In addition to the straps being attractive - they also hold the foot in place. Only the top strap has the buckle and it also has the stretch vent to help the foot get into the shoe. The black lacquer faceted heel height is 4.75 if measured from the back of the heel. The inside heel to toe measurement is 10.5.
Remember only to compare this to another similar shoe as this measurement varies widely. These beautiful size 39.5 pumps came from Saks in Beverly Hills and comes with their Jimmy Choo original box and dust cover. The shoes have never been worn and are in perfect condition.
This style seemed to run normal. I guarantee these are authentic Jimmy Choo shoes and a truly great price.
