I've chosen them because of practical reasons. They are ok looking but my first criteria was the fact that I could walk in them without thinking that I can fell at every step.
They have a platform and since I have them I haven't slipped at all. That's a must in winter, isn't it?
The leather is great and they are very comfortable. You can also notice the zippers on the lateral sides. They really annoy me because they make a noise hitting each other when I walk. Other than that I'm glad I bought them.
