Very comfortable shoe. Feet fit comfortably into the shoe and does not feel "to high" in the placement. Does not cut off your blood circulation yet stays firmly on the foot and feels steady while walking. Wedge is approx. 4" high measured from the back to the top of the wedge (not the top of shoe). Shoe measures approx. 7 1/2" tall measured from the back to the highest point. These do not allow for much air flow so your feet can get rather warm while wearing them. Not good for hot days but anything mid 70's and below is fine. Fit was true to size for me, I wear 9.5W. Very stylish with both jeans with wide cut bottoms as well as leggings. Would definitely recommend to others!
