I love a chunky platform! The photos do not do these boots justice, they are a beautiful, shiny, oil slicked Vinyl. These boots are from Demonia (The picture has a pleaser USA water stamp). If you aren't familiar with Demonia's sizing, I am a 8.5 in most boots so I ordered a 9. Demonias have small toe boxes so if you have wide feet order a size up if you are between sizes. It's also good to know that these are very light weight for the amount of platform they have which is nice.
