When you shop at ALOHAS, you take a stand against:
All of our shoes are crafted out of Leather Working Group Certified Leather. This means, sustainable leathers, low impact dying thus less pollution.
I want to start by saying I am NOT a heels gal. I rarely choose to wear heels, and pretty much only own them for formal occasions. I bought these in Spritz (more tan than orange) to be a comfortable nude heel for summer / fall weddings to come. Because I rarely wear heels, I thought a chunky, 2 inch heel would be a comfortable solution. I love the heel- it's very comfortable, and I feel confident I can wear this heel height for a full day on my feet. However, the banding on the toes is TOUGH. I don't have particularly wide feet, but they're not narrow either, and the little balls on the bands dig into the pressure points on the sides of my feet, and start hurting very quickly. I've worked in shoes before, and these are leather, so I do feel confident that the band will stretch out a bit, and get more comfortable after a few wears, so I am currently wandering around my kitchen in heels and sweatpants, breaking these in. 4 stars because they are beautiful and well-made, and the heel is very comfortable. I'm taking one star off because the barbed-wire toes are more cute than practical, and I don't think the design was thoroughly thought out.
