These are wonderful shoes, give them a little time. The first time I wore them, they absolutely killed my feet. The second time was better, but still a bit painful by the fourth time wearing them, I could actually say that they were really comfortable. They are sturdy, which makes walking in the high heel easy even if you're not used to it. I so wish they had a black pair that was not patent. I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Too tight around the toes - The Nike Air Technology does not matter when the width is too narrow. The shoes cramp my toes and within 1 hour my toes are hurting so bad. I'm gonna need numbing cream on my toes to wear these. They look great, but they fit too tight around the toes and I tried getting a bigger size and that does not work. Now that I've worn them out, I'm stuck with these very expensive shoes! DO NOT BUY UNLESS YOU HAVE VERY NARROW FEET!

These are truly the most comfortable heels I've ever worn. I am a wedding coordinator and run around all day. I am able to wear them for hours a day. The only complaint I have is about the patent leather...it may just be me, but sometimes my feet touch while I'm walking and they stick together causing one of the shoes to come off because of the patent.

I love this shoe! I have a very high arch and I really need a Wide (C). When the only pair left is a Medium (B), I will do my best to make it fit. These will not stay on all day and they will be kicked off under my desk. So back they go. ;-( Aside from pinching my ugly-step-stepsister toes, these sling pumps do feel wonderful; and look gorgeous, extending your leg line, and improving your posture.

I purchased this shoe from another retailer before I realized that Zappos also carried it. I wanted to post my comments on the Zappos site just to acknowledge how great of a shoe this is. It does run a little snug; however, I still found this shoe to be absolutely, very, comfortable to wear. A very, stylish, classy and sexy pump.

Couldn't resist these... I have a weird thing for snakeskin shoes, and these did not disappoint. They are, like all the Nike Air Cole Haan pumps I own, are really comfortable. I get tons of compliments when I wear these.

Gorgeous shoe. Had to return it because I am seeking shoes that don't affect my neuroma after surgery, but would definitely keep them if it weren't for that.

These shoes are absolutely beautiful and very sexy! They look great with pants, jeans, and skirts! The bottoms of the shoes are quite slick. The strap kept slipping off my heel, but that was the only issue I had! They are lovely shoes.

Very sexy yet business like show I bought for work. Love them. They're a bit higher than I'd like (I'm 5'9 in Asia and with these, I'm a giant). I can't find any other shoes like them an inch shorter. The height does make them look better, of course, just not good for my back! They are comfortable, and I like being able to adjust them as they are a slingback and they have the buckle. I bought two pair and these and the putty colored ones. So pretty!

These are gorgeous in person and comfy. I'm kind of between a narrow and regular fit and I think these will do the trick once they are worn in a bit. They don't feel insanely narrow. Easy to walk in, even if you are high-heel challenged like me.

I haven't worn heels in more than 10 years. These felt terrific the moment I put them on. Not too high. Great padding in ball of foot. Fashionable and flexible.

These are beautiful shoes. They are much better than the picture, and the tan (pumice) leather is a great color. I ordered several alternatives and chose these over three other peep toe slingbacks in tan. They are so comfortable. I bought a half size larger than I typically wear, as Cole Haan shoes normally feel small to me. These are fabulous.

These are my most comfortable heels. They play dress-up beautifully, and they look great dressed down with a pair of slacks or jeans. The straps have four adjustment holes, and are the most comfortable around the heel of any sling-backs I\'ve ever owned.

Can\'t say enough about these shoes. They are beautiful. I bought 1\/2 size larger than what I usually buy and to tell you the truth, I think I should have been buying that 1\/2 size larger for a long time. Now back to the shoes. The Nike Air support is wonderful. All shoes should have that built in support. Beauty and comfort - You can\'t ask for much more than that!

These are a very pretty, classic pair of shoes. I love the peep toe, and the heel is the perfect height. High enough to be flattering, but not so high as to be wobbly. I was able to wear them comfortably all day at my son\'s Bar Mitzvah.

My favorite black heels ever! This is my second pair. The first pair lasted over 2 years and I am hard on shoes. They are very comfortable and can be worn year round.

Love these shoes! I had an event that I needed to have black slingbacks for, and I just couldn't find what I wanted. I was replacing a pair of black Coach slingbacks that I've had for years. I was looking everywhere and was feeling rather deflated. I was looking on the Cole-Haan website and found these shoes.....I thought they may work. I wondered, could I get them on Zappos, but quicker. I could and did! The first time on, they didn't hurt my feet....but I only wore them for a few hours. The next time I wore them a bit longer, no problem!. Yesterday I wore them to work and shopping...my feet hurt only a little bit!!! They look great with jeans and the best dresses...I usually wear Ann Taylor and White & Black Store clothes. I really like the height and patent look of the shoes. In the end they were a good replacement for my old Coach pumps -- I really wish I could replace them!

I have these shoes in mirrored silver, antique gold and black patent and I just love them! I have a very narrow foot and the narrows actually fit! But most importantly, they are super sexy in a very classy way. I wear them with pencil skirts and cocktail dresses and feel like a million bucks. I love the metal detail around the top of the heel. And the heel is high enough to be sexy but not so high that walking is uncomfortable. They will definitely put a little "strut" in your step!

Adorable shoes, I love the Cole Haan Nike Air technology! Shoes feel true to size, and the color is great for spring and summer. I think I might need to adjust the strap - seems to slip off the heel a little bit, but that is a minor point on an otherwise great shoe. And they came so fast -thank you Zappos!!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shoe. They are so cute and look fantastic. They gave me blisters at first, but now that we are getting used to each other, it's better. They aren't great for all day standing, but I'm pretty active (work in a hospital) and it's fine. Buy them.

Beautiful and comfortable. I am a fairly wide size 7 and these peep toes are perfect for me. They are comfortable even when standing for long periods of time. My only complaint is that they are darker than they look online and the pattern is more noticeable.
