Prepare Hi |
John wanted to take the Prepares to new heights. With a 4" curved heel and a 1" platform, The Steady finds a new altitude (and attitude). The Steady slip-on shoe features an oversized front elastic gusset, a bold toe outseam design,
durable waxed suedes, and a rubber treaded sole to keep you steady. The high heeled Steady is a fashionista shoe rich in texture and designed with swooping curves. Steady as she goes! Prepare to Rise Up.

A great shoe. Most ladies have been getting the smaller of the two if they are a half size, as they fit a little bit big.

Of course, I was too excited to read that I should have gotten the 8 instead of the 9, being that I wear an 8 1/2. I still LOVE LOVE LOVE my purple/plum 5 inch vogs! They are as comfortable as my friends sneakers, and I can run all day in them. My heel may slip some, but I wear them just like a clog. If you are on the fence about buying these, GET THEM!!! The only time I took them off was to wear my Bing Boots! I am into the high teens now as far as how many I have, I think...I try to hide some from my husband!!!

Oh So Pretty in Purple!
Stunning shoe! I have a pair of Leaders, Hi Spur and now this pair of Purple Hi Steadies in my Prepare collection. The most comfortable shoe I've ever owned! I love that they make me taller without the discomfort of a high heeled shoe! The waxed suede is just gorgeous.

Prepare for the best!
I have been lusting after these shoes for the entire season! my heartbreaking decision came when I had to decide between the fabulous black and the penultimate purple! I erred on the side of conservative and walked with the black ones. But I put a mojo on the purple ones so they will be mine!!!!

Fits large...but uber comfy!
I just came back from the store after having tried on a dozen or so pairs of shoes (and bought two) and these while super comfortable run quite large. I guess it's because they only come in whole sizes but when I tried on the size 7s without much expectation, (since I'm normally a 8 in most Vogs) they were perfect! The elastic portion is great for people like me who have a high instep. Glad I tried them on in the store!

I love these shoes, but contrary to what some others have said, I found them to fit true to size, not large at all. In fact, I had ordered a size down and had to exchange for my usual size.

I had been watching these since they were first a tantalizing sneak peak. I planned to get them in purple, but find myself the happy owner of a 'yellow' (which is more 'European mustard gold') pair which will be a nice contrast all the purple in my wardrobe. I wear a 6.5 in Bellevues, Daily Miracles and my beloved Prepared Scouts, but the 6 in the Steady fits like a GLOVE. As the name suggest, they are steady, easy to wear, ever SO comfortable, and I'm 5'8" in them! Wowza. Most excellent "I was accepted for my Masters" celebratory shoe. They arrived yesterday, I've worn them all day at work today, and they still feel as good as when I put them on. Love 'em (and may need to eventually add the purple, too)! :-) Thanks Preet!

My coworker Cory named these the "Disco Dutch" shoes as soon as he saw these pieces of yellow goodness! I adore the comfortable fit - and these are shockingly comfortable to wear. I get stopped every time I wear them. I'm a true 9.5 and bought a 9. Excellent if you have a high arch, as the elastic vamp creates a custom fit.

Can I marry my shoes? I almost wish I could - I got these because they have such a cool look, but kind of figured they would be too high or uncomfortable. But I HAD to at least get them to try them on. Now, of course, you couldn't pry them away from me! I can't believe how a shoe that looks so cool and like a work of art, is so comfortable! I can't believe the height of this heel I'm walking on as if it's a flat! I got the purple, and hope to get the black - and will want any other shoe that is similar in style!!!! I probably won't drive the car in them, or walk the mall even though you probably could - but can obviously wear them a lot. I wear a size 6-6.5 in regular shoes and 6.5 or 7 in Vogs and folks say these run large so was nervous buying a 6.5 which is all Amazon had left. But it fits perfect. And I have wide feet which have plenty of room - so was definitely Karma. They really fit like a purple suede glove!!! Is it wrong to love my shoes so much? Nah

Really doesn't get any better than these, I got them in yellow & now my feet shout SPRING! Such happy cheery shoes to bring a little dance to every step.

I bought my shoes in Gastown... I love, love, love them. They look great with leggings and dresses up a casual outfit. I walk at a good clip in them so I don't even think they are as high and sexy as they are !!
