"These shoes are a beautiful berry red suede, so pretty and flattering. Although they are quite high, the hidden platform makes them more comfortable and easier to walk in than a typical 4+ inch heel might be. I usually wear a 6.5, but I always go for a 7 in European designer shoes because they tend to run small, especially in the toe area. The construction of these shoes is superb, as they are well balanced and cushiony. I especially love the golden Prada emblem on the arch of the sole!"
