Way back in the 1970s I had a pair of platform jandals very similar to these:
The soles were almost identical, but the top bit was suede, where these have a sort of suede-y fabric instead. I wore those things until they were falling to pieces and then looked and looked for a long time to find replacements. It took about 20 years, but I finally found these. They are not as nice as my suede originals, but they're not too bad.
