. They bring you fun designs with a personalized touch and some playful details to give you a great look that you will love. The Lucky Brand Lk-mahzan ankle booties are just one more if their long line of great products they have available for purchase.

These boots have a unique style that customers seem to like. They have cutout sides and a pointed toe silhouette. Unfortunately, some customers are unhappy with the lack of color options, but they make do with the few they do have to choose from. They are highly durable so the steep price tag is not as bad as it might seem, you will not have to worry about replacing the shoes anytime soon, making them well worth the extra money you spend on them. These shoes do not offer the best underfoot experience, as there is a very little cushioning in the footbed, which means you are not going to get a soft feeling under your feet that you might be looking for. Additionally, this means that there is not a lot in the way of arch support either. This does not seem to be too much of a problem as long as you are not going to be standing for extended periods of time. Overall, customers are happy with these booties and say they are an excellent addition to their wardrobes.

Outsole

Outsole

The outsole of the Lucky Brand Lk-Mahzan is made out of man-made materials that are designed to give you a decent amount of durability so you do not have to worry about them wearing down on you too quickly so you can enjoy these shoes for quite a while.

They have a 1.25-inch block heel on them so they are going to give you a little bit height when you are wearing them which most women love. This measurement is based on a size 6.5 medium and the height may vary depending on the size you choose. The block heel is a chunky square shaped heel that gives you the illusion of layers of wood that are stacked on top of each other for a great look.
Midsole

Midsole

There is not much of a midsole when it comes to the Lucky Brand Lk-Mahzan shoes, most of your underfoot experience is going to come from the above-mentioned outsole. There is, however, a cushioned footbed to give you some underfoot padding that your feet can appreciate while you are out and about. There is not a whole lot of padding there but there is enough so that it does not feel like you are standing on stones with each step you take. They do have a leather lining on the insides of the shoes though so it gives it a little extra comfort for a softer experience underfoot, especially if you choose to go sockless, as most people do with these particular shoes.
Uppers

Uppers

The uppers of the Lucky Brand Lk-Mahzan shoes are made out of soft leather that is designed to last you quite a while. The leather is strong so you are not going to have to worry too much about them ripping and tearing while you are out and about. They have a slip on design with cut out sides to give them a great style that many customers adore.

The leather, mixed with the leather inner lining, are going to ensure that your shoes have a decent amount of breathability to them so your feet can stay relatively cool and dry while you are on the go. There is not a whole lot of ventilation but there is enough that most customers are satisfied. Since you are able to get air flow into the foot chamber you are able to keep your feel relatively cool, but it is also going to allow any sweat from your feet to evaporate quickly and efficiently, helping keep your feet dry and it promotes a healthy in shoe environment for your feet.
Style

Style

Most customers really seem to like the look and style of the Lucky Brand Lk-Mahzan dress shoes. They are considered to be a short ankle boot, but they do not really resemble a pair of boots very well. They do have a cutout design on both sides of the shoes around the midfoot area to give it a more unique look. Finishing off the design in a pull tab on the heel and a pointed toe silhouette.

There are a few color options that you can choose from when purchasing these shoes, although there is not a whole lot and some people would have liked to have seen more. You can choose between desert, nougat, titanium, or Zinfandel. Overall, however, customers are OK with these options and have no problem finding something that is going to best fit their style needs.
Weight

Weight

When it comes to purchasing a pair of shoes you are going to want to try to find a pair that is going to weigh as little as possible. You do not want to be out and about and feel like there are additional weights attached to your feet that are holding you back and slowing you down, especially if you are going to be spending a lot of time on your feet. This is not something that you are going to have to worry about when it comes to the Lucky Brand Lk-Mahzan dress shoes. They are considered to be lightweight and definitely love up to that. Weighing in at only 9 ounces they are not going to weigh you down. This weight is based on a size 6.5 medium and is for a single shoes only, not the pair. Keep in mind that this weight is going to fluctuate depending on the size you order.
Durability

Durability

When you are purchasing a pair of shoes you are going to want to make sure that you find something that is going to last you quite a while and not have to worry about premature wear and tear, especially if you are spending a decent amount of money on them. In the case of the Lucky Brand Lk-Mahzan shoes, they are moderately priced so they are not too hard on the wallet, but that still does not mean that you want to have to replace them after only a couple of times wearing them. The good news is that you should not have to worry about that with these shoes. They are designed with durability in mind and will not fall apart on you prematurely. The strong leather uppers will not rip and tear easily and the outsole has an amazing lifespan so these ankle boots are going to be part of your wardrobe to a long time.
Support

Support

When it comes to your shoes you want to find something that is going to offer you a decent amount of support for the task at hand. The Lucky Brand Lk-Mahzan shoes are considered to be an ankle boot and they are made more for casual wear so they are not going to need as much in the way of support as some other shoes might.

They do, however, offer you a decent amount of support for your everyday casual wear. They do not have a lacing system but they still do a pretty good job of keeping your feet locked in place, you will not have to worry about your feet slipping and sliding around inside your shoes or potentially falling out of them when you take step, causing you to fall and potentially hurt yourself or someone else.

When it comes to arch support, they do not really offer a whole lot. They have a lightly padded footbed but there is not really enough padding under your arches so if you have particularly high arches then these might not be the best option for you.
Comfort

Comfort

When it comes to your footwear of choice you want to try to make sure that you find something that is going to be relatively comfortable, especially if you are going to be on your feet for extended periods of time. When it comes to the Lucky Brand Lk-mahzan ankle boots, there is not a whole lot of underfoot cushioning, so if you are looking for something with a lot of padding these might not be the best choice for you. There is a very little bit of cushioning in the footbed, but not enough according to some reviewers. Additionally, the lack of padding means that there is not a whole lot extra under your arches which can cause some discomfort to people.

The rest of the shoe, however, offers a decent amount of comfort. The soft lining throughout the shoe helps reduce the risk of your feet rubbing uncomfortably along the inside of your shoes which can lead to blisters. As long as you get the correct fit in these ankle booties then you should have no problem when it comes to blister and chafing protection.
Flexibility

Flexibility

When it comes to your footwear you are going to want to make sure that you find something with a decent amount of flexibility so you can have some freedom to move when you are walking. You want to have the ability to move your feet as freely and naturally as possible while still being able to give you the support and stability that you need. Unfortunately, the Lucky Brand Lk-Mahzan dress shoes do not offer a whole lot in the way of flexibility. The sole does not have a lot of give to them. They are not ridiculously stiff and your movements are not overly restricted, but they do not have as much flex as some customers might like.
Fit

Fit

The way your shoes fit your feet is crucial to your comfort and the level of support offered to you by your shoes. You are going to want to make sure that these booties fit you snugly enough that your feet are not going to slide around inside of them, or worse, fall out completely, while you are on the go. At the same time, you are going to want to avoid them being too tight that they will dig into your feet or squish your toes.

It appears that the Lucky Brand Lk-mahzan shoes are running fairly true to size, which is always a bonus because it is going to take some of the guesswork out of deciding what size is going to give you the best fit. Keep in mind, however, that these booties do not come in wide sizes so if you are looking for a wide width shoe there are not going to be the best fit for you. If you are unsure as to what size you should order you can always consult a sizing chart, it is better to check one out and get the right size the first time than to order the wrong size and have to deal with the hassle of returning them to get one that will fit you better.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

The Lucky Brand Lk-mahzan are a decent pair of heeled boots that many customers seem to enjoy. They have a stacked, block heel that measures in at about 1.25 inches depending on the size of the boot, which gives you a little added height that many women appreciate. They have a unique look with cutout sides and a pointed toe. These lightweight ankle booties look great for casual wear or would fit right in at the office. They might not give you the most comfortable underfoot experience due to lack of cushioning there, but as long as you are not planning on standing for extended periods of time it does not seem to be too much of a problem to most people. These are all around decent pair of dress shoes that many customers just adore and would be a welcomed addition to anyone's shoe closet.
