I'm rating these based on 7 months of wearing them as my main shoes for teaching. I had a previous pair of Miz Mooz shoes that lasted a long time and were great. I usually buy one pair a year because they're comfy and cute. The first thing I didn't like about these shoes was that they made a very loud clicking sound. I wish there were free returns because I probably would have returned them for that. My other ones had soft soles which were nicer and more durable. The other issue is that the tip of the heel came off after about 5 months of wearing them. I have to take it to a cobbler and have it repaired for about 20 bucks. Not sure it's worth it. Anyway, I don't feel I got my money's worth with these shoes compared to the countless other Miz Mooz shoes I've bought over the years.
