First of all the padding in the heal is absolutely amazing. Your feel feel in heaven in them. No need for heal inserts at all!!
These shoes are very comfortable and convenient to slip on and off. However, due to there being no strap, it feels a little unstable/unsteady.
I had originally wanted the Olympian (with straps) not the Olympian mule, but they were out of stock.
This is my first year competing and I knew I wanted a shoe with an ankle strap that I could feel secure in while walking on stage. I've watched all kinds of competitors on Youtube talking about the shoes fairy and I finally looked into them when it came time to order. They have some of the most beautiful shoes and I chose the Olympians, the pictures made them look super comfortable and after wearing heals as much as I have I knew comfort was something I wanted. I ordered the Olympians they arrived quickly and in beautiful packaging and they truly are the most comfortable heels I've ever worn and I added the detachable ankle strap for added security while I'm on stage, but I now have a beautiful shoe and I am so excited for the show.
This is my second pair of competition heels. First pair was from Amazon. Decided to purchase these because I’ve heard such good reviews. Was very skeptical because I didn’t know what size I would be and I normally wouldn’t buy something from the US (I live in Canada so shipping rates and such are much higher). I was also worried that they wouldn’t fit me properly. I WAS SO WRONG!! Such an amazing shoe. Surprisingly extremely comfortable! Highly recommend!!!
Super comfortable and very easy to get used to walking in heels if you’re a first timer!
