I wore these shoes for weeks of rehearsals for "Anything Goes", and they held up beautifully. The flexible sole made them seem like slippers, and since I am not normally a "heel" wearer, the fact that I'm telling you that they're comfortable is a HUGE complement to the vendor!
Additionally, I was in a three-month run of rehearsals and 22 performances of "White Christmas". I wore these shoes for 6 scenes and never once felt like I wanted to take them off. They spin and turn with ease, the heels are solid, and they're silent as you walk backstage. The only issue is that you will need to have the strap shortened and have an Ahl to make new holes. I think it cost me $10 at the shoe repair place. Well worth every penny! Oh, and they are NEUTRAL, despite the gold and silver!
