I got these shoes as a gift and they are too small. I have never worn them, just tried them on. The blue ultrasuede color is fantastic and I really wish they fit. They are a size 38.5. Cri de Couer is a VEGAN shoe company and "The Collection consists of the highest quality vegan materials – including Ultrasuede made from recycled plastics, eco-PU that’s low-VOC, breathable and biodegradable, organic cotton, hemp and reclaimed wood and is committed to choosing vendors who abide by our ideals of earth-friendly manufacturing processes and fair treatment of workers." I own a few pairs of their shoes and the quality is great. They wear well and really last unlike a lot of other vegan shoes. Heel measures approximately 4" and platform measures approximately 1/2". I have trouble walking in heels but these are pretty easy to maneuver in and comfortable too. I can mail them to you if you pay for postage or you can pick them up in person.
