These are the type of shoes, in my opinion, that certain people might laugh at -- "THEY cost $350?! What were you thinking? They are slippers. Almost elf-like. Almost moonwalk-ish." Well, well...I would have to strongly disagree. I adore the shape of this shoe...and I can only imagine how comfortable they are. I just love these shoes and could wear them every day.
