Yes, it's a high heel, but this one is way more comfortable than most! Upper accented with criss-crosss leather pieces and a strap at the heel back. Has a delicate ankle strap for a graceful yet secure fit. EVA footbed is lined with cushy Memory Foam for extra cushioning and has a leather liner. A contemporary styled wooden outsole is very stable and has an anti-slip surface. This shoe is a bit heavier due to the wooden sole, but this adds great stability.
