The Ofelia boots have a high heel of 4 inches. The heel is block style and sturdy. The main material is suede, with the lining being leather, and the sole thermoplastic polyurethane. These boots are ankle boots, so they will fit comfortably right above the ankle and provide some extra support. There is a zipper closure on the back to make for simpler putting on and taking off.
You can sport these boots any time of day; for casual, business, or formal wear. Customers have reported that these boots are perfect to dress up their work attire, and are comfortable enough to wear all day without the pain and discomfort usually associated with heeled footwear after a few hours. You don’t have to sacrifice comfort or style with these boots. The block heel provides comfort and stability while still making a statement with their height. Of course, Ted had to add a little extra flair, hence the scalloped detail at the top of the boot and the metal styling and point at the toe. They sure did hit the nail on the head with these stunning heeled boots.

Wearing heeled boots can give you a sense of confidence by lifting you up, giving you better posture, and making you look taller and thinner. The metal accents and scalloped detailing contribute to the beautiful appearance of these boots, and are the perfect amount of flare to make them look sophisticated and trendy. The soft, smooth suede material is also very pleasing to the eye. Heeled boots are the perfect secret weapon to keep in your closet to add a little flare to any and all outfits.
The cushioning will take longer to “bottom out” from being worn and/or used for a certain number of hours. This material does not feature chemical blowing agents or chemical crosslinking in the polyurethane injection process, therefore industrial regrind and post-consumer recycling are a possibility. With other conventional materials, such as rubber, recycling in not an option. TPU is ultimately an environmentally friendly product.
Suede is the inner layer of the skin, or hide, of an animal. Hides can be split into layers. The outer layer is what we refer to as leather, and the inside split layer is what we refer to as suede. Suede is a supple, durable material because the hide is tanned. Suede may be less durable than standard leather, but it makes up for that in its thinness and pliability. Suede is also absorbent and less expensive than full grain leather.
Upkeep: Clean suede with a dry sponge or suede specific brush to remove dirt and dust. You can protect your suede by purchasing silicon spray. The spray can protect against water stains and damage.
The main shoe material is suede, which is luxurious in feel and offers a beautiful appearance. The outsole is made of polyester TPU, which provides a number of advantages (Listed above in “Outsole”). Leather lining makes these boots a hit because leather provides breath-ability and comfort beyond compare. These boots come to just above your ankle to provide extra stability without sacrificing versatility within your wardrobe.
There is a zipper closure on the heel for convenience, scalloped detail on the top of the boot, block style 4” heels, and pointed toe with a metal accent. Customers are reporting that they are beyond impressed by the comfort and versatility. They love that they can wear them for more than an hour without pain and discomfort, as well as wearing them for work, out to eat, or just a trip to the grocery store. They can be worn with just about any wardrobe choice and look trendy and appropriate wherever you go. And, just as importantly, they will provide you with breath-ability, stability, and durability. There is no need to worry about sprained ankles, sweaty feet, or painful days at the office when you grab your Ofelia boots in the morning.
