Also, so madly in love with these shoes. With the front platform the heel height is pretty comfortable and the front flap means they're still nicely snug for my narrow feet. I usually wear lace-up shoes because most heels are made too wide and my feet can't stay in them properly. These aren't lace-ups, but I still feel quite secure in them: win-win. The fact that they remind me of librarians and octogenarians is just an added bonus.
