You would be crazy not to buy these shoes. Let me start off by saying that I have over a dozen of Kate Spade Karolina, and only Karolinas. Weddings, parties, girls’ night out, work - I have not found one occasion I couldn't wear these shoes. I travel around the world for work, and these shoes are dependable as can be. Hills, pavements, slippery floors, etc - the shoes are stable and comfortable as always. The only thing I would complain about it is that Kate Spade never holds the same colors for more than a season, so if you are in love with a certain color of the Karolina (for me, it was the silver satin), you better buy a few pairs because they will never release that same color/texture again. And the other thing is, probably due to the fact that I wear these shoes 8+ hours every day, after work, and weekends I find myself having to replace a new pair every year. But in terms of the money you can save from foot massages. This shoe is worth every penny.

I wear 8½W. I purchased these shoes in wide, but they are very narrow. They did not fit well at the back and came off, and were tight in the front. I am sending them back. They are not very comfortable either, and look average.

Wow! These pumps are not only comfortable, but sexy and elegant. I bought the black satin in 6.5 and wish to buy more in the near future. I can't believe I can walk around for hours in them with no fatigue. Keep 'em coming in a variety of colors.

Love these shoes, have them in purple suede and they are super comfortable for heels. There's no breaking them in!

The perfect round toe pump! These shoes are VERY true to size... they have the perfect heel (high 3.5", but not too high 4") and the perfect rounded toe... not TOO round, but definitely a rounded toe. I could not be happier with these shoes - they are classic and timeless!

I'd buy them in every colour if I could afford it! I got a great deal a while ago and bought 2 pairs of these Karolina's, a brown croc and pink croc, and they are my FAVORITE shoes! Doesn't take very long to break them in and they're so comfy and stylish that I wear them all the time, even with jeans on casual days. Also comfy enough that I wear them when I know I'll be walking for a while. I am already looking to purchase several more pairs in other colours as soon as I can afford it! I agree with the other review that the tips on the heels do wear down pretty quick since they are plastic, but I just had them retipped recently so it's a small repair that was totally worth it for the shoe!

This shoe is quite comfortable considering it has a very high heel. I have the camel patent and I wear them with floral summery dresses and a lot of navy blue. I absolutely love them and I recommend then to anyone who can walk in a high heel.

Worth every penny - These shoes were my first purchase from Zappos and I was not disappointed. I'm tired of buying cheapo shoes that hurt my feet or don't fit right or fall apart after only a few uses. I can tell these heels will be a part of my wardrobe for a very long time. They look sexy, elegant and sleek, and could go with just about any outfit. You could wear them to the office, out to the club, or even to church. I normally can't stand a heel higher than 3 inches, but this one feels very natural and comfortable. I'm looking forward to all the compliments I know I'll be getting when I wear them!

Great shoe! I got this shoe in "steel snake" (a dark silver) to wear in my wedding. It's as comfortable as a heel that high can be, and looks fabulous. A ZZ Top woman would be proud to wear it.

New Favorite Shoes! I absolutely adore this shoe! I ordered it in both silver and red and kept the silver. It is truly beautiful and expensive looking in silver. The red was pretty, too, but not as good/expensive looking as the silver version. FYI - there is toe cleavage so if that bothers you, be aware!

I swooned when I opened the box! I didn't want to like them because they are expensive but they are just too gorgeous AND comfortable to send back. This ruby crocco looks good with so many things it's a jazzy neutral, basic. The shape of the shoe is classic & makes the foot look elegant. I saw them on Sarah Palin too & I justify the price because I will wear them to pieces. Stunning shoes! Fit true to size to.

Comfortable pump! This is a really cute shoe, but also very comfortable (for a pump) - I wore it all night, including lots of walking, and my feet didn't hurt at all. I have it in silver but might also get it in black because it's such a nice basic shoe.

Sarah Palin wore this shoe for her debate! I loved it on her, so I also got the ruby, looks beautiful with black. I normally have to go up a half size in Kate Spade, but did not with this one, true to size. Very comfortable, but still sexy and feminine. Zappos is sooo fast!

Versatile and Attractive Shoe - I love these heels. They're really beautiful, tasteful and stylish. I love that they go with almost everything! On the downside, I can't walk a lot in them because they get uncomfortable, but this could be largely due to the fact that I don't wear heels very often. Maybe I'm just not used to it yet.

Comfy & Sexy!! Love these shoes!! I also bought 2 more Kate Spade shoes because these are so terrific. The shoes look very sexy. I can't believe how comfortable they are especially given the height of the heel. I am more comfortable in these than most of my other shoes that are lower.

Wedding Shoes - I bought these in ivory satin for my wedding and they looked gorgeous. I wore them around the house for about a week just to make sure they were broken in for dancing and being on my feet all night, and they were great. Absolutely wonderful and classic. I am not used to spending so much for shoes, but for me these were worth the money.

Comfortable and flattering - I ditto the comment by the customer who said these shoes are also great for those who appreciate heels even if over 35. I am 52 and these shoes are very comfortable, and the heel height is very flattering. I rarely wear less than a 3" heel and these allow me to be comfortable at the same time. The toe is a little more rounded than I would prefer (more of an almond shape would suit me better). But, given the other attributes, they are still a winner. The camel suede is a great neutral that will go with everything.

These shoes are fine for the average 21-35 year young woman, but what about the women over 35 who are looking for comfort and style. Why in the world don't you style shoes with the same style of the 3-4 inch heels in 1-2 inch heels. I love your shoes but they are not practical for women over the age of 35

I love the shoe - I wish I had purchased a heel that was 1 inch shorter, better to dance in. I am very happy with the shoe.

WOW!!! I love these! I love these so much that I own almost all colors and fabrics available... been hunting to see if I can get them in other colors. This is hands down the most comfortable, reasonably priced shoes found anywhere... thank you Kate Spade for this wonderful everyday work shoe that looks great and feels great at the same time!

These are the best shoes - These shoes are comfortable even with this heel height. Buy one pair and you'll want to own them in all the colors.
