First things first. Despite the name, this shoe does not have a wooden platform. It is a man-made wood-look platform. Also note the upper is man-made as well, not leather, but you probably shouldn't expect leather at this price point anyway. The good news is that the platform is super light-weight, which is great for me b/c I bought the shoe to take with me on a trip overseas.
I bought both the white and the cognac. I am a 5 1/2 for most shoes and a 6 for others. This time the 6 was just right. The white fits fine, but the cognac was too narrow, even though they are supposed to be the same size.
I like the styling and the moderate heel height b/c I can wear it with anything from shorts to sundresses.
Yes, I recommend this product.
