I really loved seeing these on the website, and for such an affordable price, I had to have them. Sadly, when they arrived in the mail and I eagerly slipped them onto my feet, they were all too big on my ankles. It might have looked extra awkward for me since my knees slightly point inward so I'm convinced that anything that isn't fitted onto my foot only accentuates that. Other than that, the instep bands fit great and the shoe is true to size. Since it's a wedge, you can already expect comfort and comfort is always good when you're dealing with a 5" heel. I'm bummed out because I really wanted to love them, but I'd say they're worth the try if the ankle won't be an issue for you. Not to mention with winter around the corner, these could easily be incorporated into your wardrobe with tights.
