A chunky heel is a thick, solid built heel that normally does not taper much and often resembles a stacked block. Chunky heels are generally more comfortable to wear than other heel types such stilettos and are often chosen for the added support and stability they provide on high heeled footwear. Chunky heels are available in different heights and shapes and can be found on a wide variety of shoe styles.
Earthies Ensenada Runs short and narrow
May 28, 2013
Reviewer: SIR from Texas
I tried the Earthies Ensenada in the black calf, unsuccessfully. I have a slightly wide foot, but wear shoes in a medium width. Yet this shoe was tight, both at the toe and the instep. I do not have a high instep. Also, I wear an 8.5 or 9 shoe, ordered the 9, and they are too short. I squeezed my toes into the too narrow toe area, reached the front of the shoe, and could only barely zip up the back zipper on the shoe. From my experience, this shoe is a half size short, but these are my first Earthies brand. I couldn't appreciate the arch support because the arch of the shoe was too far forward for my foot. Basically nothing about this shoe works for me, and I returned them.To those considering a purchase, I call attention to the shape of the toe area; it is pointed. My feet are a bit more square at the toe.
