What sold me on this shoe, and particularly the color, is that it had this edgy pointed toe that brings the fashion forwardness you can’t really get away with in a professional setting normally. The fact that it fades into your leg while elongating it makes this shoe a complete must have basic for any girl’s shoe closet. Having that edgy almond-shaped pointed toe is that little detail that distinguishes your whole outfit taking it from just being professional to being stylishly fashion forward. It has a generous 1 ½” platform to create a 4 ¾” heel making you really seem like you have legs that go on forever. Major bonus no matter you are (or aren’t)! And despite the seemingly scary height, it’s actually quite easy to walk it. This was one of my first 4” platforms and so I was apprehensive the first few times I wore them. I was pleasantly surprised that the extra platform really adds an extra layer of shock absorbency to make these very wearable. As always, Aldo doesn’t have half sizes and the shoes tend to run a bit small, so going up a size if you’re a half size is usually a great fit.
So the lesson here is if you want to take your outfits up a notch while not going too far, go for a nude shoe with edgy details, then you will have a great basic that will definitely not be boring. :)
