Not better than Leverage Overall Product Rating (3 out of 5) 3/26/2012 By cleroux My first pair was the Leverage style and the best shoe I had ever worn- easy to put on and comfortable the whole day. The Shelton looks good but I am less pleased with it though for one reason: the heel is too high. Hush Puppie's Reply: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are sorry to hear that the Shelton was not your cup of tea. We feel that both styles are fantastic, but the heel is definitely a little higher on the Shelton. Please feel free to send these back for an exchange if you would like. Was this review helpful?
