Rated 2 out of 5Â by Shorty Won't last a month
I ordered these shoes in the red. The sizing was fine, but the quality was awful. I pulled them out of the box and the suede on the heel was already discolored from rubbing on the inside of the box! The heel is also suede, and it looks like it would get marked/discolored within an hour of wear. In general the cutouts made the shoe feel delicate, and then the suede appeared to be of low quality. So no way would I pay full price for these.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by yous elegant but...
These shoes look beautiful but they score low on comfort. I find this is the case with Anthro in general. Style precedes practical concerns like arch support. These shoes have none btw. I could tell when I put them on and walked around my living room. My feet were complaining within minutes. A foot petal insert helped a lot (I have a very low tolerance for impractical heels). I am keeping them because they are so elegant. The circle cut outs and the soft velvety material are delicate and flattering. Distinctive and classic. The heel is just thick enough to be supportive but doesn't appear clunky at all. I am a 8-8.5. The 39 was a little big on me. I went with 38.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by slumberjakki These are a gorgeous set of heels that I would argue do look and feel expensive (as opposed the other reviewer's comments below). Like any white/red suede shoe though, they will probably take some pre-maintenance if you want them to last, so I would use a suede protection spray on these (at least on the heels).
These shoes, however, do run big. I'm usually a 6, and they fit like a 7. I also imagine the leather is going to stretch over time, so I'm going to exchange these for a new pair--ugh.
All in all, I'm so excited to finally wear them. They are classic and distinctive--I think they're going to become my new signature shoe!
