When I took this shoe out of the box I was apprehensive about the pointed toe. I thought "no way" is this going to fit me. I wear a 10W but chose to get a 10.5M because my size was not an option. I was pleasantly surprised that not only were they very comfortable for the first wear, but even though the toe was very pointy when you're wearing them it doesn't pinch at all... anywhere! Very happy.

Great looking shoe. Fit wonderfully in the toe box, but it felt as though my foot (therefore body) were leaning backwards. Not comfy or healthy. Returned. Try the Calvin Klein Anna's instead.

I love these shoes! I bought them for work and I just feel like a superwoman when I put them on. They really make your outfit pop. Now I have to say that the toe box is a tad narrow, but if I don't walk that much it's fine. If I have to walk a lot during the day, the little toe on my right foot gets a little sore, but not enough to be a real big deal. Love these shoes!

I think what the other reviewers are interpreting as extra comfort room in the toe just makes the shoe look funny when it was on my foot. The pointed toe was way, way out in front...the shoe feels/looks so much longer than my other pointed toe heels. Too clown shoe-y. Toe cleavage, too. Too bad, because I love the gunmetal/snake finish. The pictures here show it well...it is blingy without being glittery, very cool.

This is an elegant shoe but I returned it. It looked too long on my foot. I wear a size 9 1/2. It would suit someone with a smaller foot.

I am returning them only because they show too much toe cleavage for my taste. Otherwise, so cute for a night out or work. Comfortable and perfect size heel if you are going to be on your feet all night. Classic black pump.

It was such a pleasure to get these beautiful pumps with kitten heels. They felt pretty comfortable right at the first try. They go with many outfits and I have received compliments on them.

Nice shoe, however, the toe box reveals too much of my toes and it isn't attractive.

Got these in patent taupe and regular black. I absolutely love these shoes...when I'm standing still. When I walk, it's a whole 'nother story. Swish-slop, swish-slop, fart, swish-slop - pretty much sums up what my shoes sound like when I walk. I know wearing hose could remedy this, but nope, not wearing hose with these shoes. Not doing it. So that is why I give these shoes a lower overall rating compared to the style and comfort ratings. And I have yet to find another review for this shoe that addresses this issue, so maybe it's just me. Super disappointed.

Bought these to wear to my graduation which required hours of standing and waiting in line. I had never worn them until that day, and I must stay they withstood the comfort test, as they didn't leave any blisters, and never hurt my feet all day. Looks professional, and is comfortable. What more could you want?

I did end up keeping these although they just don't seem to have the workmanship I'd expect from this brand and this price. Still, they are comfortable and serve their intended purpose. Nothing special.

Beautiful and exactly the low heel I was looking for this season. They are a bit narrow and uncomfortable across the ball of my foot, but maybe they will break in.

Very pretty shoe with shiny patent letter with a small heel that looks like wood. They are too pointed for me with a narrow toe box and also very stiff. I'm typically a size 71/2 M and I would need a size 8.

These shoes are very narrow and run small. I do not have a wide foot, but could barely squeeze my foot into these shoes. They run small, so ordering a size up is recommended. In addition they look very long due to the extremely pointed and long tip. I suppose it's ok for someone tall, but at 5'4" I looked a bit like wearing clown shoes. These were not for me. They are going back.

COMFORTABLE! My #1 requirement of any shoe at this point in my life. Stylish. I am tall, so don't need a really high heel -but wanted shoes that were cute to wear to my daughter's graduation in NYC. These fill the bill.

This is such a lovely shoe. After all the great reviews I was sure it would be The One. It started perfectly, but after about four hours in the office, it started rubbing my toes. Before long I was limping and walked barefoot out to my car. Maybe I've developed a wide foot. The size didn't seem to be the problem, only the width in the toe area. Unfortunately I can't try a wide because they are out of it in my size. So glad Zappos is so good about returns.

Shoe is pretty, but like most footwear today, it's too wide at the heel and slips off when walking. (In vintage shoes you'll see that one width option was B/AA so you got the B in front and a narrower heel. This was very common.) I was hoping that wouldn't happen since I have the "Lala" flats and they fit great. Also -- I am not fond of toe cleavage but I could live with that. But it sort of fit so that any bunions you have are just outside the shoe, somewhat highlighting them. Nope. Returning, I'm sorry to say.

I was a little skeptical about these shoes at first, but I knew I needed a polished nude nearly-flat heel for all-day dressier occasions (events, conferences). The reviews seemed mostly solid, so I gave these a try. Loved them. Someone mentioned being only so-so about the pointer toe. I am of the same mind. We must keep in mind what these shoes are pairing with -- the pointier toe on this shoe combined with the dresses and the finer slacks they are intended to be worn with works really well. It's a very sharp look. Try them on together before dismissing Diema. Some pragmatic info: I consider 8 to be my true size. I have a fair collection of 7.5 for shoes that are said to "run large." This is not one of those shoes. It's true to size. I ordered the nude color in patent leather. The nude is a really nice match to my olive skin tone, which matters. (Some nudes are too pink.) I am particularly impressed by the comfort. They are not just comfortable because of the low heel, which is usually a given. They are comfortable because of the sole. Check out the image of the bottom of the shoe. You can feel the difference that you see there. The shoe absorbs some of the shock of a foot strike and this is key to all-day wear. I tend to rank shoes by number of hours they can be worn: 2-hour, 4-hour, and 8-hour. I rank these as a 4-hour shoe out of the box and graduating quickly to 8 after one wear. A quick comparison to Cole Haan: I tried on a similar shoe from Cole Haan, which was also quite comfortable. Diema is just as good at a fraction of the price. Save your money and get Diema. Please note: I cannot say this for all Calvin Klein shoes. For me, they have been hit and miss in terms of comfort.

I have 2 pairs of these. I bought the mink suede (no longer available?) and now the navy. I was a little worried taking the navy out of the box as it looks like the shoe was narrower and more pointed than my other ones. Nope! I work them to work the first time out and wore them 3/4 of the day until I had to take them off as they were still a little stiff. Next time I wore them, they were perfect. Great toe box, my toes weren't scrunched at all and heels were easy to walk in.

I loved the look of these shoes, very cute and stylish; however, they did not fit in the width whatsoever. I admit my feet tend to be a little wide but these shoes cut into my skin across the top of the shoe and the leather is very stiff. I could not even wear them across a room in my house without big discomfort. Unfortunately I had to send them back. Why aren't there more navy shoes available?

I LOVE this shoe!!! I am 5'10" so am always looking for a dressy shoe with a shorter heel. I bought this in the mink suede and have had so many compliments on it. One reviewer said that though they were a pointy toe, your toes weren't squished. This is one of the reason that I love them so much; the toe box is a little wider than other shoes like this I've had. I wore them right out of the box for about 5 hours. They did need a little breaking in, but have been perfect since then. I am going to now buy the other colors.

Zappos shipped immediately and my shoes arrived in 5 days. They were just what I wanted and I am very pleased with my purchase. The fit was what I expected because I have this shoe in another color. I will be ordering from Zappos as often as I can. It saves lots of running around!

Toe box too narrow on a medium width shoe. Toe cleavage (which I hate). The leather is too stiff. I ordered a 7 and a 7.5 but the toe box is still too narrow. The only difference was heel slippage in the larger size. A shame really because they look really nice but they are just all wrong for me!

These shoes are adorable and the black is a shinier color, but not patent. However, I'm going to have to send them back. I have lots of problems with shoes and these were not available in a W. I went ahead and tried them anyway. I could barely fit my feet in, they hurt my toes immediately, and in my opinion, the toe cleavage was terrible. Could be my wide feet making that happen though. It's such a shame that Calvin Kleins don't come in W because this is the perfect shoe!
