I bought this pair of boots from Victorias Secret several years ago. Im happy CL is still selling them! Let me tell you, the pictures do not do these justice. Once on, if the leg fills them out, they look much more expensive than they do in a photo or off the leg. Im a huge proponent of only buying real leather because I hate the plastic way fake leather tends to look. In this photo, it has that look! But once you have them on, even though any trained eye could see they arent real leather, they still just look great. Ive worn them so much that I had to have the heel life replaced--twice. Theyre sexy without looking like you just walked off a stripper pole. Bit of style advice though, the slight sheen makes them definitely more of a night shoe than day. In my opinion And best part, the cone heel and rounded toe make them crazy comfortable for a pair of heels. Its also the more modest shape of the foot of the shoe that makes them classier than similar platform pairs.
