    Promising review: "My sister recommended these wedges to me for wearing at work since I am on my feet a lot but still have to have a dressy shoe, and my goodness, I could seriously wear these shoes all day long! They are fabulous! It's like wearing nothing at all... They don't squish my toes or the sides of my feet, they are so easy to walk in for the size of those heels, and they don't even rub my ankles like other ankle booties that I own. I am a huge fan of these boots, and I am recommending them to all my friends! If you need a stylish neutral shoe, this is it!" —kacieD

I will be getting more in many different colors. Do remember these are FLATS, so there is not a lot of cushion, so I cannot imagine walking around a fair in them would be comfortable.

    Promising review: "I've been wanting some Chelsea rain boots for a long time now, and these are PERFECT for the price. $25 for nice rainboots is for sure a steal, and the rubber on these is super pliable and comfortable for day-long wear. I will say the sizing isn't perfect; I fall between an 8-9 depending on the brand, but generally find my feet to be closer to a 9. Since there aren't half sizes, I went with the 9 here, and it is definitely a little too large. If you're a borderline size like me, you may want to go on the smaller side instead." —Amazon Customer

Actually I was a little surprised that they zipped on both sides which was a plus. They are perfect with jeans, shorts, etc. I love them." —Duy Le
