The Pirate surprised me with these babies. They're the perfect pair of heels for Spring time fun. Measuring about 4" high, with no platform and minimal cushion in the sole, walking is pretty easy peasey. Then again, I've only trotted around with them on, inside the house. Can't wait to take them for a spin. Thanks, Pirate boo, you definitely know the way to my heart. tee hee!
