I saw these and had to order them; always wanted a wedge shoe! I was really disappointed when I saw the shoe in person. The material on the back of the shoe is like a rubber boot and shiny; it just doesn't belong and for it being an Aldo shoe, it makes the shoe look cheap. There are two zippers on each shoe!! When you have the shoe on, there's a zipper on the left side and right side. The right shoe, for example, the left side is a black plastic zipper that goes straight up and down, very hard to zip both up and down. I didn't try the gold zipper as I knew I was returning the shoe. Size runs large - first time trying on a true wide shoe. I'm 8.5/9 and I bought 8.5, if I ordered a different size, it would be 7.5. I must say, the shoe is very comfortable! I walked in my house with them on wanting to love them, and other than being too big, they are really comfortable. I tried the thickest socks I have and still too big. I'm giving two stars for speedy delivery - very impressed - and comfort.
