The JMC wedges look slightly better by design, but I was willing to give these a try since I haven't been able to snag a size 5 in the Saga wedges at a good price to see if they fit. I've never been able to wear Calvin Klein shoes due to my very narrow heels, so I didn't have high expectations when they arrived. Here's a few photos:
....and they actually fit! *shocked* And you know what that means--they're not going back.
The full breakdown:
Look: These shoes are actually very nice. They are made of calfskin, so have a bit of a shiny leather look to them, but not quite patent. These CK wedges are a bit taller in height than the Saga wedges. They are 2.75" high, while the Sagas are 2.25". It has a stacked wooden wedge heel with rubber/plastic sole that looks a bit strange with the name plastered all over the bottom, but since it's the sole and it likely won't be seen, I won't worry about it. There is also no toe cleavage and the pointed toe isn't too pointy, giving it a nice classic shape that can be worn for years to come.
Comfort: This shoe has more padding in the footbed than most of my other heels. Without having worn them for a full day just yet, these feel really good so far.
Quality: Good quality shoe. I'm not always a fan of kidskin leather, but the construction itself looks good. I'm wearing these later in the week for a business meeting that will require some walking to get to the destination, so we'll see how they hold up and how they feel after that.
Fit/Sizing: A bit on the narrow side overall, but the length is TTS. My regular pump size is 6, and I take a size 6 in these. Since I'm not walking out of these shoes, the heel is very narrow,. If you have super narrow heels like mine and have trouble finding a pair of pumps that will actually grip on to your feet, give these a try!
Verdict: Keep. No question. I'm super happy with these thus far. I really needed a good walking heel for those times when I don't have the option of changing shoes for my commute. Hopefully these don't break down like my last pair of heels that I was super excited about. I'll keep you updated.
