Calling All Rockinghorse Shoes!

Alright, so I've been watching this comm for a while, and while there are extensive resources detailing the varieties of Rocking Horse Shoes, I was hoping if I could know, from your experience, what kinds had the feature I specifically wanted.  There are a lot of reviews out there, some from immediately after buying and some from a few months later, but I wasn't completely clear on how well some of these priorities were represented..

In particular:

-Soles that keep sturdy.  If they're foam but they really do deal well with heavy use, that's great. If they're wood and barely ever chip, that's fantastic
-Soles that actually let you stand on your tiptoes.  A lot of the RHS I've seen seem to be RHS in style only, cosplay oriented, and if I'm spending more than $50 on a pair of shoes, I'd prefer that they do what they claim to do.
-Sellers that get back to you reliably and effectively.
-Ribbons are detachable/replaceable for easier care, but don't put too much strain on the shoes.
-Shoes that are comfortable, and, as Vivienne Westwood said in an interview, "Quite stable."
