I bought These in the Zara sale, they took over 2 weeks to arrive, now trying to justify keeping them but wondering where I am realistically going to wear them. Can no longer remember why I thought it was a good idea but they do make my feet look v elegant but just can't help thinking they are a bit stripper-esque. opinions please- keep or return!

Bedroom only!

Ooh I like them! But bedroom or clubbing (if you do that..?!) I reckon. Or maybe with a long evening dress.

Oh I want!, sold out in my size though.

I couldn't walk in them though. For laying down only! grin

Umm, i've really gone off platform shoes, I used to live in them, they just look tacky now (maybe I'm getting old)... i'd send them back.

Somewhere you could take a taxi to, then sit down?

To a restaurant or bar where car to seat is about 10 steps otherwise bedroom

They look unwearable, but could be used as a weapon. Smuggle them on a flight and stab people in the eye.

I love stripper shoes - I'm only short and they make me feel/look loads better on a night out so I tell myself. I think they really make an outfit.

Wear them for dinner or at bars - at £20 they're worth keeping, even if you don't get the chance to wear them much.

Gorgeous. I'd kill myself in them within three minutes. However, if you are much less clumsy than I, wear them anywhere - but taxi there and back!

have paraded around the room in them just, surprisingly comfy as I went up a size and don't feel as high as they look. Just cannot decide but do really appreciate your comments especially Pretzel which made me giggle.
Think Zara allow 31 days for returns so will keep thinking about what to do.
