I love Fly shoes and often browse through the latest designs but I always have to wait for them to be on special offer as the full prices scare me. I bought these in a size 6 and think I really might have been better off with a size 5 but my daughter tried them on (she is about half a size larger than me and has lower arches) and they are a good fit for her. The wedge heel is substantial but not over heavy so you do not feel like you are clomping around with bricks tied to your feet. Also the weight of the sole does not make them slip on your foot (they didn't with me or my daughter anyway). The colour is nice - I bought the dark brown version which I like very much. A word about their height though. If you are at all worried or inconfident about wearing heels and think that a platform wedge will solve this problem, these won't. They are high and you do feel much taller when wearing them. I wore them for half a day before my daughter poached them from me and when I took them off I felt like I was standing in a hole! However I am contemplating ordering some in a 5 for myself as they are pretty amazing looking and go well with trousers, skirts but particularly with summer dresses. I put a long boho dress on with them when I first tried them on to see what they would look like and they say summer together like you wouldn't believe! They are quite a classic design too, so a real staple to keep in your cupboard to alternate with other styles as they come and go. These get a thumbs up from me.
