The Dialion Bootie from The Palatines is gorgeous! And the feedback we've gotten from people who've tried it on is that this shoe, even with the 4" heel, feels stable, well-balanced and comfortable. We've fully embraced lighter nudes, in this case - tan for winter wear. Especially love with a monochromatic look. Beautiful on the foot. Our fit model who wears a US size 8.5 would take the size 8.5 in this shoe.
