I have searched Zappos for a black shoe...of course, not just any old shoe...the perfect black leather heel for me. Trouble was, I didn't know exactly what I wanted. Round toes, pointy toes, platform, no platform, 2 1/2" to 3" heel...arghhh. (Drew
the line at an open or peep toe
; they do not work for me.) I'm 61 with bad knees, a bad back and bunions but I have good legs and want to stay stylish as long as possible! I ordered and returned, ordered and returned...poor Zappos. And then I decided to try a low, kitten heel (which I think only looks good with a pointy toe but not a witch's toe, aka a roach killer)...not too much to choose from but here it is and it's perfect! I wear a 6M or 6W depending on the shoe and I went with a 6W...fits like a dream and very comfortable. The little ruching or pleated effect across the vamp keeps it from being the boring same old, same old. I have one small complaint. What is it with this brand when it comes to smell? These are leather shoes
, granted, not expensive leather but any Fitzwell
I've ever ordered, smells like rancid plastic. Luckily, these are almost smell free after only a few days of airing out of the box. Ladies, throw that box away. The stink will stay in the cardboard forever. Thank you Zappos! Loved them so much that I ordered a back-up pair.
