Returns:Free returns with minimum signs of wear and tear. Basically, you are welcome to try them on indoors for as long as you’d like! Please keep the protective covering on the bottom of the shoe until you are convinced you will keep them.
Exchanges:Free size exchanges, while there is still stock left. If you are between sizes, we recommend you buy two sizes and ship one back (so you can compare both sizes together).
Free returns and exchanges! What’s the catch?
Women deserve to try on heels before buying them, with peace-of-mind of zero obligation if they don’t work out. Although the industry average for return rates is 20%, Protege currently has a 6% return rate. This is also part of the reason we can confidently offer complimentary returns and exchanges.
These look very high! How can they be actually comfortable?
Although these are 4.3” tall (measured from the back of the heel), they feel more like a 3.5” wedge because they were designed by an MIT engineer who has walked miles in these heels herself. In fact, we challenge you to find another pair of stilettos at this height that are more comfortable.
What material are the stilettos made out of?
The stilettos uppers are made of sheep leather, which is known for being soft and conforming. The sole is made of non-slip resin to maximize traction.
Where are the stilettos made?
The stilettos are made in a small boutique factory in DongGuan, China that specializes in smaller collections. This allows us to upkeep high standards of quality, instead of having them mass-produced.
Does the toe post hurt?
No, the toe post is not painful. In fact, many women have reported that they don’t notice it at all! The toe post is a painless solution designed to keep your foot from sliding too far forward.
I have bunions, will these work for me?
They work for some people and not some others, depending on the location. If you are unsure, feel free to reach out (480779078three) so we can further evaluate and make a recommendation.
I have narrow feet, will these work for me?
Yes, the toe post prevents your foot from sliding too far forward
I have wide feet, will these work for me?
They will accommodate up to a medium-wide, as sheep leather will stretch slightly over time. If your feet are wider than a medium, they might take a couple of sessions to break in.
What future styles will you offer?
We are working on expanding colors, and styles! Currently we are developing a close-toed lower heel, per all your wonderful feedback. If you would like to be a beta tester, text “product test” to 480779078three.
