Cute & Sassy - Whoever at CK decided on the gel sole insert is a genius. Perfect shoe for the office as well as with jeans, I wish the toe was more needle pointy, but that's just me.

from Chicago area

Very comfortable but sort of boring - I usually wear much higher heels than these shoes, but I needed some comfortable shoes I could easily walk around in, and these fit the bill. The kitten heel is cute, and they are super comfortable. The soles are quite cushioned, and there's plenty of room in the toe box. They are not, however, the most stylish thing probably because they're pretty plain. Still, I wear them and like them. Sometimes I have to sacrifice beauty for comfort--but on the days I want to look really sexy, I skip these.

Calvin Klein's Diema navy pumps - They look great but are not comfortable. The edges are hard. Need processing before wearing it, softening edges.

I bought these as a solution to being clumsy in high heels and also having odd shaped feet (my second toe is WAY longer). I have worn them a couple of times and am pretty happy. I bought a size 7 and am usually a 6.5 or 7. I bought slip-in insoles and those little grippy-things that adhere on the inside of the back of the shoe. With those slight modifications, the shoe fits pretty well. The heel is small, but this is definitely a heel. I don't feel like I'm wearing a ballet flat. The part that goes across the top of the foot does rub a bit on the knuckle of my big toe, so I'm not sure how long I can wear them. Since my feet are rather narrow, I would think folks with regular to wide feet would find them uncomfortable.

Shoes are very cute and have a perfect heel height however they show way too much toe cleavage. Have to return.

I had to exchange this for a half size smaller, as I found these ran large. Even when I bought the correct size, the shoe was cut so that it revealed toe cleavage - very unsightly. I had to return these.

These shoes are definitely cute, although the pointed toe just really isn't my style as I've come to learn. There is quite the bit of toe cleavage. I have to return them because while the shoe fit me almost everywhere, it pinches my big toe and first toe together. Perhaps that is just the "pointed toe" style?

Cute shoe for the office but too narrow. I take a 10 regular width all the time and these felt at least a 1/2 size too small. They're going back.

I really like this shoe, I am on my feet all day and it is comfortable to wear all day. I wish that it was a little more pointy but that is a personal taste. I gave this shoe a three because the tip of one of the shoes has already has a little tear in it after about 5 wears. I colored it in with a black sharpie, but for a Calvin Klein shoe and at this price, I expected that the shoe would hold up a little better after so few wears.

Although cute, these shoes caused blisters on both sides of my feet. They seemed too narrow. Sadly, I have to return them.

Velma E

from Lumberton, NJ

Love the shoe, however, when they arrived (as usual very fast) I was very disappointed, the shoe runs very narrow and the back is short so the tendency is that with a few wears it will hurt and slip off at the same time. The shoe is uncomfortable! I was very surprised since I love and own various pairs of CK shoes. The price also was a little high and when I think of the shoe, way too high. I want to send them back, but I trashed the box and paperwork before wearing them. I did not think that I would have a problem since I have never been unhappy with any of my purchases from Zappos. Keep up the good work.

Love it, can't wear it. Love the look; the low-cut vamp, and the size and shape of the heel. But I couldn't believe how narrow it felt. I would have kept it if I thought there was any chance of stretching it, but I wouldn't be able to wear it long enough to break it in.

I was looking for a simple black shoe with a small heel for work and these fit the bill. They definitely show "toe cleavage" and rub a bit on the sides (around the toe/ball of foot), but I expected that to ease with time and wear.

You ladies are right! These are comfortable but too squeaky on wooden and tile floors. I even tried rubbing baking soda on the bottom, but that did not work. I am sending these back!

I love Zappos, however, this cheap shoe under the CK label was a total flap, too narrow,too short in the heel, too wide across after wearing these shoes twice I had a headache for a day, I gave them to the Goodwill. I will still keep shopping at Zappos,more pros than Cons on their products.

These are ridiculous and will go straight back! It's too bad because they're lovely and seem comfortable enough out of the box (though they are too big - definitely needed a half size smaller). The problem is the squeak noted by a few other reviewers. It is insanely loud. It's true that you can't hear it on carpet, but on any wood, tile, or laminated flooring people will hear you a mile away. It totally ruins the shoe.

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?

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.

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?
