Since it is summer, I tend to wear these Merona Black Strappy Sandals frequently. I love that they are black; they go with many things. I also like the unique sole. The sole is covered with an embossed floral pattern.
The shoes are more of a wedge-style heel versus a pointed stiletto. I prefer wedges because there is more surface area to step with when walking, which usually limits "tipping over." Also, pointed stiletto heels can get caught in holes in grating or the sidewalk.
For a heel, I think these are moderately comfortable. The inside lining of the shoe adds comfort. The black and tan part of the inner portion is soft-feeling, padded and cushy. The heel height is two inches. If I have to walk a medium to long distance or wear these for a long length of time, I do feel some discomfort in my arch, ankles and the tops of my feet.
I have had these for a couple of years, and they look surprisingly good!
