I purchased a pair of Vadda Platform Boots and they fit me well. They are snug around my calves and give the back of my heels comfort and the heel gives me strong balance. These boots actually go well with skinny jeans or a black miniskirt with a moto jacket and handbag that presents a statement. I have been looking for a pair of platform boots that doesn't look flimsy but fashionable. These platforms fit the bill. Great boots Nine West!!
