^ good job

I have the Freja's, Noemi's and these (below; pics is mine)
I find that they all run pretty true to size and I love that they're still fairly unique 'round town. I am finding that the paper or whatever on the insoles peel back within a couple of wearings so that is no bueno to me (esp when I paid full price.)

I have the Cecilia glazed ankle boots. the arch is quite steep as there is no platform, which is fine for me, but i wouldn't recommend them for someone new to heels or with a very flat foot.

that said, as they are enclosed, rather than a court shoe, they don't slip and therefore are much easier to walk in. also, even though there is no platform, i find the sole quite soft and comfortable on the ball of my foot. i have only had pain in them once when i wore them to a day time event and was wearing them from about 10am until 10pm and on my feet all day.

I don't know about Cecilia, but his other heeled shoes are indeed horrible. Just as much as they are beautiful)

thanks for your input, girls. the style i'm eyeing (jacquelyn) seems to have a pretty good, high platform and the arch doesn't seem as sharp but who knows. gonna cross my fingers and let ya know how it goes.
