"Looked at this shoe and thought might be cute. When you put it on it is fabulous! The brown on the side slims the foot. The heal height is very comfortable. The slingback stays up---even though it is not uncomfortabley tight-which I find amazing!-you cannot adjust the sling there is no buckle and no elastic. Most designers I take a 6 1/2 and I did in this shoe---( Prada closed toe I always need to size up 1/2 size) The red is a not orangey, brownish, or pinky-- it is a true red."
