These shoes were a major disappointment in terms of quality and the price tag. I wish the shoes were better made, or I would have kept them! Essentially, the seams had visible glue residue, the leather surface was uneven at the seams, and the patent leather showed signs of wrinkling and fading near the seams. All in all, poor craftsmanship from Stuart Weitzman (what happened SW?!). If you can get past all that poor craftsmanship, I must say both the Hummus and Adobe colors were beautiful; neither colors are too pinky. If you are really pale and going for the flesh-tone shoe, you may want the Hummus; if you are light-medium to medium in skin tone, the Adobe would probably suit you better. And yes, this shoe does run large. I had to order a size 6 (normally a 6.5) for the best fit. The width of the shoe is alright, not as narrow as some other Stuart Weitzman shoes. As always, I love Zappos excellent service and lightning fast shipping!

Trash. Total trash. What happened to SW? Or was this an "oops?" Maybe that's the reason for the sale price. Good SW shoes never go on sale. These run a size too large. They are hard as a rock. The minute you step into them, it feels like sharp knives are cutting into your foot from all around. Returning.

Sorry, but the heel is way higher than indicated. The description says 3.5" with a .5" platform but the heel must have been 4-4.5" inches instead. Therefore, the shoes were too high for me, way too uncomfortable, and I had to return them. That being said, they are absolutely gorgeous. If you can handle a 4 inch heel, then go ahead and enjoy these shoes.

Heartbreaking! This shoe is GORGEOUS. I wanted to keep them so badly. But what a strange fit. I took others' advice and ordered a half size smaller. I can count on one hand the number of shoes I've ever worn in a size 6 - it's usually 6.5 and sometimes 7. Well the 6's were still too long with a huge gap at the heel - and yet felt that if any smaller would be too narrow. Too bad!

Beautiful shoe. Pretty comfy. I have a high arch so it doesn't really fit my arch but it is not a walking shoe so I'm fine with it. Fits amazing. I wear a 9N and the Weitzman and Pliner shoes always fit like a glove.

This shoe was extremely narrow. More narrow than my other Stuart Weitzman Platswoon in nude. It was also much smaller in length. I am not sure if this was just a fluke, but that was my experience. Still a beautiful shoe.

This shoe is gorgeous. The color is perfect and the lines are classic. I usually wear a 7 1/2 but it was too long. The 7 W is the perfect fit. I will wear this with everything.

I wear a size 9 and have a slightly wide foot. These are too tight in the toe box for me. Such a shame because they are beautiful! So sad I have to return them.

I now have 6 pairs of SW Swoon, 2 Corkswoons and my new Topo Summer Linen brings me to 4 Platswoon. I adore every shoe. The Topo Summer Linen came up when I searched for silver. The shoes are silver in some light, gold-tinged in other light. It's difficult to tell what color they are, but that works for me. I bought them as a neutral for all of my bright pink clothes when navy and black feel boring. The mystery color with sheen will be very versatile. These shoes fit the bill...and me. 10M.

I wanted these shoes to be perfect but the second I put them on I knew they had to go back! They were extremely uncomfortable. the opening of the shoe is so coarse and tight in weird places. the toe box wasn't bad but the rest of the shoe was! Very Very disappointing

I have three pairs of Platswoons. I wear the adobe (nude) practically every day in the summer (as they unfortunately match my increasingly pale skintone), sometimes upwards of 16 hours, and I'm fine. Granted, I've always been pretty good with heels, but these are the most wearable heels I have (far more so than any Cole Haans or Kate Spades). The mini-platform definitely helps. The patent ones were a teensy bit tight at first, but after a week or so they were perfect. I also have them in cork, and got caught in a rainstorm for an hour at 3am in the LES looking for a cab in them and they held up (was expecting them to be ruined).

These are really cute and actually comfortable but will have to go back. I ordered an 8.5N, which I usually wear, and while these are narrow in the toe box, they are too wide in the heel and slip off when I try to walk. Adobe is a great neutral.

These are beautiful shoes. Unfortunately, the finish on the uppers was very uneven. It looked worn out in places, which is odd for a brand new pair of shoes. Not great workmanship. Also, the height seemed more like 4" which made them too uncomfortable for me. Back in the box to Zappos and on to another pair!

A terrific classic nude (adobe aniline) pump! Very comfortable considering height of heel. One thing to take note of is that shoe runs slightly bigger than normal - easily remedied with a cushion placed at base of front of shoe. In my case, I regularly wear a 9M - because these are patent pumps, I ordered 9W which I find provides the extra give with patent leather. Cushion just helps to not have foot slide forward and slip off in back.

I have a wide midfoot (bunions), but a normal width heel. While Stuart Weitzman is one of the few, quality brands that offer wide (C) widths, I have avoided buying them because in the past, I've found that their C width makes the heel of the shoe too wide, while the front of the shoe fits perfectly. As a result, my heel slips out. I've tried other size/width combinations of theirs as well, but to no avail. Last month, I thought I would give experiment and give them one more try, in the hopes that they've tweaked their sizing over the years to better accommodate a foot shape such as my own (which is, by the way, a fairly common shape). To my disappointment, they haven't. While I love these shoes in every other way - especially the cushion comfort that the platform offers for an otherwise high-heeled shoe - the width at the heel is a huge frustration. I've put a heel adhesive in the back, which has helped a tad, but still have slippage after a few steps. If I put an insert in the mid foot, this helps even more, but then I have a new problem - the top of my foot rubs against the edge of the upper, and it's painfully irritating. If you have similar challenges, I don't recommend Stuart Weitzman. Otherwise, they've created a very stylish, classy, and versatile, high-quality shoe. I've had better luck with Ferragamo C width shoes and Donald Pliner. DP makes Medium width shoes that provide enough give to fit my wide foot.

Order these a half size smaller for the best fit (I previously ordered the same shoe in a different color in my true size and the heels slipped quite a bit -- this time they fit perfectly). The texture of the leather is a bit odd, but it's interesting. However, there are spots where it looks like the color's faded. Makes the shoes look dirty -- not sure how I feel about that or if it's supposed to be that way -- I intend to call customer service just to make sure it's not a defect. Otherwise, I love them and may order another pair in a third color.

I love these shoes -- great color. I was very excited to see that they came in 11-1/2 (very unusual) so I snapped them up quickly, but they are about a half size too large. I needed them in a hurry so I didn't have time to try a smaller size. That being said, in spite of them being a little too big, they are extremely comfortable (I wore them to a wedding and was on my feet all day).

Love. So sexy in the goosebump. I have been lusting over these for several months. The texture is awesome. The gray or the wine color are both fabulous. Alas, they did not have the wine in my size. It would not hurt to order down 1/2 size. I am a 9.5 and still stepped out of them when wearing tights. I put the heel pads on and solved it.

Very lovely shoe, but does run a tad tight. I recommend going a half size larger for a comfy fit. It's a very sexy shoe, so it's worth the minor discomfort... just suck it up! The compliments you'll get are well worth it! Perfect for the holidays!

I love the look of these shoes and decided to give them a try. I wear heels all the time, but could not keep these on my feet! My heels slipped out repeatedly even with heel pads. Weitzman shoes usually fit my feet like a glove, but not these!

I love these shoes so much that I have them in 16 color/material combinations. They do run half a size large, so i order a 7 but wear a 7.5 in other Weitzman styles. The heels tend to stretch after long wear so I use Foot Petals, but the fact that I can wear these shoes all day at this heel height is fantastic! I walk about 3 miles during the course of a normal day in the office and these hold up beautifully. Some of the snakeskin styles (Whips comes to mind) show some uneven edges at the instep and where the platform meets the upper - so you have to choose carefully. The patents are elegant, but the goosebumps go just as well with jeans/leggings as they do with a tailored suit. Now, if I could get a navy patent...
