I received the Goldie block heels with my Charlene shoes (as well as the Bonnie 2.5 heels, so I have 4 heel options total). These chunky heels are sturdy and there's no wiggle or "flex" in the heel at all. It's a fairly uniform glitter finish (in the light it's different shades of gold, no opalescent / alternate colors). I've tried to gently scratch at the finish, and the glitter doesn't easily fall away so it will be able to take some scuff and regular use! One great attention to detail about the accessory heels is that the higher the heel, the more angled the top edge is cut - so it fits naturally with the shape of your foot and the high heel visually doesn't stick out at an odd angle. There is a bit of tread at the bottom to prevent slippage too.
