... What they had in my 4 inch ranged was the Soda Agenda in black.  I have the burgundy version (see below) and I decided to get the black too.  These Agendas are easy to walk in and great for the winter and wet.

Given the obvious platform and the apparent heel height, you are not getting your required 4"+ rise with these, surely?

You are right, only 3.75 inch difference, which is the lowest end, but on a rainy day these are keep me from slipping.  I'm not particularly happy with that uneasy feeling you get when your stilettoes start to slip on the wet polished floor.

This is the exact reason I do not wear, will not wear, new shoes to my favored grocery store until I've done some reconnaissance, stilettos or not. The polished tile there is the ultimate test of slippery heels! If money were no object, I would replace all of my new heels with Vibram or some such hard rubber before I ever wore the shoes outside. Some shoes come with this OEM, but not many.

New OnlyMaker cowboy boots today. Size 12US and the fit like a glove. Really comfortable and easy to walk in for a almost 4inch heel. Can’t wait to wear them, maybe exposed and not with jeans covering the heel. That would be a massive step and confidence bump.

They look good!   But can we please see some close-ups of the boots?   I assume size is USW12 = UK10?

They are UK10/EU43/US12. They fit like a glove, they suck your feet in and are snug and secure. Am going to wear them tonight for a gig, fully exposed heel. I feel this will give a confidence lift and more!!!

Her are my latest.  They are Jennifer Lopez brand, and the model is belle.  The have a hidden platform, and the heels measure just under 5 inches.  And the bes part is I got them in a thrift for 20 bucks!

Ever since I got my Marc Fisher Neela2 boots, I've been wearing block heeled over the knee boots exclusively both at home & in my outings due to the comfort of walking with a larger heel. 

Recently, I've been looking for a pair that are over the knee but have pointy toes. 

Fortunately, I found these lovely Onlymaker boots on Amazon & they have my size so I ordered them immediately! It's a bonus that they have the string at the back so that I can tighten them for a sleek look when worn with tight jeans. 

Now, it's a 2 week wait for them to arrive!

Well, I managed to kill one of the heels on my Nine west stiletto ankle boots, much the same damage as I did to my Sam Edelman boots.  These onlymaker boots with stronger heels look great, would love to try a pair.  D

Are you saying that you snapped another heel clean in half? You know, I've never broken a heel before. I've had them come a little loose, but never actually broken one. I always seem to break the shanks, which, when that happens, you might as well have broken the heel.

Do tell, here or elsewhere, what happened to your Nine Wests.

It's been my experience that if you take long strides you put more bending moment on your heel. Heel first is the proper walk but if your shifting your well well before the rest of your foot reaches the ground then the heel carries too much weight before its square to the ground. That's why the higher the heel the shorter the step.

I had to refresh my present recollection about the physics definition of "moment" to understand your post, but it was worth it. Went down a rabbit hole of other somewhat obscure "useless" information as well. Thanks for that! In any case, there is another factor, which we don't really like to talk about, and that is the force exerted on the shoe even at rest. I think I've gotten away with a lot of things because I only weigh 130 lbs. I've broken quite a few shanks, but that's always been after extensive wear (or an identifiable incident, in one case). In addition, ankle flexibility does make life easier on your shoes.

Yeah, kind of figured I need to shed a few pounds in order to stop killing my heels.

Was gonna wear them to a gig. Didn’t, as I just couldn’t stand as I’d killed my legs with exercise that day, didn’t feel comfortable.

Been working constantly since, so no time really.

Might have time soon.

Needed a pair of boots that were comfortable, warm and practical at work and for driving to work. Found these brand new at a local charity shop (6£). Block heel isnt my usual style (prefer stiletto), but they did appeal to me.

Looks great - I think the heels are called "blade heels"...

Wealth is not measured by how much you have, but rather how little you need.

Hello.

My boyfriend just told me that he bought me this pair of cowboy boots. I love how well I have taught him: he finally learned what to do.☺️

I really want to wear them with my bootcut jeans and leather blazer.

They have a 10 cm high heel. Size 10 USA W, wide.

Waiting for shipment!
