Very comfortable and in style
I love these shoes and wear them for work and leisure. They are handcrafted so the first pair I received had a hidden defect (stud nail poking in through the side into the soft footbed that I only noticed once I put them on and stood), but with one phone call the pair was easily replaced.
They are wooden-soled platform shoes, so those with ankle/walking issues may want to steer clear of these. But if you want height without feeling like you are on your tip-toes, these are a great option to dress up or down.
I have high arches and high top of the foot and these fit perfectly. If you have flat or thin feet, the fit may be a little loose.
I purchased them during a sale so the value was excellent, but full price is more than I would usually spend on shoes, thus the "good" rating.

Totally adjustable ankles!
These shoes appear to be of excellent quality. Nice leather and real wood, but not too heavy. I was pleasantly surprised to find the ankle closure does not need to be unbuckled because it's Velcro. This allowed me to get it small enough for my tiny ankles. The size was a bit "off" as I felt like my heel and toe were barely in the shoe in my usual 8.5, yet my foot was sliding forward a bit because the width was a little big. Not enough of a problem to make me return them, as they are super cute and very comfortable (I wore them around the house to do some laundry and ironing just to be sure).
